James Marvel quickly caught the attention of industry heads after being commissioned to remix Xilent’s epic computer game themed single, ‘Boss Wave’ with his reworking of the original featured in the annual compilation ‘Drum and Bass Arena 2013.’ James Marvel’s remix raced up the charts upon its official release on ‘Boss Wave: Reloaded’ remix EP in May.
James Marvel is now ready to tear through the fabric of bass music, showcasing his versatility and technical brilliance with his debut release on AudioPorn Records - ‘I Am The Robot’ EP.
‘I Am The Robot’
Opening with an android vocoder hook, this half-stepping ball of pure energy quickly escalates into a full on smasher with a wall of bright synths and a seriously funky melody. Prepare yourself for raw Neurofunk dancefloor madness!
Grabbing your attention from the first luscious beat, this exquisite liquid roller is accentuated by airy and atmospheric vocals. ‘Stone Cold’ is delicious, light and beautiful due to it’s polished simplicity and flawless production. This is a standout on the EP and undeniable proof of James Marvel’s adaptability to different styles.
‘Focus ft. One87’
Following on from a haunting soundscape intro that’s bound to give you chills, ‘Focus’ dives into a thick beat amidst grainy dark bass. Built for the underground, this tidy collaboration with One87 is ready to annihilate every dancefloor it touches.
Shifting arpeggios and Nero-esque synths, the intro builds up to explode into a face-melting barrage of beautifully intertwined Neurofunk. In a masterful fusion of relentless beats and a gliding symphony of futuristic synths, ‘Synchronicity III’ leaves behind a trail of sonic destruction.
