James Holden Is At The Controls

UK based label, Resist Music is to release James Holden's follow up 2003 'Balance 005' mix CD with a brand new double CD named At The Controls on March 13th. For Holden this mix represents a technological evolution from 2003's 'Balance 005' mix which utilised a Cycloops sampler and CDJ-1000 wizardry.

"The idea was just to make a compilation that I'd think is good", states James by matter of fact. "Mostly I hate DJ mixes, so that's the main thing that influenced this - trying to justify my 2 CDs with a load of music that I really love. Through Resist we've been able to get permission to use some tracks I never dreamt I'd be able to get, so it's turned out being a cross section of music that I'm really happy with. Lot's of it comes from the little family of friends around Border Community. And recommendations from my hairdresser!" he says jokily. "And of course the depths of my iTunes folder - things I've been listening to for 10 years wanting to put on a mix CD."

As the Border Community Express ploughs on into the future, here once again we find James Holden steadfast 'At The Controls'.
