DJ Jes | Behind the Beats

Born in Mexico and raised in Chicago, Jes has been exposed to the Chicago music culture since the early 80’s. It was very early on when Jes realized his passion for music and began working on his musical career. Growing up on the West side of Chicago, Jes saw his peers choosing a lifestyle of gangs and guns with daily activity of violence. It was then that Jes decided to lead a life of musical expression and lift himself to a higher state of being. Embracing his negative childhood exposure, Jes used that negative to propel his dreams and to fuel his drive to succeed. Fifteen years later, Jes is still continuing his path of musical creativity and has evolved into a professional dj, producer, and business owner. His passion for music still burns bright within. The Chicago underground has been moved by Jes for over twenty five years and he has emerged as a leading dj, producer, and remixer. Jes is an original house pioneer that continues to be an integral part of the underground electronic scene.
