He has that innate talent to acutely read a crowd to feel what is going down. Equally he’s able to change it up and drop the anticipated & unexpected creating a vibe at a moments notice. It’s this, that makes his sets stick in the memory banks of many a raver.
His musical passion throughout 2018 has been met with high expectation. A new generation of ravers who have listened to his music and mixes know the legend DJ Ron.
Ron spent the 90’s establishing himself as one of the most prolific and regarded DJs in the jungle and dnb scenes. His classic London Some’ting label kicked off with the timeless jungle anthem ‘Worries In the Dance’ and later gave a home to Ron’s own regularly renowned roller ‘Crackman‘. In the 2000’s Ron was focusing his work in Film & TVas well as his roll as head of TV Production at Rinse FM‘s TV division.
“I never lost my passion or love for the music I helped create. I just wanted to focus my creative energy in a different direction, that direction for me was film which I’ve always had a strong passion towards.”
