London based DJ/producer Jon O’leary aka AS I AM is set to burst onto the House music scene very soon. His New track ‘Saving Grace’ has already received support from huge names in the industry such as Pete Tong, Kerry Chandler, Danny Howard, Kenny Dope, MK , Dennis Ferrer and is set for release via the seminal label, Defected Records.
Son of a bass guitar player, AS I AM grew up in South East London listening to all kinds of music, from 80’s disco, Phil Collins, Alexander O’neill, Marvin Gaye to Jamiroquai, Daft Punk and all of the obvious. His first foray into music involved him messing around on his grandad’s keyboard for hours on end before moving onto mixing with cassettes on two stereos in audacious attempts at making mix tapes.
Co-founder of one of London’s longest running underground radio stations. AS I AM is no stranger behind the decks, having gained ample experience DJing in and around London for many years as well as running his own event, Heavyweight House. Tampering with productions since the late nineties whilst flirting with different genres including Progressive House, Garage and Electro; his whirlwind adventure with music has brought him back home to House music. AS IAM’s high-energy rhythm sets are packed full of deep basslines and subtle vocals that ensure a brilliant journey every single time.
2015 looks to be a landmark year as “Saving Grace” will be the first of many tracks that have been carefully assembled for the dance floor and ready to be unleashed by AS I AM.
