Aman that needs little introduction, a skilled DJ, successful producer and highly accomplished musician and performer, combine these with a sharp mix of wicked personality, positive attitude and awesome passion (and might we add; dashing good looks) ... we give you… Jon Fitz
It was obvious from an early age that Jon's destiny lay within the world of music. In his early teens his love for the bass guitar began, and while living the 'Madchester' house scene he honed his talent. A true 24hr party king, his love of music soon saw him step behind the decks, and a natural DJ and performer was born.
Now, not only is Jon a DJ in his own right, with a relentless schedule of gigs in the UK and abroad, with notable appearances at Space and Pacha Ibiza, Godskitchen, Gatecrasher, Miss Moneypennys, Creamfields, V festival and Glastonbury, he’s also an established bass player touring the world with the Bodyrockers, highlight of which being the closing ceremony for the Melbourne Commonwealth Games, plus adding his writing skills to their album. Jon’s also a backing vocalist and singer/ songwriter with a number of A listed hits in his repertoire, and last but certainly not least, he’s one half of chart topping house duo HERD&FITZ.
Nominated as best breakthrough producer in the 2006 House Music Awards, his creative talents have seen him remix for Robbie Rivera, Toolroom and Ministry of Sound. Jon’s Herd & Fitz anthem “Just Can’t Get Enough hit Top 10 in the UK charts, while his credible floor filling house tracks and remixes rocked dancefloors around the world.
2007 saw residencies for Pukka Up Ibiza and Castle Club Cyprus while “You’ll See Me” was set for major release after being hammered around the clubs and bars of the white isle, throughout the summer season. Internationally Jon appeared in Oslo, Malta, Portugal, Poland and Russia and was asked to mix the Subliminal Sunsets album for Erick Morillo, which received great response and accolade.
Jon's recently had a time out to concentrate on teaching at music college for a two-year period and now is back in the studio and behind the decks … doing what he does best.
Forthcoming tracks set for summer release; For Me, Addiction and Nasty Tree, which has already had regular floor play at Space, Pacha, and Amnesia and has garnered major support from Sandy Rivera who's been dropping it into every single set he played end of last year, and has been a firm favorite on many a radio show's set list, this track certainly has the potential to be a hot summer Ibiza anthem!
Other projects include the release of an album titled 'Unclubbed', reworked acoustic chill out/funk versions of classic house tracks rearranged and re-sung with totally new sounds, chord arrangements and great new vocalists.
Also, the start of a new band called The Koo Zooz, a joint production with the ladies of Sweet Female Attitude Leanne brown and Catherine Cassidy, which has taken influence from Massive Attack, Zero7, Soul II Soul, fused, cross over cool track’s, the album due for signing later in the year.
Other recent tracks have been signed to Ministry, Monkey Beats, Jfunk, Gfab and Hardphaze, the most recent was Hesitate a club re-work of the Tom Novy classic, smashing every dance floor and gaining high accolade from big industry heavyweight.
