Over the past twenty years, Johnny Fiasco has become a legend and recognized as a true pioneer of Chicago’s house scene. His remarkable sound can gracefully combine soulful electronic sounds, tech vibes, fundamental house, disco, and pure funk. Growing up on Chicago’s South side, Fiasco’s beginnings can be found at the famous club Shelter. He began pushing the boundaries as one of the pioneers of house music side by side Mark Farina at Smartbar, Lizard Lounge and the infamous Club Naked.
Today, Fiasco is one of electronic music’s top producers and remixers. His reputation as a producer has landed him work with labels such as Sony, Jive, Epic, Warner Bros, and indies such as Defected, Om Records, and Universal UK. His vast catalog includes work with artists such as Kaskade, Owl City, Rihanna, Donna Blakely, Bob Sinclair, DJ Sneak and many more. Billboard credits Johnny Fiasco’s Samantha James “Rise” (Om Records) #1 dance-chart position, and a Billboard® #1 rework of Justin Timberlake’s smash single “Cry Me A River.” Without a doubt a Fiasco record can always be found in the hands of DJs worldwide. Current side projects include cutting edge sound design and composing for MTV, Microsoft, T-Mobile, Monster Energy, HP, Dew Tour and video games.
