After years of producing music under various guises, Jon Charnis found his true calling in the slower, darker, and deeper shades of house music. This re-invention was part of a bigger shift in the artist’s life, as he relocated from Washington DC to Los Angeles, and launched a new moniker under his actual birth name. From there on, it didn’t take long to make his impact felt. His track ‘Prophecy’ was spotted by Innervisions boss, Dixon, who signed the track to his prestigious Berlin based label after road testing it at some of the world’s premier parties. He followed this up with an official remix of Art Department’s Burning Man anthem, ‘Robot Heart’ on No.19 Music, The streak continued with releases on more top labels including Supernature, All Day I Dream, and Leftroom Records.
As a DJ, Jon Charnis’ international profile has risen just as quickly. With gigs at world renowned spots including Space, Ibiza and Sonar, Barcelona, 2013 saw Jon playing across the globe in Berlin, Munich, London, and Amsterdam. Further, 2014 had seen further appearances across the US, South America, and Europe, as this fast rising musician continued to bring his unique brand of melodic, powerful, and expertly crafted music to the dancefloor. Jump forward and Jon has already performed at key events including Robot Heart at Burning Man, Lee Burridge’s All Day I Dream parties, Cityfox, Decibel Festival, BPM, and ADE in Amsterdam while releasing records on Connaisseur and Endless.
Jon Charnis has received regular support by world renowned DJs such as Dixon, Tale of Us, Ame, Art Department, John Digweed, Hernan Cattaneo, Mind Against, Thugfucker, and Audiofly to name a few.
