JOHN B – BRAINSTORM (18th Anniversary Edition)
Originally a USA-only Mix CD in peak-Electroclash-era 2001, John B has remastered Brainstorm (in his newly built studio), and added 4 previously unreleased tracks from that time including the rare “Synthpop Electro Mix” of ‘Up All Night’ to the package. Previously unavailable anywhere digitally, and now with the individual DJ-Friendly tracks alongside the mixed versions, this is a great album for D&B collectors and fans of John’s early explorations into what would become his ‘Electrostep’ Sound.
