MOAI Platform Europe welcomes John Jumar

 

Born in 1981, Madrid, my passion for electronic music starts since I was a child when I listen to bands like Front 242, Krafwert, Frankies Goes to Hollywood or Peter Murphy, among others.
When I was only 12 years old I started mixing with vinyls, a hard and constant work that made me find the style of music I wanted at that moment.
I started to combine my studies and work in the legendary music shop Discoplay for more than 10 years, acquiring a lot of knowledge about the music industry.
In 2002 I was a finalist in the radio contest “Terapia Techno”, where I started to play my first sets in important venues in Madrid such as Van-Vas, Specka, Arena, La Rivera, Ya’sta, Siroco, among others.
Shortly after, I studied a Higher Degree in Sound and Music to broaden my knowledge and to be able to turn my hobby into a job that I am passionate about.
In 2004 I created my first collective “Sound Concept” together with my partner Humat where we did events in Madrid and surroundings with parties of more than a thousand people.
Since then, I started to make sets all over Spain, with a very melodic House and Tech-House style, long mixes, taking care of the equalization and with a lot of rhythm.
In 2006 I was invited to the studios of Radio Loca Fm to perform a live set in the program “El After” directed by Carlos Perona.
Between 2006 and 2008, due to a change of residence, I managed to make a space for myself as a resident in the Sala Oasis in Don Benito, Badajoz.
Between 2013 and 2015 I made my own radio show “The Face of the House” in an On-Line radio station called Diamante Radio, where I talk about the beginnings of House, presentation of mythical tracks, interviews to artists of the moment in the capital and live sessions.
Nowadays I still take my Sets in Afterwork time to all the corners of Madrid, working for the group La Máquina in their different venues in Madrid and La Moraleja, Hard Rock Café, Ramses, The Chapel, and in the best Sky Bars in Madrid such as Casa Suecia, Hyatt, Ginkgo, 360º RIU.
Nowadays I continue my training, without leaving behind the production of electronic music in “Enjoy It Studios” with Julio Posadas.
