Apologies for the sound quality in parts – the audio is taken from the live radio broadcast, and then sections where other DJs were being interviewed over the set (you may remember from the St. Petersburg Podcast too) audio from the live internet feed was used to keep it uninterrupted! (Big thanks to Evil Concussion, and Mikhail O on VK for their help with sorting out & editing the audio!). We hope you will agree its better to be able to enjoy the music than not at all!

John B Podcast 164: Live @ Let It Roll Open Air 2016 Main Stage

September 28, 2016

Back with another Epic set from John B – this time he had the honour of playing the final set on the final night of Let It Roll, on the Main Stage as the sun came up – a truly special moment at the biggest Drum & Bass festival in the world, held in the heart of the Czech Republic.

The audio comes from the livestream broadcast so is lower resolution than normal, and mono, so apologies for that, but we thought it would be nice to share the set so you can share the moment!

John B – Evolve (Official Video)

July 22, 2016

Download here:

Beta Recordings store: http://jhnb.me/EVLV01
Apple Music: http://www.smarturl.it/BETA050
Spotify: http://jhnb.me/EVLV1Sptfy
Beatport: http://jhnb.me/EVLVv1bt

Beta Recordings’ 50th release and the beginning of a new chapter for Label owner John B.

Evolve is an exciting new project, musically & conceptually, from John B. A consistent series of new releases, reliably out every month, a new musical direction, the rebranding of the John B Podcast to ‘Evolve Radio’, and a futuristic touring concept & a compilation mix series to come.

Moving away from the traditional cycle of artist albums – long periods of quiet, then sudden push to promote one album, followed by silence again, this will mean a faster cycle from track completion to release, and steadier stream of adventurous, new music, continuously and regularly released – the vibe, awareness & promotion will develop organically as the project progresses.

Fusing the influence of mature, uplifting, progressive electronic music with the power, energy & surgical production values of Neurofunk & big-room Epic Drum & Bass, but still looking back and referencing his roots, John B’s sound is Evolving once more. Think Pryda vs Noisia, Jean Michelle Jarre vs DLR, Vangelis vs Hybris. Huge evolving arpeggios & uplifting yet restrained soundscapes contrasting with the tight drums & unstoppable force of modern electronic Drum & Bass. This is the mission statement.

The first track in this continuing series itself is entitled ‘Evolve’ and features speech & vocals contributed by fans from all over the world. A long, unfolding epic, morphing intro slowly builds into a tight, simple drop cutting straight through to the dancefloor, twists & develops further into a second drop where mangled reece basslines emerge from the depths and take things to the next level. A perfect release to set the bar high & begin an exciting new journey…

John B Podcast 157: Spring 2015 Studio Mix

May 2, 2015

Back with an exciting return after an extended break from the podcast (during which John got married, went on Honeymoon, did Miami WMC, US Tourdates AND rebuilt his studio & started work on a new album!!!!).

Over the course of almost 2 1/2 hours and 44 tracks, John B takes you on a complex & carefully thought-out journey from the soulful, liquid side of things, technical, neurofunk breaks to high energy dancefloor D&B beasts! Deeper, darker headz vibes follow and then build up to a hands-in-the-air peak crescendo – proving why John B continues to be a crucial ambassador for Drum & Bass and important DJ on the worldwide touring scene.

It’s an amazing time for Drum & Bass right now, with so much wonderful music about from all subgenres and this is a mix to celebrate them all!

This summer the world is dancing to a rampant red blooded rhythm… From Rio to Rome, our soundtrack is fuelled by hip-snaking sambas, the rump-shaking rhumbas and body-blasting bossas. Rhythms that instantly grab you and hurl you into a carnivalian frenzy, there’s no better celebration of this sound than Beta Recordings’ ‘Carnival Drum & Bass’.

Latin music and bright, sprightly drum & bass fit each other like two partners in a steamy salsa dance. Just as it has in football, Brazil has become one of the D&B game’s largest creative exporters outside of the UK. Like all fiery relationships, this hot Latin influence has gone both ways with some of the genre’s leading UK exponents exploring the Latin quarters’ roots with the same mi gusta gusto.

Senor Juan B is one of the first pioneering UK exponents to nail these explorations. The playful patrão at Chihuahua Recordings, Juan is the alter-ago of Beta bossman John B. A chance for the agenda-setting artist don his Copacabana budgie smugglers and flex his funkiest of muscles, Juan has been dealing strictly in carnal carnival sonics for over 15 years…

Shimmering guitars, punctuated pianos, dramatic horns, enormous rhythms that capture you physically and mentally, his mischievous remit of red hot emotion and sun-kissed soul has now been fully remastered and updated, featuring cuts from fellow artists Grag Packer, Blu Mar Ten and Nu:Tone PLUS two brand new tracks exclusive to this album.

‘Take Me To La Cinta’ was written by John during a darker period in his usually colourful life. Recovering from an operation, he missed his annual pilgrimage to his spiritual home, Sardinia’s legendary Sun & Bass festival. Flipping the negative for something truly positive, his convalescing session has led to a timeless roller that slaps with double-bass badness and shakes with piano-primed sentiment.

The other brand new track, ‘A Man Is Just A Man’, sees John teaming up with one of dance music’s most distinctive vocalists… Darrison. His golden harmonies coating the lolloping piano samba like a snug bikini, what begins as a touching, soulful serenade quickly switches to a classic D&B jam with one of the cheekiest basslines you’ll find all year. A reminder of the genre’s original melting-pot mentality; you will not find a better example of how solid, trusting and ultimately complementary Latin music and drum & bass are.

Where the slinkiest of writhes and the most infectious of percussive dynamics meet with true fire, each of these 22 sizzling swing-joints is capable of raising a sultry smile and razing a hot dancefloor at 20 sultry paces. 2014’s world-unifying Carnival has only just begun… And this is your soundtrack!

FULL ALBUM TRACKLIST:

1. Take Me To La Cinta – John B
2. A Man is Just a Man – John B ft. Darrison
3. The Chihuahua Theme – John B ft. Miss Lopez
