What's on

Jon Tye


  • Balearic
  • Eclectic
  • Electronica

Though we already knew of Jon through his work with Pete Fowler as Seahawks, it was his mid-afternoon set at Port Eliot this summer that reminded us to get in touch: easy breezy not-quite-disco played on one cassette tape, precipitation and other ambient sounds played on another, with both sets of sounds having been put through some degree of phaser. Perfection.

Jon's been playing records for over 20 years and making music way longer. He runs the Lo Recordings label along with the Lo Editions music library and the Ocean Moon label. In the past he's recorded for R&S, Ninja Tune, Rising High, Jive and more.

The most recent Seahawks release 'Eternal Beams' features new age legend Laraaji and is a good indicator of where Jon's head is at right now. Expect lots of deep new age music, along with expansive electronic landscapes and some smooth beats.

Jon also makes music under the names Cherry Garcia, Brain Machine, Pink Fluid and Beach Wizards.
