DJ – London,UK

Celebrated NTS resident and Londoner born and bred, Jon Rust has worked behind the scenes in the UK’s bustling underground for the best part of a decade, helping inform and promote some of it’s fiercest musical assets.

It was while working at legendary nightspot Plastic People Rust was able to absorb from the inside, the broad spectrum of the legendary club’s programming: not just the intense bass music of FWD>>, but the eclectic aesthetic of Theo Parrish’s residency and the rich elegance of club owner Ade’s own Balance night. It’s been a schooling that’s served him well and he has endeavoured to commit that same warm blend of community spirit and exacting musical standards into everything he has done since

While running as part of the Standard Place crew in London he was brought in as one of the first DJs to take part in the Boiler Room, then soon after that, he joined the fledgling NTS radio where he has broadcast since it’s first week. His show there, No Boring Intros is still one of the most listened to on the station.

Through these platforms Rust has steadily been picking up fans from around the globe, while the output on his label Levels, from underground gorgons such as Lord Tusk and Ajukaja & Andrevski, has won him the support of tastemakers as diverse as Ron Morelli, Joy Orbison and Jamie XX.

Often requested to play by other DJs, Jon has a reputation as a wildly diverse selector, with the skills, energy and confidence to translate his ever evolving taste to the dance floor. It’s now becoming obvious that Rust’s pedigree gained in the London scene affords him licence to bring just whatever he feels appropriate to the dance, wherever it is that he plays.

So whether that’s upfront techno, lush house, bubbling afrobeats or funk bombs – when it’s fused together with Rust’s energy and passion, it all makes beautiful sense.
