John Askew - Z List Uber Star


Z List Uber Star is John Askew's highly anticipated second artist album – due for release on October 27th on Discover Records. Early reactions have been amazing, including from Paul van Dyk, who hammered the title track consistently in his recent sets – including it in his Essential mix from this year's Colours Fest. Eddie Halliwell and Above & Beyond have also been championing the massive 'Fade to Black', which has already become one of this year's summers anthems and John's debut vocal release "Nothing Left Between Us" feat. Senadee will be a big single for Matt Hardwick's new label "Kill the Lights".

In September John will begin to tour the album including an extensive run of gigs across Australia, New Zealand, The Far East, North & South America and of course Europe. While down under, he will also be recording a live DJ mix album from the country's most famous club – Home in Sydney.

As a DJ, John continues his long standing residency at The Gallery (Friday's at Ministry of Sound, London) where he can regularly be seen and heard rocking the dance floor alongside the likes of Paul van Dyk, Tiesto, Armin van Buuren, Ferry Corsten and Paul Oakenfold.

The last 18 months has seen John play prime time sets at some of the world's coolest festivals including his legendary set on the main stage at the Nature One Festival in Germany – which was broadcast live across the whole country on its main radio station - Sunshine Live.

After early single successes with tracks like 'Vellum', 'The Door' and 'New Dimension', John has gone on to deliver release after release of consistently high quality club music. More recent releases have included 'Blackout', 'Homesick', 'All or Nothing' and 'Chime', all of which have graced the playlists of the world's best DJ's and have helped cement John's position as one of the UK's leading trance / techno producers. As a remixer John has worked for numerous high profile labels such as Euphonic, Afterglow, Ministry Of Sound and Paul Van Dyk's legendary Vandit Records.

He released his debut album 'Lower the Tone' in 2006 to much critical acclaim in the press and within 4 weeks of its release, the album had sold out.
