James Ellaway a.k.a Lung is a 24 year old DJ and producer from Cardiff. A friend and collaborator of High Contrast’s, Lung signed exclusively to Med School in 2011 and has not looked back since. Crafting beats at a variety of tempos on the electronic spectrum, his debut release “Afterlife” and subsequent remix by Kryptic Minds arrived on Kokeshi and captured the imagination of the dubstep fraternity. His Med School debut “Relapse” landed on the labels “New Blood 011″ compilation and in the same year he delivered a stunning remix of “Yikes!” by London Elektricity.

Several releases followed in 2012 including “Rollerball” and “Accidentally On Purpose” on Hospital Records’ “Sick Music 3″ and“Sub 150″ compilations respectively and collaborative efforts “Red Rhythm” (featuring Joe Syntax and Eleven8) on Med School’s “Blood Pressure” compilation and “Not Waving, But Drowning” (with Jessy Allen) on High Contrast’s 4th studio album “The Agony & The Ecstasy”. 2012 also saw the release of Lung’s first solo EP on Med School, the sublime “Why Does Anyone Ever Do Anything?” featuring Rachel K Collier.

2013 saw the release of Lung’s debut album, “Wait Less Suspense”, which featured the likes of Rachel K Collier, Sunchase, Paper Aeroplanes, Tiiu and Phaeleh, showcased Lung’s versatility as an artist; at home within the realms of dubstep, drum & bass and the many sub-genres in between. Like his production, Lung’s DJ sets offer heaps of variety and energy, and following stand out performances during the last 12 months in places such as London, Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff and Belgium, Lung has established himself as one of Med School’s most consummate performers.
