Manila adds another DC10 DJ to its long list of acts in underground house and techno scene, as Footprints a local music collective bring Robert James, founder of Body Mvmt in London, UK and signed to Araï Agency, to Manilas most happening rooftop venues, Topic.
It’s been 10 years since Robert James first decided to drop everything and head to the mystical island of Ibiza for what was to be a life-changing season. Over the past decade he has gained the respect of his peers, idols and fans alike, combining a deep-seated love for house and techno with a natural flair and the kind of experience one can only achieve through a constant flow of gigs. Renowned as an adept producer too, Rob has travelled the world, spinning records at a long list of highly respected, influential clubs with residencies at El Row and Paradise (DC10) plus a slew of international gigs.
Rob places great importance on the art of DJing, crafting intricate, groovy sets, rather than relying on high-impact effects to entertain the crowd. Just as comfortable warming up the terrace at DC10 as he is playing the sunset at a summertime festival or peak time at Warehouse Project, Rob is inspired by master selectors like Craig Richards and Andrew Weatherall, and his penchant for playing vinyl and smooth transitions places him in a class of his own.
