About

Listen to anything by Disgraceland and any number of thoughts and emotions run through your head. The foundations of the burgeoning moombahton production style ensure that a thread of forward-thinking, instant exuberance runs throughout - but this new global bass style is smartly offset by a depth and resonance that can only come from someone who is steeped in the history of UK dance music.

Leicester-based producer John Stanhope - aka Disgraceland -has long excelled at blending a curious mind and suave approach to production. With a history of gigs that includes playing alongside names like Goldie, Randall, Andy C, Kevin Griffiths, Harry'Choo Choo' Romero, Clive Henry, Grooverider and Fabio. His pedigree speaks for itself.

Successfully traversing house, techno, trance and drum & bass, it is moombahton – the US invented, mid-tempo, heavy and bass-driven global sound – that has his attention now. With tracks like All of My Zeroes Are Greater Than Your One gaining the favour of genre inventor Dave Nada, the future looks extremely promising for the man widely considered to be at the top of the table for UK, and now international Moombahton.

After taking some time away from his career to become a parent and concentrate on his family, Disgraceland came across moombahton through Israeli producer SaBBo’s Soundcloud in 2010. Since then he has been refining his own angle and has adeveloped a significant online following. Of his Oliver$ ‘Gypsy Carnival’ edit Mixmag’s Neil Queen-Jones said: “John Stanhope has done plenty to marshal the UK scene, and his laid back, slick take on the 108 has earned him a place here. The big party fiesta vibes of this one are also totally on point. A winner.”

The producer’s success lead him to team up with Heisenberg’s Don ‘Kreecha’ Heersema and Rob Morris to form Scold Recordings in 2011, a growing label with a number of soon-to-be-announced signings and musical releases. Furthermore, he’s also setting up a monthly night in his home town of Leicester and pumping out quality, original, UK moombahton tunes.
