from Los Angeles California
Born in Los Angeles in 1982, John Dadzie aka Infiltrata aka 12th Planet prescribes a transatlantic flavour to Med School. Growing up in the south of the city, John’s musical apprenticeship began in his high school days by playing in bands and regularly attending raves and jungle parties. The turning point came when he formed Imperial Recordings with DJ Lith, a stepping stone for John to excel in a field of production and management.
The Infiltrata profile skyrocketed thanks to support from Boxed Agency UK and John hot-footed it across the Atlantic stepping into the European dance circuit. He was able to catch the attention of big players in the d&b community with releases on Cartel, Renegade Hardware, Tech Itch, Barcode, Cymbalism, and Uprising. Infiltrata has forged successful collaborations with heavy hitting d&b artists such as Spor, Limewax, Concord Dawn, Evol Intent and Mayhem. He also joined forces with Dave “Hochi” Weston, producing a telling remix of the massive Photek single “Sidewinder”. On the back of this he later helped establish the TEKDBZ label, a subsidiary of Photek Productions.
