Londoner and house-loving DJ Glen John had a passion for music at a very early age. Choosing music over toys, Glen John began collecting vinyl from the tender age of seven and after owning his first ‘CD decks’ at 13 (two standard CD players without pitch control and a mixer!), it was clear his passion would one day become a career.
Having worked within the music industry for over 10 years and building up a diverse and eclectic collection of music, Glen John began DJing at BBC staff parties at the famous Television Centre in 2012. Playing a mixture of commercial chart, 80s soul and classic house, Glen John was repeatedly invited back, DJing on the night when the historical Television Centre closed for good.
In 2014, Glen John began DJing full time, playing at Base Bar in Kings Cross and private events such as weddings, birthdays and parties. With the ability to play all genres of music, from house, to commercial dance, pop, R&B, disco and soul, the rest is history and Glen John became the first choice DJ for private events at The Edge Bar Soho and Chelsea FC’s Under The Bridge.
DJ appearances include a residency with The Edge Bar Soho and London DJ gigs at Gaucho, Heaven London (Popcorn), Exhibit B, Freedom (bar & club sets), Studio Spaces (Shoreditch), Shadow Lounge (Create DJ Competition where he came 2nd) and the Islington Academy O2 where he warmed up for X Factor band Stereo Kicks. Glen John also took part in the Gaydio Radio New Year Takeover 2015 alongside DJs Soul Avengerz, Moto Blanco and Chew Fu.
Since March 2015, Glen John has been travelling the world as a professional DJ and Entertainment Host on luxury cruise ships with P&O Cruises, playing chart, classics, disco, soul, reggae and pop to up to 4,000 British passengers each cruise across Britannia, Azura and Ventura.
