James Pants is a legendary DJ from the grand state of Washington. I find his music great for gettin silly, or just loungin around...
He is currently on Stones Throw Records which seems to be a label that I really like these days. They pump out really good music. Dam Funk and Mayer Hawthorne are also some artists worth checking out.
I would have to say James Pants would be someone I would want to play music with. He doesn’t really stick to any particular genre, which makes for endless creativity. And on top of that I bet he owns a bunch of rad instruments we could mess around with. It’s always good to have a jam partner with lots of instruments. He just seems to make music that feels right at the time. You can hear some soul, some electronic, some funk, a little hip hop in there…all the good stuff.
His music videos are particularly humorous. It’s probably just the style in which they are shot. There is a scene in one of his videos where he throws a candy bar at a car that is trying to run him over. I love that scene. That’s exactly what I would do if a crash test dummy was trying to kill me.
