Satellite Grooves basically started around the end of 1999. Over the past 3 years John has been creating and releasing his songs on various labels such as Skylab Operations, Vex, TBTMO, Kikapu, and even his new self ran record label, Slide the Needle. With each release you can tell he’s coming closer to his own sound changing the face of what music is and introducing, somewhat, what music can be with his perception..
Playing live is always a challenge for Satellite Grooves. Though there is somewhat an experimental feel to his recorded material, performing live broadens the road to experimenting with his songs. Occasionally, visuals are added to the performances to boost the over all feel of the performance. It is truly an ever changing experience and it can be promised that if you see Satellite Grooves once, it will not be the same the next time. It’s not because Satellite Grooves has a lost sense of identity, but rather because in John’s mind, music can be released differently depending on mood, and direction John is interested in playing with that evening.
What leads to the conclusion to this bio is where does Satellite Grooves fall if you must put it in a genre? This is an ever questing question that even John has, but to simplify the task John just calls it beep music. Or maybe indie electro pop idm computer experimental bleep beep music. You make the judgment…
