Renegade Riddims: Section
James from Section has been involved in the Drum & Bass scene since the mid-90s, initially DJing in his local town of Brighton before spreading his wings to various venues across the country as well as playing at Winter Music Conference in Miami and Koncrete Jungle and Remedy in New York. During the past decade, he has focused more on the production side of music and has had a string of regular releases on various labels including; Dread, Skeleton, Counterpoint, Audio Addict, Deep In The Jungle, Directors Cut, Format and on Rebel Music and Dope Plates as one half of Dark Ops which is a project James has formed with Flashback.
In 2017 he started Locked Up Music as an outlet for his own productions and to provide a platform for rising stars, who may have otherwise been overlooked. This month marks the label’s 20th release and James has compiled his favourite 20 tracks from the label’s rich back catalogue ‘Locked Up 20’.
Outside of the music projects, James works as an NHS Physiotherapist at Worthing Hospital in West Sussex and as a thank you to all of them for their continuous hard work during the past few weeks, James has decided to donate ALL of the proceeds from the album to the hospital’s charity; Love Your Hospital.
The album will be available on Locked Up Music’s Bandcamp page from 15th June with a full release across all digital and streaming platforms from 13th July. You can also donate directly via James’ JustGiving page.
James has provided us with a 60 minute mix consisting of all 20 tracks from the forthcoming album and which showcases the breadth and depth of Locked Up Music’s back catalogue.
Check out James’ mix below, we hope you enjoy it and please, please show your respects and support and donate to this fabulous cause if you are able to. Click here to grab the album!
