Its definately “WHERE AM I” to eclectic EDM mixed in with some progressive house and those Big House Dance Tunes .
DJing EDM Dance music is so much fun!!
Right, Off the bat, this was me DJing with new decks and finally got the sound that was looking to record without “clipping” etc. To many factors in doing that……and listening back now i Laugh. When i posted this i had just got these decks to play with. Its been a while….virtual dj and a mouse is not the same as knobs and sliders for producing nice EDM music mixes. And thanks to pioneer they have added an extra twist on my own trance and edm musical projects! As for the XDJ-R1 give it serato support and its a winner, they’ve done “traktor” mappings so….The iPAD integration need to work for but for your the “Local” Dj its awesome!
For a geeky sound guy i couldn’t get a clean sound…..anyway IT IS NOW ON MY SOUNDCLOUD! Or A on my SOUNDCLOUD XTRA (old but great from 2012) Still not crisp but closer…and spot glitches and things with the PIONEER XDJ-R1 firmware updated. Software need attention.
Here is a snippet for all you EDM lovers out there…
Jon Cooper’s edm music, dj, songwriter, vocalist and producer’s site is off the ground and going well after 25 years and heading to…. I can’t wait to take the lid off some product! It has to be top notch dance music before i let it out or close! There are a lot of great musical works ahead…. And I Wanna BRING DOWN THE HOUSE…stand by electronic music world…old meets new..
Thanks to social media – the #EDMFAmily and electronic dance music community as a whole for being there to validate me and Following . Please continue to Like, Share and Tweet, and #retweet if you LOL. Thank You, Bless you all . Xx

I’m Doing this For Me and my Daughter! We both miss her mum, and she don’t stop singing #SXMelectro songs! at 3 yrs old! And she makes up new dance music songs…look out edm djs writers producers everywhere she’s coming! Expect to see a Jon Cooper Ft Eva out SOON. I asked her ” what do you want to be when you grow up? ” and she replied “I wanna make music like you on those (pointing at the decks) and sing“. Bless my little star Eva. Hmm I wonder where she gets it from… She stops me from working on this but we just got each other.
EDM is my long time passion and obsession and now im older and wiser i’d like to link up and some great electronic dance music dj’s Writers and producers while working on my own musical projects.
Howard Jones – @howardjones liked my midi work of his 12″ album and threw it up on his site a long time ago. Cakewalk, a Korg and a 486 pc. I would love to get to work on a couple of your tracks and even do the vocal….Yes your songs are a mega crowd pleasers in the boondocks “you sound just like him” and a standin ovay if i sing one of your classics. I have followed your career, life and loved your music since the start. I still entertain here and there on the piano to bit of Howard! Last time was a spur of the moment Lets Do It in the hallway of a St Mary’s Hospital in Grand Rapids. Its a beautiful GRAND piano that screams DONT TOUCH when you look at it. So i Embarassed Michelle by singing No-one Is To Blame and a crowd gathered but I got the biggest hug – miss you M x.
You complimented me on my attention to detail at the time, somethings don’t change…and a recent edm mix of “Things Can Only Get Better” made me remember programming the intricacies in that track into midi data and how there was so much lost in the 2013 remix, however there was so much great about that dance track as well in the way it evolved.
Its been 15 years Howard, [icon-=icon-heart] It would be an Honor, privileged and a real treat to make something deep, spiritual and personal with a couple of your tracks with a deep house vibe. Be sure i will reference this to you on twitter and I hope you remember my musical “attention to detail” and Collab or let me do something great with something already great. If you have my files archived somewhere from HJ.com circa 2001 ish, i would love them back ;D Thanks Brother. XX
OH And i was blown away the last time I saw you at the NEC with ABC, Spandau Ballet abridged, Go West and Belinda Carlisle. That was a GREAT NIGHT!
And so involving a year long or 2 of producing snippets, riffs, samples and songs and bringing it together in a cohesive way at least i think…? Its gonna be fun getting down some of this crazy music i have written in my head, or at LEAST TRYING.. As well as trying some weird “will that work” music or a bit of off the wall edm music – I would use Mat Zo’s Lucid dream as a great example producing some groundbreaking sounds, tunes and textures…I love that TUNE . These New Kids! Luv em.
I am a classically trained vocalist and edm songwriter and , From Leicester in England, UK haha and Living in Grand Rapids, Michigan USA, for 10 years now. Singing since as long as mum can remember an no she doesn’t, making music since my teens, DJing since i was 18 “cough”. I’m hopefully gonna get some great local vocalists i have met,still becoming familiar with,wltm to sing on some projects as well as putting my own voice to work. But it seems that as time progresses and i becoming acquainted with Americas Take on #EDM , I seem to be gravitating towards the” DJ ” side of me which got me into alot of FUN in the 1990s and i’d like to put jon coopers brand on the midwest dance music scene from furniture town to mo town to chi town the world ! Did you know….Michigan is about the size of the UK. in 2014 when the lake “froze” it was the 9th largest state and 40% bigger! “Pure Michigan” Ramblings of a middleaged electrohead. Joking aside..impossible….woo ADHD.
I am going to be continually posting links to great music snippets i here and i hope i can get the edm community posting some great link to dance music that they have heard or written. I love to here and share! Thank GOD there is a twitter and instagram. Marketing spam coments ahhh.
So when im not working designing websites for a living, i will be designing my sets my music my website and working on the potential soundtrack i have in my head. YEH I KNOW GO WRITE THE NEXT BIG EDM TUNE…nuff said!
