Hot mouth was born in 2008, the brain child of LA native, Jon Pegnato. He began producing what is best described as funky, techy, fun, electro house. In 2009 he began releasing original tracks, collaborations and remixes as Hot Mouth on InStereo Recordings, Simma, Play Me, PBR and Dirty Fabric and gained several Beatport Top 10 hits that year.
Due to the success of his Hot Mouth production work he was asked collaborate with and ultimately, join LA Riots late in 2009. As 1/2 of LA Riots he has remixed for some of the world’s biggest pop and dance artists from Lady Gaga to Tiesto to Steve Aoki. As LA Riots, Jon played around the world, rocking crowds at festivals like Electric Daisy Carnival, Ultra, & Lollapalooza, as well as played some of the worlds biggest night clubs across the globe. In addition to being voted by Beatport as one of 2010’s top artists to look out for, the group was also nominated in 2011 as America’s top DJ. Over the years Jon’s music has gained successful notoriety, with millions of youtube plays, support BBC’s Radio 1, and support from top DJs around the world.
After 3 years of the mega-successful LA Riots project, Jon has returned to Hot Mouth, his labor of love, to continue developing the sound he created years ago. Driven by the energy of a happy crowd and smiling ears, Jon’s sets and productions aim to please his listeners. Long builds, infectious grooves, and clever baselines. His goal as an artist has always been to push the boundaries of what’s cool and what’s not coot (yet).
Hot Mouth’s first release on Chris Lake’s label, Rising Music was his EP ‘Habits’ consisting of two club worthy belters, ‘Good Habits’ & ‘Bad Habits’.
