Michael James @ Axis/Radius

Since fist-pumping his way from his hometown of Miami to making Scottsdale his new scene of choice, Michael James has certainly been a busy dude. He regularly spreads his time between hitting the clubs in Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and right here in the Valley, moving between Old Town's Axis/Radius and his residency at Cream Stereo Lounge. All the traveling hasn't sucked his energy, though. His brand of high-energy electro house just doesn't die down. James has played alongside Kaskade, Robbie Rivera, Eddie Halliwell, Nick Terranova, Cedric Gervais, and Sander Klienenber, but his scheduled appearance on Saturday, August 20, at Axis/Radius, 7340 East Indian Plaza in Scottsdale, it's all about James. The records start spinning at 10 p.m.
