Straight out of the heart of Los Angeles, California – DJ Jounce is making some serious noise in the Electronic Dance Music scene with his unique blend of electro house and progressive house. Jounce started off 2013 with a 3 week tour of Asia and DJ’d in Hong Kong, Seoul, S. Korea, Tokyo, Japan, Bangkok, Thailand and Hanoi, Vietnam.

Jounce began writing and performing music in grade school. In 2006, Jounce graduated at the top of his class from the Recording Institute of Technology (RIT) at the Musicians Institute in Hollywood, CA. He plays guitar, piano & bass and claims to sing exceptionally well in the shower. As a songwriter, musician and producer, Jounce says “Music is my life and there’s nothing else I’d rather be doing. It won’t end until I get to share this beautiful madness in my head with the world. Get your earful now!” Jounce’s latest track, Vs. Doppelganger, is scheduled for release in 2013 along with remixes by Blake Jarrell, Donald Glaude, Rockwell No!ze, Omar Santana and The Phoenix Vision.
In 2011, Jounce recorded his debut CD “Temporal Ascent”, which was released on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and all major digital distribution channels. Two tracks from “Temporal Ascent” were signed to the official Rock Band video game platform and are now available to the public: “Ooh La La” feat. Sherryce and “I Gotchu Babe” feat. Rachel Lynn Sebastian. “Ooh La La” was also included on the official Winter Music Conference 2012 Compilation CD and had a music video filmed. His CD has received critical acclaim from reviewers and fans alike. “Not many minds would be able to piece together the beats that Jounce has and certainly not in the style that he has arranged them. His talents are second to none and Jounce is a mastermind when it comes to dance music,” declared Ryo Vie of “The Rock N Roll Guru”.
