Jon Cooper AKA Jon Pleased Wimmin is a UK DJ who grew up in London and rose to fame in the club world during the 1990s when his flamboyant cross-dressing and stylish presence became a force to be reckoned with.

After cutting his teeth as a clubber at seminal late 80’s London clubs Jon’s career on the other side of the decks started in 1991. His 3 piece Cabaret act ‘The Pleased Wimmin’ was spotted performing at Kinky Gerlinky by Danny & Jenni Rampling who immediately invited them to come and be dancers at their club Glam at the Milk Bar.

Over the next year it became apparent to Danny that Jon was obsessive about his music and in the summer of 1991 he asked Jon if he’d like to warm up for 6 weeks whilst Danny was in Ibiza. An immediate hit with the crowd requests for guest slots came in thick and fast and he became a regular fixture at clubs nationwide such as Puschca Venus Fabric Back To Basics Miss Moneypennies Slam Pacha Space The Pod Ministry of Sound Cream and Renaissance amongst many others.

Overseas beckoned and by the end of the 1990’s Jon had played pretty much everywhere from Ibiza Buenos Aires Japan South America Australia South Africa Singapore USA and more alongside the whole of Europe.

Jon’s highly stylised dress sense (he is an ex-Fashion Student) and his skill at mixing an eclectic selection of tunes garnered praise all around and throughout the 1990’s he was a regular fixture in DJ Magazine’s top 100 best DJs in the world coming 6th in 1996.

He has released numerous records including two UK top 30 hits in the mid 90’s on the Perfecto label (‘Passion’ & Give Me Strength’) along with releases in 2004 on the Wall of Sound label under the moniker ‘The Visitor’ (‘Our Lips are Sealed’ & ‘European Love’). He also remixed many artists in the 90’s such as Erasure Divine Michel Colombier Mozaic and more. Jon has also released best-selling and well-received mix compilations on Ministry of Sound Fantazia Pimp Stress and Distinctive records.

SOFIA F

Born and raised in London, Sofie F started DJing in 2001, playing at the iconic Soundshaft in Heaven as well as clubs and bars around Clerkenwell. After moving to Devon and taking a break to raise 2 girls, she has gone from strength to strength re-launching on the Exeter scene in 2017, all thanks to support from Dark Knights.

With a CV almost as good as her music collection she is now a regular at many of the House nights in the city: she is Resident DJ for Magic Hatstand at The Cavern and one-third of the hugely successful Filthy Dirty Disco with whom, in 2023, she has appeared at Spring Classic, Big Feastival and Boogietown. This year Sofie F has spread her wings with sets for Cymatics in Plymouth, alongside appearances for Dark Knights, Caption and of course Milkland. On the festival circuit, her headline set at Yarty Party 2023 has become the stuff of legend.

Fayble

Learning to mix on vinyl in 2004 in her bedroom was the beginning of a 20 love affair with mixing music for Fayble. Hard trance and hard dance were her tunes of choice back in the day, sparked by regular nights out at Monastery Torquay and the Dance Academy Plymouth. Playing at some local festivals and bagging a set at a Monastery reunion saw her confidence rise. Nowadays, Fayble’s passion for bass /tech house is obvious with her holding a two-year residency for Caption Events as well as managing and playing for Milkland Events. She is also known for her breakbeats and DNB if the mood takes her!! Forbidden Garden, Yarty Party and Immunity are among some of her most recent festival bookings and this year she will be taking time out to do some well overdue production of her music too.
