Jon Hussey is DJing since the early nineties, kick-starting at the infamous Planet Dub night on Sir John Rogerson's Quay (Columbia Mills / Waterfront), Dublin.

In '99 Jon was among the first group from Ireland to qualify for the Red Bull Music Academy which was held in Berlin. Describing it as one of the most compelling and influential experiences in his long career where he spent invaluable time with many of the industries top DJs and Producers instilling even further his deep love for electronic music and DJing. Over the past decade he has kept this passion nurtured by being continuously involved in similar projects and innovations and most recently participated at the pioneering PLUG “Plug European Electronic Music Conference” in Berlin. This project was a melting pot of young and innovative artists, producers and intellects of electronic music from nine countries. Jon along with his colleague Sunil Sharpe organised a group of young rising Irish DJs and producers to participate at this Electronic Music Exchange affording them a unique experience as well as giving them a platform to express their individual talents and to also represent their country.

Release notes from the UK's online electronic music website Boomkat here...http://Boomkat.com/vinyl/455549-tricaustic-caustiphobic-pressure-ep - captures the essence of the EP by affirming “Tricaustic is the promising new production duo of Dublin DJs, Sunil Sharpe and Jon Hussey. They debut on Komisch with three stoically darkside Techno killers belying many years of dancefloor knowledge and finely honed instincts”.
Recently the national radio station (2FM) were quoted in their Late Night Sessions Blog as stating that “Jon Hussey is one of the longest serving true purveyors of Techno in Ireland, running nights in the early days of Dublin's dance scene, when techno to most people meant U96 or 2 Unlimited. Consistently one of the best DJs around, Jon never lets the side down” giving a rare insight into Jon's personality as a DJ!
