ZOUKOUT SINGAPORE 2016: JEREMY BOON
Jeremy Boon’s love affair with House music started in 1991 when Asia’s premier electronic music club Zouk first opened its doors to the public. Not only did he define Zouk’s early sounds, he has also pushed the boundaries of House music in its various guises be it Jazz, Afro Beat, Latin, Soul or Funk inspired tunes. He established his residency at Velvet Underground in 1997 with his signature style of eclectic tunes, helming signature nights like Para//el and Disco:very.
Having contributed to the Zouk In The House Mixed Compilation on Defected Records, shared the spotlight with a multitude of superstar DJs (Norman Jay, Louie Vega, Laurent Garnier, Jazzanova & more), as well as helmed overseas gigs at dance music meccas such as Ibiza, Japan, Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide Festival in Sete and more recently, Ultra Korea, Jeremy Boon has chalked up an impressive resume and grown his fan base by leaps & bounds. His tastemaker status has also been solidified with regular features on Japan’s Modaista J-Wave 81.3FM, Singapore’s LUSH 99.5 FM and even a spot on the revered Worldwide Show on BBC Radio One. Now, it is no wonder he is one of Gilles Peterson’s favourite DJs.
