John openly admits that his objective is to give people up-front in your face quality house music, whether it be a deep underground set in East London, through to an uplifting House vibe at Creamfields Festival. Its nice to be able to go to a gig and deliver a twist on what people are going to want. Its great to have that free range, to be able to break the mold and take your crowd with you, which is a product of 20 years DJ’ing experience
