About Jason ELI
Ex Ministry of Sound resident DJ 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 older 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 Manchester's iconic Hacienda,
to the Notting Hill Carnival to the Splore festival in New Zealand and many places
As a music producer & remixer he's worked on tracks for music legend's including
Whitney Houston, remixed songs for Motown and produced
music for underground singing legends like Sharlene Hector of Basement Jaxx.
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. 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.
Producer and Remixer
Jason initially focused his production talents on just House music, but now his
sound seamlessly moves in and out of Soul, Latin, House, Funk & Bass heavy sonics.
Jason has produced and remixed five UK national top 40 hits.
Artists he’s remixed include Whitney Houston, Mos Def, Sola Rosa, Damage,
Masters at Work. 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.
