Versatile......Intensely creative in his style and with a vibrant personality which he projects into his sets, the strive to impress and connect with the crowd in every performance has established John as one of the most respected and renown Headlining DJ's for Hed Kandi over the last 10 years.
He also is the founder of Yoversion Records. The code and ideology of the label is simple; to be a channel for artists to project their version of dance music, encompassing the entire spectrum of house, bringing pleasure and feeling to your audible senses.
He has developed a career and unique style that has seen him embark on a hectic schedule touring on a weekly basis world-wide to cities such as New York, Miami, Sao Paolo, Tokyo, Mumbai, Poznan, Sydney, San Francisco, Paris, Bogotá, Moscow, Ibiza (10 years consistently), Majorca, Barcelona and pretty much everywhere in-between, with the stand out gigs having to be Head-lining the Terrazza at Space – Ibiza, Rocking David Morales "Club Stereo" in Montreal and playing New Years Day @ GatecrasherOne with Erick Morillo, aswell as headlining for the official F1 Grand Prix After Parties in Monaco & Bahrain.

His style, heavily influenced by the likes of MAW, MK, David Morales, Tenaglia, Cajmere, Carl Craig, Roger Sanchez, Mood II Swing and X-Press II, John openly admits that his objective is to give people up-front in your face quality house music, whether it be a deep underground set in East London, through to an uplifting Main-Room House vibe at Creamfields Festival. Its nice to be able to go to a gig and deliver a twist on what people are going to want. Its great to have that free range, to be able to break the mold and take your crowd with you, which is a product of 15 years DJ’ing experience
