12th Planet, born John Dadzie,[[|]] grew up in Los Angeles and was first introduced to the electronic music scene in high school when he regularly attended raves and jungle parties. After forming Imperial Recordings with DJ Lith, he launched his production skills on his own terms, originally producing drum and bass under the alias Infiltrata.
