John Baptiste

Recovery Collective / Bassic / Open - Australia

The John Baptiste sound takes form as cavernous depths, warmed with bold bass, afloat with playful buoyancy. Darkened techno is shrouded by cheekiness, configured of clear-cut percussion sliced with psychedelia and strong expanding progressions. A proven fixture in the Australian scene over the past decade, John Baptiste has evolved with the local cultures, influencing his direction as equally as his own self exploration. Baptiste has emerged, from an avid member of Melbourne’s Suckmusic, to a family artist of Recovery Collective, with releases also finding their place on Open Records, Bassic Records, Ugenius Music and upcoming on several international imprints in 2019. Voyaging throughout the many nationwide gatherings, John Baptiste has taken his lively performances to Subsonic Music Festival, Strawberry Fields, Rabbits Eat Lettuce, Bohemian Beatfreaks, Elements, Chi Wow Wah Town, Esoteric, Babylon and Mushroom Valley. His open and collaborative nature has forged striking partnerships, producing regularly with Samwise, Amuze and Liam Seiker, various vocalists and as his duo alias Khatapillah. Passion and devotion to music drives the John Baptiste journey, with a constant burn to grow and thrive.
