James Tobin


Beginning in 2007, James’ career in the club scene has spanned nearly a decade, mastering just about every aspect of the industry you could think of along the way. He gained a popular following throughout Sydney almost instantly following his first ever set in late 2007, and by 2008 James was resident DJ at two of the most prominent nightlife destinations in the cities hub, The Midnight Shift & Stonewall Hotel. With a steady list of residencies joining shortly after, plus a motivation to remain musically unpredictable and free of genre labelling, he’s now firmly established himself as one of the most versatile and adaptable live DJ's you'll hear.

He's shared the stage with some of the biggest names in electronic music - Freemasons, Ultra Nate, Yinon Yahel, Mark Doyle, Tracy Young, Deborah Cox, Paul Goodyear, Katherine Ellis, Offer Nissim, Jodie Harsh, Mark Picchioti, Wayne G, K-Klass, Eric Kupper, Peyton, Luciana, The Oxford Hustlers, Bimbo Jones and more. From day one of his career, he has held several club residencies locally, and still performs weekly at venues like ARQ Sydney (2008 – current), The Beresford Hotel (2009 – current) and The Colombian Hotel (2010 – current), each part of a long list of venues James calls home which also includes The Midnight Shift, The Oxford Hotel, Stonewall Hotel, e11even, The Burdekin, The Gaff and The Imperial Hotel, just to name a few. He has appeared as a guest at iconic clubs like HOME Nightclub, Trademark, Goldfish, Tunnel, GH Hotel (Melbourne), Karma Kandara (Bali) and more, has been broadcast on radio through Thailand, France and UK, plus he appears regularly as a guest on Sydney radio station, OX Live.

With classically trained ears, a vinyl "upbringing" and an obsession for constantly breaking new ground as a musician, James has earned a reputation for effortlessly mixing any genre from Tropical House to Big Room, RnB to EDM, Disco, NuFunk or Trance...just not all at once.

His debut single with Carlotta Chadwick, “Keep It Coming”, was released through Stereo Missile Recordings in July 2013, and peaked at #17 on Triple J's "UNEARTHED" Electronic Chart dedicated to independent releases in Australia.

James also carries a portfolio of graphic design work, event production and campaign management, a lot of which is still used by various nightclubs. In 2015 James announced his appointment to the role of Marketing, Events & PR Manager of Sydney’s iconic LGBTQI nightclub, ARQ Sydney.

A respected Musician, Performer, Producer, Promoter, Manager and Creator, James refuses to sit still for too long and as a result, has secured his place in Sydney's club scene for years ahead.
