DJ James Spencer

April 11, 2011 in Music, News by James Grant

James Spencer is an established figure in the world of cross-genre DJing. With a style that incorporates everything from Electro House to Hip Hop, he is a versatile club DJ, comfortable in front of any crowd.

James Spencer’s has a wide range of experience in the UK’s major cities, having started his DJ career at the young age of 11 doing mobile discos for people his age. At the age of just 15, he managed to come third in an Under 18 DJ contest, which brought a host of new opportunities in many up market London clubs. This lead to bookings from some of Soho and Mayfair’s most exclusive clubs, performing alongside the likes of Tim Westwood and DJ Semtex.

In 2006, James formed Allure Events, a corporate events company with the aim of breaking into a whole new market. This added to his experience in hosting, organising and co-ordinating events. Moreover, in 2009, another company Ice Breaker was created, which found a niche market for Under 16 themed events.

From all this he began to build a fan base and start a weekly club night called ‘Fusion Fridays’, which along with his mixtapes, have been key reasons for his rapid growth in popularity.

In September 2010, James moved to Birmingham in order to establish himself in a new scene, gaining jobs at The HMV Institute, Custard Factory, Air, The Guild and Chameleon Bar in his opening month. With 2011 starting to get booked up quickly, who knows what the future holds for this young DJ.
