Biography

“This is how trance is meant to be: beautiful bosh that takes you to another place” Mixmag feature February 2003.

A lot can happen in 12 months, for Jon O’Bir, 2002 started off with him mixing in his bedroom like thousands of others dreaming of the big time, but as the hours counted down to 2003 his dream came true and he was warming up the crowd at U.K. super club, Godskitchen. It all started back in September 2002, when he entered a DJ competition for Passion and M8 magazine along with 300 other hopeful DJ’s. He won. He was then offered the chance to play for Motion in Derby and also to show off his talents on the Internet radio station, BPM. With his style of progressive/uplifting trance and expertly blended mixes, Godskitchen soon noticed his potential. They were looking for a new young DJ to offer a residency to and the prospect of a fledging career as Britain’s next DJ sensation. “It is unbelievable! I’ve loved mixing since I bought my first set of decks two years ago and now I get to do it in clubs all over the country for thousands of people” – Jon O’Bir, Mixmag 2003. When Fergie heard about all the interest in Jon, he asked him to join him on his Radio 1 show. His half hour set, live all around the world went down a storm and Fergie was astounded by his support via emails and message boards. He could envisage big things for Jon. Fergie has been right behind Jon and included him in his ‘Fergies Fledglings’ feature on his radio 1 website.
