“Hello again, it’s good to see you…”

Beta Recordings Space-Captain, Retro-Synth-80s connoisseur and flagrant rule shredder John B touches down in his drop-ship from a stacked touring schedule with a genuinely singular piece of work: ‘Approaching Zero’.

Over a year in the making, conducting and fusing the creative compositional skills of Russian multi-instrumentalist (& professional drone cameraman) Tairum and longstanding vocal cohort Xenturion Prime (FKA Code64), ‘Approaching Zero’ is the culmination of all John’s signature muses: Stark futurism, 23rd century romanticism, time travel paradoxes, lavish 80s aesthetics and dancefloor theatrics, all wrapped up tightly in a neon glowing contemporary D&B production pressure cooker.

It’s a quintessential example of the Synthwave/Epic-Retro-80s influenced Drum & Bass John has been honing and pioneering for over the last 15 years.

Galvanised by Bjorn from Xenturion Prime’s vocals alluding to meeting your past self in the future, approaching end of life (and mildly chiding the loudness war stormtroopers with its 0RMS double entendre) ‘Approaching Zero’ shines an entirely different light on typical songwrit- ing trends in Drum & Bass and expresses John’s love for all things 80s to the very detail.

From his own VHS-era 80s Sci-Fi cyber art video to the unique unplugged version that strips the song back to its chords and acoustic guitar, this is the future ‘synthwave’ inspired D&B sound of John B that the past John B has been focused on since he championed his own distinctive ‘Trance and Bass’ direction with his infamous (now highly collectable) ‘Trance & Bass’ Mixmag cover CD many moons ago.

Will this be his legacy? See you at the edge of the universe….

Destination future: John B ignites another big year with ‘Omega Racer’. A surging return to his epic synthwave/D&B Hybrid sound with pure positivity and energy, whether you’re looking to uplift your dancefloor or hunting replicants, this is the perfect soundtrack.

The latest in an exciting new line of talent to feature on Beta this year including Hectix, Specialist Sound and Melotronics, ‘Omega Racer’ is the result of a rough demo sent to Beta HQ by young Austrian artist Wreckage Machine. Instantly hearing promise in the demo, John jumped on board and navigated the track towards the most euphoric pastures possible with a knowing sense of futuristic timelessness: A crystalline blast of pure synthesis powered with precision levels of barbed elation, this builds on the trance and bass sound John’s been sculpting for most of his career.

The sound of an open road into an unknown future – landing amid b2b US tours, forthcoming collaborations with Digital and Code 64, an appearance on Hospital’s ‘Sick Music’ album and an in-demand festival season on the horizon – ‘Omega Racer’ marks the start of another busy year for the long-standing innovator and his imprint. Buckle up.

“Always the highlight of the DJing year for me, playing the closing party on the final night of Sun & Bass.

I always put a lot of thought and preparation into my sets at Sun & Bass, as it’s so important to give the absolute best as such an important event, that means so much to so many people – and this year it was as good as ever! Hope you enjoy the music & thanks to everyone that was there to share the occasion!”.
