Guest DJ

ROSS JONES

Ross has been DJing in the London scene for a decade and a half now – his gigs have included Fire, The RVT, Barcode Soho, East Bloc, Hot Fuzz and (of course) our legendary 2015 London Pride party at Corsica Studios. He has held residencies at The Kings Arms and Eagle London and has played a number of festivals, including Summer Rites, Out On The Dock, Frost Fest and Brighton Pride.

 

Recently, he is best known for his residency at super-club, BRÜT, where he rips the decks up every month to a sea of sweaty topless bears. Ross also represented BRÜT at Kluster, in Madrid!

 

His musical influences are the shadier side of electronic pop, acid house, U.S. house, as well as some harder sounds. Let’s be honest, he’s a complete pop tart. Depeche Mode and Pet Shop Boys have always been his favourite bands, together with Scritti Politti, Propaganda, Frankie Goes To Hollywood and Tears For Fears. His guilty pleasure has to be PWL (Pete Waterman Limited, most famous for being the home of hit record producers Stock, Aitken, and Waterman) and Hi-Energy. He’s a sucker for a cow bell!

 

In the late 80s and early 90s he got into dance music and house. He loves S’Express, David Morales, Todd Terry, Farley & Heller, Steve “Silk” Hurley but also the harder, tougher sounds which the club Trade pioneered. Trade and the original Beyond club have shaped his taste and style today: tuff’n’funky!

 

His current DJ sets are a wicked mix of house, tech, progressive and deep house. He’s very bass-line driven. At the moment, a lot of his sound has the distinct old-skool flavour. There’s some really good tracks around with a late 80s vibe and acid house bass-lines, samples and of course the iconic 303 sound. He also enjoys playing tracks with a deeper groove.
