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…

‘Album Of The Week’ (Mixmag), ‘Album Of The Week’ (The Independent), “The ‘Drive’ soundtrack with a rocket up its arse.” (DJ Mag); just three of the reactions to John B’s latest ‘Light Speed’ album from earlier in the year, a neon-soaked journey into one of the most epic drum & bass LP’s of recent times.

Now the title track is about to be unleashed with a package of remixes that go beyond the norm, ready to hit all corners very hard indeed. For John’s most ambitious single release yet, some of the most exciting young producers from around the world have been drawn in to offer their take on the uplifting stadium anthem ‘Light Speed’ featuring the vocal talents of NSG.

From the totally re-worked club house mix through to hyper-boiled drum & bass smashers and electroid dubstep, no holds have been barred and if hi-rolling drumstep is what you’re after, John’s even got that too. A massive dynamite release from one of electronic music’s most flamboyant figureheads.

Nicki Minaj Samples John B’s ‘Red Sky’

July 31, 2012

Nicki Minaj’s #1 Platinum album ‘Pink Friday’

In appreciation of John B’s unique drum and bass style, Cash Money Records’ very own world-wide superstar, Nicki Minaj, has chosen to heavily sample John B’s drum and bass hit, ‘Red Sky’ on her debut album ‘Pink Friday’ on her track “Here I am”.

Minaj is best known for her own unique blend of hip hop and R&B, which saw her peak to #1 in the US charts for ‘Pink Friday’. The Album also reached Platinum status (industry recognition for selling 1m albums, plus). Beta Recordings’ very own John B is proud to have been a part of it!

Known for its famous heavy motorbike synth and trance piano, ‘Red Sky’ fits in perfectly as the backing track to Minaj’s vocals in her personal song, ‘Here I Am’. Listen below to hear both tracks and follow the links to buy ‘Red Sky’ and more tracks on John B’s latest album ‘Light Speed’.

John B “Light Speed” The Album, Out Now!

John B – ‘Light Speed’ OUT NOW!

CLICK HERE To check out the microsite for the whole album, with audio clips and what the press said.

“John B personifies the more leftfield, zany side of d&b. Sporting crazy hairdos and ‘80s electronica-inspired eye-makeup (water/sweatproof we hope!), his gigs have become a favourite on the trans-European and worldwide DJing circuit, not least this year, where his bookings list has skyrocketed as a result of wildfire word-of-mouth recommendations on the hedonistic circuit, as well as straight d&b nights.” – DJ MAG

“Light Speed is overblown and almost operatic(…)a reminder of grime’s rave roots” – THE INDEPENDENT

John played a special ‘influences’ set right by the beach at the Sun & Bass Festival in Sardinia back in September, and we got the recording! The Pinot Grigio was flowing, the sun shining, and bikinis glistening in the ocean – the mixing wasn’t particularly tight, but the tunes were super-robo-electro. Pcchhheeeooowwww!
