Biography

There is more than one artist known by the name “Chevron”.

1) Chevron is the electronic alter ego of Jonathan Valentine. Hailing from Blackpool in the UK, he began making rave and techno from an early age, at school and college. There he fell in love with the sounds of Mike Paradinas’ well-regarded label, Planet Mu. In 2003 Planet Mu released his first 7” “Swimmin’ Lessons”. Further short releases on Planet Mu followed in 2004 as well as a European tour with Ceephax Acid Crew. He played many shows, including the legendary Kraked Squat Party, with artists such as Venetian Snares and Shitmat. Since 2003, he has lived in Brighton with Shitmat, who is also boss of Wrong Music Records.

Chevron’s highly anticipated debut album “Everything’s Exactly The Same” was released on Valentines Day in 2005, to outstanding reviews and extensive radio play. “Crimson” on US label Terminal Dusk also featured a track. He performed in the Overkill tent at UK dance festival “The Glade”. In 2006 Chevron appeared on the “Sacred Symbols of Mu” Mu sampler. Mike Paradinas and Chevron remixed Shitmat on the three track “Gary’s Gruesome Garage” EP. The summer saw three memorable performances at “The Glade” festival and a subsequent release on the first Overkill compilation featured The Bug, Exile and Vex’d. Chevron finally released “Rave Like A Bastard” as “Chevvers”; a split 12” with Lancastrian speedcore producer Oen-Flux. Several samplers followed.
