Jon Dasilva (The Haçienda / Manchester)


Mercurial DJ/Producer, Jon Dasilva, in many ways came to define the music policy of The Haçienda (New Orders's legendary club) during the rise of British acid house era and was slap bang at the centre of the early days of UK House/Techno music. From these auspicious beginnings he has always been regarded as an adventurous DJ, a view aided in no small part by his mixing expertise and programming skills.

He toured the US with New Order and was part of The Haçienda’s 1990 American Tour, “The United States Of Hacienda”. It was his residency at legendary acid house night, “Hot” that cemented his reputation. The biggest night at The Haçienda during The Second Summer Of Love. Dasilva’s grasp of the Chicago house scene, coupled with his extensive record collection made “Hot” a national event for the early acid house scene and the style press. Hot attendees and alumni include Sasha, Slam, James Barton, James Baillie and Massive Attack, with Sasha remarking that Jon's style at Hot influenced him more than any other DJ.

Retaining the anything goes spirit and ideals of Acid House; Jon’s open-minded sensibilities have been sharpened by his involvement with a number of band projects including his own band The Virgo Mechanically Replayed, whose album, "Factory Fatigue", was released on Hacienda Recordings in November 2011.

His wide musical tastes and ability to work many genres into proper dance floor action marks him out as specialist deck-master, taking his cues from the legends that inspired him, the likes of Francois Kevorkian and Ron Hardy.






Erobique (International Pony / Hamburg)


Carsten Meyer aka Erobique hails from Saerbeck/Westfalen in picturesque Muensterland and was already reciting Beatles and disco hits on the piano at the tender age of ten. He played his way through just about every ska and soul band in Muenster and quite soon discovered that lightweight midi keyboards just weren’t his thing at all. So after obtaining his diploma at the school of heavy keyboards and e-pianos, he threw himself into the world of contemporary nocturnal entertainment. With the addition of a sequencer, he got the old keyboards and the young girls dancing away. 1998, the nutters from Fischmob invited him to accompany them on tour. And it was during this tour that the foundation stone for the band ‘International Pony’ was laid – in a Berlin hotel room with Cosmic DJ and DJ Koze. Back home in Westfalen, our young jack-of-all-trades dumped his training position at a bank and the course in technical drawing he was running at a local evening school and moved up to the city that was once the flower-growing capital of Germany, Hamburg.

There’s one thing you can be sure of with Carsten. He throws a wild, dancing disco party with a good portion of humour and, not forgetting, a touch of romance. In August 2002, the long-awaited debut album from International Pony ‘We love music’ (Columbia) was released and on their subsequent European tour, they left a trail of happy club-goers behind them. And still, Carsten didn’t want to miss out on the fun he’d had with his Fender Rhodes and his rhythm box full of sexy disco loops, boogieing some of the hottest parties in the Republic. Because – and that’s what we mustn’t forget – when Carsten gets down, dancing behind his keyboards, then for him that’s like praying – in a church of many colours filled with people going mad.
