John Askew is without doubt one of the hottest tech-trance producer/DJs in the world. Over the last two decades his energetic, high octane performances featuring his unique, trademark, razor sharp sound have captivated fans and industry the world over.
From early days signed to Discover Records where John released initial hits “Vellum”, “The Door”, “New Dimension”, “Fade To Black”, “Vandalism” and “Chime”, John has gone on to deliver a catalogue of big singles and remixes for the coolest labels in the scene – including Duty Free Recordings, Vandit, Armada, Captivating Sounds, Perfecto Fluoro, Subculture, Monster Records, Euphonic, and Mental Asylum…..
Today John’s record label / brand VII is the hottest entity in trance. The label exclusively releases music from the seven artists signed to it (Astrix, Simon Patterson, John Askew, Sean Tyas, Freedom Fighters, Will Atkinson and Alex Di Stefano). John’s last two singles on VII – “Raven” and “Black Coffee” both hit number 1 on Beatport and marked a new era for the evolution of John’s sound - a sound that is widely recognized as the epitome of high quality tech-trance.
2018 looks set to be John’s biggest year to date with a new album scheduled for April and global tours already locked in and confirmed right through till December.
As a member of both VII and Simon Patterson’s Open Up brand John is a consistent team member of the two of the coolest label / brands in the scene.
