JAMES Hype is living up to his name with his track ‘More Than Friends’ featuring Kelli-Leigh sitting pretty in the UK Singles Top 10 for the last three weeks.

The young producer spent his early career cutting his teeth DJing on the club circuit in the North of England before getting noticed, not just because of his wizardry behind the decks but also due to his floor filling bootlegs which got the attention of major players in the music industry. This and huge support on BBC Radio 1 led to numerous remixes on major labels so it’s no surprise his debut single ‘More Than Friends’ featuring the vocal talents of Kelli-Leigh and an electronic re-imagining of En Vogue’s 90s hit Don’t Let Go has stormed the charts.

We caught up with James Hype for a chat this week to find out more in his very first interview which you can watch here.
