Download Teaser Mix By James Zabiela, Playing Vagabond on Friday
But one producer still pushing the sonic envelope in the spirit of the old-school prog pioneers is the UK's James Zabiela.
Boasting a maverick blend of techno, house, breaks and psychedelic electronica, he has emerged as one of the most forward-thinking EDM artists of the last decade. Not to mention a major technological trailblazer, having helped Pioneer Electronics test and develop many of its innovations in music technology.
It's no surprise then that Zabiela would get signed to Sasha's Excession agency or that he's put out his fair share of bombs on John Digweed's Bedrock imprint.
Catch the eminent James Zabiela during an exclusive performance at the Vagabond on Friday. In the meantime, get a taste for his left-field mind-expanding musical stylings in this teaser mix.
