With Jon Besant
The Rewind with Jon Besant
He runs a worldwide event called ‘History’ in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Qatar, Marbella, Ibiza, the UK which is based on House music classics, vocal classics that everybody can sing and dance to.
The first time Jon wanted to become a DJ was my best friend at school who had a set of Technics 1210s at school and this guy was amazing doing all scratching and mixing and stuff like that and he was hooked from the moment he watched him DJ and then every weekend they used to go out together and go record shopping so he owes this to his best friend Michael. They’re still best friends to this day! Jon loves getting people together – he regards it as one of his most marketable skills!
Jon has got lots of ideas, and like every idea he has, it’s when he can’t sleep at night. He can literally grab the nearest piece of paper and start writing things down and annoyingly message people on Facebook and then literally a few days later things are born.
History was created off the back of a radio show that he did about the history of house music in Manchester.
Jon’s unique brand has unfolded and developed. From one gig in Manchester which sold out to six and a half thousand people then next international gig came about due to Mark Pick up a local DJ here who said bring this to Dubai.
He’s got a great idea for neutralising cheaters!
Join Jon as he takes you for a walk down memory lane – and don’t forget your dancing shoes!
