Biography

It's good to be wanted but when your name is JFK you're always top of peoples hit list and in the last 15 years JFK has risen to the top of just about everyone's.

JFK has secured constantly strong positions (no's 85, 53 and 35) in DJ Magazine Top 100 DJ and in Mixmag he was voted the country's favourite resident DJ.

Judge Jules after discovering his talents gave personal instruction for JFK to be taken on to his DJ agency, SERIOUS.

JFK's joined record label Y2K, and they were so keen for him to record a track for them that head honcho Ben Beardsworth (the man who helped develop the Prodigy on XL Records) personally got involved in the negotiations. 3 club anthems followed. Good God (UK Chart 67), The Sound of Blue (No. 75) and the pinnacle of his productions to date - Whiplash which nearly broke the UK Top 40 chart without any radio play (no. 46) Clearly showing that DJ's were playing his records and the clubbing masses were loving it.

JFK's success as a producer and an entertaining DJ, have seen his services wanted worldwide with a list of over 20 countries employing his abilities to rock a crowd. In the UK his unique talent has caused him to be recognised by all major super clubs and festival organisers wanting him on their nights to inject a little of his special atmosphere in a way that only he can.

That brings us to PASSION, the place where he was wanted most!

Since he played the first ever record at PASSION nearly 15 years ago the crowd have been increasingly eager to support him – returning week in week out to see, feel and hear him play. The Management at the Emporium asked him to take over the promotion and that's when the club really took off. With his distinctive personality as a promoter, JFK has lifted and enriched the atmosphere of the club to become an asset it is now famous for. Top DJ's and clubbers alike have since travelled from across the world to the sleepy mining town of Coalville to experience the passion of PASSION. This in itself was a massive achievement for JFK but surely his greatest success was when 2500 people turned up to see him – and him alone play for a storming 6 hour set in JFK 'THE RETURN' in 2006.

After successfully restoring Passion to its former glory in just 3 years, JFK felt it was the right time to move forward with a new project and part company with Passion one last time.

August 29th 2009 saw JFK play 'THE FINAL' at Passion, a storming seven hour emotional finale which will go down in clubbing folklore.

His respect within the industry meant he has played at every major club brand and festival, but none more closely than Gatecrasher with whom he has always had an admiration and affection for. Having played on countless tour nights in the UK and around the world JFK almost feels like a guest resident and takes great pride in delivering the quality that the Gatecrasher brand demands.

A new chapter now begins with the he now tackles one of the countries most renowned dance club and Britain's largest club The Syndicate in Blackpool which has already benefitted from his knowledge and experience.

Sept 2010 sees the re-release of 'Good God 2010' with a new mix and has already been featured on Beatport heavily, more releases are expected later in the year.

JFK knows what it's all about to be wanted. It's good to be JFK!!
