- Jordan has surpassed the goals of many a rave-devotee, playing sets in the likes of Ibizan superclub Eden, doing so with the aplomb of a musician twice his age. He has also pulled the strings of fervent dance floors in The Cross in London, and even Dublin's Fairyhouse Racecourse and Belfast's Kings Hall, all impressively serving as notches on his young belt. Alongside this, regular jaunts to Newcastle, Glasgow and Derry sit comfortably alongside regular three hour sets as resident at Belfast's after-hours party den, Yello. Jordan also became the youngest DJ to perform a live set on Radio One, direct from the main stage of Antrim's Planet Love Festival in 2006, and even found time for a bit of stage diving, despite being live on air.... Inspiration currently derives heavily from the underground European techno sounds of Dubfire, Johannes Heil, Paul Ritch and Marco Carola, as well as fresh talent such as Uto Karem, whilst being imbued with his own frantically energetic elements. Jordan's 2009 remix of Fergie's 'The Badness' on Excentric Muzik, recieved plays on Radio One by mainstream house music Guru Dave Spoon, as well as from DJ's such as Tresor's Axel Bartsch and Louis Osborne. With a past repetoire of media coverage, ranging from big ups by Mixmag staff, and being listed as 'One To Watch' by I-DJ Mag, to features on BBC 1 and mainstream newspapers, Jordan's appeal both within and outside the underground is evident. In the studio, Jordan and studio partner Dave Lievense are firing on all cylinders, recogniseable as producers of quality music for the dancefloor. The winter is looking just as manic, with forthcoming gigs seeing Jordan sharing festival stages with the likes of Pendulum, and of course continued studio badness.
- Me, Myself, and I
- Jordan McCuaig (Jordan X) iis undeniably one of the most exciting young DJs of the moment. Gracing the same stage as the likes of World Dance Powerhouses Mauro Picotto, Fergie and Audiojack, and some of the most prominent underground DJs on the UK scene such as Mistress de Funk, Raudive and Spektre in recent gigs, there is certainly a lot more to come from the 19 year old from the reputably thriving musical backdrop of Belfast. Performing under the alias of Jordan X, and now based in the similarly nocturnal Leeds, Jordan's enthusiastic personality and mammoth hunger for a party are the rocket fuel behind his blistering DJ sets, the likes of which have been delivered in Leeds’ venues such as Wire and Myhouse, as well as the Custard Factory in Birmingham, embracing the ears of clubbers with his unique sound with a fiery enthusiasm rarely seen in DJ’s these days. Despite his eminence within the UK, Jordan is, however certainly no stranger to the world stage.

Apologies for the lack of updates in recent months. I left the DMA announcement on the site to try and gather up support for the awards, as opposed to leaving updates.
On that note, the dance music awards were very successful, I came away with Best Upcoming Talent, whereas Fergie and LOST won Best DJ and Best clubnight, respectively.
The next few weeks bring some exciting gigs, with debuts at Voodoo, Letterkenny with Richard Dinsdale, Ibiza gigs with Excentric at Kanya, Earth and Buddha in Derry, as well as Traks in Portrush.
Cheers again for all your support in the awards, and keep an eye on the myspace @ www.myspace.com/jrdnx !

"I believe Jordan is one of the most promising DJ's ever to come from Northern Ireland. Even though he is still extremely young he exudes the intelligence and modesty of someone way beyond his years. Couple this with his stage presence, exuberance, enthusiasm and technical ability and we have a star in the making."
Eddie Wray - Director, Planet Love Music Promotions. January 2007.”
From the country that has spanned some of the modern dance scene's biggest stars, such as David Holmes, Fergie, Agnelli & Nelson and Phil Kieran, it's no great shock that the newest prodigy is making such a noticeable impact. Holding what is looking like one of the busiest diaries in Northern Ireland for the next year, Jordan has rocked clubs around the UK, now under the management
of Fergie's EXCENTRIC agency.
With 2006 being his most successful year yet, the boy dubbed by festival giant, Planet Love as "Northern Ireland's answer to Eddie Halliwell"
played headline gigs and guest slots at Ireland's hottest nightspots, such as The Coach superclub, Revolution @ Clubland and the Nerve Centre in Derry,
as well as english club brand, Ikon, in Newcastle and Coventry, Elements in Bournemouth, as well as gigging in London at The Factory, and SeOne....and almost forgetting to mention playing packed concert events at the Kings Hall in Belfast to 8,000 of the country's most up-for-it, sharing the bill with Marco V, Lisa Lashes, Scot Project, Sander Van Doorn, Mauro Picotto and hardstyle guru, Luna.
Holding a monthly residency at the 1000-capacity 'LOST' in Belfast, has allowed Jordan to expand his passionate local fanbase, sharing deck duties with some of the worlds top hard dance and trance talent, whilst showcasing his tough, involved, energetic and often unpredictable, tech-influenced style.
Despite such active club gigs, Jordan also performed two sets at the famed Planet Love 2006 festival on the 9th of September- one being a peak time set from the main stage, to 10,000, whilst going out to potential millions, live on the UK's national Radio One, alongside a broadcast lineup which consisted of Judge Jules, Mauro Picotto, Christopher Lawrence, Paul van Dyk and Fergie. At only 16, Jordan was the the youngest DJ to ever perform live set on the station, a record which he had previously accomplised via Riley and Durrant's 'NuBreed' Show on Galaxy FM, on which he performed a half-hour live studio mix in leeds, as well as an interview in 2005.
On the media front, the rise in popularity has been duly noted- with heavy coverage in the likes of I-DJ Mag as 'One to Watch' a documentary based on Jordan aired on BBC's "Inside Out" series, and alongside Fergie on BBC Talent's "Super DJ's" show. The internet has also been instrumental to Jordan's successes, with sites such as YouTube and Myspace containing popular videos of Jordan in club action, and websites such as the UK's largest independent clubbing guide "HarderFaster" putting out interviews.
Jordan is constantly in the studio, lacing ideas for solo tracks, alongside a certain UK Top 10 Producer, which have recieved support through the summer on Radio One's "Furious Fifteen," as well as being quoted by Mixmag Editor, Gavin Herlihy as "...an exciting debut from one of house music's hottest and youngest new talents. It smashed the Mixmag office when we tested it and is a surefire electro house club killer to finish off the summer in style."
This year's diary continues to fill, with headline gigs at the likes of 'ZU' in Derry, "Tempo" in Ballycastle and Traks in Portrush confirmed for the early part of the year, as well as gigs at "Hard House Academy Ireland," The Coach in Banbridge, and of course, the monthly sessions at LOST. Jordan will also be doing more English dates than before as part of the Excentric roster, and with gigs in clubbing mecca Ibiza planned for July- it's looking somewhat crazy...or some would say...
