“A national treasure of trance music”
BBC Radio 1 (Essential mix)
“One of the Pioneers of the electronic dance music scene”
The daily Telegraph Newspaper
Calling John’s life in electronic music anything less than extraordinary would be a considerable understatement. Over the last three decades he’s been behind 30 music-compilations and artist albums, which have sold cumulatively in excess of 10 million copies. Of which 10 of his mix compilations and five single releases have made the UK’s national Top 40 (on major labels including Virgin, EMI and Warner Music), whilst his most recent club tracks have resulted in a succession of Beatport top 10 chart positions. As a DJ his club, arena & festival showings are legion. . Everywhere from the UK’s Ministry of Sound and Cream to Cielo and Avalon in the US (and most points in between) have played host to his night-to-dawn sets. He’s also a mainstay at festivals like Tomorrowland, Dreamstate, EDC , Serbia’s Exit, Sunburn, Exxxperience, Boomtown, S.U.N. to Australia’s Earthcore.
He’s soundtracked a number of Hollywood film & TV productions, most recently scoring ‘The Colour Of Time’ - the James Franco/Mila Kunis/Jessica Chastain-starring biog of Pulitzer winner C.K. Williams. He’s composed music for various BBC movies, dramas & shows (inc. BBC2’s world-spanning Top Gear), as well as for ones as for channels as diverse as Discovery, National Geographic and MTV. John’s a regular at London’s Abbey Road studios, where he’s previously worked with the illustrious Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. Labelled “a national treasure of trance music” by Radio 1’s Pete Tong, John has dropped his brand of underground science at more than 160 venues over the last three years. His record label J00F Recordings and his radio show, Global Trance Grooves (broadcast on DI. FM) provides the most diehard of fanbases’ with their monthly fix of J00F.
John 00 Fleming is a DJ known for his legendary extended sets that often sees him take over the whole evening of clubs such as Avalon, Chinese laundry, Cielo and more. ‘Open-till-close’ is a term John shies from these days. Aside from being “just the latest bandwagon in electronic music”, it in someway also implies ‘limitation’, something he’s never seen real dance music as having. “Playing longer sets isn’t about spending more hours behind the decks”, says John. “It’s about plot and planning. Reading, not where the floor’s going to be in 5 minutes, but the consensus on where it should be in 40 mins or an hour. It’s about trajectory. It’s about ebb, flow, nuance and subtle stylistic traverse. In many ways it’s the last true DJ art form and for many years now it’s been the most challenging, thrilling and rewarding part of what I do. ‘JOOF Editions’ albums are my testaments to that”.
