Having showed promise from a young age playing a number of musical instruments including the drums, steel drums, guitar and the piano, Johnny was easily distracted, more interested in playing with his Spectrum ZX and Atari ST. He dropped all the instruments and failed to realise the important role they could of played in his later life as a producer.
Fast forward to 1997, the instruments were a redundant memory but music wasn’t. Embedded in his heart over the years was a passion for electronic music. Wanting to explore this passion further the computers were pushed to the side to make room for turntables and a bedroom filled wall to wall with vinyl. House & Garage kick started his career however as he matured as a DJ he didn’t want to follow the trend of being genre specific. He decided to completely disregard sub genres, allowing him to knock down any boundaries and create unpredictable DJ sets, fusing a spectrum of genres that naturally shouldn’t fit. Johnny pulled this off with musical ease.
He became a regular fixture on the London party scene on both sides of the decks after his return from university in 2003. In 2007 he flirted with music production and his second release consecutively made the BBC Radio 1 weekend dance music playlist for 3 weeks, featuring alongside some of his hero’s at the time including Spektrum, Tiga, Pryda and Oxia. After the 2007 releases he disappeared into production wilderness and concentrated on being a DJ.
2010 was the year that inspired Johnny to venture back into production after taking on a basement flat in Hackney, London with two friends that gained the name Wolf Creek. It became notorious as an after hours venue where friends and friends of friends would party throughout the whole weekend. Fun being the only music policy, allowed DJ’s playing to be as creative and off the wall as possible. The vibe, the friends along with the cross pollination of Disco, House, Garage, all things 70s, 80s and 90s massively inspired Johnny with ideas for new music.
