Buying his first turntables in 1998, Jason Soesman became interested in playing vinyl after playing at a friend’s house for the first time. It was there and then where his journey began. Getting his hands on Richie Hawtin: Decks, EFX & 909 in the year 2000 there was no turning back.
Summer of ’04: it was time for a change. Jason decided, together with the three afore mentioned friend...s, to combine DJ’ing with live elements. It was the first stage of creating of their very own live-act: Jason & the Argonauts, taking up all available time and a lot of effort.
Within two years since their great investment, they’ve developed themselves into one of the key Minimal acts in the Netherlands. Next to their appearances at stages like Voltt, Mono, Phonocult, Rockit, Less=More the four also acquired a residency at the Magnetronik-nights held at Club Poema.
Although heavily committed to the live-act, Jason is still discovering new ways to expressing himself through playing hisvinyls. Jason Shae’s DJ sets can be described as French Funk, Chicago House with a hint of Berlin stripped down house. Due to the use of Serato he can easily combine material from the boys of Jason & the Argonauts with records from other artists.
Pete Bandit started DJ'ing fourteen years ago, in 1995 to be exact. Most of the other artists in the SQUZ agency actually learned how to read in that same year, but that's a whole different story. Pete's experience with music, both playing and producing it, is unprecedented.
As a producer Pete Bandit has also been quite succesfull so far; being part of the Le Chien Perdu and Jason & The Argonauts producer teams, Pete has released on several national and international labels, with a lot more to come. Lately Pete has been in the studio with multiple projects, including with Jason & The Argonauts member Jason Shae. This latest project seem to work out great again and we can't wait untill the first release will hit the shelves.
Pete Bandit's fame as a DJ is growing larger gig by gig. Stealing the heart of every partyfreak, bassaddict and musiclover with a great, steady, rocking groove that takes us back to the Chicago, Miami and New York sounds from back in the days. Of course, he isn't just copying, he is reinventing...
