As an ubiquitous fixture of Northern California’s music scene Little John is more than a DJ and an icon; he is a force of nature.
An extraordinary DJ, producer, remixer, and music historian, Little John’s musical artistry transcends genres with an intensity, knowledge and savviness possessed by few. Whether he’s playing Tech-House, Mid-tempo, Future Bass, or Booty Slap, this innovator continually unites factions and taps new levels of creativity simply for the heart of it. With an acutely discerning ear and an open mind and heart, his ability to read a crowd and mix the perfect vibe truly sets him apart. His is a genuinely unique approach that will move body, mind, and soul.
His roots run deeply through the creative hot-bed of San Francisco’s mid 90’s underground House scene and the incredibly diverse Santa Cruz free party scene. He became a resident of the legendary 13 Moon Tribe while simultaneously pioneering production of the wildly successful Raindance events, which continue to run strong today. Little John has played along-side many other first-class musicians and is regularly requested with such acts as Bassnectar, Tipper, Mark Farina, A.Skillz, and Fort Knox Five, to name just a few.
Current musical projects include a collaboration with Takuya Nakamura of Cocorosie; tapping into his gypsy roots and the birthing of his alter ego, Gudada, performing Gypsy Swing, Balkan Beat and Camel Krunk.
