About

Jon Dasilva is a DJ/Producer based in Stockholm, Sweden

Hallo Halo is Jon Dasilva and Jonas Nilsson

Awarded "Best House Track 2012-13" at The International Dance Awards for "Love Somebody Else" by Jon Dasilva and Maceo Plex feat. Joi Cardwell

Releases on labels including Ellum Audio, Rush Hour, Soma, Eskimo and Get Physical

Mercurial DJ/ Producer, Jon Dasilva was co conspirator in defining the music policy of the seminal House club The Hacienda during acid house era and was slap bang at the centre of the early days of UK House/Techno music scene. Seminal and adventurous are also adjectives often associated with this bold producer. He has a string of cutting edge productions to his name spanning two decades on labels including Ellum Audio, Rush Hour, Soma, Mute, Deconstruction, Eskimo, Is It Balearic, and has recently been awarded "Best House Track 2012-13" at The International Dance Awards for "Love Somebody Else" by Jon Dasilva and Maceo Plex (feat. Joi Cardwell).

Dasilva's wide musical tastes and ability to work these genres into proper dance floor action also mark him out as specialist deck-master, taking his cues from the legends that inspired him, the likes of Francois Kevorkian and Ron Hardy. Considered an influence on a whole generation of DJ's from Balearic Legend, DJ Moonboots to the ubiquitous star, Sasha, Jon has nevertheless retained a freshness of approach as displayed in his recent DJ mixes where his penchant for the varied shades of techno and house as well as his keen nose for sniffing out the most interesting modern producers have been so clearly evident.

SASHA On Dasilva:

“Well Jon to me was the most influential DJ in my career really. He
showed me the way. Not only did he give me my first breaks, my
first proper, proper breaks, he taught me how to build DJ sets. I
used to go and watch him play from 9pm and follow the whole
night and listening to the way he crafted his DJ sets and his use of
accapellas and sound effects was just mind-blowing. He was so
ahead of the game. I don’t think there’s another more influential
person on my DJing career really.”
