James Holden

was one of the most respected electronic musicians worldwide already at the age of 19. With «Horizons» he scored a genre defining hit for techno in 1999. The remix inquiries came flooding in: From Madonna, trough Depeche Mode to New Order – everybody wanted the magic touch by the former student of mathematics. In the meantime Holden started his own label, Border Community.
