Join Sherif and Refused label boss Justin James as they weave an otherworldly tapestry of house and techno for the latest edition of Sherif and friends.
Opening set from Stephanie Szud
Justin hails from Windsor, Ontario the same city as his label boss and techno icon Richie Hawtin. With Richie, Dubfire and many others as close, guiding influences, James has used this ammunition to fire his way to international recognition.
Being just across the river from the revered school of Detroit producers have not left James unmoved. The powerful emotions deep within the seminal tracks that emanate from across the border resound heavily in him. Being touched by this rich
history has deeply influence James' music production, sharing his own vision of techno with other like-minded souls. A slew of creativity is already available, through releases quickly signed to powerhouse international labels such as Richie Hawtin's
'Minus' and Dubfire's 'Sci+Tec.' James has taken his vision to the next level by curating his own imprint «refused.» — a record label, which will showcase forward thinking techno from himself, established artists and up-and-coming talent from around the globe. Justin James is all about his deep love of the diverse elements of techno. His juxtaposition of raw techno with more organic elements gives him boundless energy in the studio and behind the decks, which keeps the dance-floor.
