Jon Cooper AKA Jon Pleased Wimmin is a UK DJ who grew up in London and rose to fame in the club world during the 1990’s where his flamboyant cross dressing and stylish presence became a force to be reckoned with.

After cutting his teeth as a clubber at seminal late 80’s London clubs, Jon’s career on the other side of the decks started in 1991. His 3 piece Cabaret act ‘The Pleased Wimmin’ were spotted performing at Kinky Gerlinky by Danny & Jenni Rampling who immediately invited them to come and be dancers at their club Glam at the Milk Bar.

Over the next year it became apparent to Danny that Jon was obsessive about his music and in the summer of 1991, he asked Jon if he’d like to warm up for 6 weeks whilst Danny was in Ibiza. An immediate hit with the crowd, requests for guest slots came in thick and fast and he became a regular fixture at clubs nationwide such as Puschca, Venus, Fabric, Back To Basics, Miss Moneypennies, Slam, Pacha, Space, The Pod, Ministry of Sound, Cream and Renaissance amongst many others.

Overseas beckoned and by the end of the 1990’s Jon had played pretty much everywhere from Ibiza, Buenos Aires, Japan, South America, Australia, South Africa, Singapore, USA and more, alongside the whole of Europe.

Jon’s highly stylised dress sense (he is an ex-Fashion Student) and his skill at mixing an eclectic selection of tunes garnered praise all round and throughout the 1990’s he was a regular fixture in DJ Magazine’s top 100 best DJ’s in the world, coming 6th in 1996.

He has released numerous records, including two UK top 30 hits in the mid 90’s on the Perfecto label (‘Passion’ & Give Me Strength’) along with releases in 2004 on the Wall of Sound label under the moniker ‘The Visitor’ (‘Our Lips are Sealed’ & ‘European Love’). He also remixed many artists in the 90’s such as Erasure, Divine, Michel Colombier, Mozaic and more. Jon has also released best-selling and well-received mix compilations on Ministry of Sound, Fantazia, Pimp, Stress and Distinctive records.

In 2012 he released three of his own tracks ‘Oh Yeah’ ‘Guiltless’ & ‘Disconnected’ via the label Planet Acetate. He also remixed the single ‘Never Enough’ by Visage in 2014. In 2015 Jon released ‘Don’t be Scared (of yourself)’ on Kidology London and he released his single ‘Heels’ on Fetch Records in 2016 with remixes from Hifi Sean and more.

In 2018 he remixed the Paloma Faith single ‘Til I’m Done’ and ‘A Man Could Get Lost’ for iconic electropop band Soft Cell. Jon has recently remixed the U2 song ‘Love is All We Have Left’ which was released on vinyl as part of the Europa EP on Record Store Day on 13th April 2019. More remixes are on the way. Jon’s most recent single ‘European Love’ was released in 2019 on brand new label Chemical Alley, available from all digital music online retailers.

Jon still guests all over Europe playing current and classic sets and has played alongside the cream of the Dj world including Roger Sanchez, Pete Tong, 2ManyDj’s, Jacques Lu Cont, Danny Tenaglia, Sasha, Carl Cox, Andrew Weatherall, Boy George, Sister Bliss and Erol Alkan and was invited in 2017 to DJ with Eats Everything at XOYO in London by the man himself.

Jon’s current sets will be likely to feature tracks from artists and remixers as diverse as Brokenears, Cassimm, Butch, Superlover, Todd Terje & Purple Disco Machine to name a few.

An eclectic mix for the discerning clubber as ever.

Some recent highlights included more DJ appearances with Eats Everything, playing at Manchester Pride alongside Ana Matronic from Scissor Sisters and DJing at the 40th Anniversary gig at the O2 in London for Soft Cell.

HEADLINER – Darren Martin (HouseWork Ibiza/Kinky Malinki)

Born in Jersey in the seventies Darren Martin was front and centre of the rave scene that flooded the island in the early 90’s. A regular at the illegal raves and famous Inn on The Park parties that put Jersey on the map back in the day the impact that had is still evident in every set Darren plays out. Having left Jersey 20 years ago DJing came much later in life and now four years clean and sober the music remains and his career and love for beats is stronger than ever.

His upfront old school ravey sound has gained the attention of some notable promoters in Spain and U.K including residencies with Kinky Malinki, WTHouse, Smiley Culture and RUSH London together with supporting Slipmatt for Slip Back in Time earlier this year. Playing alongside the likes of Alex P, Danny Rampling, The Dolly Rockers, Jason Bye, Terry Farley and David Penn in 2023 it is clear Darren has hit his sweet spot in a scene that is thriving.

Playing long sets is also how Darren has become renowned in Southern Spain and Ibiza under his brand HouseWork. HouseWork has grown to put on some of the best pool, club and boat parties in Marbella since 2020. In the last two years Ibiza has been a second home for Darren gaining the attention of the most beautiful club in the world, Es Paradis who asked Darren to host their closing party at the end of 2023. 2024 sees him taking the party back to Jersey for the first time together with further dates at Es Paradis in 2024 and a debut for HouseWork in Gibraltar. With two radio shows held down with FreshSoundz radio and MoveIbiza there are no plans to slow down for this House Head.
