Jon Ojeda (aka alias_j) is a San Francisco based DJ and electronic music producer. After a number of years in development, this solo artist effort is a culmination of his ever-growing love affair with electronic music and all things club.
He attended his first rave in 1992, which started a trajectory quite familiar to anyone bit by the bug. While attending college in San Diego, he was gifted his first set of turntables by his then girlfriend. After graduation, he moved back to the bay as a punter, frequenting the legendary and world-renowned Nikita and Spundae club nights at 1015 Folsom. Their parties were magical, hosting anyone who was anyone from around the world. He was determined to get involved.
Passing his demos around town, he caught the attention of Spundae Productions. On a whim, there was a DJ cancellation and they asked him to fill him. That evening began a long relationship with the crew where he eventually co-owned and managed the Spundae Reckords shop, handled A&R and Distribution for the Spundae Recordings label, and held his Spundae residency for several years, playing at their many club nights and events in Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, Seattle, Chicago, and Miami. The series of endeavors led him on DJ tours across Europe to the UK, Ireland, Netherlands, Poland, and Russia.
He began his early years in the studio co-writing under the monikers "Suffix" with long time friend Dough Eisengrein, and "Cojac" with his later Omnis Recordings label mates Al Manning and Christian Boshell.
Launched in 2005, Omnis Recordings was a household name, releasing nearly 80 house, techno, and progressive singles, EPs, and albums until the label went on hiatus in 2016. During that time, Jon evolved as a producer, writing solo only in fitz-and-starts. His recent collaboration with Christian Boshell under the pseudonym "Boxrocker" has seen the release and success of numerous tracks, and although the world went into lockdown at the beginning of 2020, they've been streaming live, hosing their own sets, as well as streaming for Technoscene On Air and in AltspaeVR for Decadent Oasis's Burning Man camp. They've also rekindled Omnis Recordings, releasing their newest Boxrocker single, "Heal" on Beatport.
