Members: My Self
Judo Being Judo Being (aka James Burnham), born in Birmingham, West Midlands, is a multi instrumentalist and producer. Growing up in a musical family with a classical training in violin from the age of four, he knew from then on that his career was going to be doing what he loved best, Music. From the age of twelve he started learning Lead and Bass guitar, playing in numerous bands, he gained extensive experience for song writing and playing live. Soon after Judo was learning how to record his bands using four tracks', which was when his passion for recording and sound grew. Listening to German krautrock bands like Can, Neu, Amon DÃ¼Ã¼l II, gave him a good grounding in sound crafting, mixing organic and electronic sound together. Then came Castle Morton Rave, the biggest free party the UK has ever seen, being exposed there to Spiral Tribe and Circus Warp, his love for Acid music grew. In 2000, he started working with Lawrence Ash and launched Fortress 5 Studio. This gave Judo the sound engineering and production experience he needed, often still in the studio working through the night on a tune until it was time for the next band to come in. Also having his first access to a pair of 12.10s he started Djing playing a weekly slot at a Cheltenham Club and soon honed down his Djing Skills. Judo went on to become a Bass Player for the Mystery School Ensemble (Artefact Records), based in London in 2002. After a year mixing and promoting parties as Unauthorized, Bristol (UK) he finally chose a sound that he couldn't resist, hypnotic and experimental.
