Jason Eli’s DJ & production career has grown from a love of making people dance and a desire to explore musical genres from House, Soul & Jazz to Disco and beyond. From humble beginnings as a kid growing up in London watching his older cousins play live funk music in their loft, he’s progressed to remix songs for icon’s including Whitney Houston, perform with DJ’s including Frankie Knuckles and produce music for labels including Motown, E.M.I. many more.
As one half of the Marvel & Eli production duo, Jason has produced and remixed five UK top 40 hits. Artists he’s remixed include Mos Def, Sola Rosa, Damage, Masters at Work and many others. His productions have been released on many House & Garage labels including Defected, Azuli & Locked On.
Back in the 90’s, he held a four year DJ residency at Ministry of Sound when the Ministry was at the cutting edge of underground House music.
Jason continued to spread his soulful music gospel by growing his Groovadelica record label into a successful club night & radio show (reaching 20,000 listeners every week). He also launched (with co-presenter Karl Benton) the Groovadelica podcast, which features music, interviews and opinions on some of the worlds most exciting and influential bands & artists.
Now, Jason is back in London, soaking up the city’s unique vibes, DJ’ing, producing and exploring new musical landscapes. His soulful live sets draw on both the classic (Soul, Disco, Latin & Jazz) and the new (House, UK Garage, Drum & Bass, Broken Beat, Future). MiSoul radio’s Marcia Carr has described his sound as “High dose nu-boogie”.
