You may recognise James from his skin hitting duties in the jaw droppingly good The Pattern Theory. So it'll come as no surprise that his solo show is something to behold - organic electronics, perfect drums, spot on percussion and mad-as-a-hatter inventiveness. Four Tet or Battles are reference points, but he surpasses them. On his own.
