OUT NOW: JAMES CURD – Think You Know
GET IT AT BEATPORT HERE.
Pretty excited to have James Curd on Exploited.
James Curd began his DJing career in Chicago when he was only fifteen years old. Being underage, Curd was snuck into events to play at raves and clubs he was not legally allowed in. He played along side some of electronic’s most respected acts and DJs.
As ‘Greenskeepers’ Curd released an array of music on Derric Carter’s Classic Records. He made his mark on the dance music world by infusing swing music and Chicago house to invent the term G-Swing, being short for Greenskeepers Swing. Around this time he also started a record label by the name ‘Greenskeepers Music’.
Curd released four full-length albums under Greenskeepers.
Under his solo name James Curd released on DFA, Permanent Vacation, Eskimo and Bang Gang to name a few. He has remixed Hercules & Love Affair, Juan Maclean, Groove Armada, Poolside, Flight Facilities and DJ CAM.
For his debut on Exploited, James hooked up with synth wizard/producer Luke Godson from Adelaide, Australia. Godson is one half of disco futurists “The Swiss” and also the man behind the cheeky tunes of “Luke Million”. Together they are Luke & Jimmy.
On ‘Think You Know’ James features Annabel Weston from Australian band ‘Archie’.
We hope you enjoy the tracks as much as we do. A little bit more indie this time…
