CRISCO RECOMMENDS PERKO
Published May 9, 2022
Sicily born and Copenhagen based DJ, Producer and Promoter Crisco is on a mission to become an integral part of the operations in the city’s electronic music scene, both in the organisation of events and as a resident DJ. We asked him to recommend another promising talent on the scene.
Crisco: “Perko aka Fergus Jones is a producer and DJ from Scotland who currently resides in Copenhagen. With his ‘NV Auto’ debut in 2018, he made his first appearance on Glasgow label Numbers, and his second album ‘The City Rings’ was released in 2020. In 2020, he released ‘Galerie’ on Copenhagen-based record label Posh Isolation. His sound is layered with subtle chord changes, drum machines, space echoes, and live recordings, and he’s known for complex compositions and unique mixes inspired by sound art and modern dance music. As Rinse France’s monthly host, his selection and curation of guest mixes contribute to his unique brand of experimental electronic music.
2022 marks the launch of his new imprint ‘FELT’, with the inaugural release by Civilistjävel!.
“Järnnätter leans on elements of each that came before, and – for fear of sounding like a long suffering Autechre fan – it is the most accessible release to date for those who might be reading the name for the very first time”.

Perko undoubtedly represents one of my visions as a DJ and Producer. The skill of flying from one genre to another without compromises, being able to play an ambient set as well as a modern club one”
