James Kumo - Kumomusic Vol 1 - Ann Aimee
January will see the release of James' (Victoria or Posh Spice as I like to call him) debut EP on Ann Aimee, which is the sister label to The Netherlands' almighty Delsin Records imprint. They're busy promo'ing it at the moment and as you can tell from the reactions it's going to do well by the looks of things. DJ Rolando of UR fame has even stuck one of the tracks into his most recent chart. As you can probably guess we're massively proud of James here at Kumo HQ.
Release date: January 2008
"Beautiful, as always full radio support " - Laurent Garnier (F-Com)
"Fluid chugs along nicely, this one should definitely get things going in a set...45 days days is the pick of the EP for me...taking things up a notch from Fluid, will be able to find lots of ways to work this in..Koma is really nice, no way to play it except for a non dance situation but still great to listen to and play whenever possible.. very creative and original EP!" - Dan Curtin (Metamorphic)
"45 days!!!!! i played this 45 times in one gig!!!!!" - Vince Watson (Bio Music / Delsin)
"Raw and basic. Will try out the 45 days, as I can imagine this doing the best in the clubs." - Josh Wink (Ovum)

"Fluid and 45 Days will work perfectly in my sets. Koma is good for the radio. Full support !" - Tomaz (Switch - Studio Brussel)
"Fluid's got a deep,bumping and dark vibe that works well but 45 Days is the one for me with it's BIG peaktime full on sound. Can see that really going off in the clubs Very nice." - Colin Lindo (Nubian Mindz)
"Yo Delsin - Consider "Fluid" as the opener to dj any set. The ladies will freak to hypno vibe. 45 - Gets mad support from my side as well, A dark track but Im really digging it! Roberto Q. Ingram Black Nation, Exun, Disko Massaka" - Roberto Q. Ingram (Inspiration Network)
"'fluid' is the one for me here. like the sounds and the metalicy congas" - Dave Mothersole
