I first saw James Zabiela in the grounds of Lord Lichfield's Shugborough Hall at a Renaissance party back in 2004. It was just when he was hitting the scene being championed by Sasha as the next big thing. You could feel his unique talent standing in a 5000 person tent watching him scratch trance tracks on CDJs into his progressive house and breaks set. The soundsystem wasn't great as well or at least had had its volume cut because of licensing and sound complaints from the villages surrounding, but still you could hear that this was something different and special.

I found this old live set on my computer. Its well worth listening to. A true master of Pioneer CD decks and FXs.
