John Digweed


If you’re not an avid follower of dance music but are tuned into popular culture at all
you’ve likely experienced music touched by the hands of John Digweed. Originally
hailing from England John has long since cemented his name in the pages of dance
music history. His list of achievements is groundbreaking to say the least.
Highlights of which would be the first proper DJ mix compilation (“The Mix
Collection”, done with Sasha), being the first British DJ to hold a residency at what
was then the world’s most well known club in NYC Twilo as well as having remixed
music by Underworld, Quincy Jones, William Orbit and New Order. John Digweed is
a DJs DJ. The beauty of what he does lies in just how different he really is from his
contemporaries. From his early beginnings in the blossoming scene of acid house to
the apex of the international DJing world he has created and maintained a level of
integrity that is the benchmark for both DJs and producers globally. John Digweed
has become the people’s choice while maintaining his longstanding presence in
underground dance culture. His popularity as both a DJ and a person seems to have
no limits, but his efforts transcend DJing alone, he is as much a producer and
promoter. His management and creative direction for the Bedrock record label has helped
launch the careers of many DJ’s to have a record released on Bedrock serves as the
global stamp of production quality, ingenuity and integrity for underground
producers worldwide. In fact, the name John Digweed is synonymous with those
very qualities. From the nights he has either created or been a part of. To 40 of his
world-renowned mix cd’s (Transitions, “Live In”, Northern Exposure, The Mix
Collection) he has consistently produced characteristic products that stay in
demand, himself included. As one half of Bedrock the production duo he has produced and remixed countless
productions. Two tracks made it into the top 40 (“Heaven Scent” and “For What You
Dream Of”) the latter of which featured in the movie “Trainspotting”. ] He and Nick
Muir as Bedrock the production team also scored a Hollywood film (“Stark Raving
Mad”) as well as the animated series of “Spider-Man” for MTV. John can also be found playing at the worlds biggest festivals (EDC, Tomorrowland, Time Warp, Ultra, Coachella) alongside some of the worlds coolest clubs (Output,
Fabric). He was one on the first DJs to tour the States extensively (Delta Heavy and
Area 2) and played alongside Fatboy Slim at the massive one-off event ‘The Big
Beach Boutique’ in Brighton to over 250,000 fans. The 2017 Resistance Ibiza
Residency and world tour shows John is still in demand to headline cutting edge
underground events around the world with the best visual and sound productions.
His Transitions radio show is broadcast in over 60 countries worldwide to over 14
million people a week. It has achieved a near cult status with listeners and is the
number one show consistently on Mixcloud. As a person John’s lack of pretense is complimented by imagination and invention.
Good reason for John being one of the most respected, analyzed and imitated DJs in
the world. His DJ sets are both solid and durable with unyielding precision.
His DJing and production sound has practically become its own genre. He generates
an aura of self-explanatory excitement and enthusiasm. His sets are often filled with
moodiness and musical mystery but held down with a punchy distinctiveness and
earthly rhythm. Always emanating a sense of boundlessness he overlaps dream
events that spill into reality with an enormous certainty.
