DJ eEvil (aka Peter J. Jobst) been mixing phat tracks since he was 17 at parties and bars. He was hard core then, but when his ears first heard UK Hard House and Trance, his heart caught the beat. Through the LA club scene, eEvil learned his likes and dislikes of electronica, and has been spinning his own brand of high energy, funky, U.K. Hard House and Hard Trance since 1999. He is ClimaX-Event's chief resident, and has headlined at the Century Club in Century City, Fro bar in Santa Monica, and Spundae in Hollywood. His name is eeeeeeEvil, but his hard pump-n-beats will make you feel like you're in Heaven!

Annalee: How did you get started?

DJ eEvil: I've been into music, mixing music, and making Tapes and CD's as long as I can remember. When I was a kid, growing up in Minneapolis, I would always make mixed taped for my friends of all the party music.

So tell us a little bit about yourself and how you got started in all this.

After college I wanted to DJ so I got a job as (I'm sorry to say) a mobile DJ. I had to go out every weekend to weddings, high school dances, or company parties. It was awful. The worst music and the same routine over and over, but I did learn a lot about setting up a venue, sound systems, and most importantly what it took to get a crowd dancing. I got everyone from 90 year old grandmothers to Priests to high school girl's to break it on down.

The biggest problem I had was that I hated the music I had to play. I would always go over the top playing retro 90's dance music or a remix of Nine inch Nails "Fuck you like an animal" or something else that wasn't appropriate for a school dance. But hey, everyone was dancing.

I moved out to Los Angeles in 1995 in search of sun and fun. I got a job as a DJ one night a week and a bouncer for another 3 nights at the Oar House in Santa Monica, CA. (Now the Fro Bar). When I wasn't wrestling drunks out the front door I was the Friday Night DJ spinning Hot tracks like Brick House or Take a chance on me. Once again I found myself spinning music that everyone else liked, but I hated.

I always liked very hard music but it was it was never something I could spin a club. Everything changed when I was introduced to electronic music. I knew from the first minute that I wanted to be the biggest high energy DJ ever. I knew it was my calling and I knew.
