A life spent working with & designing records has moulded a very singular taste and an ability to find common threads in an exceptionally wide variety of music – Jon’s sets are much more about creating moods where people can lose themselves than playing any one genre or tempo.

The Manchester native’s work as a DJ is, in a way, a product of the hedonistic pop-cultural mish-mash of the Rainy City – raw post-punk & industrial, Chicago house, various left-field strains of UK / Jamaican sound system culture and unclassifiable rarities exist together in unique and diverse sets.

2016, also saw Jon co-curate & design Equiknoxx Music’s ‘Bird Sound Power’ (& follow up LP ‘Colon Man’) with Demdike Stare on their DDS imprint. These, along with his mixes, have earned him plaudits from Boomkat, Resident Advisor, Fact Magazine, and love from acts like Joy Orbison, JD Twitch, Drew McDowall (Coil) & more.

Jon’s residencies include Plastic People, Fabric, Hoya Hoya, Soup Kitchen, & La Cheetah + recent times have seen him appearing at Dekmantel Selectors, Atonal, Meakusma, Dimensions, De School, Salon Des Amateurs & Golden Pudel – 2019 also saw cassette releases for Trilogy Tapes & Cav Empt.

Jon has a 2 hour monthly NTS show called Peking Spring.
