James Burton returns to ‘Of Unsound Mind’ with ‘Keys, Notes & Scales’


James Burton returns to Of Unsound Mind with another record oozing attitude and soul.

James career booted off in style with his debut release ‘That Sounds Sick!’ on Darius Syrossian’s Do Not Sleep ‘Ibiza Sampler’ in 2017. Since then, Burton has offered up visionary takes on house and techno through respected imprints Four Thirty Two, Kaluki Musik, New Violence Recordings, Shanghaied. In addition to becoming a member of the Skream family with regular releases on his imprint.

The whole EP follows a narrative of funky and soulful old school vocals, rumbling tech bottom ends with a house-infused mid-range made up of Detroit inspired chordy stabs, and fresh sounding drum grooves. James Burton was inspired by the old school piano house tracks and classic house sounds of yesteryear with his own inimitable twist.

The lead track from the EP ‘Keys, Notes & Scales’ has already received heavy support on BBC Radio 1 from Annie Mac and label boss Skream, who then went on to sign the track off the back of him premiering the track on Pete Tong’s show back in December.

We premiere ‘Keys, Notes & Scales’ for you today, check it out below and grab it here.

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
