Eskimo – The Popcorn
Eskimo (John Ford) is an English Psychedelic Trance DJ and producer, son of John Ford (also known as John Phantasm and owner of Phantasm Records).
Inspired by his father John Phantasm (and consequently the music he heard playing at home when he was young), Eskimo started producing his own music in the studio from the age of 9 but did not begin DJing worldwide until he was 13. Wrapped up in the life of DJing, Eskimo did not return to the studio until he was 15, which was when he ‘wanted to get back into the producing part of it since the music was getting more technical’. Not until then did he start producing under the name of Eskimo. The name was chosen because it bears no connection ‘to the product’. At aged 17 he released his first debut album “Can You Pick Me Up”.
Eskimo’s tunes begin to show up in the sets of psy trance DJs across the globe. By the time he performed his first live set, his repertoire had trebled. His many remixes from this time – some still unreleased due to copyright wrangles – included Infected Mushroom and Skazi, but it was his unofficial remix of The Prodigy “Voodoo People” that was the most popular.
