DJ/producer/curator/promoter and festival programmer - it’s hard to pigeon-hole UAE-based James Locksmith, but we suspect that’s just the way he likes it.

Hailing from Sydney, James has been producing and programming world class, instrumental projects and events and DJing from bars to festival stages for nearly 20 years. He is recognised and respected across the globe for his well crafted in-depth DJ sets and his role in the development of independent music communities.

A certified full-time music junkie, James Locksmith has been leading the alternative music scene across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) for nearly a decade, brilliantly blurring the lines between funk, international disco, soul, house, electronic, alternative techno and world grooves, creating his own unique, genre-hopping mix that’s seen the native Australian play across the region including Beirut, Bahrain, Kuwait, Egypt, Greece, Morocco and Australia. With music in his veins, he’s become the go-to man for cult brands like Red Bull Music and their world-famous Music Academy.
