FURNEY is James Fearnside, based in Aylesbury but born in Bradford, UK and really is a DJ/Producer that needs no introduction!!
He first got into dance music by listening to mixtapes from the early acid and hardcore DJs kindly supplied by his older sister & as these DJs moved into Drum+Bass, James followed them and his sister has clearly been a big influence.
James’ early releases came out on labels like BIG BUD’s SoundTrax and Super8sound imprints as well as Advanced Recordings and Deep Kut run by TOTAL SCIENCE, going on to have a number of seminal releases on Good Looking Records run by LTJ Bukem.
FURNEY’s debut release for a revitalized GOOD LOOKING was ‘DRUM TOOLS.’ A collaboration with MC CONRAD, the track appeared on the flipside of LTJ BUKEM’s first & last track for many many years, ‘SWITCH’. Next up was ‘PIPEZ,’ coupled with ‘LEAP OF FAITH’ by UTAH JAZZ.
“‘PIPEZ’ is a re-rub of an old Jack Smooth track from 1994. I loved the elements so much I decided to re-work them to today’s tempo for a bit of fun & with the backing from Jack had a full release on GLR.
Then followed ‘DISTANCE’, coupled with SOULMATIC’s ‘SELF BELIEF’. With its crisp production and driving bassline, ‘DISTANCE’ is a perfect example of why FURNEY’s productions have become such a big hit on the dancefloor over the years!
Late 2014, Furney graced LDMusic with two tracks for our debut vinyl release that has been receiving worldwide support from a number of DJ’s & moving into 2015, Furney continues to gain support from the likes of; DJ Marky, Utah Jazz, Fabio, LTJ Bukem, & High Contrast to name but a few…

Those tracks as mentioned in the interview are ‘Spaghetti Western’ & ‘You’ : now available worldwide on 12″ vinyl & digital.
On top of that piece of history for the label we are excited to have secured a number of tracks from him & are proud to announce that Furneys début album will be released with us later this year.
