Herukajon is a London based DJ with an ear for a tasty groove. Having played his first gigs behind the decks in late 2012, he has secured himself a niche in the London underground dance scene playing sets for Acidic Records, Whirl-y-gig and Inspiral Lounge, as well as Zu Studios, in Lewes and Alchemy Festival.
Raised as a classically trained violinist, singer, and pianist he soon took an interest in Psychedelic Rock of the 60’s and 70’s playing Rhythm Guitar and Bass in a number of bands including ‘The Cosmic Charlies’ (A London-based Grateful Dead Tribute band) before his interested was grabbed by the global beats and electronic sounds of his first raves at Whirl-y-gig and other London parties.
Preferring to stay away from the heavier Bass driven sounds of the London Music Scene, Herukajon’s style is often characterised by a steady Four-to-the floor kick with light uplifting melodies and a cheeky syncopated shuffle in the high end. His sets range from brooding intensity to joyful uplifting melodies and whether he is warming up, winding the night down, or anywhere in between, he understands the value of subtlety and ‘playing the holes’. He has often remarked that ‘the note un-played is as important, if not more so, than the notes you hear’ and has described his job as a musician to be ‘to create beautifully framed silences.’
He plays events regularly for Inspiral Lounge, Whirl-y-gig’s Café Teez After-party, Inertia and occasional events including Alchemy festival, Brighton Yoga Festival, Wonderland, Carousel, Happy Daze and several other nights and private parties. He currently likes to play an eclectic blend of Minimal Techno, Deep House, and melodic Tech-House very much inspired by the sounds of the Berlin Scene.
