The John Askew/Discover/Discover Dark thread
I searched for a thread on Askew but couldnt find one so meh... fuck it.

This bloke is, along with Corsten, the best Trance act in the world for mine.

Z List Uber Star is the best Artist album I've ever heard...... seriously it is just so fucking good its ridiculous.

And Discover/Discover Dark is the home to my favourite style of Trance.... I am a huge fanboy.

I cant wait for his mix album Floor Control to be released in October.... going to be awesome I reckon.

Such a diverse and talented artist imo..... from Blue to Chime to Nothing Left Between Us.

Any mixes from Askew or Discover artists post them in this thread for fanboys like me to get there hands on... dont want to miss anything.

Also, any news or upcoming releases throw them in here.....

DJ Jack-Da Bomb(John Askew remix) ...... wicked.

Discover (and their parents and their offshoots) is fantastic... JoC was way better when he was putting stuff out on Discover than Armada...

Askew can go Acid- Chime, Giving You Acid

Askew can go Broken Beat- 667

...... and thats just on one album.

Agreed, he should have got the TE main stage, not Aly & Fila.

His 2007 EM is one of my favourite trance mixes of all time.

Another thing also worth checking out is Trance Republic, a CD released a few years ago featuring mixes by Agnelli & Nelson, Darren Tate and the main man himself; John Askew. Askew's mix is fantastic.

Didn't know he had a radio show, although as Pete Tong pointed out, he was a part of Vonyc there for a bit.

Sounds well worth checking out.

See, now if you'd followed my system of searching and indexing down by label and not artist there's no way you would've gone past discover or any of these tunes...

THIS THREAD = WIN!!

Discover Recordings and all the associated labels are THE SHIT! Askew, Activa/Mekk/Mekk v, Downey, Tyas, O'callaghan, Kearney, etc. all have there best stuff on this label. Definately a fanboy here.

BTW, John Askew - Fade to Black ***touches myself***

i just find it funny that for a lotta people, fade to black put askew on the map... he's been around for yonks and actually, until fade to black, i didnt think too much of the guy... i LOVE his record label, but his productions never really did anything for me..

I'm an askew fan. Saw him at TE in a pretty empty tent for the last set of the night whilst people were at Aly & Fila on main and he killed it . Met him, tyas and patterson after his set to, which topped it off nicely. I quite like his latest remix of Gary Maguire - One Way also.

John Askew- Bored of You, Bored of Me is one of the best pieces of Trance of the last 10 years for me........

You might remember the thread I started a while back about alot of Trance basically not living up to the name the genre suggests....

Bored of You, Bored of Me is a 'real' Trance tune..... that breakdown is just pure magic. emotive. awesome.
