- Scientific Funk


Scientific Funk is the name veteran underground house fan James Harrison goes by. James has been involved in the music scene since the early 90s. He's an award winning DJ from Mixmag; ran an underground record shop in his home town of Portsmouth before moving to London and immersing himself in the South London tech-house scene that centred around Swag Records. His first release came on Leftfield's underground label Offshoot back in 2000. He then set up Scientific Funk Recordings, which found favour with the likes of Mr C and Murf and their Subterrain night at The End along with Laurent Garnier, Jamie Anderson and Dan Curtain. Remixes then appeared on Billy Nasty's Electrix label and Surreal recordings before James disappeared off the map. 11 years past and he suddenly popped up on Nathan Coles' Is This? Label last year, as Cactus Jack (himself, Richie Collins and Merle). Two tracks from this ep became the label's biggest sellers of the past 12 months on Beatport thanks to support from Terry Francis, Maceo Plex and many other respected DJs. This release led to his much acclaimed "Crotchless Onesie ep" on the iconic Wiggle label which catapulted him in to many record boxes and a string of ep and remix requests.
