In a short period of time this talented young dj and producer has become one of Spain’s most prolific and promising artists. His passion for music started at the age of 15 as he accompanied a friend to a record store who was going just to buy some music. It was at this moment when John decided that the electronic music scene would be his future love and profession, and before long his music would be heard by thousands of people within Spain and all over the world.
The dj image and what it represents is what inspires John, he quickly became familiar with the technical side of a profession and obtained certain tricks of the trade and soon acquired the necessary skills to demonstrate at a high level at all nightclub’s and festivals. After 3 years as the resident dj at some of the most prestigious clubs in Madrid, such as Space of Sound, Cool, Macumba and People he combined these residencies with events in Barcelona, Miami and Ibiza and obtained also a new roll as a promising producer.
Not satisfied with just playing at nightclubs he started to compose and produce his own music, it was the next big step for him and an opportunity to transmit what was really going on in his mind and to fullfill his goals within the current music scene. Even though he has been influenced by all types of music and artists such as Erick Morillo, Daft Punk, and the likes of Danny Tenaglia or Laurent Garnier, his Spanish roots reflect the warm hispanic sound of all of his productions.
His past work, ‘Temptation’, ‘Just Like You Said’ and ‘Petit Comite’ none of which can be identified in any particular music style where its obvious to see the time and effort that John has dedicated to experimenting with new sounds and rythms, developing and improving his skills as a producer where he has worked with the likes of Dave Spoon, (mas artistas)
After having recorded over the past years with some of the most recognised labels such as Spinnin, Pink Star… John is currently recording with the Dutch label “Armada”, owned and run by Armin Van Buuren. He has also been responsible for launching the first recording of the British based Botaira Records, one of the world’s most infamous electronic music labels.
He is currently working with the classic and renowned house music label Nervous records, where he has received great support from the likes of Roger Sanchez, Paul Oakenfold, Axwell, Sasha, Sander Kleinnenberg, Satoshi Tomie, Hernan Cattaneo, Steve Angello, Laidback Luke, Nick Warren…
John Shelvin returns to transmit his contagious sets to the audience and drag them down to the depths of his exceptional sounds… Caution, highly inflammable!
