Jon Paul Davies was an electronic and house musician under numerous aliases during the 1990s,. One of his many aliases was Deejay Punk Roc in 1997. According to the official biography for Deejay Punk-Roc, which was apparently invented by the record label and Davies, When playing live Punk Roc was often fronted by a black DJ by the name of Charles Gettis, an ex military serviceman from Brooklyn, New York whom had been drafted into the Army at 16 and had dj'ed in block parties before later residing in Toxteth, Liverpool. Davies never appeared in photos to amplify the mystery of who produced the music. The first DJPR release was the track "My Beatbox" (later featured on the PS1 game Thrasher: Skate and Destroy) in 1997 on Davies's own record label - Airdog, on a compilation titled Still Searchin' - A Collection Of Speaker Poppin' Electro Beats. Deejay Punk-Roc's debut album Chickeneye followed in 1998, which was met with rave reviews from press such as Vibe and listeners alike. During this he was a prolific remixer for popular nu metal and electronic artists alike. He produced remixes for many artists of the day including Mantronix, The Beastie Boys, Moby and Pitchshifter.
The project was later used for remixes for various artists, including a DJ mix for Mixmag magazine, and DJing at music festivals throughout 1999. A second album, Spoiling It For Everyone, was released in 2000, with more hip hop and house influences and with vocals from A.K.P. (All Knew Program), Austin Cole, NZE, Kay-Dee-Kay and 'Choo Choo' Morales. A compilation of remixes and b-sides entitled Thrift Store Classics followed before DJ Punk Roc was discontinued.
Davies later released music as Trinity Hi-Fi, a trip hop/house collaboration of other artists. He also had many UK Dance Chart successes under various pseudonyms including Player One and Spork. After Davies left the music industry he became technical director of many successful technology business.
