Chris James blasts onto our radar with his recent hit, “Make the Move”. It effortlessly builds upon the begging question that could have various interpretations for listeners which is always great for helping to create a connection. I know I surely start to ponder whether to move forward with potential moves I’m stuck in limbo on when listening.
At first we didn’t even realize it was the same Chris James from the classic Deadmau5 track, “The Veldt” until further digging which is always great realizing you’re already a fan of an artist without having much of a deeper impression of their sound. Chris James noted that he has pulled tons of inspirations from bands such as U2, Radiohead, My Bloody Valentine, The Smashing Pumpkins, and Massive Attack making it an interesting development of his sound as certain styles certainly bleed through more than others.
All in all, this is a track we will definitely have in our playlists on repeat and it does feel like one we can happily come back to way later on. Chris James has increasingly become an artist on our watch list and we are excited for what’s to come.
