John Graham, aka QUIVVER, just released a brand new and completely funky Tech-House/Deep House track for free download on his SoundCloud page. In what has become a trend among producers, the track was released for free as a thank you to his fans. The Los Angeles-based producer/DJ first appeared on my radar last year with his awesome song “Fakes & Bullshit”, but it’s evident he’s been making music since before 2012. As Tech-House and Deep House quickly become more popular with dance music fans, it’s no surprise that this man has also seen a rise in popularity. Here’s the unabridged bio from his SoundCloud page:
Quivver is world-renowned DJ / producer / songwriter / singer John Graham, but it is not surprising that any music John produces becomes in high demand by so many DJs. The fact he has penned a host of other monikers to record under, including Space Manoeuvres, Stoneproof, Skanna and Tilt, each representing a different shade of his sound, should give you an idea of his scope and versatility. Over the last 16 years John’s music has become a vital ingredient in every super club DJ’s arsenal and his remix discography includes the likes of Led Zeppelin, Simply Red, Kylie Minogue and Culture Club to name a few. He is officially a Pioneer DJ. Over that time John has also been performing as a DJ at some of the world’s hottest venues, including a residency with Steve Lawler at the legendary Twilo in New York, multiple shows at Glastonbury, Homelands, Ibiza, Ministry of Sound, Avalon, LA and a show at the Sydney Olympics.
Originally signing with A&M in 1994, John moved on to join Paul Oakenfold’s Perfecto label and then to Virgin Records before establishing his own Boz Boz label. He has also co-written, produced and performed with Hybrid and Planet Funk touring the globe’s top music festivals including Glastonbury, Live8, Coachella and Ultra. His music has been licensed and charted innumerable times including most recently to Frank Miller’s “The Spirit.” He has also been and is working on film composing in “The Taking of Pelham 123,” “Twelve,” and “Shrek Forever After 2010.” Additionally, has produced the music for Spove games that include the popular “Modern Warfare 2” and “Transformers.” In May 2010 John released the “Yeah Yeah” EP on Bedrock Records that went straight to No 2 in the beatport techno chart and didn’t leave the chart till august. A follow up “Orgazoid” came out on Bedrock in October with “Funktribe EP” will be released on Yoshitoshi and “Makes You Happy” on Rogue Recordings early next year. Other 2010 productions included collaboration with Anthony Pappa and remixes for Hernan Cattaneo, Rabbit in The Moon, Monaque, Cid Inc and Verano. Summer 2010 also saw John back in the UK, DJ’ing to a packed Glastonbury and then a sold out Ministry of Sound in London and Fall 2011 had John playing Los Angeles, New York City, San Francisco, Phoenix and San Diego. This winter John has returned to the UK with gigs throughout Europe. Coming back to the U.S., John’s new band will be performing songs from his much-anticipated new album in the upcoming year with the album set to be released in the spring 2011 with a recent placement of his new song from the album “All Fall Down” on CSI – NY. No rest for the wicked!
For those heading to Ultra Festival weekend one, you can catch Quivver at the Bedrock stage on Friday 3/16 from 5:15-6:15, which I recommend if you’re looking for some funky stuff!
