There are plenty of DJs in the industry who isolate themselves to one style whereas Jon Lockley has the ability to deliver sets from various genres. His original style and finesse behind the decks has been revolutionizing the elements of electronic music for over a decade. In his sets, Lockley flawlessly merges the sounds of bass heavy break beats with progressive melodic house so easily and so fluidly that his peers are left in awe. His unique style and immaculate technique places him in a category alongside the industry’s elite. Not only does he captivate crowds with his powerful sets, but he also lays down his own original production work to separate himself from the rest of the pack. His sets and his tracks achieve their goal — to make people dance. His passion for music certainly seems to be the key to his longevity. Having played at venues across the globe, his name has become synonymous with electronic music.

He has been a DJ/Producer since the early 2000s. Currently, he resides in Korea and plays in venues big and small. In late 2008, he got his start DJing in Busan, Korea at one of the first underground DJ venues, Vinyl Underground. Soon after, he was playing in Gwangju, Jeju Island, Busan, and Seoul. His journey has taken him to many places throughout the country and the world.
In addition, when his productions started generating buzz in the underground community, people like Coach Roebuck (USA) and DJ R.E.D (USA) advised him to start releasing his tracks. His first EP, "They Got to Have It" dropped on Round House Records in 2011. This EP also helped launch the career of Disco Ball'z (Hungary). Soon B.Jinx was releasing tracks that caught the attention of quite a few folks in the scene, such as Andrew Macari, Marc Castley aka Gussy, and Tommy Largo.As a result he scored multiple top 100 tracks on Stompy, Traxsource, and Juno. 2012 was a breakout year for B.Jinx and hopefully he will continue that success on into the future.

Aron Freitag, (USA)
A true product of the 1980's early electronic music, Aron Freitag grew up in Alaska & Washington state listening to chords from new-wave synthesizers and keytars. Strongly involved in music throughout his life, he was influenced by his father's taste for Alan Parsons Project, Electric Light Orchestra, Talking Heads, and Gary Numan's latest catchy video on MTV. Aron enjoyed playing several instruments in the school band, experimenting with Yamaha wind synthesizers and composing big band jazz arrangements in his head before his friend introduced him to Prodigy's Fat of the Land album in 1997. The seed of electronica had been planted, but it would be another 3 years before meeting another friend that would introduce him to the wonderful new world of dance clubs in the Hongdae region of Seoul. As a bedroom DJ for the past 13 years, Aron's varied musical tastes can briefly be described as "anything with a good bass line."
