Stalvart John found his home in electronic music about a decade back when he discovered artists like Fatboy Slim, Prodigy, and Robert Miles. It did not take long for him to realize that the music he loved was well appreciated by others. He noticed this space and took the jump from being just another EDM enthusiast to an EDM curator. In 2011 he started a Trance podcast named Trancemitor. The show was well accepted and soon his sets made its way through scores of people. That was about when new avenues started opening up. He started playing for pirate radio stations based in the UK. He represented India on various top EDM radio stations across the world. In the mean while Stalvart became the resident DJ of Club 1100, Ramada Resorts.
His opening sets for guest DJs became a rage. People began to love his deep sounds and the dance floor began filling up with the groove. He played in all leading clubs in Kerala including Ava Lounge Dream Hotel Cochin, Lagoon Le Meridien Kochi, V Bar Hilton Garden Inn Trivandrum. He also played in Pebble - The Jungle Lounge Bangalore.
Stalvart is now working on a new podcast named "In a Mind Place". In a mind place is not bound by the restrictions of genres. Stalvart's idea is to carry his listeners and take them on an hour long journey of sounds.
