John was classically trained on piano and cello. He taught himself to DJ on the turntables in the club at his university between lectures and landed the running of Saturday nights on campus. Under both his own name and the name John Spacey, his DJ appearances reached audiences in eleven countries.
In America, he's performed at Pacha in Manhattan's upper West side, Le Souk in New York's East Village, Philadelphia, Toronto and the Miami WMC. In Europe, he's held a residency in Belgium, played private parties in St Tropez and headlined at the anniversary of the Louise Gallery Brussels.
In Ibiza, he's performed to capacity crowds at Cream on the Terrace at Amnesia, the famous Fiesta Del Agua water parties at Es Paradis, Bar Manumission, Bar Mambo, Soul Heaven at Savannah, and sunset at the legendary Cafe Del Mar to name a few. He's played opening sets for a host of well known DJs – including Danny Rampling, Roger Sanchez, Pete Tong, Darren Emerson and Judge Jules.
John created the club brand BeGoodMusic in 2004 with his friend Ryan. Over the next ten years, BeGood appeared at almost all of London's major venues, hosting a truly formidable portfolio of residencies across the capital. He's appeared many times at the world famous Ministry of Sound, hosting rooms for Defected in the House, Toolroom Knights and Release Yourself.
During the Winter of 2007/2008, he played a 24 date tour of French Alpine resorts including Val D'Isere, Chamonix, Meribel and the highest club in Europe in the mountain village of Val Thorens. BeGood hosted events at Marcus Brigstocke's Altitude Festival in Meribel featuring pool parties with Norman Jay MBE, Joey Negro, Brandon Block, The Dub Pistols and KT Tunstall's concert after party.
Back in the UK, John pioneered the Boat cruise to major club event format in 2005. Many followed suit and this became a regular feature of London club listings in the years that followed. BeGood went on to have eight sell out BeGood on the Thames London Boat Parties, taking thousands of music fans up and down the river. His flagship parties were featured on Ministry of Sound TV, awarded Critics Choice in London Evening Standard and ranked a number one recommended Summer event in London's Time Out Magazine.
John also ran his own creative agency and, with the weight of over twenty years DJ experience, continued to produce world class sets for special events and celebrity parties across a huge repertoire of musical genres. John's been an approved supplier to many notable businesses and his sets have entertained A-List personalities from the international film, TV and music industries.
