Salo Jones - 2000 profile

:::::: Salo Jones ::::::

Salo Jones has always been passionate about music, and when the acid house revolution began around 1989 he quickly caught on to the vibe. Frequenting such seminal clubs as The Tunnel on the Gold Coast, The Beat in Brisbane and landmark raves such as the first Adrenalins, he had found his musical niche.

He first spun records in 1993, but didn't take up seriously spinning until purchasing his own decks in 1994 whilst living in the UK. Inspired by such legendary DJs as Sasha, Digweed, Laurent Garnier, Ritchie Hawtin and Danny Rampling, coupled with frequenting arguable the best clubs in the world, there was no turning back for this boy.

Salo plays a dark, dubby, tribal mix of beats and breaks. From Nu Skool Breaks through to deep house, tech house and progressive trance. This is music to close your eyes, stand in front of the speakers and dance for hours to. Throbbing, sexy basslines, tearing riffs and voodoo like beats make it impossible for punters to stand still.

His first gig was in a dodgy pub in Brighton UK, and since then he has gone on to play in such diverse places as Rome and Thailand. Salo was a resident at 77 Sunset Strip in Melbourne and a regular contributer to Kiss FM there, and locally he has played at the now defunct Tube, Chris Tisdell's mighty Progression nights as well as Salo's own Unusual Suspects and Supersonic nights. His silky mixing and keyed programming make him on of Brisbanes leading lights.
