Joseph Espinoza aka Jesp is an American musician and electronic music producer based out of Miami, FL. Born and raised in the Magic City, Jesp is no stranger to the depths of musical harmony and sound design, as well as live performance.

Late that year, his dark pop track "It's About Time" was well received by listeners in over 40 countries, who helped push the song to #13 on Hype Machine's Twitter Charts. He closed the year with a colossal hometown performance during Miami's famed Art Basel featuring headliners Theophilus London and Rye Rye.
In 2011, Jesp signed with Victorious Management and put the finishing touches to his follow-up EP, Step Into the Dark, featuring club banger singles such as "11:11."Embracing the performance Dj platform Jesp slowly transitioned from a live singer into an edm phenomenon. He also began to collaborate and experiment with different artists, such as friend and raw talent Lauren Wolfe with whom he crafted the acclaimed track ‘Sharks & Mermaids (Eat My Heart)’.
