Karsten John`s passion for music started in his early childhood, learning his first instrument by the age of 6. He later studied Jazz guitar at the Institute of the Arts in Arnhem before coincidently becoming a DJ in the mid 90s. His highly sucessful first residency got him infected with club culture and night life and after moving to Cologne he founded the now legendary Vinyl Vibes club night in 1998. The party quickly became internationally known for being a hot spot for old and new Jazz infected grooves. Soon Karsten started touring worldwide bringing his Vinyl Vibes to clubs in Europe, Canada, USA, South America and Australia. Due to collecting lots of unreleased music on his DJ tours he was taking the next step in 2004 by founding Vinyl Vibes Records to release some of his favourite gems.
Being the musical face of Vinyl Vibes Records, Karsten transported the freestyle idea behind the label in his DJ sets. Rare and undiscovered 60s and 70s Sounds mixed with any kind of modern club beats be it Deep House, Drum`n`Bass, Down Tempo, Broken & Afro Beats, for a unique dancefloor experience.
In 2012 Karsten John decided to focus on his love for Deep House and Electronic Music by founding a new club night called Love.Beats. It is taking place once a month in Cologne and apart from his Resident Nights it's also featuring guests like Trickski, Mister Saturday Night or Peter Kruder.
Of course you can still find Karsten playing his music for selected dance floors around the world.
