Oliver Knight & Hugo Jones
Oliver Knight & Hugo Jones are 2 homegrown producers from the south of the UK, striving to air their blend of fresh techno cuts and groovy house basslines to the masses. Oliver & Hugo grew up in 2 very different towns, however their careers have spawned a very similar path. This path includes building up a reputation on numerous pirate radio shows, clubs, and bars as any aspiring dj looks to do.
Their paths finally crossed while working on the party island of mallorca in the world renowned resort of Magaluf. During this time Oliver was working for one of Europe’s original super clubs, BCM Planet Dance under the alias of Lee Evans, whom he currently still represents. Pitting his wits against an onslaught of the worlds elite dj’s gave Oliver the drive and determination to take his career to the next level. This is when he met Hugo.
Hugo’s reputation within the mallorcan club scene was increasing season by season, holding down numerous high profile residencies and performing at some of the resorts biggest parties under the alias Pablo Funk. And it was only a matter of time before the two decided to sit down and throw some ideas around.
It was early 2009 when these ideas really started to take shape. Extreme amounts of time and effort went into forming a partnership that would not only entertain, but also endeavor to astound. During the winter months, both Oliver and Hugo would return to london, where this partnership could be heard in numerous bars and clubs and also radio shows in London, and also Oliver’s home town of Bournemouth.
The summer months were still spent performing separately due to different residencies, however 2010 saw them finally start to create a sound that they have strived to purvey through their early work as a production duo. In the early months of 2011, Oliver & Hugo’s hard work paid off when they sent a demo of their track ‘Navaja’ to Global Underground for their search for new talent campaign which was signed much to the delight of the pair.
Continuing with their hectic dj schedules, the summer of 2011 has seen Oliver & Hugo spend as much time in the studio as possible and can now boast releases on labels such as Great Stuff records, Stereo Productions, Soda (Strictly Rhythm) David Herrero’s Ole Music Records and Cubism. Now signed to the management of Ibiza Kingpin Pete Gooding, 2011 is just the start of what is looking to be a very prosperous and exciting future for Oliver Knight & Hugo Jones
