Therapy 6/7/12 :: James Hunter


First appearing about the city haunting DJ booths and taking copious notes, James Hunter quickly joined the ranks on the working circuit with dual skills in the club and in the studio. His DJ sets followed his own internal beat, and his intial forays into production had shown a talent for designing intelligent tunes that moved the club too.

Over time James had developed an arsenal of club focused deep and groovy weapons that were gaining the attention of several European record labels. Initially making traction with a series of releases on Affin, releases on Klangpunkt, City Life, Elektro System, Monog records and more soon followed, painting him as an upcoming producer of note. More court time followed in Brisbane’s clubs too laying out groovy deep tech house displays at Subtrakt, Auditree and once before with us here at Therapy. James joins us this Friday at Therapy with a fresh bag of his own new tracks to test out on the floor, and a stash of hot, deep and fresh favourites to help move the club along with a solid groove.

As Adrian Matyear, he held down residencies at Family, Press Club, Barsoma and Jade Buddha concurrently for the better part of six years, along with regular showings at Subtrakt, Drop, Deeparture, Cloudland and more. His influence on Brisbane was obvious, with hundreds of local and international DJs performing alongside him at Therapy, and thousands of clubbers each week polishing the floor in the club. As an active member of the Sundae team, he also contributed to the massive success of the event over the last decade, and confirmed his ability to make a party jump any time of night or day. Having supported regarded international names like James Lavelle, Derrick Carter, Rocky from Xpress2, Steve Bug, Tim Green, Steve Lawler, and more, he is regarded both locally and internationally for his chugging, ground hugging house and deep wobbly techno.
