Biography

John Roman is a 24-year-old producer/DJ from Toronto, Canada. His distinctive blend of a cutting-edge techno and tribal rhythms has earned him huge crossover support from underground legends like Tiga, Martyn and Untold to mainstream stars like Tiesto, A Trak, Carl Cox and Mark Knight.

His breakout 2011 single “Sala” was a cross-genre anthem, sounding equally at home in Laidback Lukes BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix or in a Roska Rinse FM show. In 2012, his debut on Turbo Recordings, “Petrified”, turned into one of the most sought-after club tracks of the year. Appearing in Brodinski’s Fabriclive60 CD, it’s been described as a “footwork siren” by Pitchfork.com, “an absolute techno monster” by Sinden, and “the biggest bomb of all my recent sets” by Tiga.

Also a prolific remixer, Roman’s sound has been enlisted by the likes of Deadmau5 & Imogen Heap [Ultra], Tiga & Jori Hulkkonen [Turbo], Proxy [Turbo], Nouveau Yorican [Defected], Crookers [Mad Decent], Harvard Bass [Teenage Riot] and many more.
