This heavy weight and legendary DJ is a force to be reckoned with. 2010 marks his eleventh year as resident at Ibiza's prestigious super-club 'Space' and his trademark up tempo, driving, electronic, pumping house style sees him spinning week in, week out at the worlds leading nightclubs. DJ appearances on every continent have given Jonathan a huge global and truly loyal fan base. He now sits comfortably and quite rightly amongst dance music's most elite DJs. Jon has compiled copious compilations working closely with high tech labels including Ministry, UMM, Destined, DJ Center and Klubstar to name a few.

Jon's own creation, his 'Ulybug' brand has been steadily expanding since it�s launch in 2008. The uber cool 'Ulybug' brand (logo is a red, yellow & green beetle with dreadlocks designed to represent strength & power) kicked off with parties & a clothing range that took Ibiza by storm.
