UE.35: Jon Delerious
Jon Delerious is something of an underground sensation. Born and raised in Calgary, Alberta, Jon has spent the best part of twenty years plying his trade in the deep house arena.
Ever since his first gig back in 1992, Jon has become a true staple within his hometown, through an impressive diligence for DJing and production. It’s perhaps only due to his not being from Detroit, Chicago or any other of those eulogised metropoles, that he’s less of a household name than one might expect. Nonetheless, he’s someone one can have no qualms calling a veteran.
His steady career has long been associated with Luke McKeehan’s Vancouver based Nordic Trax, one of Canada’s most consistent purveyors of house music right across the spectrum. This month, Jon releases the wide-spanning Forage EP, his fifth for the label – and that’s not even counting his 2004 internationally acclaimed full length No Warning.
From the chunky warehouse sound of the title track, to the disco-indebted ‘Cycles’ and the impossibly smooth ‘Sticky’, it’s an EP that covers a whole range of moods and grooves – quite an ambitious concept, if it weren’t done in such convincing style.
Kicking us off for 2016 with a proper bang, Jon drops a joyous, chunky, acid-tinged peak-time mix that almost says – why the hell were you worried about those January blues in the first place?!
