James Spratling
Profilo:
Though he's one of the youngest members of the Metalheadz stable, James Spratling debuted back in 1992 with tracks recorded for the Planet Earth label. Similar to the other Metalheadz, Majik's 12"s are dark affairs, with some of the best drum'n'bass lines around, though he leavens the brew with jazzy flourishes, like the Spanish guitar prevalent on the flip side of his first single for Metalheadz, "Your Sound". Living in Northwood, England, he began DJing in the early '90s -- while in his early teens -- and recorded "6 Million Ways to Die" in 1992 as DJ Dexxtrous. Two more singles followed for Planet Earth before the real DJ Dextrous became known to him, after which he turned to the alias J. Majik for his 1994 debut on Metalheadz, "Your Sound". The track was an undeniable classic, and later showed up on the Platinum Breakz compilation. Besides later singles for Metalheadz such as "Jim Kutta" and "Arabian Knights", Majik records for Mo'Wax as well as his own Infra Red label, which released his debut LP, Slow Motion, in mid-1997. After this he could put others anthems into the clubs: In 2002 James was one of a selected Drum and bass artists to reach the Uk Top 40 with the classic "Love is Not A Game " on Defected records. In that same year J Majik won Track of the year at the UK Drum and Bass awards for his remix of Spaced Invader which changed the direction of the scene at the time and created a new sub Genre called Liquid DNB which had influences of early Detroit techno and subtle house influences. J has continued to release music on Metalheadz and his own imprint Infrared Records and is still releasing music in 2019 on his own label Infrared Records and is also part owner of Deep Jungle Records with long time friend Dj Harmony.
