Justin James: Interview


The first words that comes to your mind when you hear Inspiration, Passion, and Strength




Who are you? (Answer how you interpret this question)

I can only be me.

Why do you do what you do?

I do what I do out of passion and the honour to contribute to culture.

When did you know this is what you wanted to do, and what events led you to choose it?

An evening in Detroit listening to the sounds and selections of Mix Master Mike, John Acquaviva and Richie Hawtin put everything into perspective for me.

Toughest thing you had to overcome to do what you do? And what/who helped you?

Find my own sound in music production.  Conversations with mentors such as Dubfire and Richie Hawtin were critical in this development.

Has anyone/anything ever inspired you to become who you are (to follow your dreams)? Have you ever inspired anyone directly?

I’ve had amazing individuals who have shaped me into what I am today. Each of which is inspirational. I hope that I can pay this inspiration to some other individuals.

One mistake that you made in your journey? How have you learnt from them?

All we can ask of ourselves is that we learn from our mistakes. We are meant to make mistakes. But we should also have the capacity to not make the same mistakes again.

Upcoming projects? Plans/goal? (about anything, if you have any)

Loads of projects on the go. Look for lots of new music, a new label and touring around everywhere.  

What advice would you give to other people? (Just about life in general - It could be about anything)

Love and love in return.

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

Be kind.
