Continuing their ongoing Thursday throwdown of bass faces and capacity dance floors, SOUND SYSTEM brings to you their next heavy hitting headliner: Bontan. His remix of “Got A Feeling” was one of the most played tunes in Ibiza 2013. Support will come from residents George Francis & Jakuzé, with more TBC.
Hailing from the North of England, music has always been a major part of Bontan’s life. Having learnt to play the family piano by the age of seven, it was clear which path in life he wanted to take. Underground house was his first love, regularly going to see DJs such as Dennis Ferrer, Kerri Chandler, DJ Spen, The Martinez Brothers, Kenny Dope and Derrick Carter, to name just a few, as soon as he was old enough to enter the clubs.
Producing music and fine tuning his sound over many years, Bontan eventually burst on to the scene with his debut EP “Hit It From The Back”, which was picked up by the mighty Pleasurekraft for their standout label, Kraftek. Since then, Bontan has seen releases on labels such as MTA, Toolroom, Pura & Great Stuff. With countless Radio 1 plays, and support from the likes of Pete Tong, B.Traits, Bondax and Pleasurekraft, it’s safe to say Bontan has stapled himself as a name to look out for on the underground circuit.
George Francis & Jakuzé, both residing in Southampton UK, this pair have built themselves quite the reputation for taking the house rave by the metaphorical balls and injecting it with their unique blend of deep and bass house. The duo formed when working for one of Southampton’s favoured underground venues, putting on events tailored to them and their friends, so they know only too well of the importance in playing music that reflects their good time, party ethos.
