John Creamer as a DJ has been playing his trade for over 6 years at the top now but it is fame as one half of the production team alongside Stephane K that has seen them propel into the higher reaches of the dance music industry. John and Stephane have produced and remixed some of the biggest tunes of the last two years. Remixes that have provoked near riots on the dancefloor inc
lude Kosheen's 'Hide U, which won them remix of the year at the 2001 Muzik Awards, their brilliantly twisted vocal remix of Satoshi Tomiie's 'Love In Traffic’, New Order’s ‘Crystal’, the irresistible ‘Waiting‘ by Nat Monday and Rapture’s classic anthem, ‘Iio’. Both “Hide U’ and “Iio’ became massive global hits, with both records entering the UK Top 10 at No.6 and No.3 respectively.
Their production work has also been equally as successful, with projects such as ‘I Love You’ and ‘Wish You Were Here’ earning them worldwide respect as producers in their own right.
John Creamer has also been impressing dance floor crowds far and wide behind the decks. Having supplied the soundtrack to last years summer season, John Creamer is bracing himself for a similar success story this summer as he spreads his dark and twisted beats even further afield. He will be the duo’s representative for their Bedrock Tour in July and August, to promote their compilation due for release in August. On his travels he will visit The Pod (Ireland), Pacha (Budapest & Buenos Aires), Renaissance (Ibiza), Istanbul and Cult (Switzerland) amongst others. He is also a main player in the massive Smirnoff event in NYC where he will be headlinin. In the last 2 years, John has already managed to conquer some of the worlds most respected clubs including Cream (UK), Renaissance (UK), Bedrock (UK), Pacha (Portugal), Soda (Athens), and Zouk (Singapore). Not forgetting his home in the US, where John is fast becoming a household name. He has played the legendary Spundae (San Fran, LA and Vegas), Axis (Boston) and numerous loft parties in New York.
Their history? There's lots of it… from Stephane's days playing bass in hardcore bands to John's trombone efforts on a ska record at age 16; from John's first ever house production (a birthday gift for a friend) to Stephane's critically acclaimed house tracks with DJ Katsu (under the name Madam; from Stephane's tracks (as Bipath) with Satoshi Tomiie to John's long years as record store kid and later, A&R man with Eightball Records and Satellite Records.
Dark, deep, weird and sexy are words that best describe the sound that's currently getting them rave reviews from DJ heavyweights such as Danny Tenaglia, Danny Howells, Pete Tong and John Digweed. In whatever the duo choose to remix, it's the vocals that tend to be the deciding factor. 'Love In Traffic' features an unsettlingly affected ('unique and... strange' according to Stephane), but complete vocal from ex-Sneaker Pimp Kelly Ali over spare percussion, a throbbing kick drum and a few head-twisting effects. "I just love the vocal stuff," John says. "Good, big-room vocal tracks are hard to come by right now, so that's kind of what we wanna gear things towards.”
There's no doubt what Stephane and John stake as their musical roots. Stephane cites DJ Pierre's classic 'Atom Bomb' as his all-time favorite record. If there's any irony at all, it's that with all of this classic house to draw upon, Stephane and John's sound clearly falls into the category of Right Now. "Everything's just kind of morphed into one these days," says John. "All the trance guys are playing the deeper tech stuff and tribal stuff, all the borders just kind of collapsed this year. It's good timing for us."
The duo’s current remix projects include Sinead O’Connor’s ‘Troy’ and the soon-to-be-huge summer smash, ‘Mooney’ by Dove. Individual projects with Prince Quick include Stephane ‘s ‘Insane Poem’ and Creamers ‘Fuck Sonnet’ – a track that despite having been only sent to 15 DJ’s and journalists is already causing a major stir. A New York dirty, deep and twisted house track that lays a truly filthy monologue over the cheeky, spiky house groove. Watch out!
