JohnB · John B – Electrostep (15th Anniversary Edition) [Remastered]

ORIGINAL PRESS RELEASE FROM 2006:

Electrostep, is varied, accessible, interesting, exciting & genre-bustingly electro-Robo-Tastic. John B’s 7th album is more than just a collection of disposable, short-lived dumb dancefloor D&B tracks. Lots of clever, funny lyrics, robot vocals, wide-ranging musical styles, pioneering approaches to production, mainstream appeal but its still underground, raw & refreshing. The influence of modern Electro, indie/rock & 80s synthpop is noticeable throughout, but is interpreted in a way that moulds perfectly with the power and energy of Drum & Bass to define a revolutionary new direction: soon to be widely known as ‘ElectroStep’!

Collaborators include: 80’s superstar Howard Jones on ‘For You See Me’ – a powerful blend of electropunk & DnB with a gorgeous vocal & breakdown/buildup. John Bs Porn star friend Marcy Meow provides vocals on the 80s covers ‘Tainted love’ and ‘Metro’. “We met in San Francisco – she’s done around 25 movies to date including Barely Legal and Bang Bros.” Marcy has her own band Suicide Tuesday and is currently working in Vegas. John performed with her this year at the WMC in miami at the soho lounge. Other collaborators include Floridian Bands Fashionista & Iowatest, Soma-signed My Robot Friend, new UK act One Life Left and LA Electro-TrannySex-Masters Dirty Sanchez.

PRESS:

KNOWLEDGE MAGAZINE: Electrostep is quite simply the most breathtakingly personal album by a drum & bass artist since New Forms. John B has single-handedly created a new genre in Electrostep, and it would be criminal if he didnt go on to achieve a similar level of acclaim as Roni Size did at the 1997 Mercury Music Awards.

IDJ MAGAZINE – ALBUM OF THE MONTH: If you think drum & bass has steered itself into an artistic cul-de-sac then you definitely need to hear this album, for it is unlike any other thrown up from this scene. For the past few years, with singles such as American Girls and Electrofreeek plus Marilyn Manson remixes, John B has almost single-handedly developed a drum & bass style soaked in eighties electro, rock, grunge and trance influences and doused in tongue-in-cheek humour; and it has garnered him a fan-base few of his contemporaries could test. Alongside original compositions such as Russian Bride and Stalking You On My Space, both demonstrating his acute take on life online, the album includes covers of 80s classics such as Tainted Love and Hey Mickey, remixes of Howard Jones and Dirty Sanchez, all presented in a dynamic dance floor mix. If you buy one drum & bass album this year, make it this, as youll be playing it in years to come 5/5

DJ MAGAZINE: John B is drum and basss eccentric anomaly! Not afraid to uniquely express himself… open minds should investigate!

D&B has never been particularly noted for either a sense of humour or being too off the wall, so thank fuck for John Bs Electrostep. Both tongue in cheek and irreverently innovative, Electrostep might sound like another newly imagined genre from the music journalist conveyer belt but its actually one of the most refreshing, entertaining and exciting LPs garnered by the d&b scene all year. Expanding the visions he first flowered with 04 LP In:Transit, the make-up loving eccentric covers semi-satirical electro d&b wig-outs, glistening trance nbass, body-popping robo-funkers and the bubble-gum grunge of recent single Stalking You On Myspace. And a jump-up d&b overhaul of Hey Mickey. If only all d&b albums were like this 4.5/5

TOUCH MAGAZINE: John B looks like an 80s pop star. All pho-hekan and eyeliner, hes used this synthesized decade as his muse for Electrostep. On it hes let a drum n bass robot and a disco robot do the bare backed beast together and now were invited to hear the Yamaha sparks fly. The 80s pop star Howard Jones collaborates on For You See Me (ah, now we know where blonde John got his image from) and porn star Marcy Meow adds to a cover of Tainted Love. And lest we forget the huge lead single Stalking You On MySpace, dedicated to the cool kids hobby de jour. But wheres his rendition of Dont You Want Me Baby huh? 4/5

John B Podcast 184: TIMELINES SPECIAL – April 2006 Redux XM Show from Miami Beach

March 17, 2020


Hi everyone! Another TIMELINES SPECIAL podcast for you here.

Big thanks to one of our long time listeners Nikita for letting me know that this episode has been missing from the archives & sending over his recording it of, so I thought it was a good one to re-upload as part of the retro theme currently. Hopefully it’s not one of the older ones that soundcloud flags and takes down…

This is a recording from one of the monthly guest slots I did back around 2004-2006-ish for DJ Simon’s Redux show on XM radio, where I was one of the guest DJs on rotation there alongside I think Tommy Sunshine and Larry Tee etc (good company right!?). A fun time, peak electroclash, and I was mixing up 4/4 stuff with my 80/electro influenced stuff for those radio shows – though my live sets around then were still all pretty much dnb speed stuff apart from dropping in a couple of 4/4 tracks mid-set so I could come back with some heavy Dnb after!

The photo is from WODNB in Miami in 2006 I think too! Same time this was recorded.

Seems a bit strange to be suddenly all in action with more podcasts and promotional stuff, which was meant to help generate some much-needed gigs in the diary – which is obviously out of the question now!!

I’m currently having a think about how I can move forward and try to survive though this extended period without being able to earn a living from performing live – but in the meantime will try to keep spirits up & get more podcasts out and hopefully make some more music if I can get into the right frame of mind!

If you like this free content & want to support a little bit, the best way I can think of right now is to buy a few mp3s on my bandcamp here: john-b.bandcamp.com or on my webstore here: www.beta-store.com – but obviously there’s more important things to worry about. Hope these podcasts & whatever else I end up putting out here helps keep spirits up a bit! Big up. JBParagraph

[Oh and of course you can listen to this podcast on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Mixcloud etc – just search for it and we should pop up!]

John B “American Girls” (2002) Directed by: Aaron Fairooz

March 13, 2020

Director Aaron Fairooz has been a fan of John B for over a decade. He decided to take his skills and resources and combine them with the groovy sounds of John B’s song “American Girls” (originally released in 2002) to create this 80’s inspired music/fashion video.

The video celebrates the carefree nature of an attractive young American girl while also exaggerating sexuality, excess and entertainment.

John B Podcast 183: TIMELINES SPECIAL – Live at DataBass LA 2001

March 13, 2020

The first of a special series of TIMELINES Podcasts featuring older previously unheard DJ sets of mine from the vaults.

This one is a rip of the audio from a full video set I found on my hard drive a long time ago and saved for this project. I was originally sent it by someone from the Databass team who organised the party and actually live-streamed it way back in 2001. Talk about being ahead of the curve technologically there! Amazing.

The video is up on my YouTube, IGTV & Facebook – which is definitely worth a watch just to see the vibe inside an amazing DNB night in LA back in 2001 – but I thought you guys would appreciate being able to listen to the set on the podcast too so here it is…

A lot more of these coming in the next couple of weeks so keep an eye out!!
