Born and bred in Brooklyn, New York, this former Graffiti Artist turned DJ has been an influential part of the underground music scene since 1994. John is considered one of Brooklyn's originators for the harder styles of dance for several reasons. On top of DJing and producing, Bas is also the founder of Electronic-Chaos. Throwing countless underground hard dance events in the mid to late 90's, John helped create the foundation for the scene we know and love today. After cementing his name in history with Electronic-Chaos as one of Brooklyn's best rave promoters, and an honorable mention by HUGE magazine in 1998, John turned his attention to, and concentrated on, spinning.
Beginning his career as a Hardcore DJ, he has rocked the decks and shared the stage alongside such east coast legends as Lenny Dee, Delirium, and Rob Gee. However, after a trip to Holland nine years ago, John discovered a new sound of music, that would later be named Hardstyle, and immediately fell in love. John knew instantly that he wanted to deliver this new sound to the masses here in America, and while he is extremely humble, John is considered by many to be one of the best, and one of the first, DJs to play Hardstyle here in the United States.
A veteran of 15 years, known for rocking dance floors as if it is going out of style, John has proven himself repeatedly over the years. Holding residencies at some of New York City's top nightclubs back in the day, like Avalon, Limelight and Tunnel, there is no question that John Bas is one of New York City's premier underground DJs! John is also one of the first Hardstyle artists on Beatport to release his tracks for download. Tracks like "Feel It", "Take Me To The Top", "Locked Inside Your Mind", and "Kick In The Bass". With production hits like that to his credit and his superb track selection, it's no wonder why Bas is one of Brooklyn's favorites.
For those of you who cannot wait for John to hit the stage, I have a bit of good news for you. John is back yet again with a new mixed CD release entitled "Hardstyle Is My Style". Even better, you can download it free at www.johnbas.com. In addition, Bas promises to bring it hard, fast, and on point, when he steps to the decks. So get ready to tear the walls down and dance your ass off to the Hardstyle beats of John Bas!!!
