Jameszoo kicked off his career as a DJ opening for luminaries like Kode9 and Modeselektor in Holland mostly. A committed crate-digger and cognoscente of avant-garde jazz, he recently moved into production work on the acclaimed Kindred Spirits label and Rwina Records. His releases join the dots between influences like Hermeto Pascoal, Sun Ra, and the leftfield beat music of the LA and Europe scenes, creating a sound that’s as colourful and forward-thinking as it is chaotic and experimental. He has remixed artists like Shlohmo, Nightmares on wax collaborated with Thundercat, Coultrain and recently convinced legendary Brazilian guitarist Arthur Verocai to hit the studio for a few sessions. With ancient-to-future power moves like these already under his belt, it’s safe to say that this zookeeper is a unique breed of astral animal.
