    Jason Eli’s career as a DJ and producer is a result of a love for making people dance and a desire to explore musical genres from House, Soul, to Jazz, Afro-Beat, Funk and beyond. His humble beginnings playing his big cousins’ records at the age of 11 have taken him forwards to DJ at countless parties, festivals and some of the most well known club venues all over the world, from Ministry of Sound in London to the iconic Splore festival in New Zealand and many places in between. As a music producer & remixer he's worked on tracks for music icon’s like Whitney Houston, remixed songs for labels like Motown and produced music for underground singing legends like Sharlene Hector of Basement Jaxx.

    Club DJ & Radio Host

    Jason held a four year residency at Ministry of Sound alongside DJ Harvey, Justin Berkmann (the founder of MoS) and Bert Bevans when the Ministry was at the cutting edge of underground House music. He's rocked crowds and toured with legends like the godfather of House - the late Frankie Knuckles, Techno pioneer Kevin Saunderson, ex Studio 54 resident Kenny Carpenter, Masters at Work, Norman Jay and many more. Moving on from Ministry of Sound, Jason widened his sets to include more latin flavours, Disco and live instrumentation. His next regular influential club night was “Swaraj”, based in London’s Blue note club - one of the first events in the world to blend Indian music with the exploding dance culture of the time.

    Over the years, he has continued to refuse to be boxed into one club music style and developed his own brand of up-tempo, percussive, soulful DJ sets that draw on both the classic (Soul, Disco, Salsa) and the new (House, UK Garage, Drum & Bass, Broken Beat, Future). He often brings his own live keyboard playing to the party to add some extra creativity and energy to his sets, as well as often featuring amazing live singer's, MC's and musicians. His recent set at New Zealand's Splore festival featuring MC Earl Gateshead and vocalist Sharlene Hector (Basement Jaxx) is a memorable example.

    Over a four year period, Jason presented the Groovadelica radio show on Auckland’s George FM, and used this platform to push his eclectic tastes in Soulful, uplifting sounds for over four years every week. The show had a solid following of around 20,000 people every week, but he decided to stop broadcasting due to his other musical commitments. It may be back one day!

    Producer and Remixer

    His production and remix career so far has taken many twists and turns. Originally he focused on House music. A few years after that he was on a mission to fuse eastern beats with electronica. As one half of the Marvel & Eli production duo, Jason produced and remixed five UK national top 40 hits. Artists he’s remixed include Whitney Houston, Mos Def, Sola Rosa, Damage, Masters at Work and many others. His numerous other productions and remixes have been released under various pseudonyms or collaborations by labels including EMI, Defected/Copyright, Sony Music, Locked On and many more.

    His sound today has been described as somewhere between the soul/funk Anderson .Paak, the grooves of Brass Construction and the energy of Skream. Keep an eye out for his current productions being released on his own Groovadelica label.

    Groovadelica

    Jason launched Groovadelica originally as an outlet for his collaborations with musicians, singers and performers. Since then Groovadelica has grown into a music event, radio show and a place for creative talent to grow. The Groovadelica club nights have gone down a storm in Jason’s home town of Auckland due to the unique combination of Live music from in house band The Groovadelica Orchestra, fresh vocalists, beautiful food and of course great local and international DJ’s.
