JON DASILVA – 10TH DECEMBER – LEEDS

~JON DASILVA~

Latest Mix. https://www.mixcloud.com/jondasilva/hallo-halo-look-at-the-owl-dj-mix-2014/

Although now holed up somewhere on the Stockholm archipelago, the Hacienda original hasn’t forgotten his Acid House roots, whether he is pulling to together his expansive DJ sets of Jackin’ Techno and Deep House or producing and remixing to his heart’s content out there amongst the Swedish islands…You can still hear the excitement of those heady, legendary days…

His string of cutting edge remixes and productions spans more than two decades on labels including Get Physical, Ellum Audio, Rush Hour, Soma, Mute, Deconstruction, Better Days, Eskimo and a couple of years ago he was awarded “Best House Track 2012-13” at The International Dance Awards for “Love Somebody Else” by Maceo Plex and Jon Dasilva (feat. Joi Cardwell). Now, Hallo Halo, his Anglo Swedish project with Jonas Nilsson, has more releases up and coming plus a number of solo projects …

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 Jackin’ Techno  and Acid House as well as his keen nose for sniffing out the most interesting modern producers have been so clearly evident.…Jon hasn’t lost his “Acid House Legend” (Jockey Slut Magazine) status and, no doubt, never will…

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.”
