John Johnson has been working in the music business for nearly 2 decades and achieved great success with his production and remix work in the international dance music scene. He amassed over 300 productions and remixes over the span of nearly 20 years. His remixes have graced official releases from the likes of U2, Jennifer Lopez, Lenny Kravitz, Kylie Minogue, John Digweed to Underworld.

In the early beginnings in 1996 he started producing and remixing under his guise Power Dove. His best known track as Power Dove was his remix of Dovebeat’s – LaPaloma on Sounds Good Records which became an instant classic. Having remixed the likes of John Digweed’s Bedrock project and Underworld, as well as other well known EDM artist’s, there was a fight to sign John for his solo projects. IDJ (a sub-company of Ministry of Sound, London) won that bid and signed John in May 1999. Johns first single, “Impact”, was released in June 2000 to critical acclaim from the likes of Sasha, Armin van Burren, Carl Cox and Radio 1 master, Pete Tong.

It can certainly be said that John managed to put his name on the map in no time. He released the monster “City E.P.” in 2001 which was another great success. The title track “London” was featured as opener of Jimmy Van M’s Bedrock compilation. John’s DJ career also took off big time. In the UK you could see him regularly at Cream, Gatecrasher, Gallery, Inside Out, Type and in various locations all over the world form Buenos Aires, Tokyo, Helsinki, Ibiza, New York, Paris, Sydney, Berlin and many more.

These days he runs a bi-monthly radio show called New York Stories and a digital label called Media-Blackout with his best friends, to give back to the community that has given him so much during his long lasting career. John Johnson 050 – Anniversary Edition will be released September 30th 2014 to showcase that he really is back to his old self! Welcome back JJ, we missed you.
