Long before James Curd
was jet setting from London to Tokyo slinging records on the decks, he was spinning loft parties and raves at the ripe old age of 15 in Chicago. By 19, he had already established himself as a premiere DJ in the Chicago club scene and surrounding cities where just a year later he was guest-DJing at soem of the city's best dance clubs, all while holding down residencies alongside DJs Derrick Carter
and Gene Ferris
James is currently running three record labels:
- Greenkeepers Music (formerly called Static), which has releases from Diz, Gene Farris, Demarkus Lewis, Ron Carroll, Atjazz and Mike Dixon.
- Igloo Music that is the by-product of James and Diz's love to steal well known songs and remix them.
- G-Swing is a joint venture between James and Romain from Basenotic. The label is dedicated to the swing-house style that James has decidedly made his own after the initial success of ..What's Your Man Got To Do With Gan?.. released on Classic Records.
Now Greenkeepers are really seeing things take off with the current success of tracks such as ..Should I Sing Like This?.. (Classic) and ..Keep Quiet.. (G-Swing); and the future looks bright with a plethora of releases for 2007.
