Time to dance to a totally different beat… or is it, when a production and classic hit song ‘ Just a Little’ gets the House rework treatment and is instantly brought bang up to date, just in time to kickstart the party scene or lift the lockdown blues depending on your global status. Think succinct vocal cuts, a rolling beat and perfectly punctuated bassline. Don’t just take our word for it… read on.
Having been part of the house music since its emergence in Australia, John first came to prominence by winning the Victorian leg of the DMC turntablist competition…A feat he repeated two years in a row!!! Moving from turntablist roots, he embraced house music from the start & was listed in DJ Mag’s first ever Top 100 DJ’s list. He has gone on to start a successful label, produce original music, mix over a million CD’s for Ministry Of Sound, One Love & Vicious, have a national dance music radio show in Australia & most recently, hosting his own webcast during the Covid-19 isolation period…
Between all of the above, John also gets the urge to produce music, having been part of Blackout (who’s “Gottta Have Hope” was a huge club record globally in the late 90’s), as half of Electro Funk Lovers & with solo productions under his alias J.A.C. or simply as John Course where he first remixed for Defected Records on a remix of King Unique’s now classic “Love Is What You Need” with Andy Van way back in 2000. His most recent remixes have been Rave Radio’s “You’re Making Me High”and Sgt Slick’s “Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!”
John’s latest production, a house music cover of Liberty X’s R&B hit “Just A Little”, takes his dance floor aesthetic & mashes it with the hooks from this Liberty X classic. Rolling bass, crisp clean drums & a jacking groove combined with the sexy vocals brings this classic hit back to life with a fresh take. Add to the Original a more club focused Dub, not to mention cracking remixes bringing super sweet piano house vibes from Mind Electric and this is set to get many a dance floor working “Just A Little” once again!
