    John is my favourite here so far. You can tell even without meeting him in person, that he has a very positive energy that flows into his production work. He listens to the clients requests and delivers above and beyond. I wish him a lot of luck in everything he does. I will be back !

    John is an incredibly talented producer with lots of patience with me. The disco spirit lives in him and it only gets better. It was an absolute pleasure working with him and he's able to take your vision and turn it into the perfect disco reality. I am extremely happy and satisfied in the process of it all. Highly recommended and I would definitely work with him again! Thank you so much John! :)
