Jason Vereker

With a lifelong passion for music ranging from soul to pop to rock to hip-hop & then dance Jason started DJing in the early ‘90s. After moving to Manchester his first break came when a demo tape (no mp3’s back then!) landed him a gig at the Hacienda for a new night & so his first club appearance was behind the decks of one of the most famous clubs in the world! Over the years he’s played most venues around Manchester (including starting a long standing residency with Funkademia), has done guest mixes for local dance stations Kiss/Galaxy/Key103 and appeared further afield in the UK & Ibiza through working with promoters such as Retro & Garlands.

Since 2005 he’s been a part of Hed Kandi as one of their resident DJ’s continuing with a national/international gig schedule which has seen visits to Ibiza, Munich, Frankfurt, Berlin, Norway, Vancouver, Zagreb, Barcelona, Dubai, Rotterdam, Turkey and Amsterdam as well as most of the major UK clubs.

Musically there has always been two main sides to his DJing – house and soul/funk/disco but with an eclectic taste in music and an open mind there’s not much he won’t listen to. Outside of Hed Kandi gigs there’s a liking of the deeper/techier house sound and in soul/funk/disco sets he goes across the board including more of the Nu Disco/Cosmic sound in recent years.
