With co-signings from some of Europe’s most influential venues, platforms and labels, including Düsseldorf’s Salon des Amateurs and London’s NTS Radio, Cologne-based artist Phillip Jondo has garnered a reputation as a first-class DJ and producer since many years.
His debut EP Little Princess for Dekmantel (2021), featured knockout collaborations with Maxwell Sterling, DJ Plead and Moa Pillar. Jondo’s upcoming BISQU EP feat. Xzavier Stone and DJ Plead will be released via his own imprint SPA Recordings and treads a similarly weighty path. The label SPA was launched in 2018 by Jondo and his friends DJ Brom and Friday Dunard.
Since 2014 Phillip has been regularly hosting shows on NTS and inviting international guests to deliver forward thinking and creative selections. His surprising and emotional DJ sets cover everything from grime, house, footwork, jungle, rap, dancehall, R&B, disco to bass-heavy techno. Jondo’s passion for experimentation made him a unique selector, who has been able to seamlessly connect the dots between these various styles through thoughtful layering and creative mixing skills.
With highlight shows including festivals and clubs like Draaimolen, Meakusma, Dekmantel, Dekmantel Selectors, Melt, Robert Johnson and De School, Jondo has presented his distinctive sound to a variety of audiences across Europe.
