John Graham is a British music producer who is also known under the pseudonyms "Quivver" and "Space Manoeuvres". He was a former member of music production team Tilt.

History

John Graham began music production in the early 1990s. Originally, he produced and released several singles under the name "Skanna". Under the alias of "Quivver", he released "Saxy Lady" and "Twist & Shout" on A&M Records Lt. UK. Again under the Quivver name he released "Believe in Me" on Perfecto Records. Later, he joined Parks & Wilson as part of Tilt , who produced the top 20 hit "Invisible".

In 1999, Graham left Tilt to pursue a solo career. As Space Manoeuvres with Lea Kenny, he released the popular "Stage One" on Hooj Choons. Graham readopted his "Quivver" monicure to produce "One Last Time" and "She Does" on VC Recordings, a sublabel of Virgin Records. In 2001, he became a resident DJ at Twilo and released "Transport 5", the fifth entry in the Tranceport series on Kinetic Records. The next year he produced the follow up to "Stage One" with "Pluto Disko" under the name Space Manoeuvres. He also founded his own record label, Boz Boz Recordings, in 2003 as part of parent label Trust the DJ Records. In 2004, Boz Boz released Graham's single "Space Manoeuvres Part 3" under Quivver. The next year, Graham released his first album "Oid" on Lost Language under the moniker Space Manoeuvres.
