Jon Of The Pleased Wimmin
In 1997, Jon decided he’d had enough. He became disheartened by DJing at so many clubs that he wasn’t passionate about. In short, he craved something different. Jon ditched the drag and stopped running his Pleased night, deciding instead to concentrate on playing more eclectic sets at smaller clubs. One night whilst DJing at 93 Feet East with Jacques Lu Cont a few years later, Jon handed Wall of Sound’s head honcho, Mark Jones, a demo from behind the decks. Mark had been a regular at Pleased in the mid 90’s and knew Jon’s music well.
In 2001, Mark signed Jon up as a Wall of Sound DJ and artist under Jon’s new moniker, The Visitor. Last year, Jon moved away from London to Edinburgh. He now juggles his DJ schedule with running his own record label, Lovelife!, recording as the Velvet Mafia, and running his own fashion label, Pleased.
Jon returned to DJing and revived his alter-ego in 2012 and has since re-booted his Pleased nights in London at Dalston Superstore and his weekly Church of High Kicks night in Edinburgh. He toured Australia in 2014 and has played in Dubai and Ibiza in 2015 along with extensive guest spots all over the UK.
He will be releasing new singles in 2015 on the Kidology London label.
He was managed by Krissy Underdown.
