Poverty, County Limerick
mynameisjOhn grew up on the cold hard streets of Ennis, headphones on and hood up. He collected tapes, played basketball and entered radio competitions. Now he DJs and makes beats. In between, he did a lot of shows with a lot of people and practiced everyday. He’s released 2 EPs, which both reference his grá for a dollop of hiphop, electronica, psych rock and straight-up paranoia. He’s been lucky enough to run with a few collectives in his day and has been a part of Kerrynini, 091, the Lung Donors, Club Head Bang Bang, A Love Supreme and Community Skratch. He now performs off a one turntable/mixer/Kaoss Pad set-up and is likely to suffer from repeated neck muscle strain after every show. He puts it all in. And he’s done a lot of shows, supporting folk like Daedelus, Gaslamp Killer, Hudson Mohawke, Onra, Ras G, Luke Vibert, Om Unit, Prefuse 73, Benga, The Pharcyde, Andy Votel, Jeremy Ellis, Adebisi Shank and the like. He loves a bit of cheesecake.
