James Burton is a DJ/ producer based in Darlington, UK. In the past two years Burton has been tucked away in the North East of England crafting his sound. However Burton has more than one string to his bow, running one of the most highly rated small club events in the UK, Music Matters.
Since Music Matters launch in April 2016, his work ethic and passion has translated into Burton booking and playing alongside some of the world's biggest names in House and Techno; Elliot Adamson, Richy Ahmed, Max Chapman, De La Swing, Jasper James, OC & Verde, Jamie Roy, Skream, Solardo, Tuff London, wAFF and Waifs & Strays.
All the while Burton built Music Matters from the ground up he was gaining respect and support from his close knit group of friends, internationally renowned artists Richy Ahmed, Jackmaster, Skream and Patrick Topping. This is in large part due to Burton trailblazing his own production path, gathering inspiration from the frequencies heard in the clubs of Ibiza and Festivals around the world to deliver a unique fusion of genres in his productions.
This culminated in a début release titled 'That Sounds Sick!' on Darius Syrossian's 'Do Not Sleep' Ibiza Sampler in 2016 which was followed up with his massive 'The Music Matters' EP on Skream's imprint Of Unsound Mind. It gained ultimate recognition when it was exclusively premiered by Annie Mac on BBC Radio 1.
During this time Burton has become renowned for his ability to deliver multi-genre sets. He seamlessly weaves sounds from House, Tech-House and Techno whilst unafraid to push the boundaries by infusing his sets with progressive house,disco, funk and trance elements.
In summer 2017 he played across Ibiza at some of the island's superclubs such as Eden, Sankeys, Ibiza Rocks and DC-10. With all of this under his belt in such a short space of time James Burton is without doubt 'one to watch' in 2018 and beyond.
