Beginnings – January 2015 Demo

greencatMy new demo for January 2015 is now up on Mixcloud for your listening pleasure. I threw in a few tunes i’ll be playing at some of my upcoming gigs and on my radio show in early February and a couple favourites i’ve been listening to over the festive season. some nice deep house vibes with some bouncy techy passages that should get a few toes tapping.

I hope you like it x

Happy 2015 from Herukajon <3

2014 was a good year for Herukajon. After returning from Egypt in December 2013, the year got off to something of a slow start, but it wasn’t ever likely to stay that way for long.

Over the following months a string of events found their way into his diary. The gigging year began with the first in a series of solo nights at Inspiral Lounge and was shortly followed by a return to Whirl-y-gig‘s Cafe Teez and a 6 hour set in the main room of Zu Studios when they reopened their doors after a break for the winter months. By May he had entered Gottwood Festival‘s DJ competition, eventually finishing in the top 5.

August saw him playing after-party sets for Brighton Pride (with Inertia) and at the 2nd ever Whirl-Y-Fayre in Somerset alongside names like Child Of Illusion, Globular, Afriquoi and Zub Zub.

In September was the launch of his internet Radio show “Herukajon’s Cat House” on Houseport.fm, and in October he had a string of gigs for Happy Daze (Bristol) with his friends at Dachshund Records, Inspiral Lounge (for the third time that year), Wobbly Records (Tech-ers@Chequers) in Brighton; Carousel’s Rocky Horror Ride and a return to Zu Studios to celebrate 2 years behind the decks in the venue where he played his first public gigs.

November saw him teaming up with old friend’s Painter’s Radio and Vital Consultant for the first time, to play supporting sets for their Christmas gigs and throughout December he pulled together a pool of talent to produce A Musical Advent Calendar uploading a new mix from a surprise DJ every day in the run-up to Christmas featuring many friends from nights like Planet Angel, Whirl-y-gig, Purple, Wobbly Records, Shanti Planti Collective, Happy Daze and TechYES.

A long held ambition came true when he was booked to play for Wonderland‘s December party, finishing his gigging year on a high note in the Main room at new London venue “Track” on Allhallow’s lane.

2015 is already looking set to build on the successes of last year with bookings so far confirmed for Inspiral Lounge on the 6th February, Psycarnival at Lakota, Bristol on the 7th; and Gottwood Festival and Brighton Yoga Festival in June. After a month off “Herukajon’s Cat House” will be returning to the airwaves in early February at its new home on Earth Dance Radio when he joins the team there. Other plans for 2015 are to branch out start blogging some older mixes on here, to use this site a little more frequently and see a lot more of you all on the dance floor.

So to kick off 2015 here’s the first mix of the year…a promo mix made for Psycarnival @ Lakota, Bristol on the 7th of February. There should a belated january demo mix on the way in the coming days to look forward to as well. Happy New Year!
