Los Angeles based DJ & Producer ‘Hot Mouth’, also known as Jon Pegnato, is one of dance music’s newest and unique additions. Funky, Techy, Dark, Happy, and Fun, are just some ways to describe his style of House. Driven by the energy of a happy crowd and smiling ears, Jon’s sets and productions aim to please his listeners. Long builds, infectious grooves, and clever baselines… Hello! His goal as an artist has always been to push the boundaries of what’s cool and what’s not coot (yet).
Formed in 2009, Hot Mouth was a project made to be creatively free of genre borders and to be an outlet to do and make what ever he wanted. The name ‘Hot Mouth’ means nothing, as it shouldn’t…the name was choose because ‘Deadmau5’ & ‘Skrillex’ were already taken. The music means everything.
As former 1/2 of LA Riots, Jon has remixed for some of the world’s biggest pop and dance artists, from Lady Gaga to Tiesto, to Steve Aoki. As LA Riots, Jon played around the world, rocking crowds at festivals like Electric Daisy Carnival, Ultra, & Lollapalooza, as well as played some of the worlds biggest night clubs. In addition to being voted by Beatport as one of 2010’s top artists to look out for, the group was also nominated in 2011 as American’s top DJ. Over the years Jon’s music has gained successful notoriety, with millions of youtube plays, support BBC’s Radio 1, and support from top DJs around the world.
2011 was cool, but 2012 will be even cooler.
