Born under a bad sign between a rock and a hard place, Jimmy soon hit the skids and took to loitering outside the local chip shop in his cape, playing his demo on an old ghetto blaster whilst scrabbling around for tit-bits and narrowly avoiding kebab meat thrown at him for trying to drink peoples beer. Darkhorse AKA Graham Shrimpton of Three Sixty Records heard the tape, found him covered in chips in a nearby dumpster, dusted him down, and discovered the kid actually had some talent. Taking him on and producing his debut album for release on Three Sixty Records. Graham co-produced the Grammy winning album Global Drum Project.

In his youth Jimmy busted out toons under the monikers Superdense Child and Zooface, and as a DJ has rubbed shoulders with the likes of Afrika Bambaata, Radio One’s Breezeblock show, Rahzel, Krafty Kuts, The Herbaliser, Fatboy Slim, Bonobo, and many more. He played keys in bands with Quantic, TM Juke, and Alice Russell from blossoming Brighton label Tru Thoughts. Then he found out he could sing, so he struck out on his own. Nowadays he works live with Kaoss Pads, synths and a cape.
