Although James Egbert has been writing and producing music for most of his life, it wasn't until 2011 that he decided to jump into the world of EDM where he has quickly established himself as one of the most talented up and coming artists in the scene. Perfecting the heavy bass sounds that drive electro house and dubstep bangers, James adds an important emphasis on musicality and attention to detail that has allowed his tracks to stand out among the rest.
After locking in his very first live performance on the main stage of Global Dance Festival in Colorado, he has made a habit of setting the bar high for himself and has since shared the stage with some of EDM's biggest names including Avicii, Wolfgang Gartner and Zedd.
2012 has so far been a break through year for the tireless producer. The self-release of his 6-song EP "In The Beginning" on Fuzion Muzik topped the Electro House, Dubstep and Progressive House charts on Beatport as well as reaching #2 on the Top 100 releases. Shortly after following up the success of his EP with a single on Bazooka Records, "Legion", which reached #15 on the Electro House charts, James was selected as a winner of Insomniac's Discovery Project which earned him a slot on the biggest electronic music festival in North America, Electric Daisy Carnival.
With his release schedule already filled up for the rest of the year and a live set that's bursting with purely original music, James Egbert is fully equipped for success and making significant strides towards the top.
As a former CU graduate & a Colorado favorite artist, LA-based Ecto Cooler returns to Boulder to share the stage with James Egbert for an epic end of the school year (and possibly end of the world) blowout show! No stranger to the Fox Theatre, Ecto has shared the stage with Skrillex, Feed Me, Datsik & Dillon Francis, to name a few. Following a huge year marked with a debut EP "All Your Bass" reaching #4 electro & #25 overall on Beatport, and 2 following remixes of "Knockin'" and "Radio Rock" that both cracked the top 100 electro charts, Ecto is now set to release his biggest single to date titled "Touch The Sky" at the end of November. Having toured the country playing shows and festivals in cities across the US, he now returns to the Fox to bring his exciting blend of electro, dubstep & progressive house along with his energetic and often hilarious on-stage antics to once again captivate the bass-loving Colorado EDM scene. If you've seen him perform at the Fox before then you've probably already bought your ticket, and if you haven't, then I'm not sure why you're even still reading this!
