Johnny 12 Inch, known to his mom as Kyle Karsten, began his career in the electronic music industry in early 2009 under the training of Rick Hunter at DJ Mix Club in Johannesburg.
After honing his skills as a DJ throughout 2009, he then took his love of all things elctronica to the next level by turning himself to DJ/artist through the teachings of legendary Ryan Murgatroyd (aka Crazy White Boy) and Willie Els (aka Pziezzo Electric) at the Soul Candi Institute of Music in 2010.
Currently based in Cape Town, the Johnny 12 Inch project revolves solely around the harder electro sound, with it’s roots in the disco/electro blend.
Having enjoyed a joint residency at Vegas Lounge in Edward Street as well as gigs at the Bang Bang Club, Club 91, Carnival Court, Eastwoods, Carnage and China White. Johnny was also jointly involved in a resident spot for a weekly mix on UCT radio.
Production wise, there is plenty to come from the Johnny 12 Inch project and the future should see plenty of Johnny!!
Influences include the likes of Deadmau5, Wolfgang Gartner, Feed Me, Dirty Loud, Skrillex, Zedd, Digital Freq, Hot Pink Delorean and High Rankin to mention but a few.
Remember………. Always bring YOUR Johnny with you!
