JON CONNOR

BubbleJam supremo, DJ & amazing producer Jon Connor is joining us on the 31st August.

Jon who has been a great supporter and believer in the Indian Summer event from the start.

Welcome Jon to Indian Summer

Bubblejam label boss man From the starry-eyed hedonism of Welsh free party culture, to the new frontiers of Eastern Europe’s burgeoning dance scene, few DJs can lay claim to the pedigree and passion of Jon Connor. A talent as raw as the tougher end of the techno he has played and produced for the last two decades, physical mixing, a constant forward momentum, and an unashamed focus on starting parties are cornerstones of a career that has spanned the rise, fall, and resurgence of the global electronic phenomenon.

Supertech founder, Bubblejam label bossman, universally respected underground player, and dedicated disciple of the true school of turntablism, his story leaves ego and arrogance in the cloakroom, and places the focus where it should be- music- with sweat saying far more than cliched words ever could. In an age of marketing fakery and artists as brands Connor’s attitude remains rooted in old school rave principles, while his sounds sit on the cutting edge of fast noise. Enough said, he’ll see you down the front.

Paul Bleasdale

Paul Bleasdale

Growing up in and around the electro and break-dancing scene of the 1980's; Paul Bleasdale's transition to raver, clubber and then DJ was a natural one. After building his name in local bars, he was offered the chance to become the resident DJ at a new club opening in Liverpool, Cream. The rest is history as they say. He is still the original Cream resident DJ, from it's inception to the close of its doors in 2002. He was the driving force behind the tough underground sound of the club's legendary 'Annexe' room which hosted the worlds best DJ's, shaping the sound for Cream's loyal and dedicated following.

As well as his residency in Liverpool, Paul was Cream's main tour resident, playing all over the globe, taking a little piece of Cream's amazing atmosphere to its adoring worldwide fans, while cementing his own reputation as one of the leading DJ's of that time in the underground house and techno genre.

Mixes and Production soon followed, the highlights being the much revered 'Cream Anthems' alongside David Morales, and a collaboration with Andrew Weatherall for Deconstruction Records' underground label 'Concrete'.

Not satisfied with just playing classics to a generation that grew up listening to him in Cream; Paul has also joined forces with an up and coming local underground House and Tech Record Label called "Big Fist". With one track, appropriately named 'Annexed', already storming up the charts with support from the world's biggest names. The follow up track 'This Sound' proved to be his biggest production yet.

Paul's passion and strong work ethic is still evident, with production to come and bookings up and down the country and abroad, alongside his Cream and Creamfields duties.

Rob Tissera

Rob Tissera

Rob Tissera is one of dance music's most prolific stars. A top-selling producer and versatile dj whose technical brilliance and effervescent sets have seen him pack out parties across the globe. Tissera's experience and ability to thrill audiences playing any genre is something only a handful of DJ can match. Famed for his hi-energy hard trance and hard house sets he's also rocked audiences playing dirty funk, uplifting house or big room trance.

Over the years he's played every big party. He's been a regular at Gatecrasher, The Gallery, Tidy Weekenders, Frantic, Slinky, Ministry of Sound, Sundissential, Hacienda, Pam's House, Wildchild, Hard House Academy, Union, Godskitchen, GoodGreef , Global Gathering, Creamfields and Homelands to name a few. His closing set at Tidy Summer Camp in 2004 and 2005 are frequently talked about sets of the Summer Camps. Rob is also regular in Ibiza and has held residencies at Lashed, Sundissential and Garlands. In 2004 he graced the hallowed turntables of Radio One, not once, but twice - something only DJ elite ever get to do. The first time was with a converted Essential Mix and the second, a live mix from Radio One's Weekend in Ibiza.

A forward thinking dj Rob is constantly embracing new technology in music.

A world-class remixer Rob re-edits the majority of tunes he plays which gives the audience a unique musical experience. Such is his skill on the decks he mixes using three decks and two CDJs overlaying each song with accapellas and effects to add to the Tissera experience. His sets are really something to behold.

Apart from being a skilled DJ Rob is a world-class and top-selling music producer. In 2002 "The Day Will Come" produced under his pseudo name Quake with Ian Bland shot to number 30 in the UK charts. This led to three tracks being commissioned for the award winning soundtrack of the cult movie 'Human Traffic Soundtrack'. Quake's 1998 remix of York 'The Awakening' sold over a quarter of million copies and reached number 11 in the charts. And with tunes today getting to number one by selling less than 25 thousand this is some mile stone.

As a result he's was asked to remix a string of high selling remixes for people such as Blank and Jones, Judge Jules, Eddie Halliwell, ATB, Anne Savage, Armin Van Buurin, The Tidy Boys. In 2004 he reached the top 100 UK chart again - this time with his uplifting hard dance tune with "Stay" which he co-produced with Vinylgroover and The Redhed which was acclaimed by industry and clubbers alike.

As well as producing tracks Rob is regularly asked to produce mix albums. His consistency and musical flair in guaranteed to sell records. In 2004 he produced Hard Dance Anthems and the critically acclaimed Goodgreef 2 Album.

In January 2004 Rob Tissera also launched house night Kissdafunk in Leeds with Glyn Tolley. Here Rob delights audiences playing uplifting house to a packed out club.
In just over 12 months the party where he is also resident has been nominated for the UK's' best house night and has appeared on Radio One's Essential Selection feature 'House Rules'. As well as the monthly party Kissdafunk has also held two parties in London, three at Passion in Coalville, and two Garlands' hell raisers in Ibiza.

Dave Crawford

Dave Crawford

Festival co-host Dave Crawford

I'm currently involved with running and organising the Indian Summer Festival, bringing together quite a few years of experiences to create an environment that captures the imagination and provides a playground for people to enjoy each others company. I have been involved with Indian Summer for the past 2 years, developing the Festival and delivering events.

I've been playing in and around Manchester since 1989. I mostly played underground bars & clubs got my first overseas event at 19 when I went to play in Holland playing at a club that is now the Harbour Bar in Rotterdam. I got involved with more underground scenes after running a few nights across Manchester under the heading 4playLive, Break Glass and Breaking Point at various venues. Our main home was at the MusicBox. Our warehouse projects were run under a collective know as 'Missing in Manchester'.

I took a break from the scene in 2008 and returned in 2012 playing a few small venues as part of House Music Live and then went to play in Ibiza for a time supporting the development of No Name Ibiza which was a really good experience playing alongside some great DJ's.

I set up a venue in Manchester in 2015 called RBase and established links with events across a wide genre base bringing underground promoters together to build nights in the city. This led to quite a few diverse types of opportunities from dub to jungle, house, techno, DnB, playing and delivering sound systems to events.

I started playing with Deep Senses in 2016 after a trip out to Spain to support a Club in Andalucia, I now play a couple of times a year with them out in Spain developing the brand, with a new music festival due to begin out there. I play a wide range of sounds but always try to bring new uplifting vibes whether that be warming up, playing a beach front chillout session or playing a mainline show working to keep the groove alive.

Much like when I was a kid I still enjoy listening to djs play, I'm a fan, so when ever I get to hear other people delivering their sounds I'm in my element, Indian Summer for me is the perfect way to bring together performers and artists, new and old to provide a quality experience, that captures the imagination and broadens our musical horizons.
