Jon Rust is a real DJ’s DJ. Often hand picked by many tastemakers to feature alongside them, Jon has a reputation as a fiercely diverse selector with the skills, experience and confidence to translate his evolving tastes to the dance floor.

It’s now becoming obvious that Rust’s pedigree gained in the London scene affords him licence to bring just whatever he feels appropriate to the dance, wherever it is that he plays.

A born and bred Londoner Jon learned the ropes working at the legendary Plastic People, Rinse FM and Tempa, also running parties as Standard Place (alongside Oneman and Reecha) one of the first crew of DJs asked to take part and perform on Boiler Room.

Soon after that, as a resident at NTS radio (Rust has been broadcasting on the station since the station’s first week on air), Rust has been able to gain fans from around the globe.

Now Rust is turning heads with his own imprint – Levels through which he has released music from the likes of Lord Tusk and Ajukaja & Andrevski, winning him the support of tastemakers as diverse as Ron Morelli, Benji B and Jamie XX, (who he supported on his European “Colours” Tour in 2015).
