Manchester's own James Allman, known melodically as Killhurtz, began his expedition into electronic music with more organic pastures, playing the drums since the early age of 11. Progressing into his teens, Allman grasped a taste for Dubstep whilst studying music production at the local city college, encouraging him to further augment his live set in and around the eminent Manchester club scene. Now in full swing as a producer, the Killahurtz sound has graduated towards a genre-transcending, modern take on beat assembly, maintaining Dubstep baseline elements into classic House drum patterns to provide a meaty principle from which to apply big sound electro synths more than capable of enticing festival stages and club venues alike.
Bounding into the mainstream with a solid remix of Beyonce's 'End of Time' and releases on PlayMe2, Innariddim, Foul Play, Imperative and Eight:FX, the back catalog for James is already filling out, prompting collaborations with vocalists Katie Jane and Kirsty Ford and fellow Mancunians Virus Syndicate. Now with a number of hot remixes on the cards, plus upcoming collaborations with "I am Harlequinn" and various major songwriters, Killahurtz is well positioned to be a forward thinking, crossover talent for a new generation of bass and electronic music fans.
