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. His list of achievements is groundbreaking to say the least. Highlights of which would be the first proper dj mix compilation (“Renaissance”, 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, also with Sasha) as well as having remixed music by Danny Tenaglia, Underworld, Quincy Jones and New Order and many more. John Digweed is a DJ's DJ, he has reached the very top of his profession, being voted #1 in a voter's poll by DJ magazine in 2001.
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 DJ'ing alone, he is as much a producer and promoter. His moniker “Bedrock” is actually three things: a record label, a promotions company and a studio production partnership with Nick Muir. 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. His Kiss100 radio show is quickly coming up on it’s forth year as one of the most successful dance music shows in all of England with internet broadcasts to the world. It has achieved a near cult status with listeners trading CD’s and mp3’s of the various broadcasts across the internet. Without heroic pretensions his sets are 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. Catch John mastermind set in person in Jakarta on mid November 2005.
