Signed to the company who have managed the likes of Diddy, Mariah Carey, Busta Rhymes and 50 Cent, Scottish singer David John releases debut single Mr. Fantastic next month – check it out here.
Written by David and hit machine Lil Eddie (Kylie, Jay Sean, J Lo) and produced by Mickey Modelle & Steve Ingham (Jessie J), Mr. Fantastic is released on May 14th.
Born and raised just outside of Glasgow, singer-songwriter David had nearly given up on his dream of stardom, when a chance meeting on holiday apparently changed his life forever.
Spotted by an A&R whilst playing with his friend’s band, David was asked to send in a demo – which he recorded in his friend’s tiny garage in Ayrshire – and within days of sending it off, he was summoned to New York and immediately signed to Violator Records & Management .
Since then he’s been recording in New York and Atlanta (at music mogul DJ Eddie F’s studio) with producers and writers such as Maddscientist (Leona Lewis, Mario, Nicole Sherzinger), Grammy award-winning Heavy D & The Boyz, Jayshawn Champion (R. Kelly, Faith Evans, Usher) and Corey Chorus Gibson (Babyface, P. Diddy, Rodney Jerkins).
In the summer of 2010, 50 Cent was impressed enough with David’s early demos to personally invite David as support on his sold-out European stadium tour, where he won fans across the media including Perez Hilton.
The single also features a heavy remix from Pacha residents Sympho Nympho (Erick Morillo, Harry ‘Choo Choo’ Romero & Jose Nunez), which they handpicked for their new album Sympho Nympho - The Beginning, out now.
