Eric Jordan's career as a DJ first began in 1997, at the peak of Rave culture in America. Formerly known as DJ Sunrise, Jordan developed a small local following, becoming known for his early morning sets at events in Southern California. Eventually, Jordan released three mixtapes which quickly spread through the underground; "In Through the E-Tunnel", "SpeakerWall Science" and a rare ambient mix entitled "The Ride Home".
In 1999, Jordan's DJ career took a backseat to a rising reputation as an interactive designer for the design firm 2Advanced Studios, but his passion for DJing never faded. Jordan played small clubs and events here and there until the time was right to reemerge with a refined sound in 2004; a sharp mixture of Progressive House and Progressive Trance that was unable to be categorized. During this time, Jordan took up production and began writing progressive tracks and developed a close relationship with Christopher Lawrence, a DJ whom he had been inspired by in the late 90's.
Unhappy with the current state of the rave scene, Jordan took matters into his own hands, and held an event called "Neverrain" and brought in his largest influences, DJ's Christopher Lawrence, Jason Blakemore (Formerly DJ Trance), and D:Fuse to headline the event, with Jordan opening up the evening on the turntables. This event was the springboard for Jordan to return to mixing, and led to various performances at "FLO", a weekly event in downtown Laguna Beach, Orange County. Desiring to spread his sound to more people, Jordan branched out and evolved his mixing style into something people really seem to respond to. In November of 2005, Jordan started a monthly mix blog titled Neverrain Recordings, where he began releasing hour-long mix sets for free on the 1st of every month. Since the birth of Neverrain.com, Jordan has gained a significant following of dedicated listeners who share the same love for progressive music.
Eric Jordan recently appeared as a guest DJ on Christopher Lawrence's Rush Hour radio show, broadcast on the Digitally Imported trance channel (www.di.fm) as well as FM stations around the world.
Today, Eric Jordan is quickly becoming recognized as a reputable progressive trance/house DJ/Producer, who has appeared at the turntables along-side some of the most legendary DJs in the industry.
