DJ James Tobin | Sydney

Arguably at the peak of a decade-long career, James currently performs weekly at the iconic LGBT nightclub, ARQ Sydney (2008 – current) and is a regular performer at Stonewall Hotel (2010 – current), venues that make part of James' club-residency list including The Shift Club (2008 – 2011 | 2015 - 2017), The Oxford Hotel (2007 – 2010), Colombian Hotel (2010 – 2017), e11even, The Burdekin, The Gaff and The Imperial Hotel. He has appeared as a guest DJ at iconic clubs like HOME Nightclub, Trademark, Goldfish, Tunnel, SlyFox and more, shared stages with names like Freemasons, Bimbo Jones, Ultra Nate, Offer Nissim, Katherine Ellis, Peyton, Luciana, Oxford Hustlers to name a few. James' music and sets have also been broadcast on radio through South-East Asia & Europe, while locally he was a regular guest on Sydney radio station, OX Live.

James' debut single in 2013 "Keep It Coming", written and released with power-house vocalist Carlotta Chadwick  (distributed through Stereo Missile Recordings), peaked at #17 on Triple J's "UNEARTHED" Electronic Chart, and allowed James the opportunity to flex his production muscles a little harder. Attracting remix privileges for the debut single from Australia’s Got Talent runner-up Greg Gould in 2016, he then went on to produce two official remixes for the singer in 2017 - “Euphoria” and “Don’t Let Go”, the latter debuting at #5 on the iTunes Dance Charts. Later in 2017, James teamed up with DJ + Producer from New Zealand Mark Loasby to form the production duo Bassment Boys, a music brand that will surely deliver some impressive house music come 2018...

James also carries a portfolio of graphic design work, event production and campaign management, a lot of which is still prominent throughout Sydney nightclubs today. In 2015 James announced his appointment to the role of Marketing, Events & PR Manager of Sydney’s iconic LGBTQI venue ARQ Sydney and in 2016, James began a focus on producing unique events across a variety of venues.

DJ, Producer, Songwriter, PR Manager, Marketing Guru, Event Producer & Graphic Designer – James’ influence on Sydney’s nightclub scene has been across it all, and looks no sign of slowing down any time soon.
