James Galloway aka Nothing To Lose began his music career at 15 when he bought his first pair of direct drive turntables. Playing at house parties, he honed his skills until he reached 17 and won his first (of many) DJ competition at The Old Fat Cat in Southampton.
At 18, he moved to Guildford and achieved a distinction in his Higher National Diploma in DJ Skills and Music Production at the Academy of Contemporary Music. It was here he learned the to record vocalists and remix tunes professionally, as well as the business side of things like running a night or label.
After moving to Manchester at the age of 19, James quickly found himself playing regularly on radio shows and at the popular local nights, Hit & Run and Metropolis and started the University of Manchester Drum n Bass Society (UMDNB). When he left university, it was the 3rd largest society in the university (with over 900 members) after the Islamic and Christian Societies.
