JON RUNDELL joins Sy Chan & Friends this Saturday 11pm – 1am !!


The Sy Chan & Friends show showcases electronic artists from all over the globe as well as featuring up coming talent. This Saturday, Sy brings a true techno DJ/Producer onto this weeks show….JON RUNDELL.

 

Sy adds, “I have admired Jon for many years and fully respect him as a DJ, and an artist. This week will truly be a great show featuring music from house right through to techno, with many promo tracks to feature”.

 

JON RUNDELL

 

I think Jon’s a jewel in the crown. He’s really great with the crowd and his music. He’s been a great support to me. Put him in front of 30,000 people and he really goes for it. He naturally warms the crowds up. We always discuss what we’ll both be playing and he goes out there and does it. At the moment he’s better than most top DJs I could mention.” Carl Cox, March 2007.

 

Jon has never been a follower. Very much his own man, he has never being swayed by trends or fashions. Preferring instead to challenge and ask questions of what’s going on around him, Jon’s output has remained unique and interesting right from the start. Experimental at times, but always matured and versatile, he has remained a highly consistent producer and DJ.

 

Jon has just stuck to playing and signing good music that he truly believes in throughout his career. He has stuck to his guns – a decision that is now working in his favour, enabling him to play to more and more people each year.

 

“I don’t want to ram it down people’s necks in a contrived way. I like the music to do the talking and connect with people there and then. When I get the chance to play, I just make sure people have a great time as well as a little bit of education.
