DJing since he was 16 and producing for three years, James Mowbray got involved with Four:Twenty with D Ramirez, when the two sent some demos to the label. A&R liked what they heard and as Mowbray got off the plane in Ibiza he got a call saying they wanted to sign him. A year and a three-track deal later we have James mixing their first ever compilation. James also holds a monthly residency at Turnmills for Soundworx, where he will hold a London launch party on July 14th.
The mixed CD includes tracks from Buttrich (Loco Dice's production partner), Phonique, Jesse Rose, Drama Society, James Mowbray & D Ramirez, Mowbray & Sullivan, Tolfrey & Sylvester, Adultnapper and more. The mix was done live and in one take using Serato Scratch Live:
"The mix is 80 minutes of music that moves me and I feel passionate about, some of it new, some of it tracks that have played an important part in my DJ sets over the past 18 months. There's no high concept or long months of post-production and edits that no-one will even notice. I wanted to let the tracks speak for themselves, so I recorded it completely live", James Mowbray states. The eight track unmixed bonus CD includes highlights from the label and exclusive releases from early Loco Dice, Buttrich, TG and Daniel Taylor.
Four:twenty presents:Music01 - mixed by James Mowbray is released July 10.
The artwork and packaging for this release is designed by Bristol spray-can artist Dicy. To encourange other artists to get their work out there Four:Twenty are running a competition for an unknown artist to design the artwork for the next Four:Twenty release: Buttrich's "Well Done" (first track on James' mix).
To enter the artwork MUST be in 12" by 12" format and needs to be non digital - ie acryllic, spray paint, chalk, crayon, sketched (no potato prints or finger painting!!) - send a digital photograph to firstname.lastname@example.org. The winner/ runners up will then be contacted and would need to send the finished artwork to the label.
The winner's design will be the front cover for 1000 limited edition 12s" of Buttrich's "Well Done/Audiofeel" released August 28th which will feature a remix from a very special artist. The runners up designs will feature on the back.
