Jonathan Valentine (a.k.a. Chevron
), hailing from Blackpool in the north of England, is of a rare breed who can combine some of the most diverse and challenging range of sounds to date and actually pull it off. 24-year old Chevron
's seminal live performances over the past years, releases on Mike Paradinas
' Planet Mu label and tracks on many compilations and samplers have successively raised his profile in the electronic music scene. Chevron
's long awaited debut album "Everything's Exactly The Same" formed a landmark release for 2005 and stirred up attention from dozens of internet communities, web sites and print magazines.
Described as "Stunning. Music this original and this inspiring deserves to be heard and not just imagined. 4/5" - iDJ February 2005, the album received rave reviews throughout. Getting the album just right has been critical both to Chevron
and Planet-Mu, who postponed its release by a year.
Chevrons style is notoriously difficult to pin-down to a specific genre, featuring an unlikely fusion of melodic breakcore, poppy 2-step and cartoon jungle with flavours from all around including dancehall, gabba, jungle, rave, grime, drum n bass, ska, glitch (the list goes on). Artists influential to his work include Prodigy, Orbital
and Venetian Snares
, but critics have likened his work to "a middle ground between Plaid, DJ Rupture's reconstructed ragga and the mystical techno of the Red Planet label".
Acid house, techno and hardcore rave from the early 90s certainly played an important part in Chevron
's development over the years, which was accelerated by access to an old samplers and keyboards whilst based in Blackpool. He has since changed location to Brighton where he resides with Planet Mu co-conspirators Shitmat and Exile.
