James Scott “Jimmy” Tamborello, more commonly known as Dntel (pronounced /ˈdɪntɛl/), is an electronic music artist. He is sometimes cited as James Figurine. Tamborello has indicated that the name was not intended to mean anything.
Tamborello is also part of Figurine, an electro-pop band consisting of Tamborello, now in character as James Figurine, Meredith Figurine and David Figurine. The three were high school friends and created music based mostly on the theme of long distance love, with an inventive electro-pop sound.
Tamborello also released an album under the “solo name” of James Figurine, entitled Mistake Mistake Mistake Mistake. This album is more of a downtempo electronica album which, despite the moniker, sounds more like a slightly less glitchy version of his Dntel work than his work with Figurine.
