John has sold millions of albums in Japan and South East Asia, as a recording artist and DJ Producer / Remixer.


In the Philippines he was the main man at the country's first superclub , Rumors. He was also a regular on a number of TV shows and part of the "Pepsi New Generation" roster of artists.

Japan followed & John was the driving force behind the legendary Juliana's Tokyo (Japan's equivalent of studio 54) - the club spawned a multi million selling CD series (produced by John), and a TV show. The proceeds of the CD series allowed the small independant record label Avex Trax to grow into the multi million dollar empire that it is today.

Following Juliana's Tokyo, John worked with Avex to develop a brand new club concept. "Velfarre" was built from the ground up and was another huge success. In the same way that Juliana's Tokyo introduced Techno, Velfarre brought Trance to the Japanese market and another huge boom was born. John introduced the 'After Hours' concept with "Planet Love" and every weekend, A-list DJ's such as Tiesto, Armin Van Buuren and Ferry Corsten would play along side him.


Concurrent to that, John was hosting his own dance music show for MTV Japan and producing music for himself (7 solo albums) and for corporate clients such as IBM, Kenwood, Dunlop & Otsuka.
John twice performed at Tokyo Dome!


John has a diverse range of work, from remixes for artists like Kim Wilde, Julio Iglesias (used as TV them tune in Korea) and production of music for commercials, TV & movies.

John is now based once again in Manila has just completed a limited residency at

Cove Manila at Okada and has gigs lined up throughout 2020 in Japan, the Philippines and North America.
