BioIf you think Jono Fernandez is a new Australian producer on the rise, think again. Over the last decade, Jono has released a steady stream of just under thirty singles on some of the world's most respected dance music labels including Global Underground, One Love and Ministry of Sound. He's also remixed for more than twenty artists including Groove Armada, Delphic, SIA, Sarah McLeod, Bertie Blackman and Jump Jump Dance Dance, with a number of his remixes hitting the top 10 in the ARIA club charts. He's a rare dance music artist that combines fifteen years of studio experience (Jono started producing electronic music at the tender age of 15) with a strong background in classical training. (he's also an exceptional player of many instruments) The result of this talent is an extensive discography jammed with dancefloor bombs covering big room house and tech-house, progressive house, breakbeat, electronic indie/pop and techno. Its little wonder that over the years his releases have garnered support from a broad range of some of the world's biggest names in dance music. John Digweed, Dave Seaman, James Zabiela, Hernan Cattaneo, Plump Djs, Anthony Pappa, TV Rock, Meat Katie, Kid Kenobi and Phil K are just a handful of his compatriots that have been loving, playing and pushing Jono Fernandez releases over the past decade via charts, radio plays and features on global compilations. His collaborations are equally as diverse as his releases. Over the years Jono's jumped in the studio with Vance Musgrove from Aston Shuffle fame, Lot 49's Meat Katie and Dylan Rhymes, Luke Chable, Seany B, Tom Piper, and even Marvin Priest. (Yes, that's Maxi's son) In recent years, he's regularly collaborated with Tim Watson, former front man of ARIA Award winning, ARIA chart topping pop rock band Taxi Ride. The outcome of this studio buddy-hood has resulted in a top 10 ARIA Club Chart single (Girl vs Boy, scheduled for a re-release on Get Down Recordings in August 2011) and the formation of a new indie/electronic/band side project, Friends of Mine. Although its early days on this new outfit, the future is promising for Friends of Mine with radio plays and various advertising synchs already coming their way. These early achievements mind you have all been prior to the release of their forthcoming 2011 EP. The latest Jono Fernandez collaboration, with Australian songstress Katrina Noorbergen of indie band Cassette Kids has resulted in a massive main room record called Hear Me. Australian dance music powerhouse One Love certainly heard this monster, signing it swiftly and scheduling it's release for April 2011. It comes with a stellar remix package featuring mixes from John Dahlback, Digital Lab, Dave Winnel, The Immigrant and Tass. As impressive as Jono's achievements in the studio is his live show. Much like his early start in the studio, Jono was well ahead of the curve in his choice of performance mode. Ditching vinyl for CDs then moving completely over to Ableton Live as far back as 2002, his live performances need to be seen to be believed. Playing live on Ableton with MIDI controllers, drum pads, keyboards and samplers, his shows are a two hour plus epic journey through melodic techno, house and progressive. Luckily, given Jono Fernandez' current music mission, it won't be too long before you experience the journey with him.
InfluencesSwedish House Mafia, Deadmau5, Wolfgang Gartner, Eric Prydz, Miles Dyson, Mark Knight.

BIOGRAPHY: JONO FERNANDEZ
Meet Jono Fernandez. You might think you know him from such two-dimensional catchphrases as “progressive breaks prodigy”, “tech-funk pioneer”, or even the more recent “Ableton Live guru”, but if you were forced to sum up his career circa 2010 in three words they would be “expect the unexpected”. Because while Jono has been all of those things and many more in the past, these days you’re just as likely to hear him crafting future hip house anthems or big room bombs, schooling the next generation of producers in his beloved Ableton or contributing backing vocals (among other things) to his new band project Friends Of Mine. In short, Jono is one of those rarest of acts – a DJ and producer who not only says he plays music from across the board, but actually delivers on that promise.
Just a brief look at the significant signposts across his career supports his claim. When progressive house legend Dave Seaman was putting together his Global Underground 022 mix representing Melbourne in 2002, Jono’s ‘Intruder’ was one of the first tracks picked for inclusion. A few short years later British breakbeat don Meat Katie recognised Jono’s burgeoning skills in the realms of tech-funk by calling on him for the intercontinental studio collaboration that produced ‘Pace’ from his Vibrator long-player. And in 2007 his ‘Rubber’ co-production with fellow Australian wunderkind Kid Kenobi found its way on to Ministry Of Sound’s flagship Clubber’s Guide To 2007 compilation.
With both his underground and commercial papers rubber-stamped and his music in the crates/wallets/hard drives of pretty much every significant DJ in his genres of choice, Jono did the unthinkable and disappeared from view through much of 2008. But this was a temporary hiatus from the DJ circuit rather than a complete musical hibernation as Jono plotted his next move, determined to make it the right one. If you need another catchphrase “quality over quantity” springs to mind, though thankfully the fruits of his recent studio labours present plenty of both.
In 2009, the first single he dropped was ‘Girl Vs Boy’, powered by a throbbing electro bass riff but driven home by a deliciously catchy vocal which is sure to lodge itself in the minds of many – no wonder it swiftly jumped to the top twenty in the ARIA club charts hitting a high of number 15 after over 12 weeks in the chart. Then you’ve got the progressive gem ‘Everytime’ featuring the haunting vocal of Kathleen Mitchell, re-discovered by the head honchos at Proton in its original breakbeat guise on an old promo mix and finally refashioned by Jono five years later released in late 2009. Then there’s the Tom Piper collaboration ‘Rockst*r’, a rollicking hip house groove which chucks a handful of genres through the blender and then adds Marvin Priest (yes, that’s Maxi’s son) to a mix which will be just as at home on radio as it will on club dancefloors in 2010. And we can’t forget Friends Of Mine, the final piece in the Jono Fernandez puzzle – for now at least. The collaboration with long-time friend Tim Watson (that’s him you hear on ‘Girl Vs Boy’ as well) has been bubbling away under the surface for many years has now evolved into a full-blown band project. Jono’s teenage guitar rock influences – not to mention his skills on piano, violin and even the flute – all seep into the sound of a project which sits in the same ballpark as the indie dance acts of this world yet still carries many of the recognisable hallmarks of Jono’s own production.
Make no mistake – you might not be able to put his sound in a box, but even his genre-spanning DJ sets have a sound that is undoubtedly his own, though when you do see him drag his laptop and MIDI controllers into a club prepare yourself for a ride which could take you anywhere. Luckily with Jono Fernandez at the controls, you know you’re in good hands.
