Meian (明暗) – light and darkness: Opposites, but part of one entity. What we show in the light, is different from who we are in the dark. John, Johannes in German, first experienced underground electronic music at the age of 3, when his parents played a CD of Techno on their new sound system. Following a possibly inherent instinct, the young boy started moving to the beat… and it changed his life forever. ‘The Underground’ and its music genres captivated the German born, but it was not until he came into contact with the dedicated community that he decided to become a DJ & producer himself. On his path that led John to leave his birthplace, he lived and performed in the Netherlands, Hong Kong & Australia. Now John is based in Tokyo. True to his German heritage, he has made it his mission to share the driving and mesmerizing electronic sounds that are part of his home country’s (sub-)culture and his own selection of Melodic Deep House and Techno to the dedicated underground scene in Tokyo and Japan. His sound has already gained recognition after his performances in renowned clubs such as Womb, Vent Vision and Circus and with the scene opening up again expect a lot more from this growing talent.
