Need a gift for a gifted musician?
John started Djing back in 1998 after hearing influencial house Djs such as Derrick Carter, Ralph Lawson, Todd Terry, and DJ Sneak. Became a fierce bedroom jock for many years and dedicated a huge amount of his time perfecting skills and building a heavy-weight vinyl collection. Looking back he admits that it almost bankrupt him and put a swift end to other interests in his life. But what does that matter when you've found a credible passion and a real appreciation of music.
His first residency and taste of promoting was at Po Na Na in Harrogate, where he launched the first underground house night to a somewhat sleepy town. However it soon gained reputation in the area and it gave him the opportunity to play along side international Djs such as Marshall Jefferson (NYC), Justin Long (Chicago), Brett Johnson (Dallas), Bear Who (Chicago), Yousef, and Paul Woolford (UK). On the back of this residency he was able to branch out and spin at other club nights in and around the North of England during the mid naughties.
Since then Johns Dj career became a little more varied as he found a love outside of House music with a real appreciation of Funk, Soul and Disco, which led to him taking on a number of residencies in Harrogate and Leeds. However his roots are firmly in the underground dance music scene and he'll continue to push the sound until he hangs up the headphones.
