John B Podcast 163: Live @ Timeless DNB, Los Angeles 04.06.16

June 22, 2016

Just when you’ve been waiting for a new podcast for months TWO pop up in the same week! Lucky you!

In contrast to last week’s Spring Studio Mix in partnership with Serato, we now have a LIVE set for you, recorded on the last night of John B’s most recent mini-tour of the USA (he’s back out there twice again in July – check out the Live Dates listings for details!) in LA for the fabulous Timeless DNB party for a special event, their 100th party! Always a pleasure, the LA crowd never disappoints! Get ready for a fun, varied set & a bit of celebratory slightly drunky John B on the mic! There’s a few little glitches in the audio from the radio mics the MCs were using – hopefully they’re not too much of a pain – would have been a shame to not share the set just because of a few crackles 🙂

John B Podcast 162 / Seratocast 55: Spring 2016 Studio Mix

June 22, 2016

SeratoCast / Music From Our Extended Family of DJs Worldwide

For SeratoCast 55 we profile another of our favourite drum n bass artists and long time friend John B. Check it out for some new John B goodness.

“I thought it was about time I did another studio mix since I’ve been so busy working on new music lately I haven’t put a new podcast out since February! With this mix I took the opportunity to go a bit deeper than I sometimes do when playing out. This set is loosely based on how I played at Soul in Motion in London a few weeks back, opening with a new remix I just did for Dusky, including a couple of the new tracks on my recent Metalheadz EP & generally keeping the vibe darker & more underground Drum & Bass than usual – was a lot of fun! Hope you like!”

Mixmag Single of the Month & 10/10 for “Lava EP”

“LAVA EP” on Metalheadz [Official Video]

June 22, 2016

Post originally from the John B Blog:

My EP on Headz is out now – buy links are below, along with audio previews and the official Video for LAVA which I’m proud to say I edited myself! I’ve been slowly learning a few new tricks in Final Cut X – (a far cry from the random tour videos I used to just edit on iMovie back in the day) I think this came out pretty well!

Anyway – here’s the PR blurb and a couple of reviews we got, including a 10/10 in Mixmag and ‘Single Of The Month’! Not bad!

“It’s been a while since John B graced the skull with the headphones. Across his career he has released genre defining music. His tracks on Prototype are revered and we don’t even need to comment on his contributions to the Headz catalogue, but that’s all in the past- its 2016 and he has a new agenda to set. These tracks are exactly what you would want from John B on Metalheadz. One side has drama, one side has soul. It’s a welcome return for a missed team member.”

Juno review (Click here to read in full):

“It’s been years since John B last fronted a Headz release – 15 to be precise – but there is no other label these three tracks would be more at home on. Techstepping back to his earliest visions, “Lava” is a straight up spring back to 1998 in new trainers. Stark, grimy and heads-down, it pays homage to one of drum & bass’s most innovative eras. “Lie To Me” reminds us of John’s inability to sit still creatively with the jazzy, almost “Brand New Funk” style dynamics of “Lie To Me”. Finally we hit “The Colossus”. One of John’s secret weapons since Sun & Bass 2015, it’s an ugly piece of uncompromised machine funk with all the bass groans and cymbal splashing you could ever ask for. Arguably John’s best release this decade.”
