Since it's fireside conception in 2007, Hobotech has steadily grown in popularity, with Jon's recent schedule including an appearance at Coachella, an opening set for Bassnectar with collaborator Haj (Sub Swara), and shows which have found him sharing the stage with luminaries of bass music including ill.Gates, David Starfire and AN-TEN-NAE.
The EP "This Is The Place" was described as "like George Clinton meets Datsik" on BassGeneration.com, and was included as a featured download in the 2010 wrapup newsletter from TheUntz.com.
Hobotech is the sound of ozark mountain futurefunk, dirty electro gospel, and glitched out whomp crashing into delta blues. Hobotech is a place where Tom Waits wreck subwoofers and Ralph Stanley gets his crunk on. It's contemporary music that nods to a forgotten America, celebrating half-smoked cigars and railside cauldrons of stew.

He presents classes and workshops around the country, teaches for cutting-edge music school Dubspot and is an Adjunct Instructor at New York University.
