Calgary’s own Jon Delerious has been a staple in the Canadian West coast House music scene since his first ‘big’ gig in 1992. Since then his production talents have seen him grow into an internationally respected DJ and Producer.
His music ranges from smoked-out dubby house, down tempo to top-notch dance floor chuggers. He has been name-checked from diverse artists like Gilles Peterson through to Laurent Garnier. His style proves to appeal to a diverse and varied audience.
As a D.J. he has played at many shows, performing across Canada, as well as into the U.S.A. and Europe. His career DJ highlights include headlining with some of House music’s finest–including ‘Little’ Louie Vega, Carl Cox, Mark Farina, Kaskade, Ben Watt among many others. Jon’s full length album on Canada’s own Nordic Trax record label, No Warning, has received acclaim in such publications as XLR8R, exclaim and DJ Mag, as well as play throughout the world, charting particularly strong in the US, UK, Canada, France and Germany.
One thing is certain about Jon, he has carved out a place in DJ booth and in the studio that is completely his own. Jon Delerious continues to refine his skills as one of Canada’s leading electronic musical innovators.
“The trick with deep house is to keep it focused on the dancefloor. Too much of the genre falls into a soporific funk, just one step to the left of easy listening. Not the tunes made by Calgary’s Jon Delerious. Even on album opener “Glow”, which luxuriates in bass so deep it’s off the gauge, you can still imagine it rocking a tiny sweatbox of a club in New York, Tokyo or London. Clubs where people get off on house music shot through with sex, soul and 6am moments. For that’s what No Warning has in abundance – dubby beats, rinky-dink acid lines and dis(co)lated voices floating in and out of the mix. Deep house for the dancefloor? Now there’s an interesting concept.” BPM Magazine
