John Heckle is an abstract and experimental house producer from the United Kingdom signed to Mathematics Recordings. Biography: Like many Merseysiders before him, John was discovered under the arches of Cavern Club in Liverpool. Performing on three decks at ‘Alcatraz’ at the tender age of fifteen, John caught the eyes of heroes Regis and Surgeon, who took one listen to a demo of his music and gave it to RSB records. The track was released in 2006 on vinyl under the moniker ‘Hek’. The Murder Boys themselves played that very record on the Maida Vale sessions on BBC Radio One not long after. John was then offered a residency in the emerging Rehab event at the famous Lemon Lounge in Liverpool.

With a policy of not booking big names and free entry, people flocked from as far as Glasgow and Dublin to revel in the music. John quickly cemented the peak time slot until the night came to a close after its Third Birthday. In this time John was offered more production work, one notably in aid of a Parkinson’s Disease Charity. Various gigs around the UK followed, as he added Roland Drum Machines to his fast paced Live/DJ shows. Production took a back seat during this time, as John concentrated on the quality of his performances.

In 2009, following a 2-year release hiatus, he rekindled his passion for production after becoming inspired by the music of record label Mathematics Recordings (in particular the music of Jamal Moss, whom John had travelled to Belgium to see perform live). The purchase of a Roland synthesizer with his brother Bill shortly after marked the beginning of a new sound in John’s production; a sound which consequently bled into his still-frantic DJ sets. In 2010, John was signed to Mathematics Recordings, releasing the exceptionally well-received ‘Life On Titan EP’, to cap the peak of his short career so far. A track on Tabernacle Records soon followed, before a track on ‘Music from Mathematics Vol.7’ and 2011’s ‘The 4th Dimension EP’. 2011 also saw the release of his hotly awaited debut album, 'The Second Son', as well as a further EP - 'Extrovert/Introvert' - on Tabernacle Records. John continues to perform, using an assortment of hardware to accompany his ever-varying vinyl selections Read more on Last.fm.
