    When words & sounds collide. This is the original Johnny Dangerous. He 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 band 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 & 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 jOHNNYDANGEROUs atomic bomb "Problem 13 (I Beat That Bitch 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 acapellas 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.

"THE RICHARD LONG THEORY" Release Date: November, 2018 Songs: 22 Tracks Foremost Poets aka Johnny Dangerous pays homage to a man who is no myth. From the mid 70s to now, Richard Long's award winning sound theory makes a breathtaking impact on the loud speaker experience. Richard's unprecedented soundsystem not only changed music, but it changed how and why music is made. Music makers young and old, unmastered demos, mastered promos foreign & domestic would test their music on Richard Long's Soundsystem to see if their final mix held up to expectation. Richard Long made music, made careers, made legends, made memories, made magic & just made sense. The Foremost Poets holds high praise to one of the most unsung scientist in music history with this upcoming album.
