In 1994 James produced and pressed up 300 copies of a bootleg track he made that he called “Blurred”, on account of it containing a sample of Damon Albarn from the indie group Blur, by this time using the name Pianoman. The track “Blurred” was an overnight success and sold the first 300 units in less than twenty minutes after it was played on Kiss FM by Graham Gold and BBC 1 by John Peel and Pete Tong. Two years later the track was released on 3 Beat records via London/FFRR and went straight into the UK chart top ten at number 6, staying in the chart for a full four weeks. Appearances on Top Of The Pops and MTV followed, as well as featuring on the Radio One roadshow and the Smash Hits roadshow tour. In all Blurred sold 480,000 copies in the UK alone. Recently, with the revival of the 90’s sound the track has seen new life and appealed to the next generation by appearing on compilation albums by Ministry Of Sound, EMI Music, AATW Records and Sony Europe.
Other Legendary Pianoman anthems include Cast A Spell, Whitney Tune, Rock And Move, Revelation and So In Love.
