There’s a reason James Zabiela falls in the category of being a DJ’s DJ. He’s widely considered to be the man who figured out how to properly manipulate CDJ’s, an industry standard. In fact, he was invited to Pioneer HQ in Japan to spin a private party for the CEO. If there’s one thing that can be said about James Zabiela, it’s that he is without question one of most technically gifted DJs in the world.
Most DJs and producers have to be a little geeky. Think about it… they have to know the intricacies of mixing, mastering, the equations that make effects plug-ins work, they need to know how to layer this bass on top of that one and how to do it with perfection. Shit, even guys like Timbaland, Scott Storch and Swizz Beats have to be a little dorky deep down.
The difference between those guys and James Zabiela is that JZ admits it. The self-proclaimed nerd and Star Wars junkie will be at Lima Restaurant & Lounge on Thursday to display what happens when you combine a tech-geek, music and a ton of DJ toys… Utterly brilliant music, obviously.
