Mr John biography

Produced by Daniel Peyer and Gerd Jakobs
Engineered by Fulvio Zafret
Label : Dance Factory. Distributed in the US by BMG.

Mr John's aim was to be a project in the Ice MC style : a ragga-rapper and a female vocalist singing the chorus, in a more Masterboy-like musical style. The real name of this mysterious artist is John Edokoplor. He was born on the 2nd May 1969 in Benin City (Nigeria). His grandfather was an authentic prince of Nigeria, therefore John should be too. But his father refused the kingdom and preferred becoming an industrial businessman in New York. John lived until 1992 in New York with his parents. He came to Switzerland in 1992, and lived in Basel till 1996. Then he went back to New York where he currently works as an insurance broker and an auto salesman.

Together with a female vocalist he released his first single : U Gotta Move Me which became instantly an amazing and powerful euro hit. The second single was Get It On released in 1996. It also did very well in the German charts and dance charts all over Europe. It used the voice of Susi, a studio vocalist who also worked for the project DIP. Still in 1996 he brought us his 3rd single : It's Not Too Late, still with Susi, another great euro hit.

Due to John's departure back to New York, this was the official end of the project. It's Not Too Late is the last single to be released by the real Mr John. However there were some other singles released by other producers, illegaly since Daniel Peyer owned the rights of the use of Mr John's name. Trial is not over yet...

The single Take Me Away did not disappoint euro fans, even in this sad year when Euro faded away from charts and success. It included 6 versions : a Radio Fa-Zi mix, a Crazy Z & DJ GoldenNose Club mix, an Extended Summer mix, an Influence Sun-fun edit, an After-show party mix, and a No-voice Fa-Zi edit. It was composed, arranged and produced by Carsten Zintel (aka Crazy G) and Giuseppe Fascina (aka DJ GoldenNoise). The choruses were sung by Danni K. Then in the beginning of 1998 came Time Is Ticking Away. This single is one of the most hard to get eurodance hits because it was released mostly in East europe, Japan and North Canada.
