It all started for Jon back in September 2002, when he entered a DJ competition for Passion and M8 magazine along with 300 other hopeful DJ’s. He won. Godskitchen soon noticed his potential. They were looking for a new young DJ to offer a residency to and the prospect of a fledging career as Britain's next DJ sensation.
"It is unbelievable! I’ve loved mixing since I bought my first set of decks two years ago and now I get to do it in clubs all over the country for thousands of people" – Jon O’Bir, Mixmag 2003.
When Fergie heard about all the interest in Jon, he asked him to join him on his Radio 1 show. His half hour set, live all around the world went down a storm and Fergie was astounded by his support via emails and message boards. He could envisage big things for Jon. Fergie has been right behind Jon and included him in his ‘Fergies Fledglings’ feature on his radio 1 website. Jon has also been given the opportunity to flex his mixing muscle with an exclusive mix for Judge Jules’s international radio show and a mix on Pete Tong’s Essential Selection, as well as appearing on Armin van Buurens 100th A State of Trance radio show.
