Biography

John’s career started some 18 years ago when his headmaster asked that he play an under 18s night for the school. After just one appearance, John was asked to become a resident at the now legendary Sterns in his hometown of Worthing. He was aged just 15. Fleming honored his residency throughout the 80s and during this period, shared the decks with some of dance-music’s most treasured DJs, including Carl Cox, Fabio and Grooverider at the club’s ‘Interdance’ night. As acid house and the rave scene reached new heights, John stepped forward as one of the leaders of the movement, DJing at Fantazia, Raindance and Ibiza as far back as 1987.

In 1990 John was diagnosed with lung cancer, aged 20. His escalating reputation was to suffer a blow as Fleming was forced to turn his back on the dance-music community in order to concentrate on recovering. After two years in hospital undergoing chemotherapy, John was in remission and moved to Florida in an attempt to regain his health. It was here that Fleming made his return to the decks with regular dates at Miami’s Cameo Theatre and guest spots up and down the East Coast to Canada. A year later John returned to the UK with a fresh perspective. It is this life-threatening experience that has given him the lust for life and determination to regain his place at the peak of his profession.

Arriving back on British shores in 1992, John filled a 7 year residency at the Zap Club in Brighton together with Dave Clarke, Tall Paul and Eric Powell. Soon the word spread and John found himself in a unique position spreading his trademark sound at corporate brands such as Ministry of Sound, Gatecrasher and Gods Kitchen, as well as the underground ‘Goa Trance’ scene playing alongside Astral Projection, Juno reactor and Floorplay.
