We catch up with international DJ and producer Jon Rundell ahead of his NYD performance at Tobacco Docks along with legendary Carl Cox, Hot Since 82 and plenty more. Read on to find out all about the defining moments in Jon's life that sparked his love for music. This is Jon Rundell's moment.
For Jon, it all started when he was 17 when he first heard Go by Moby at World Dance in Lydd Airport. "I was with school friends, we went because we were already listening to the music anyway at home, buying mixtapes of it. Plus, we knew a lot of people from all over Sussex and Kent that were going that we played football with. I went back a few times but then the rave scene slowed down as things moved more into clubs. It was always an experience due to the level of production that was put on. We began going to the clubs instead too as time passed and less and less raves were put on".
After that, he slowly became more and more interested in the music and scene. "It didn't change much to start with, I still played a lot of football seriously. But I did get engrossed in buying the music and having to find out absolutely everything I could about the producers, the DJ’s, the clubs, what was on and who was playing. And then eventually starting to get to know the promoters and pestering them to give me a go. Things didn't really start to become more serious until I moved to London and got caught up in the scene here, it’s taken over my whole life!".
