Latest release

Collisions, a new 4-track self-released ep is now available, currently only on this website (other platforms to follow)! Head on over to the vcam store and be among the first to get it!




vcam is the electronic music project of James Long. Now based in Snoqualmie, WA (the setting for the old TV series Twin Peaks) and surrounded by the Cascade mountains and an endless sea of evergreen trees, I create electronic listening music. Inspired by artists like Autechre, Aphex Twin, Lexaunculpt, Funckarma, early Funkstorung, Richard Devine, Arovane, Andre Esterman, Boards of Canada, Squarepusher, Plaid, The Black Dog, Novel 23, Bola, and so many others, I create electronica that is at times abstract and experimental, with evolving rhythms, textures, and melodies.

Lots of new vcam tracks are coming soon! I've been hard at work during the pandemic, creating tons of new material that I plan to release later this summer. In the meantime, the long out-of-print Shaelslip EP will be available on iTunes very soon, along with a bunch of unreleased tracks on a 2-volume compilation.
