What I love about DJing is that there is always more to discover, learn and fall in love with.”

Through his upfront track selection and technical ability, Jon1st has quickly built a reputation as a ‘DJ’s DJ’. His club sets see him effortlessly blend together influences from across the alternative electronic music spectrum, all the while incorporating breathtaking technical skills developed through his background as a World-DMC-title-winning turntablist (winner of the 2013 World DMC Online Championships).

Jon’s turntablist skills have recently seen him collaborate with Will LV (Brownswood/Hyperdub/Keysound) and EAN (Cosmic Bridge/Med School/ XL Records) as GOALS, 2016 DMC Online World Champion DJ Brace and fellow 20/20 artist Shield, as well as perform official scratch routines as part of promotional campaigns for a number of high profile acts including Ivy Lab & Alix Perez (Critical Music), Moresounds & Poirier (NiceUp! Records), Hyroglifics (Critical Music), NameBrandSound (Arena Yard Records), DJ Vadim (BBE Records), Kabuki (Vandal Records), 20/20 Records and Sam Binga & Deft (Critical Music), the latter also being incorporated into a track on Sam’s debut LP on Critical Music in 2015.

His club sets and mixes have also recently caught the attention of internationally renowned drum and bass/half time beats supergroup Ivy Lab, who, after he performed a guest club set for them in late 2014, swiftly made him a resident at their 20/20 club night in London in 2015. The club night has also given birth to a record label, which won the DJ Mag award for ‘Best Breakthrough Label’ in 2016.
