Jon Cooper AKA Jon Pleased Wimmin is a UK DJ who grew up in London and rose to fame in the club world during the 1990’s where his flamboyant cross dressing and stylish presence became a force to be reckoned with.
After cutting his teeth as a clubber at seminal late 80’s London clubs, Jon’s career on the other side of the decks started in 1991. His 3 piece Cabaret act ‘The Pleased Wimmin’ were spotted performing at Kinky Gerlinky by Danny & Jenni Rampling who immediately invited them to come and be dancers at their club Glam at the Milk Bar.
Over the next year it became apparent to Danny that Jon was obsessive about his music and in the summer of 1991, he asked Jon if he’d like to warm up for 6 weeks whilst Danny was in Ibiza. An immediate hit with the crowd, requests for guest slots came in thick and fast and he became a regular fixture at clubs nationwide such as Puschca, Venus, Fabric, Back To Basics, Miss Moneypennies, Slam, Pacha, Space, The Pod, Ministry of Sound, Cream and Renaissance amongst many others.
Overseas beckoned and by the end of the 1990’s Jon had played pretty much everywhere from Ibiza, Buenos Aires, Japan, South America, Australia, South Africa, Singapore, USA and more, alongside the whole of Europe.
Jon’s highly stylised dress sense (he is an ex-Fashion Student) and his skill at mixing an eclectic selection of tunes garnered praise all round and throughout the 1990’s he was a regular fixture in DJ Magazine’s top 100 best DJ’s in the world, coming 6th in 1996.
