*** LIMITED COPIES OF THE ALBUM TO GIVE AWAY ON THE NIGHT PLUS EXCLUSIVE MIX CD'S T-SHIRTS AND OTHER JON O'BIR MERCHANDISE ***
After a storming performance from one of the scenes freshest up and comers this months instalment brings us a DJ who has firmly established himself as a major player in the trance game, fresh off the release of his new album...
Jon’s life changed back in September 2002 when he won a DJ competition for Passion and M8 magazine, beating 300 other aspiring DJs. Godskitchen soon offered Jon a residency and the prospect of a fledging career as Britain’s next DJ sensation.
During his residency at Godskitchen, Jon gained respect from DJs and clubbers for his flawless warm up and energetic peak time sets. He showed how diverse his resident skills were by warming up for Sasha, Tiesto, Paul van Dyk and many more big name acts. He also kept the dance floor rocking, playing after these A-list DJs. Playing at Air and other huge Godskitchen events, such as Global Gathering, other clubs and other big events soon filled up Jon’s diary across international venues in U.S.A, Asia and Europe.
Jon has been as hot in the studio as he has been on the DJcircuit. 2010 was a very successful year for O’Bir’s productions. ‘Out of Touch’, ‘Never Enough’ ‘Stringer’ and ‘Found A Way’ all delivered with plays from all the top jocks and two highly acclaimed Beatport Trance number 1s in ‘Never Enough’ and ‘Found A Way’, the latter being included in Armin van Buuren’s top 10 tracks of 2010.
2011 has seen Jon locked away in the studio working on the follow up to his successful debut album “From Within” and follows on from where ‘From Within’ left off and packs a bigger punch. A combination of uplifting, driving and vocal trance at its best. The album is set for worldwide release on Liquid Records (Spinnin) on 28th November. 2011 has also seen Jon announce the launch of his brand new label Infinity Records..
Paul van Dyk:
“Jon O’Bir is without doubt one of the most exciting producers in the world today. A major up & coming talent that has developed within the shortest time through his highly acclaimed, cutting-edge productions and sets into a leader of the next generation’s DJs and producers. His music is on the spot with warm, beautiful and captivating melodies, reflecting his passion and enthusiasm for electronic dance music. Jon’s inspired productions are becoming a standard for the best in melodic, electronic dance music and guarantee a bright future for this young and promising talent. “
