In 2001, Stones Throw label boss Peanut Butter Wolf was DJ-ing at a High-School prom when he first met James Pants. Sharply dressed and with his prom-date in tow, James approached the DJ booth and formally introduced himself to one of his heroes.
Not long afterward, he was offered an internship at Stones Throw which turned into every young beat-freak’s dream when Wolf signed him as an artist.
A multi instrumentalist, long-time record fiend and all round embracer of the leftfield groove, James’s musical passions are infinitely diverse, taking in 80’s soul, early rap, electro boogie, disco, new wave, and even new age!
His debut album ‘Welcome’ somehow reflected all of these influences whilst still maintaining its own unique and distinctly fresh.
