Original member of multi-platinum selling group Rogue Traders, James Ash’s musical journey comes full circle with the release of “Right In The Night”. With his return to Vicious, James takes his formidable studio skills and wraps them around the classic “Right In The Night”, originally made famous by Jam and Spoon. Slinky four-to-the-floor beats, subtle melodies and a moody, female vocal, reinvent this for today’s ears, again showing off James’ production finesse. James explains what drew him to remaking the classic track: “When I began DJing, “Right In The Night” was the biggest tune in the world. Over the years, I’ve always wanted to return to it, and honour the original with my own take on it.

You could say this record is 27 years in the making. But it also has a clear eye to the future, and I hope to bring this song to a whole new generation of fans.” Vicious released the Rogue Traders’ debut album and top 10 single “One Of My Kind” back in 2003 when they were a DJ-based, production duo. Rogue Traders then evolved into a massive crossover pop success with the addition of lead singer Natalie Bassingthwaighte. The rest, as they say, is history and what a history it is! Over 1 million records sold, 6 x ARIA platinum records, 5 x ARIA gold records, 6 x top ten singles in Australia, plus a UK #3 single with “Voodoo Child”.
