Rounding off the line up is Jon Rundell. An international DJ, acclaimed producer, in-demand remixer and record label boss, Jon is now a far cry from where he started out; saving money from part time jobs to buy his first set of decks at the age of 15. After striking up the friendship with Carl Cox through DJing on the south coast of the UK, Carl asked him to join Intec as A&R and Label Manager, and was responsible for the re-launch of the historic label in digital form.
