EMF, Bentley Rhythm Ace, Beauty School, Cooler, Asbo Kid, James Atkin
James is responsible for singing one of the biggest hits of the 90s ‘Unbelievable’ with the band EMF. He went on to have massive success clocking up a No. 1 American single, platinum album sales and an Ivor Novello nomination for song writing.
James was also heavily involved with the seminal dance act ‘Bentley Rhythm Ace’; this saw him headlining numerous festivals and electronic music events all over the world. Most recently his ‘Asbo Kid’ project (with Justin Welch ex Elastica) has received critical acclaim gaining no less than three consecutive singles of the month in the cult British magazine DJ Mag.
In 2014 James released his first solo material project, A Country Mile, with the Russian born producer Vladimir Komarov. There was also collaboration with his old writing partner Ian Dench from EMF.
James released his second solo album, The Party Faithful, in 2016 following another successful Pledgemusic campaign. The Party Faithful is now available on James’ BigCartel store and i-tunes.
James’ 3rd solo album, Popcorn Storm was released on Easter 2019. Taking it back to his electronic roots James squirreled himself away at his home studio to create something to get the brave ravers dancing with big beats, basslines and his unique brand of vocals, melodies and hooks. Popcorn Storm is available to order now exclusively through JamesAtkinMusic before going on general release in the summer. Stay tuned for updates…..
