Our story

John “Vinyl Junkie” - Woods has been a name on the Bristol DJ circuit for over 30 years. Starting out in the free party scene, it wasn't long before he found himself playing the mainstage at one of rave history's most iconic events: Tribal Gathering. In the years that followed, John has touched almost every part of the industry from promotion, production, running record labels and performing across a range of genres.

With a passion for music coursing through his veins, John has been on a lifelong quest to share his love for music with the world. He made his name in the early days of rave music and hardcore, laying the foundation for a thriving career that has spanned decades. His dedication to the craft led him to complete a First Class Honours degree in Creative Music Production & Technology at Greenwich University, further honing his expertise.

With two record labels, a slew of his own releases and a regular show on Eruption Radio, John’s connection to the rave scene remains unbroken since he first fell into it in Ibiza in 1989. His journey through the evolution of electronic music has led him to create not only an online record shop but a sonic sanctuary where music aficionados unite.
