JON DASILVA

Tickets - https://secretdisco.live/home/sd6/
HACIENDA MANCHESTER
With a career spanning three decades, which began in what many consider to be the birthplace of the British and Techno music scene and the UK’s music mecca, Fac 51 The Hacienda, and a busy international schedule that shows no sign of abating, few of today’s DJs can boast a pedigree like Jon Dasilva, who was recently voted in at #25 in Iconic Magazine reader’s poll of the “All-Time Top 50 DJs”. The Hacienda in Manchester, circa 1988, was a special place – a convergence of post-modern architecture, cutting edge music and out-there youth culture. It was home to Factory Records (arguably the best record label of the decade), and some of the greatest bands for decades to come, including New Order, the Happy Mondays and the Stone Roses. It was also home to three DJs – Jon Dasilva, Mike Pickering and Graeme Park – who in the words of the great Tony Wilson of Factory Records “pissed petrol on the fire”, sound-tracking the whole affair with a freshness of attitude that launched many clubs… and even more DJs. You’ve probably read the books, seen the films, bought the albums, and yes, worn the T-shirts! Considered to be Hacienda’s most singular resident DJ, Jon Dasilva was fresh to the scene in ’87, finding DJ inspiration in the House and Disco DJs of deepest New York and Chicago, amidst a sea of influences from Bowie to Dub Reggae to Kosmische Musik to Disco. His broad musical tastes and ability to work so many genres into proper dance floor action mark Dasilva out as specialist deck-master, taking his cues from the greats that inspired him, including Francois Kevorkian, Ron Hardy, Derrick May and L’il Louis.
