Biography

It’s no longer a secret. Arguably one of THE hottest DJs and producers around, John Acquaviva breaks through at number 22 on the dj Mag Top 100 worldwide music fan poll!

To date, John Acquaviva’s combined audience has surpassed 2 million people during his years behind the decks. Total dj gigs and appearances amount to more than 5000 since his first significant dj residency in 1982 at Notes in hometown London, Canada.

Starting off as a clubber and fan of dance music in the final days of Disco during the late 70’s, John turned his passion into a life’s work and commitment. Growing with the evolution of new wave, industrial, post-punk and hip hop through the 80s, his eclectic taste and nightclub experience was the foundation for him to become an integral part of club music history in the 1990s. The next logical step was to start a record label. That phase began when he started the hugely influential and now legendary techno label Plus 8 records with Richie Hawtin going from strength to strength ever since.

A pioneer of new music and ideas, John was one of the first people to take notice and embrace electronic music’s digital future at the dawn of 2000. First, John got involved with and championed Final Scratch as a new way for DJ’s and artists to work, present and play club music. Following its success, John subsequently took another big step and helped launch Beatport.com, which has established itself as the club music aficionado’s go-to shop for dance and electronic music.
