It was there that he met DJ Akylla in 1997 who suggested that he becomes a member of the Magna Team which hosted house parties at various clubs on a global level. Since the winter of 1997, Dim Pap co-operated with Magna in clubs such as Kingsize, +Soda, Paradizzio, Macumba e.t.c During the summer of 1999 he went to Aghia Napa (Cyprus) to perform and host the Twisted UK based mobile parties.

Born and raised in Athens, Greece Johnn’s first exposure to music started at a very young age. His passion for music and appetite for several genres such as soul, funk, rock and reggae have all played a significant role and inspire him to this day.
At 15 years of age, the bug of house music caught on, but it wasn’t until he moved to London for his MA in Interactive Media where he experienced Lond
on’s nightlife, visiting the best clubs, major festivals and traveled to the Mecca of house music, Ibiza, that he realized music was going to be an important part of his life.
Music has always motivated me to create and enjoy life. It makes people dance, smile and love. I want to share this passion with others.
Johnn B Jr. tested his first set out of the bedroom on the decks of Kabaret Prophecy (Soho, London) in 2006. For the next 2 years he played at several clubs in London beginning his first touch with the audience on the dance floor.
In 2008, Johnn returned to Greece and decided to share his passion for music and bring his experiences to Athens.
Afternoon parties at Precious Club (Kolonaki) were followed by collaborations with DJ Pascal at Boutique (Athens) and DJ Akylla & Christos Z at Messiah Rebirth. The 3 established DJs and top names in the Greek house scene, all taught him a lot about playing for different crowds.
Blending just enough familiar songs to rope in the crowd, and balancing bold, lesser-known house tracks to educate them, Johnn B Jr. maintains the dance floor fun with his infectious energy.
His residency at Dybbuk in 2009 gave birth to one of the most successful parties, One Night Stand which have since moved to Mamacas every summer.
Johnn B Jr. is also one of the resident DJs of the Sex & the City parties, the most successful hotel events, which continue to be hosted at some of most luxury hotels in Greece – Cavo Tagoo, King George, Hilton – till this day.
2010 was a milestone in Johnn B Jr. music career, beginning with his exclusive collaboration with Tony Loreto and Master Kev. His sets moved across borders to New York where he played at Cielo with Master Kev, followed by Fashion shows in Geneva and parties at luxury hotels in Perugia, Italy.
In 2012, Johnn started creating remixes and undertaking piano lessons. The past year Johnn has made 15 remixes, some with Tony Loreto, and has already begun creating his own original productions.
For the past 2 years Johnn B Jr. is a resident DJ at Animal Club (Athens) and continues to travel the globe spreading his love for house music every step of the way.
