Ron Deacon is as much a constant character as he is a well-kept secret in our electronic music scene. Despite his long-term influence in forming the enormous lively club scene of his native city Leipzig, the 30-something DJ remains modest and down to earth, even though he has a big importance as House-Producer.
What matters the most for him is the music, which is important to him since his childhood. He discovered Motown, Quincy Jones, The Jacksons 5 and Herbie Hancock at an early age. And the fact that he is almost deaf on one sidenever reduced his enthusiasm for music’s energy. He spun his first records on school radio,to freshen its repertoire of music. But the pupils couldn’t work up any enthusiasm for it so he managed to get behind the DJ desks of various clubs and bars in Leipzig at the early age of 14 - back then known as “Deep Lady”. Nowadays - known as Ron Deacon - he enjoys playing a mix of Nu Jazz, House and 2Step.
In 2000 he started trying to produce his own stuffwith different music styles,at the time known as Monopolan. Most of the time he worked alone in his studio, but also with various artists like Ekaterina alias The Kat. Finally, in 2006 his first Monopolan-EP “Coughing Is Good” was published bythe Leipzig House-Label Polish Records, which no longer exists. In the following years Ron Deacon refined his music style more and more into Deep House influenced from Soul, Jazz and Disco.
But all of Deacon’s works were stillinfluenced by the spirit of his American heroes and their music from the past 40 years. 2010 was a big step forward:The musicianreceived much international attention with his track “Untitled” on the mini-compilation “Workshop 10” under Lowtec’s Label Workshop Records. Since then, Deacon officially belongs to the Workshop-Crew, like other artists as Move D, Even Tuell and KassemMosse. Only a few months later his first own EP “Secret Garden” followed under the name Ron Deacon on FarsideRecords, an EP production with the singer The Kat. With a remix by Lowtec, Deacon completes the circle back to Workshop.
Two other important events mark Deacon’s musical career: a remix for Leipzig’s Deep House legend Frankman and a Workshop-track on the Move D-Mix-CD. The latter was a supplement to the German Musicmagazine“Groove”. Ron Deacon is also fully connected in Leipzig’s scene in another way, as head of Staubsauger aka Saug-Stauber, an alternative bar and club in the centre of Leipzig’s bustlingSüdvorstadt. There he also organizes his own party-series “SonderwunderlichVerwunderlich” where he frequently invites his friends from the Deep-House scene,including Ingo Sänger and, of course, Lowtec.
