John Cansalsa

Ambient & Electronica Music Producer



45 Years of being stuck in the 80's

and now for something almost normal

John has been a writer, musician, sound engineer, producer and active ghostwriter of electronic music since 1979, releasing a rare minimal-wave record in 1983 with Shazam and publishing Electronica under many psudonyms & freelance projects over the last 45 Years

He has never limited himself to any specific genre because he is comfortable creating any type of soundscape electronically. 

Since semi-retiring to look after his family in 2018  John can now spend more time on his own music portfolio and is now self publishing as Cansalsa.  John is also an avid mentor for new talent under his new publishing umbrella of Cansalsa Music

Recent Cansalsa projects have included a 14 track album of very experimetal Retro-Salsa-Electronica.

One such track "Salsa" has also been re-mixed in collaboration with one of the Masters and Champions of Traditional Salsa from Venezuela - Nestor Pacheco -  adding his unique style of Vocals & Percussion - creating a Fusion of Electronica & Traditional Salsa

There is also some light-hearted acid jazz-etronica, a quasi-sub-genre John would like to explore more as an album of works together with potentially yet more 80's retro minimal-wave electronica too. 

More recently though John has reverted back to some almost 'Mainstream Friendly Relaxation & Chill-Out ' Electronic projects whilst simultaneously on the lookout for a talented lyricist & vocalist collaborator that has the vision to Fuse some on-trend topline life into some of his earliest Electronica tracks.
