Scientific Funk aka James Harrison is rapidly emerging as one of the hottest underground producers and DJs in the UK – confirmed by DJ Mag when it tweeted he is a 'rising star'. His music receives regular plays by the likes of Carl Cox, Umek, Richie Hawtin, Terry Francis, wAFF, Jey Kurmis and Colin Dale. Richie Hawtin played “South Coast Dubs “ no less than three times! His previous seven releases have all featured in the top 30 or above, including 5 top 10s, with “Dirtbox” going to no1 for 2 weeks in the Techno Top 100. 2015 saw him finish up in Traxsource's Top 100 Techno Artists for 2015.

2016 saw the launch of his own label, Dark Rhythms, and tracks off the first two eps reached no7 and no14 in the Techno Top 100. The rest of the year sees a string of releases on this label and eps and remixes for Cubism and Something Different Again. James now appears on the first two Thursdays of the month on S-Dancelive.com on FM across London and via the internet for the rest of the World, with the Rotation Radio Show, showcasing underground house and techno.

Since returning to the scene 5 years ago James has climbed the label ladder with Wiggle, Cubism, Bulletdodge Claire Ripley’s Phobic imprint all under his belt. His remix of KoreVex was licensed to Beatport's Baseware ADE 2014 album as well as Eddie Richards Ibiza 2014 album.

As a DJ James is someone who simply has that ability to make people dance. He likes to take in the spectrum on underground house and techno music. His preferred sets are a smooth journey through deep house, tech-house and techno, but he's equally adept at staying within a single genre. He builds an infectious groove around percussive rhythms and bass line influenced tracks interspersed with vocals and more melodic and acidic elements - a Scientific Funk set constantly evolves. This talent has come from being involved within the scene since the late 80s – ‘It’s all house or techno to me,” says the genre defying DJ Producer. His behind the deck talents have taken him across Europe with regular bookings in Croatia, Ibiza and Spain. You could put him in any house or techno club in the World and he would bring his own unique flavour to the night and excel. His new night Rotation is now in full swing in central London!!

James major break on his return came in 2013 with his 'Crotchless Onesie ep' on Terry Francis and Nathan Coles' legendary Wiggle label. However, the story doesn't begin there. James is a veteran underground house DJ and producer, recently described by Defected's Wez Saunders as a 'seasoned pro'. James has been involved in the music scene since the late 80s. He's an award winning DJ from Mixmag; ran an underground record shop in his home town of Portsmouth before moving to London and immersing himself in the South London tech-house scene that centred around the infamous Swag Records and nights like Wiggle and Subterrain.

His first release came on Leftfield's underground label Offshoot back in 2000. He then set up Scientific Funk Recordings, which found favour with the likes of Mr C and Murf at their Subterrain night at The End along with Laurent Garnier, Jamie Anderson and Dan Curtain. Remixes then appeared on Billy Nasty's Electrix label and Surreal recordings before James disappeared off the map. 11 years past and he suddenly popped up on Nathan Coles' Is This? Label, as Cactus Jack (himself and Pointblank FM's Richie Collins). Two tracks from this ep became the label's biggest sellers on Beatport at the time thanks to support from Terry Francis and Maceo Plex. This release led to his much acclaimed "Crotchless Onesie ep" on the iconic Wiggle label, which catapulted him in to many record boxes and a string of remix requests.
