Jon Hester got his start in the midwest US, living in Chicago, Minneapolis, and connecting with Detroit. His intuition as a DJ taps his experience as a classically-trained musician and self-taught dancer. After years on the dance floor, he took to the decks in 1999, going on to work in a record shop, manage his own events, and hold residencies that developed his sound. Now based in Berlin as A&R for EDEC, he continues to sharpen his skills as a producer. Drawing inspiration from both sides of the decks, his DJ sets are built on physical rhythms and adventurous programming, effortlessly combining diverse varieties of techno and house. With an engaging presence and a knack for telling a story, he builds a unique connection with each audience, and works any room until it sweats.
