Initially a party organisation from Belgium, De:tuned has become a record label for reanimating the sounds from electronic music’s early days. Run by Ruben Boons and Bert Hermans.

Beltran is one of the more well respected artists in electronic music over the past 30 years. His early work on Carl Craig’s seminal Retroactive imprint sculpted a Detroit classic with hints of Derrick May, world music, and Jazz vibrations. He followed up in 1996 on label Peacefrog with arguably one of the most sought after techno classics “Ten Days of Blue,” which is still John’s most successfully licensed music with songs like “Collage of Dreams” being used in the Miramax film Human Traffic and the HBO hit Six Feet Under. His next project was entitled “The Cry” under the Placid Angles guise which Mixmaster Morris charted as one of his favourite albums ever. Shortly after, the album “Moving On Through” was released on Apollo as well as the “Indio” album under the same name for Derrick May’s Transmat label.

After focusing on techno and ambient music for the better part of the 1990’s, the 2000’s saw John evolving into making many different styles including 2 Latin albums for Ubiquity records and a drum and bass track for LTJ Bukem’s heralded Earth series compilations. John’s love for real instrumentation has helped him not only be an in demand remixer but also an engineer and mixer. Naturally, John’s music works great with movies and TV which included creating the bumpers to and from commercial’s on the Oprah Winfrey’s show to various soundtracks. In 2012 John made a return to his trademark sound. He had a busy run on Delsin records with 3 full albums and landed on the Belgian De:tuned label with “Moth”, the long-awaited follow-up album to his widely acclaimed classic 90s masterpiece ‘Ten Days of Blue’. The last few years John has focused on making EP’s on some strong new labels making a name for themselves showing John’s amazing music to a whole new audience. 2020 saw John do his first full major soundtrack with the sci-fi movie ‘Doors’ to wide acclaim.
