One Hundred Ten WKO can only be described as a journey.
Both, a musical journey for the listener and a personal journey for John as he has pushed the boundaries of his hard-edged club sound into the realms of experimentation. As track titles such as 'Star Gazing', 'Pillars of Creation' and 'Colliding Galaxies', suggest, One Hundred Ten WKO is a voyage into deep space.
The universe and its awe-inspiring beauty has long been a signature destination of trance, and John taps into the same star kissed beauty that burns within transcendental genre classics like Dance 2 Trance's seminal 'We Came In Peace' and Cosmic Baby's 'Space Track'. Cascading melodies flow like solar tides across basslines glittering in the light of distant stars, while breakbeat glitch edits are executed with the precision of orbital docking manoeuvres.
An album John has promised to himself for years, One Hundred Ten WKO is masterfully crafted with the obsession of someone working on the opus of his career. A session at London's famed Abbey Road studio resulted in pianos and strings melding seamlessly with John's iconic electronic glitches and synths. Inspiration was found on dark, underground dance floors around the world, and midnight oils were burnt brainstorming with like-minded producers and devotees of the pure trance sound. All this effort has resulted in an album that shuns any commercialised urge to produce cookie-cutter music for the masses. This is an album for the devoted listener who understands the roots and the essence of trance.
