With an unparalleled legacy in the annals of analog and digital electronic music John Acquaviva can boast and list pages of accomplishments in just about every aspect of the music world. Having surged to the top A-list of producers over the years, and a steady stream of club anthems and chart topping tunes, Acquaviva's productions have won over and set the mood for an entire generation of clubbers and clubbing worldwide.
Acquavia began his international career in 1989 with Richie Hawtin by founding one of the world’s best known and influential techno labels, Plus 8 Records. In 1993, Acquaviva and Hawtin also founded Definitive Recordings and the label is now celebrating 18 years of legendary club and underground anthems. An acknowledged pioneer of new music and ideas, John was one of the first people to take notice and embrace electronic music’s digital future at the dawn of 2000 by championing Final Scratch. And following that success, John took another enormous step to help launch Beatport.com, the biggest dance-music download site in the world.
His international career has spanned 2 decades now, having DJ’d professionally for almost another decade before that. Throughout thousands of parties millions of people have heard him play and continue to keep him in demand.
