ABOUT JOHN TEJADA:
John Tejada is one of the most prolific and consistent producers in today’s electronic music landscape. Trained on drums and piano from an early age, the LA-based Tejada has since amassed an impressive skill set, expanding on his resume as a techno recording artist, as producer, remixer, DJ, and label owner. Known for crafting a brand of subtle, musical techno, his recorded output ranges across tempo and genre lines, from chilled out affairs with spacious arrangements to pulsating, densely layered, deeply energetic tracks popular in clubs and with fans worldwide. Raised in Vienna and Los Angeles by professional classical musician parents, Tejada’s interest in DJing and production began with the rise of early 80’s hip-hop music. As his style shifted to electronic music, he created and collaborated on a successful catalog of productions. Tejada’s rise continues with full-length albums and dozens of singles and remixes to his credit on numerous labels including his own, Palette Recordings.
Tejada has performed in more than 30 countries and at festivals including Movement (formerly The Detroit Electronic Music Festival), Sonar Festival (in Spain and Tokyo), Dance Valley (Netherlands), Sync Festival (Greece), Mutek Mexico, as well as internationally known spaces such as Fabric (London), Yellow (Tokyo), Rex Club (Paris), and The Walt Disney Concert Hall (Los Angeles), along with international appearances with classical jazz guitarist Takeshi Nishimoto on the duo’s critically acclaimed project “I’m Not A Gun.”
