"There's a certain kind of thrill that you get from the Horror genre, that you don't get from every film... I guess I'm always looking for that film... that scares me, which is kind of a strange passion."
James Chapman a.k.a. Maps is a recording artist and producer signed to Mute Records.
His unique brand of multi-layered electronica emerged from years locked away in his bedroom.
He then moved on to build a whole studio in his home in Northamptonshire, affectionately referred to as Maps HQ. His self-taught and exploratory approach to music and composition has been key in creating his own sound.
He is also a keen remixer, and has produced official remixes for such artists as M83, The Killers, Depeche Mode, Moby, Bombay Bicycle Club and Susanne Sundfor.
James has released four studio albums, the most recent being “Colours. Reflect. Time. Loss”.
2020 saw the release of a series of remix EPs. The project, titled ‘Colours. Remixed. Time. Loss.’ unfolded throughout the summer of that year. Each track from the album ‘Colours. Reflect. Time. Loss’ was remixed, and the collection was eventually released as a cassette album on Mute.
