Biography

Jon Glover – DJ man.

Est. 1996, for your listening pleasure.

“First and foremost, he does it for the LOVE of music and DJing (fees and gratuitous favours come a close 2nd)”.

Part-time club DJ, full-time music nerd. Fresh outta semi-retirement. Re-establishing as a local hero. Back for 2010, gigging near and far to inflict my tastes on the youngsters and oldsters alike.

Big fan of old hip hop beats, funky house, disco, cheesy but glourious odd stuff, soul, funk, grimey breakbeats, drum & bass and tough driving banging cuts. Passion for obtaining copies (mostly digitally nowadays) of all those awesome party hardy gems my crowd have probably forgotten about, and surprising them by dropping them in all the right places.

Previous residencies and guest gigs at various clubs in London, South East of England (and occasionally overseas) including The Source Bar, The Loft, Davinchi’s/Liquid Lounge, The Base (East Sussex), Quigleys, The Gallery, V Bar, The River Bar, hosted for Juice / Flava FM (until it’s demise) and played for clients at a number of corporate events and large parties including Ginger Productions, Pure, Exclusive Events, SP Promotions and Feeling Funky at some tasty London venues such as The Grosvenor Hotel, Park Lane, Spitalfields Market, The Mermaid Theatre and The Worx in Fulham. My music has taken me as far as Tenerife and a one-off set at Bar M, Ibiza. My most recent sets have been with various music bars including Ethos and Drakes in Maidstone and hired for private parties.

Ex-vinyl junkie but still love my wax. Traktor Scratch user, Vestax deck abuser. Exploring the creative world of controller DJing and DVS (it’s the future, and it’s here peeps. NB: DJs – you can’t download skills).

Production success extends to one studio produced track cut as a dubplate for an unsolicited offer to Paul Oakenfold during a local gig (unsurprisingly we heard nothing, it probably got dropped and shattered!). I stick to personal re-edits and tool tracks.

Embracing early-Thirtydom, and now a new Dad, feeling younger than ever. Here’s to continuing paying my dues as working deej.
