> Also watch Quivvers E- card


"Quivver tunes are a part of every top DJ's box and have been for some time now, from the early days of 'Saxy Lady' and 'Twist & Shout' right up to date with the monstrous 'She Does' , Quivver has been, and continues to be, one of dance music's main attractions. Quivver was originally signed to A&M Records, where, along with writing partner Neil Barry, they released 2 tracks (as mentioned above), both making huge dents on the dance-floors of the world and gathering a massive, ever growing following for Quivver along the way.

The likes of Sasha, Oakenfold, Digweed and many, many more became fans and Quivver became a blip on everyone's radar. During this period John was also recording under the name of Skanna and had a label of the same name where he released around ten tracks that reached the hearts (and record boxes) of people like Fabio and Grooverider and Doc Scott.

The Skanna tunes were an outlet for John's darker side - drum and bass and deep beats - influenced by John's love of Hip-Hop, Electro and all that went off in the breakbeat days of the 80's. A shake up at A&M left Quivver free to move onto pastures new and John at this time had split with his recording partner, but continued to work under the same name. Paul Oakenfold was first off the mark in the Quivver chase, already a huge fan and seeing this extreme talent free for the taking, Paul snapped up John and signed him to his own Perfecto label. John released tunes on Perfecto; DJ'd as part of their massive tours and continued to blossom until the demise of the label and their split with East West in 98.

Later in 98 John signed up a deal with Virgin records and changed his recording name to stoneproof. The release of his first single 'Everything's Not You' on Virgin came with much critical acclaim and huge support at club level with The Quivver Mix on the track being included on 'Northern Exposure' , 'Resident -2 Years of Oakenfold at Cream' , sasha's 'Global Underground San Francisco' and more! The sudden closure of Twilo in May of 2001 put paid to the much anticipated Quivver bi-monthly residency which was to begin around that time but John Graham continues to remix and DJ also and he is also one third of Tilt (along with Mick Park and Mick Wilson). Remixes recently have included Dido 'Here With Me", Jeff Wayne's 'Eve of The War', Space Manoeuvres' 'Stage One', Culture Club's 'Do You Really Want To Hurt Me' and 'Time' , and more recently on Libra 'Calling Your Name' and Danny Tenaglia 'Do You Feel My Love' and Led Zeppelin's "Baby I'm Gonna Leave You Now".

The first time that band has been remixed by anyone. John is also recording in the studio with Sasha, working on what promises to be a monster tune for Sasha's artist album which follows in the near future. John will further demonstrate his unique singing voice and supreme production skills with a highly anticipated artist album of his own. The record will feature a five piece band and will be released in the spring of 2002. As for now, Quivver is responsible for the fifth chapter of the Transport series on Kinetic Records. Released on November 6th, it will be backed up by a full US Tour.
