Johnny Deep [Boogie House] &
One of Johnny’s first DJ moments in India was when mega star Amitabh Buchan approached his DJ console at WInk(Taj Hotel) and applauded Johnny’s international twist on the dance music experience. More recently, MTV’s Nikil Chinapa rated Johnny’s DJ performance as his favorite moment of the huge Sunburn Festival in 2009. An event that saw the best DJs in the world perform in Goa.
He has played all over India including appearances at Blue Frog, Zenzi, Aurus and also amazed crowds at the Grand Opening of Tote. He was also chosen to perform at the internationally viewed Red Bull Speed Link event featuring Formula 1 driver, David Coulthard
He has been written about in many publications including The Times of India and Hindustani times.
His first asian DJ experience was way back in 2001 in Tokyo. On more than one occasion, clubs were unable to shut their doors because the folk were rocking to Johnny Deep’s sound even past 9AM. His early sets were a seduction in deep house, but later on, he was well known to whip a crowd into a frenzie with his blazing style of deep tech funky beats.
It was not long before his residency at G Martinis…Tokyo’s freshest club, that he created a demand for his DJ Talents. Promoters in Tokyo were keen to promote his musical message. His deep get down vibe coupled with sublime mixing techniques were heard at some of Tokyo’s finest establishments including Club Asia and the reknowned Space Lab Yellow.
In 1993 johnny began crafting a career in music by hosting his first radio show ‘Grooves’ on Sydney’s 99.3FM. He quickly gained the reputation of ‘making the mic sound nice’ and has gone on to host a total of eight radio shows. His voice and his music have been heard on Nova FM, Fresh FM, 2SER FM and RTR FM in Perth. He’s also been the exclusive presenter for The Ministry of Sound, presenting their Club Nation Shows on Wild FM and Rhythm FM.
In recent times, Johnny has taken radio to a whole new level by ‘branding’ the deep music concept in his recent radio shows, called Expansions. On 99.3 FM, Expansions is a journey in nu jazz, broken beats, soul and deep house, while Expansions on Pulse Radio is more of a dance floor affair, yet still keeping its deep and musical integrity. Not only does Johnny present these 2 shows, he now handles all production from the ground up.
Johnny was born in the UK but is no stranger to Australian shores. His technical skills were confirmed in 2001 when he was the finalist in the DJ EXPO 2001 DJ Competition. Since then,he has made appearances at some of Sydney’s cooler clubs and has hosted his own club events including ‘Audio Station’ at the World Niteclub. This event showcased some of Sydney’s finest DJ and live talent in 3 rooms with Johnny mixing it up in the main room.
With Johnny’s new found love for the minimal sound, 2007 and 2008 saw him excite clubbers in no less than 4 cities, including Madrid, Barcelona and Bangkok.
He also released 2 outstanding EPs on the Farilad record label in Portugal with a new EP due out in June 2010.
