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
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
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.
