    ALBUM INFO

    Artist : John B
    Title : in:transit (CD)
    Release Date : 7 June 2004

    Format : single CD /// Cat. No. : BETA CD 05 /// Barcode : 666017 085722

    Press Release:

    in:transit is John B’s first artist album in 3 years, and by far his best yet. Designed for die-hard D&B fans and newcomers alike, tracks span from heavy Metalheadz-style techstep smashers (Vampire Eyes/Amnesia), to beautiful Epic Trance-inspired full vocal tracks (Mercury Skies/Midnight Air/Broken Language), crazy porno Electro-step (American Girls 2004/Take Me home), and hi-energy hyperdisco/liquid funk D&B (Faith In Me/Romantic).

    The album is varied, accessible, interesting, exciting & genre-busting. It’s still Drum & Bass, & works in clubs, but is far more than just a collection of disposable, short-lived dub dancefloor tracks. Lots of vocals, wide-ranging styles, pioneering approaches to production, mainstream appeal, but still underground, raw & refreshing. The influence of modern Electro, commercial Dance & Trance is noticeable throughout, but is interpreted in a way that moulds perfectly with the power and energy of Drum & Bass to define revolutionary new directions. The title & visual concept of “in:transit” reflect John B’s DJ touring lifestyle of the last few years, the music is its soundtrack. Tracks have been selected and refined based on feedback from the clubs all over the world and are John B’s most impressive works to date.

    JOHN B - BIOGRAPHY
    If you haven’t come across John B in one of his many musical guises over the past decade, where have you been? Classically trained at a young age, this British superproducer has gone on to become one of the most eclectic and unique individuals working within electronic music today. Consistently escaping categorization, John’s genre-defying catalogue spans the worlds of Electro, Trance and Drum & Bass, and a few other spaces across the bpm spectrum.

    John’s career began in illustrious style as the one and only Goldie picked up on this mild-mannered, blonde-locked science graduate and his distinctive drum and bass beat constructions, and he was signed to the legendary Metalheadz label. Tracks such as the euphoric “Up All Night” have become instant classics in the canon of drum and bass, and repeatedly smashed dancefloors worldwide. John B quickly became a headlining name on flyers across the globe, and his touring schedule has been non-stop ever since. Establishing his own stable of labels (Beta Recordings, Tangent, Chihuahua and Nu_Electro) to reflect his diverse tastes from liquid funk to Latin, provided the perfect platform for John’s groundbreaking sonic experimentation to develop.

    From his studio and label HQ in Maidenhead, UK, John has since made major waves within the wider world of dance music. Having picked up on John’s early forays into trance production, Perfecto label boss and DJ superstar Paul Oakenfold commissioned tracks which ended up alongside the likes of Madonna and Justin Timberlake on the epic “Great Wall” compilation. John has also long worn his love of 80s electronica on his sleeve, way before the fashionistas jumped on the bandwagon, and he has been busy signing hot new electro-influenced tracks for his most recent label venture, Nu Electro. There is also rumoured to be a John B reworking of Toni Basil’s classic “Hey Mickey” in the pipeline.

    Still just the tender age of 26, is there is much more to come from Mr B. Next up, godfather of soul James Brown’s new tracks are due for the John B remix treatment, a real surprise for even this musical chameleon. He’s also been busy Remixing Howard Jones, Heaven 17, and S’Express. True to form, it doesn’t seem as if things will be becoming predictable any time soon…

    Very good album indeed
    not really liking the guitar riffs on Mercury Skies though, I loved the simpler version rotating on dub
    anyway the whole thing is quality
