Also, if you can find it, there’s a John B Producer Masterclass in issue 161 of Computer Music, with a DVD on the front with full video of John in the studio…

And here’s a picture of John in OK! Magazine. Just because.

John B in OK! Magazine!

John B #1 D&B DJ in the DJ Mag Top 100 Poll 2009!!

November 4, 2009

We’re delighted to announce that John B was voted #1 DnB DJ at this year’s DJ Mag Top 100 Poll, coming in at #92 overall!

John was presented with his award on Wednesday night at the Ministry of Sound nightclub in London, by Peter Hook (of Joy Division & New Order). More than 300,000 votes were cast this year, from 263 different countries.

We’d like to thank everyone who voted for John for the support & for taking the time to vote for him. John said in his blog: “I’m absolutely over the moon with the result, it’s an amazing achievement to finally break into the DJ Mag Top 100, and an honour to be the highest Drum & Bass DJ! Thank you SO MUCH everyone that supported me in the poll – I promise I’ll keep the podcasts coming, and keep giving it 200% on tour! Thanks!!!”

Armin Van Buuren was number 1 for the 3rd year running, (and told John he was secretly a fan of Drum & Bass!), and there were some great DJ sets on the night from Mr Buuren, Gareth Emery, Above & Beyond & lots of other guys, but we’d had too much champers by then to remember!

You can see the full Top 100 list in this month’s edition of DJ Mag, or on the DJ Mag website if you click here.

John was interviewed by skrufff.com about the award last week – you can read the article here.

Here’s the John B entry in the Magazine:

John B feature in Schwäbische Zeitung Ravensburg

January 19, 2009

The promoters from the John B gig at Douala in Ravensburg on Saturday night kindly gave us this clipping from the Schwäbische Zeitung, the main newspaper for the region.

If our German skills are correct it looks like they called John a ‘Bird of Paradise’ hahahah! The mention of Nine Inch Nails lured in a few mega-NIN fans too, along with all the usual electroDnB misfits! Excellent to see such a broad range of fans out at the weekend going mental in such a small town!

You can see John B’s iphone photoblog pictures if you click here, and we’ll shortly be posting photos from the pro-photographers on the night too.

The first John B gig on 2009, if the rest are anywhere near as good it’s going to be a killer year!

John B Feature in Freiburg Subculture Mag

January 15, 2009

If you can read German here’s a cool mini interview John did for a magazine in Freiburg before his gig over there in November 2008.

The Making of… Starburst

January 8, 2009

Full page feature from Knowledge Magazine in 2008. John talks about how he produced one of his first breakthrough electro/trance Drum & Bass track ‘Starburst’ back in 1997.

Interestingly enough, John plans to remix starburst in 2009 as part of the Greatest Hits & Remasters project for later in the year…. You heard it here first!

“When the Time Comes” review in DJ Mag. November 2008

Taken from DJ Mag, November 2008 edition.

“When the Time Comes/Dancing in the Dark”

The electro don returns. John its us with retro-style echoe arpeggios darting and twisting over a super cool crash and crumble robo-beat.
