Born and raised in Athens, Greece Johnn’s first exposure to music started at a very young age. His passion for music and appetite for several genres such as soul, funk, rock and reggae have all played a significant role and inspire him to this day.
At 15 years of age, the bug of house music caught on, but it wasn’t until he moved to London for his MA in Interactive Media where he experienced London’s nightlife, visiting the best clubs, major festivals and traveled to the Mecca of house music, Ibiza, that he realized music was going to be an important part of his life.
Music has always motivated me to create and enjoy life. It makes people dance, smile and love. I want to share this passion with others.
