John B Ft Code 64
The Journey
Beta Recordings
Worldwide release 25 March 2013

Following the rich vein of melodic, star-gazing sonic form set by his previous single – the blistering n’ beautiful ‘Love Again’ – ‘The Journey’ is yet another highlight from his Mixmag acclaimed album highlight ‘Light Speed’. Opening with the trembling, angels-from-heaven style intro, it’s an instant flashback to the heady days of Sasha & Digweed at their prime; delicate, enrapturing, dreamy, euphoric. A perfect set opener, a perfect set finale, a perfect moment for deep, shivering reflection mid-set… It’s an instant ear-catcher, whenever you drop it.

As the intro develops, we’re snapped away from our progressive reverie and slammed into the future with John’s robust beats, trademark crisp electro bassline and floating synth work. By the time Swedish artist Code 64’s perfect vocal delivery enters the mix all watches in a five mile radius are automatically set to ‘rush o’ clock’. Executing an impeccable balance between dancefloor power and genuine song-writing, it’s yet another reason why John B is respected as such a unique artist. Not just in drum & bass, but the wider world of electronic music.

Remix-wise you’re in for a treat as Beta have invited the unstoppable Metrik to the fold for a very special remix! A firm fave at the Hospital camp, Metrik is unavoidable right now. Leading the charge of D&B’s next generation with an ability to fuse raw production power with the subtleties of melody and vocal dynamics, he’s the perfect remix candidate for ‘The Journey’. Paying respect to John’s original, Metrik’s given the bass a major beef boost, tweaked the arrangement with his own space-bound arpeggios and bolstered the beats. Where John’s original was a moment of dancefloor reflection, Metrik’s version is a moment of dancefloor detonation.

Complete with an acoustic version and all manner of instrumentals and radio edits, there’s an ideal solution for every platform, every club, every time of the night.

John B ft. Jillian Ann “Love Again”

May 2, 2013

Coming soon to www.beta-store.com

Bringing 2012 to a fitting finale, John B’s dancefloor dominance continues unabated with the emotion-drenched piece de resistance from his critically acclaimed album ‘Light Speed’.

Sparkling with his trademark pristine production and melodic mindset, this perky-but-poignant roller alone explains his LP scored Album of the Month and Album of the Week from Mixmag and The Independent respectively. A producer who’s never cared for fickle flavours, John’s baked his own slice of electronic music pie and you can taste the confidence and creativity in everything he does. This includes the A&R on his own label, Beta… As proved by the remixes he’s commissioned for this blistering release.

But first, the original… A filmic fusion of sonic sentiments; ‘Love Again’ boasts the ideal balance of elements. The delicate pianos counter softly with John’s cannon-like arrangement of Jillian’s alluring vocals as the powerful drum & bass engine revs and purrs underneath. It’s a picture perfect piece that appeals to the mind, body and dancefloor, and it comes in both original and edited forms.

Remix-wise John’s secured three refreshing takes, each of which drive the melodic masterpiece into a whole new playing field. Man of the moment Enei adds the raw, mechanical oomph he’s renowned, tipping a respectful nod to John’s formative repertoire with growling bass and spliced, chop-tickling drumwork. Meanwhile Swedish D&B powerhouse Seba applies his own technique and textures to create a spacious, spell-binding reversion that whooshes and whirrs with late night grace and floating bass.

And for those who enjoy a more pensive, dramatic approach, Tempa terror LX One adds a whole new halfstep stance. Dark, deep and deadly, it’s a slow and steady headnod to the FWD flavour of dubstep; subdued but solid, it’s a refreshing reminder of the subtle textures dubstep can carry when in the right hands.

Finally John completes the set with his own Till Sunrise remix. Keeping the pianos and vocals firmly in check, he adds a steppier rhythm and an immersive bassline that oozes an infectious, progressive electro charm. If anything’s going to keep you dancing till sun-up, it’s this.

From albums to accolades via action-packed singles, it’s been an incredible year for John B. ‘Love Again’ summarises his successes perfectly.

Having secured Album of the Month from Mixmag and Album of the Week from The Independent for his recent long player ‘Light Speed’ John B’s musical prowess continues to grow far beyond his drum & bass roots. With an outlook that’s embracing of fresh influences while always bearing the hallmarks of a very unique sound, John B is still one of the most exciting artists to arise from the D&B revolution of the ‘90s and continues to push the boundaries with every release.

On this, his latest single, John B delivers a stunning take on the ‘Trance & Bass’ sound that he made so popular. Teaming up with Kirsty Hawkshaw who lends her bright and breezy vocals to John’s sublime backing track, this is simply great electronic music that fans of great melodies and beautiful songs will love. Clocking in at 174bpm, most D&B is beyond the comprehension of many listeners, but ‘Connected’ stands up as both a driving piece of fast breakbeat trance music and a warming reminder that musical genres are for trainspotters, not for music fans.

Next up McMash Clan take a break from releasing on Flux Pavilion & Doctor P’s Circus Records to rework ‘Connected’ with some all-important dance floor filth. If you’re someone who prefers their bass music served with a wall of sub-bass weight and some face-pounding, unrelenting beats then this whacking great chunk of drumstep-to-D&B will surely satiate your every desire. Matching the beauty of John B’s original with the beast of McMash Clan’s sonic assaults, this is the perfect way to assure shear dance floor devastation whenever you drop it.

With this release John B once again shows us exactly why he’s regarded as a legend in the dance music world. His glittering career filled with triumphs and overflowing with fresh ideas just got even more impressive.
