The Foremost Poets have been reshaping dance, funk and the spoken word. Johnny is Philadelphia born, but raised in Newark, New Jersey. He began his love for music as a jazz band drum major in Arts High School & the Barringer High School in the 1980's. 

He began his career as a resident DJ at Club America from 1989-1990, alongside DJs Naeem Johnson, DJ Camacho, Carlton Rosebure, DJ Slim, Messy Marv (Virginia), Kerri Chandler (The Great) & many others from Jersey. With many House Music greats, Johnny is one of the original 1990 inventors of the Deep House sound through his own blend of future funk & spoken word. 

His career is replete with diversity, dropping a catalog of underground singles under two different names. In 1990, he released his first underground Foremost Poets single "Reasons To Be Dismal?" on Nu Groove/ SBK Records. A few years later, with no promotion, he dropped the Johnny Dangerous atomic bomb "Problem 13 (I Beat That With A Bat)" (1993). In 1998, Johnny recorded "MoonRaker" on Sound-Men On Wax (SOW) Records. This record crossed over into many styles of electronic dance music and can be heard in big rooms, festivals and local venues worldwide. All DJs from David Guetta to Funk Master Flex use Johnny’s vocal acapella as "DJ tools”. 

Known for various productions and remixes, his vocals are most frequently sampled and his sound is emulated worldwide. "There may be many Johnny Dangerous', but there's only one Foremost Poets”.
