Having been part of the house music revolution in Australia, John first came to prominence by winning the Victorian leg of the DMC turntablist competition…Twice!!! Not to mention making DJ Mag’s first ever Top 100 DJ’s list.
Since that early start over one million CD’s with a John Course mix have been sold in Australia, as well as regular productions in the studio over the years as half of Electro Funk Lovers, under his alias J.A.C. or most recently remixing Rave Radio’s “You’re Making Me High” as John Course.
One of the founders of Vicious Recordings, John works as passionately as ever overseeing Vicious’ ever expanding business, including the original Vicious label and imprints Vicious Bitch & Vicious Black.
From the skills learnt early in his career scratching and mixing vinyl, John’s technical prowess is still visible as he manipulates today’s digital sounds via a bank of CDJ’s. His musical taste is diverse, he can often be found behind the decks at a dark little club dropping some wicked underground vibes or working
his way through his extensive back catalogue of house and disco.
In the age of the bedroom and promoter DJ, John’s technical skills are only surpassed by his experience in programming the right music for the crowd in front of him, which is one of the basic but sometimes forgotten principles of a good DJ. It is probably that trait alone that ensures he is still in demand several decades after those two DMC titles.
