Jon1st & Shield Jon1st & Shield

20/20 | FLY HIGH

Based: Leicester, UK & Copenhagen, DK

Jon1st and Shield are excited to share their new collaborative live project.

Having met through their respective involvements in Ivy Lab’s 20/20 label, the duo started collaborating in late 2016, combining their mutual passion for fusing beats and alternative bass music with live performance – Jon1st as a former World DMC Champion turntablist and Shield as a classically trained percussionist and multi-instrumentalist.

They have since developed a full live show together, performing a set of entirely their own productions live, which they have teased through a series of live performance videos showcasing their project, including a collaboration with turntablist legend DJ Craze and a project with Pioneer DJ, who hand picked them to showcase their Toraiz production range with their single, Holla.

In 2019 they have already performed an extensive tour of North America, receiving widespread critical acclaim for their club and festival performances, and have released their debut EP, Flapjacks, as well as a series of singles, experiencing support from a wide array of scene leaders from Ivy Lab to Noisia to Claude Von Stroke.
