You are probably asking your self who James Pants is… well read on and it will all become clear!
This one man phenomenon heralds from a small, isolated home town in Spokane, Washington, where he locks himself up in his garage and makes some of the funkiest, other worldly genre-defying music you’ll hear this year. But to truly know the man behind the pants, we have to travel back to 2001, to a rave in Texas.
Stones Throw head honcho Peanut Butter Wolf was DJing – when a sharply dressed young man approached the DJ booth with his prom date in tow to formally introduce himself and offered to take him record shopping. What began as a dream prom night to see his hero DJ lead to an internship at the label, and eventually on to landing the ultimate fantasy and being signed to the roster. He’s being championed as the “next big thing” by none other than Peanut Butter Wolf himself, and critics from magazines such as Urb, XLR8R, and Dazed & Confused.
James Pants has that “new sound” that appeals to the masses, for sure. If you go to the new downtown clubs any night of the week, you’ll hear that unmistakable fresh beat, of which Mr. Pants is a purveyor par excellence: 80’s soul, electro boogie, early rap, new wave, & post-punk disco, all of which can be found on this EP.
This 5 tracker only touches the surface of James’ many styles and with an added bonus of a Peanut Butter Wolf edit this is a sure fire winner and will no doubt find its way onto sure to it’s way to many a dance-floor!
Reactions, reviews and radio plays are a must for this release and do keep a look out for the album “Welcome” which hits the streets in May!!
