DJ Ucon (also known as Jeff Manawatao) has always followed a musical path. He talks about his early upbringing, “I remember my dad teaching me all about how to properly set up his Sony home stereo system: how to load vinyl records, rewinding cassette tapes, and not scratching the bottom of CDs”. This was an early foundation to DJing (unknowingly) and a plethora of classic records (R&B, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, light rock, soulful disco, and early Hip-Hop) to hear and establish acoustic taste. Born & raised in Modesto, California and being brought up in a traditional Filipino household, Jeff states, “Music was a huge part of any family gathering.. knowing three to five Karaoke tracks to sing was a must.” This party filled, ballad singing boy would eventually enlist in the US Navy starting in 2011. DJ Ucon finished his initial Navy boot camp and was stationed in Europe (specifically Southern Spain). Ucon fell in love with Spanish nightlife and his bedroom DJing became a local club residency at (now defunct)El Niño Perdido. He had heard about Ibiza in 2012 and hopped onto the White Isle for the first time in summer of 2013. This is where he knew he belonged, his natural habitat. Fast forward to 2016, Jeff finished his five-year obligation with the Navy. Free to run with the Ibiza elite he worked a summer season with legendary Playa D’en Bossa boat party Cirque De La Nuit.

Momentum has shifted in 2022 for DJ Ucon. Now, a Full Sail University Alumni (A.S. Recording Arts, 2017) and based in San Francisco. Ucon stays within the House/ Tech House/ Soulful/ Deep House world. He states, “I feel like this is the warm up, I can’t wait to get all this new music out for the world to hear.. I just want to spread the positive Ibiza vibes for everyone to experience through my tracks, and in my music selection.”
