Expect the best of Balearic excellence, as Melodies of Love welcome Jason Boardman, who’s part of ‘Aficionado Recordings’ & Label ‘Before I Die’.
A DJ, promoter, artist manager and most recently label manager, Jason Boardman lives, breathes, sleeps & drinks the good tonic music!
He has been a pillar of the Northern club scene for nearly three decades and is part of the Paper family, having released on the label as part of Truant and Tribadelics on our Paper and Repap imprints. His DJ resume reads like a Yellow Pages of brilliance with appearances at legendary sweat pits like The Electric Chair and Bugged Out.
He was resident DJ at Manchester’s ‘acid out’ disco night Yellow alongside Dave Haslam and a backroom pilot at superclub Hard Times in the 90s and 00s. But it was his Aficionado parties alongside Moonboots where he cemented his reputation. Originally a Sunday night party for after the after-party, it became a byword in Balearic excellence, spinning off a record label of the same name.
Today he is the selector of choice all over the North, bringing his deep record collection to life behind two turntables. His ‘Before I Die’ label is one of the most exciting & forward-thinking labels to appear, and the collab parties with SK1 Records are fast helping cement Stockport as ‘the new Berlin’.
