James Lavelle @ Kristal Summer Club,Mamaia,Romania,16/08/2008

James Lavelle (born 1974 in Oxford, England) is a DJ, electronic recording artist and record label boss. He is best known for producing work in the trip hop, breakbeat and house music genres.

Born into a family with a strong tradition of music, Lavelle first began by learning the cello with his granny in Oxford.

While attending Cherwell Upper School, Lavelle’s music career started at 15 when he ran block parties in Oxford. At only 18 he started the Mo’ Wax label, taking the name from his club night at the time, Mo’ Wax Please. Around the same time he started the That’s How It Is night with Gilles Peterson, which went on to become one of London’s longest running nights.

In 1996 Mo’ Wax released one of electronic music’s most celebrated albums, DJ Shadow’s seminal Endtroducing…… Soon after this Lavelle started work on an album with DJ Shadow under the name UNKLE. The resulting release Psyence Fiction featured collaborations with Richard Ashcroft, Mike D, Badly Drawn Boy and Thom Yorke. In 2003, he released a follow up to Psyence Fiction, titled Never, Never, Land, though this album saw DJ Shadow replaced by Richard File as the second full time member of UNKLE. It featured collaborations with 3D of Massive Attack and Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age among others.

He is a long time resident at Fabric in London, mixing the inaugural Fabric Live mix album. He has also mixed two progressive house albums for Global Underground.

He has produced a number of film soundtracks, including Sexy Beast. Also an in demand remixer, he has reworked tracks by Garbage, The Verve, Beck and Massive Attack.

In an August 2006 interview with skinnymag.co.uk, Lavelle revealed that he’s working with Chriss Goss and Autolux on the follow up to Never, Never, Land, entitled War Stories. Of the album’s direction, he said “It’s rawer than ‘‘Psyence Fiction’’ and Never, Never, Land although it’s more in the vein of the traditional singer/songwriter. If the first record was UNKLE does hiphop and the second record was UNKLE does electronic, then this one is like UNKLE does rock, but it’ll hopefully still have its continuity.”

Of other forthcoming projects, he revealed “I’m working on a film with Darren Aronofsky at the moment. It’s a collaboration between me and Clint Mansell who did the score, it’s to remix the score and do a whole new DVD package, the film is unbelievable. I’m working on a documentary about Abel Ferrara as well.”
