Novel pres. James Zabiela


Friday November 22nd 2019



James Zabiela is one of dance music's premiere technical wizards. In a way that only a handful of DJs have ever been able to, the Brit has turned CDJs into a bona fide instrument. In fact, he is such an expert that he advises Pioneer on their products and takes prototypes out for test runs. He has created the perfect performance through a complex approach that incorporates loops, effects, and live editing. This singular approach led to global bookings from the US to South America to Asia and Europe. Zabiela has been active since the early 2000s, with several mix CDs and original productions for Renaissance. He also runs his own label Born Electric, which has released techno and house from the likes of Pedram, Pedestrian and Drew Hill. Following a year spent playing at events ranging from Space Ibiza to Ultra Miami and Resistance, we welcome the return of one of techno’s most colourful, varied and vibrant selectors.
