John Fernie

Glasgow, United Kingdom

Techno, Trance


John first started djing at the beginning of 2000 and has achieved a number of goals since then. The first major one being the winning of a mix competition on Scotland’ biggest radio Station ‘Beat106’. This allowed John to showcase his music live on the radio and he completed a successful live 30minute mix.

Following this he became resident of a local night namely ‘Substorm’ where he played from January 2003 until July 2003. His biggest break then followed when he was invited to Norway to DJ at Trance Department in Oslo he also completed a set for Radio Oslo as well at this time.

After this success he and some others formed their own night which runs every month at the Big Joint in Glasgow to much accolade. Having a regular place in which to perform has allowed John the chance to get his music heard by a much wider audience which resulted in him getting a slot at Refresh in central Glasgow, which is one of the biggest upcoming club nights in Scotland.

Also entering the production field as well he completed a much sought after remix of Adagio for Strings which was played to over 1000 at the Arches in Glasgow. Following this a number of other productions have been completed and as a result John has now signed to Glasgow based 23rd Precinct Recordings with Codex being the first release featured there.
