JOHN B – BRAINSTORM (18th Anniversary Edition)


Originally a USA-only Mix CD in peak-Electroclash-era 2001, John B has remastered Brainstorm (in his newly built studio), and added 4 previously unreleased tracks from that time including the rare “Synthpop Electro Mix” of ‘Up All Night’ to the package. Previously unavailable anywhere digitally, and now with the individual DJ-Friendly tracks alongside the mixed versions, this is a great album for D&B collectors and fans of John’s early explorations into what would become his ‘Electrostep’ Sound.

Original Press Release from 2001:

A ground-breaking 70 minute John B DJ mix of Futuristic Electro & Trance-Influenced Drum & Bass Killers, Drawing on influences from 1980s Electro & Synthpop, Progressive Trance, Breakbeat and Drum & Bass John B has identified a completely new direction for Drum & Bass. Robotic New Wave Synthesizer Action with destructive D&B Basslines. Vocoded Retro Lyrics, infectious Drum Machine techno-funk and beautiful euphoric vocals lead D&B through a new phase of Evolution in a seamless mix that sounds just as good at home as on the dancefloor.

John B – “Electricity” Video & FREE DOWNLOAD

May 2, 2015

Available now as a free download from John B’s soundcloud page we present his new track “Electricity”. A powerful, politically-charged comment on society, status, government, big business, police, corruption. And electro.

Featuring comments from Russell Brand during his appearance on BBC Question time last year & a hard-hitting video with archive footage of the protests in London & America, big business, media-propoganda, wealth & poverty.

This is not easy-listening, meaningless, throw-away Drum & Bass. This is a reaction against Bottle Service firework EDM excess & brainwashed hashtag self-obsession, inequality & opression. Serious music, serious issues & serious Bass.

Video edited by John B using archived news footage & shots from ‘Hands up Don’t Shoot’ by Eric Rodriguez..
