2013 World DMC Online Champion

-Jon1st could be best described as a 'DJ's DJ': a selector able to simultaneously capture a crowd with his upbeat selection of tracks crossing numerous tempos and styles across the alternative bass music spectrum while incorporating technical skills developed in his background as a World-DMC-title-winning-turntablist without breaking the flow of his mixes.

-His guest mixes have been featured on Ninja Tune's legendary Solid Steel podcast, Kutmah's Sketchbook Radio show on NTS, Rita Maia's Sine of The Time show on Resonance FM, Last Japan and Blackwax's Circadian Rhythms show on NTS, Mixology on ControRadio in Italy, Vice's Noisey website and Soundcrash's podcast for Soundwave Festival. He has also recently recorded promo mixes for the latest EP by EAN (Cosmic Bridge/Original Cultures/Various Production) on the Original Cultures label and for Tehbis' recent EP on Groovement.

"Jon1st killed it: the best DJ I've seen play for ages, and I've played with everyone from Diplo, Duck Sauce, Grandmaster Flash, Rev Run, Z-Trip, Craze, Madlib, Just Blaze, Premier, Skream, Bassnectar, Lil Louis Vega, Ali Shaheed Muhamed, Laurent Garnier, Shadow, Flying Lotus, Mary Ann Hobbs, Gilles Peterson...Jon is sick on the decks. He smashed it! One of the best nights out for ages. " - DJ Vadim (Ninja Tune/BBE)

"I think it's very important to give props where they are due and recognise when someone raises the bar. Jon1st's 2013 DMC routine is one of the most exciting battle routines i've seen in perhaps the last 10 years. Meticulous attention to detail, great variety of technique, dope musical choice: a creative and tasteful use of technology and FUNK." - DJ Woody (ITF/Vestax World Champion)

"Probably the best DJ I have ever seen. Speechless." - Blackwax (Tube10/Liminal Sounds)

-In the last two years alone he has played at established festivals such as Bestival, The Big Chill, The Edinburgh Festival, Shambala, Soundwave Croatia and Strawberry Fields and has previously been booked to open up for acts such as Daedalus, MF DOOM, Bonobo, Mosca, DJ Vadim, Africa Hitech, Om Unit, Qbert, DJ Craze, Araabmusik, LV, Lord Finesse, Mala, The Herbaliser, DJ Format, Badbadnotgood, ARP101, Spectrasoul, Mickey Pearce, Debruit, Tokimonsta, Alexander Nut, Luke Vibert, Kidkanevil, Lorn, Illum Sphere, Kromestar, Doc Daneeka, Ghost Mutt, Mr Thing, Kutmah, Gang Colours, Flako, The Nextmen, Free The Robots, DJ Woody, Aries, Mike Gao, Randomer, Two Inch Punch, Blue Daisy, Reeps One, DJ Switch, Buddy Peace, Fingathing, Sweatson Klank...
