Get ready for unbelievable floor-filler sounds designed for the sneering and stylish youth culture of today, brought into being through a fusion of dance and rock by none other than Kaz James. The rare breed of DJ/producer works to experiment with genres to create uniquely fresh beats consisting of groove-infused melodies that are undeniably some of the catchiest tunes we’ve heard in a while.

The Australian DJ has proven his ability to rock dance floors at some of the biggest festivals and underground house clubs worldwide, with frequent Ibiza dates last summer in addition to slots at LA’s HARD Summer, Australia’s STERIOSONIC Festival, Belgium’s Tomorrowland, Isle of Dreams Turkey 2014, and HARD Day of the Dead. Additionally, Kaz gained the title of David Guetta’s official support DJ on his last world tour.

It doesn’t stop there: Kaz’s latest single, “Show Me All Your Love” gained rapid popularity as it topped charts as #1 on AIRA. The track’s upbeat electro vibes cause inevitable movement on the dancefloor and create the club atmosphere we’re all after!

We interviewed Kaz to gain his perspective on things – check it out below!

Your latest Track “Show Me All Your Love” was released a few weeks ago. How did this track come about? Inspiration?

I was standing on top of a mountain when a beam of light shined from behind a tree and zapped a message into my brain saying “Show me all your love”.

What does it mean to you to have you single be #1 on AIRA Charts?

It’s quite a cool thing to be honest because it’s not fans voting, it’s music industry people so it’s a great feeling when people you respect and admire are into your work enough to vote for you.

How did the collaboration for “Underground Police” with Junior Sanchez and Vick Knightly come about?

We have been friends for years and always wanted to do a track together. We were vibing on some oldskool acid house tunes and were talking about DJs that don’t really DJ and spend the whole time doing hand singles to the crowd rather than actually DJing. Thats were the Underground Police vocal idea came from. Its actually Felix Da Housecat on vocals.

This past summer you hosted “SHOW ME: Paradise Club” with names like NERVO, Steve Aoki, Sneaky Sound System and Autoerotique. How did you go about choosing whom you’d like to perform with as well as well as your venue location?

I have been playing in Mykonos for a few years now at Paradise Club and its always been one of my favorite places to play in the world. Mykonos just has a certain energy that you can’t find anywhere else.  When I was booking the line-up I just booked my friends. It was a lot of fun. I can’t wait till next year! Big plans are afoot!

You’ve just played Stereosonic. Festival in Australia. You played last year; you’re playing again this year. What does it mean to you to be part of this massive festival 2 years in a row?

Its always one of the highlights of the year for me to come back and play on the main stage across my own country and to receive such a positive reaction is awesome!

Stereosonic made a stop in your hometown of Melbourne, Australia. You played alongside such names like Alesso, Carl Cox, Dash Berlin and Skrillex, to name a few. What does it mean to you to play such a show in your home town, with these greats?

It’s really cool to have all the crew in my hometown it’s a lot of fun for me. It’s a positive to have so much talent on one stage at once. Is awesome for Melbourne and I’m blessed to be involved. It’s also nice to be able to take everyone round to my house for Tea & Cakes.

So what special surprises, if any, did the crowd hear from you at Stereosonic?

I did the whole tour and it just gets better every year. I got to play all my new tunes and especially my new hit “Show Me All Your Love” which went down great!  I had pioneer fly down from Ibiza to shoot a small doco style video on Stereosonic through my eyes which was super cool. It was basically me hanging with all my friends like Carl Cox, MK, Laidback Luke, Aoki talking about anything and everything – can’t wait to see how it turned out.

You launched your coffee business in London about 3 years ago. First store you opened was Shoreditch Grind on London’s Old Street. You now have three Grind locations with more planned. How did this all come about? What made you want to open up coffee shops, in London?

It was a great accident to be honest I needed a new place to put my studio and my friend wanted to open a coffee shop so we combined the two together. Music and coffee! Its been a massive success and we have had so many amazing artists record at Shoreditch Grind.

What is the latest update on the band Rage with Gold?

We are still finishing the album which is 95% done. Its such a great record the response so far has been awesome I really can’t wait to get it out!!

2014 is quickly coming to an end. What have been some of your favorite highlights of the year?

For me really the releases I had this year with David Guetta and Junior Sanchez. And my remix of Oliver Heldens‘ “Gecko” have been received well by people with good airplay and chart positions. The touring’s been great too, particularly the residency in Mykonos and some incredible parties in Ibiza. I love playing Ushuaia and Pacha particularly.

What can we expect from Kaz James looking into 2015 and beyond?

The world wide release of “Show Me All Your Love” on Warners and a massive array of new tunes!
