John Lamos, 37 - Raised by a family of pygmies in the lower regions of the Adirondacks, John was introduced to the drum & bass sound at an early age. His parents, being shepherds, would bang on drums and play the bass believing that the soothing sounds would increase fertility in the sheep. At the tender age of seven, John finally decided to leave the simple life of a shepherd and go on an amazing trek across the world. This Voyage led him to Chicago, where he had decided to “set up camp” as they say. Through the teachings of Basho the zen philosopher, John went to seek out and would eventually find the electronic music scene in his new home. When he heard “super sharp shooter” at a local rave, he instantly was brought back the the sounds that his parents would make with their instruments and the amazing likeness his father’s voice had to Method Man’s. Instantly he was brought to tears knowing that he could never find his parents again, but a strange rush of joy came over him when he realized his parents could live on through the art of DJ'ing. Since then, John has become a part of the bassdrive family, has won 2 consecutive drum & bass DJ battles, had become 1/4 of Chicago’s Rotation cru - the fine folks who brought you the only weekly Thursday night drum and bass session and had also taken residency at Congo along with the furthersound cru. Now he hosts an internet radio show on bassdrive.com called Hangover Hotline. You can tune in Saturday's from 2-4pm CST. When asked “Are you a professional drum & bass DJ?" John responded “No, I am a male exotic dancer, born only to treat the world to a cunning striptease, whether they like it or not."
