Interview with Jordan James - Reverly Agency | Fashion Weekly

Written by

He sat down with Fashion Weekly to talk about his music journey, influences and world domination predictions.

In a nutshell, how did your journey in music begin?

I'd say my journey began when I was fourteen years old. My sister's partner saw my passion for music and pushed me to save enough money to buy some DJ equipment.

Who were your early passions and influencers?

When I started making music a lot of my influences came from Australian artists but my main influence would have to be Flume.

What feelings or emotions are you trying to evoke with your music?

I really just want everyone to have fun. To me that's what it's all about.

What are you listening to at the moment?

I've had Odesza's album 'In Return' on repeat since it was released. Flume's debut album is never far from reach either.

What has been a highlight in your career so far?

I'd say my highlight would be coming Number #8 in the world for the 'Odesza' remix competition. I had so much support on my remix witch still blows my mind.

What is one thing you would change about the current local music scene?

I'd like to see more locals supporting each other. At the end of the day we are all in this for one reason, being we all love music.

What are your music predictions?

There's a lot of Aussies today absolutely killing it on an international scale. I'm predicting an Australian domination!

What is one thing the music industry has taught you?

To be patient.

What advice do you have for people wanting to break into the industry?

My best advice would be patience. I believe if you truly want something you'll get it. Work hard and it will pay off also always listen to any feedback you get given, whether it's good or bad and to never take anything personal.

Describe your music in three words.

Bass. Tropical. Fun.

If you weren't involved in the music scene, what would you be doing?

Well I'm currently a 3rd year apprentice witch takes up a lot of my time during the week. I'd say that's what I'd be doing.

What's next for you?

I've got a heap of music on the way. Ill be releasing an EP sometime next year and I've been working on some really cool collaborations which are not far from being finished. I'm really excited to share it all very soon.
