jOHNNYDANGEROUs, FOREMOST POETS, Wayne Lyons, Slick Dada, Mikee Disko
FOREMOST POETS aka "jOHNNYDANGEROUs" has been reshaping Dance, Funk and Hip-Hop for 20 YEARS. In 1990, he invented The Deep House Sound through his own blend of future funk & spoken word releasing his first underground hit single "Reasons To Be Dismal?" on Nu Groove/SBK Records. A few years later, Johnny dropped "Problem #13 (I Beat That Bitch With A Bat)" in 1993 and orbited into the Dance Music Hall of Fame. Since then, the name carries great respect in the underground throughout the entire world.
When Johnny's striking voice appeared on his release "Moonraker", he set a new standard for DJs around the world. His legendary accapellas, production, singing styles & remixes are the rave, sending crowds into a hypnotic frenzy as soon as the needle dropped onto the late 90s with poems like "Do Not Try To Bend the Spoon", “We Have Your Planet Surrounded” & "Its About That Thym (BAR A THYM by KERRI CHANDLER)" all of which has earned him notoriety in Club circles around the world. Johnny has gone on to display his eclectic production skills in the R&B, and Hip-Hop arenas.
Raised in New Jersey, born in Philadelphia, USA, in 2007 he relocated back to Philadelphia, to assist in a community project called The Arts Garage, which is well known for it's community events, plays, shows & activism. Since then, in 2008 & 09, Johnny joined the team with the Maestro & Grammy winner "LOUIE VEGA" of Vega Records with their Collaborated songs entitled "NEW YORK CITY" & "LONDON ROOTS" keeping the Dance world on edge for what's next to come. Although the journey has been long, the foundation is deeply rooted.
Today, the "FUNKMASTER" continues to innovate while currently dropping some of the wickedest white Label Remixes of Rick James, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, Enya, Dr. Buzzard, The Peech Boys, San Ilya, Outkast, Jazmina & others yet to match. He currently has singing collaborations with multiple producers & artist for 2010 & beyond. His most recent collaboration is The HOUSAHOLIX COMPILATION Project featuring Darryl D'bonneau, Stephanie Cooke, Duce Martinez, Lil Dave, Charvoni, Rainy Payne, Sonyae Elise, Susu Bobien, Macjam's (Charles Mcdougald) & others. NO LONGER QUIET ABOUT IT... jOHNNYDANGEROUs, poet, producer, writer, singer, DJ, engineer & now film director is no longer a master in the making; Foremost Poets is shaped, formed in passion & always been the fashion.
"There may be many Johnny Dangerous', but there's only one Foremost Poets".
