Since 1994, Jon Lee has been buying records and establishing himself in the Seattle and Vancouver house music scenes as a regular behind the decks. Back in 1996, Jon founded Concepts Records, which became one of the front running sources for dance music in the northwest. In that same year, he also helped establish Vinylized, an 18+ over club that helped cement him as one of Seattle’s favorite DJs. From then on, he never looked back.
After selling Concepts Records in 1999, Jon along with partner Brent Laurence started Tilted Records, a prominent west coast house label. Tilted Records have over 30 releases by artists such as Wesley Holmes, Miguel Migs, Marques Wyatt, Julias Papp, Jay J, and many others. Since then, Jon’s DJing career has been in full swing. He has traveled to Barcelona, Hawaii, Miami, New York, Portland, San Francisco, San Diego, and L.A. and has become a mainstay in the Vancouver and Seattle dance music scenes. Jon has 2 new residencies in Seattle at The See Sound Lounge, and The Last Supper Club, where he can be seen on a regular basis. He has also been in the studio as of late making some new music with Corey Baker out of the U.k. and with Josh Quest, and Johnny Fever, under the guise Westside Legacy. Current releases are featured on such labels as Bass Boxx Digital, Clocktower Records, Temple Music Group, and Anadamide Records.
Hailing from Seattle, Washington, Josh Quest has been involved with music since a very young age. With his father a guitarist in a band and his mother doing their lights, Josh would soon come to realize his passion for music. In 1995, Josh Quest started promoting his own parties called H.A.B.I.T. with another aspiring DJ and long time friend, DJ Rein. Bringing their favorite artists such as Sasha, Rabbit in the Moon, Wicked DJ’s, DJ Dan, Donald Glaude, Keoki, DJ Icey, Mark Farina, Derrick Carter, Deelite, Dubtribe & Crystal Method just to name a few. H.A.B.I.T. parties would give them the opportunity to showcase their skills beside some of their favorite artist’s and DJ’s. Deeply inspired by this music and the San Francisco’s rave scene, Josh Quest would set the path for what would now be known as Seattle’s underground house scene.
DJing and producing tracks now for over a decade, Josh has traveled throughout most of the continent spinning at clubs and parties with his techy-electro house sound. Recently playing shows along side big names such as David Guetta, LMFAO, Kaskade, Morgan Page, A-Trak, Serge Devant, Hatiras, Static Revenger, Cedric Gervais, Classixx & Funkagenda. Josh Quest’s uncompromising style and innovation show no sign of slowing down any time soon. Josh has already had multiple releases on such labels as Temple Music Group, Bass Boxx Records, Anadamide Records, Tilted Records, Relapse Recordings, Redhanded Records, and Uhuru Beats.
While DJing full time & working in the studio with the Westside Legacy crew (Jon Lee, Johnny Fever), Aj Sorbello & The Fender Fable, Josh Quest has finally made his mark in the electronic music scene. Through this direction and hard work in the studio he has definitely become a force to be reckoned with. Be sure to keep your eyes out for one of Seattle’s premier electro DJ’s.
