An accomplished producer, in-demand remixer and versatile performer, he has fast transitioned from Buenos Aires’ best-kept secret to one of contemporary house and techno’s leading lights, on a par with genre-defying luminaries such as Levon Vincent, Ben Klock, Marcel Dettman and Ryan Elliot.
Jonas’ music career began early on; by 19 years old he had made his first full length CD under the name of Area 64 whilst working as resident DJ at a popular FM radio station. In 2006 he made his debut proper on Pfirter’s MindTrip Music imprint, and has been flirting with a myriad of styles ever since. But whether it’s deep Chicago-inspired house (Curle), or driving basement-ready techno (Stroboscopic Artefacts, Krill Music, Ostgut Ton), cavernous basslines and mesmerising rhythms flavour his eclectic discography throughout. It is this distinct and powerful signature that make records like ‘Reforce’—his first four track EP for Deeply Rooted House, and most diverse yet—possible. Where the surging and the abstract, the uplifting and the slow-burner all find themselves side-by-side.
