Hoj is a rising force with a distinct sound that is gaining momentum. He derives inspiration from everywhere, taking his sultry blend of tech-house to crowds around the world. He grew up int he underground San Francisco dance music community, getting an early education in the culture. In 1998 he stepped behind the decks, beginning a DJ career that has taken him across the US and abroad.
Hoj has been based in New York City since 2008. His west coast residencies and affiliations with Opel Productions, Spundae, and Looq Records keep him a truly bi-coastal citizen. His current residency with Listed Productions keeps him busy with events and festivals around the globe. He has played premier events at the DEMF (Detroit Electronic Music Festival), BPM Festival in Mexico, the Winter Music conference in Miami and others. He was a founding member of the Opulent Temple, one of the largest sound camps at the Burning Man Festival, and he returns to play there annually.
He has toured the country and the globe, continuing to play alongside the world’s top talent across the US, South America, Central America, French Polynesia, and Europe. In 2011, Hoj made his European debut at the Panorama Bar in Berlin.
Hoj’s new production project, called “Tramp”, keeps him busy tinkering with both audio and visual elements in the studio.
