James Blonde the person behind Sweat Lodge is not only a person with a sense of music but has been a musician himself for quite some time. He started making music in the 80's with wave bands in Tel Aviv and moved to Los Angeles as lead singer and guitar player for Grunge bands. In the end of the glam days of LA he played notorious clubs such as `Whisky A Go Go` and `Roxy` on the sunset Strip. After a visit to Tel Aviv for the millennium party and seeing what the great club scene Tel Aviv had to offer those days, he turned onto electronic music and started to manage Tel Aviv´s ´Vox´ club.
After seven years as a promoter and dj in Tel Aviv, James moved to Berlin to establish Sweat Lodge Agency, and later Sweat Lodge Radio, as well as devloping a dj/producer career, with releases on MBF and Falkplatz.
Recent dates include Berlin venues like Watergate, Tresor or Suicide Circus, as well as trips to Koln, Hamburg, Paris, Moscow, or Poznan to name a few.
While working behind the scene for Sweat Lodge and SLIM, James Blonde pops up for occasional gigs.
