NUDE111: Diego James

Share

Diego James cut his teeth spinning vinyl over a decade ago and hasn’t looked back. Break dancing out of the womb, this Colombian has music pulsing through his DNA.

You’re invited to partake in the journey that is Diego James. This break dancer-turned-DJ hails from Brooklyn, where the strong roots of electronic music took hold. He gained vital exposure in the stomping grounds of Crobar, Shelter, Sound Factory, and Pacha.

His sound started as deep house which after his Berghain pilgrimage matured into dirty techno with splashes of hardcore rave and high tech minimal. His ruthless, energetic, unpredictable sound keeps dancers locked to the dance floor.

Today, he joins on the podcast for the first time. Listen to it below, on Mixcloud or iTunes here.

Sum up this podcast in 10 words…

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.
