Currently at the forefront of afro house with two Beatport chart-toppers Toronto’s own, Jordan John, is bursting out of his local scene into an artist demanded around the world. With a pocket full of tribal, progressive and melodic techno, Jordan John has just come off a tour in Tulum alongside Polo & Pan and Tom & Collins as well as peak time slots in EurAsian, Los Angeles, Miami and New York.
Today, we present Jordan John’s latest chart-topping collaboration with Greece’s Darksidevinyl, ‘Yazid’, on one of afro house’s most admired labels, MoBlack Records. ‘Yazid’ layers in traditional African-tribal vocals that fill the room, a gorgeous piano melody, driving bass and perfectly placed guitar licks that is capturing the attention of the masses.
The release rounds out Darksidevinyl’s ‘Kana‘ EP with a forward-thinking finale with support by Black Coffee, Themba, Bedouin and more.
Jordan’s driving and spiritual sound showcases compulsive basslines, restorative melodies and powerful progressions to bond the dance floor with his unparalleled performances. Jordan John has also performed with high-profiled artists such as Damian Lazarus, Diplo, Solomun, Dubfire, Blond:ish, Roland Clark, Polo & Pan, Tom & Collins, Pablo Fierro, Arodes, Darksidevinyl, Black Motion, Malone, Calussa, Sound Of Rituals, The Kimonos, Steve Lawler and Kintar.
