Hot mouth was born in 2008, the brain child of Jon Pegnato who began producing what is best described as funky, techy, fun, electro house. In 2009 he began releasing original tracks, collaborations and remixes on InStereo Recordings, Simma, Play Me, PBR and Dirty Fabric and gained several Beatport Top 10 hits that year.
Due to the success of his Hot Mouth production work he was asked collaborate with and ultimately, join LA Riots late in 2009. As 1/2 of LA Riots he has remixed for some of the world's biggest pop and dance artists from Lady Gaga to Tiesto to Steve Aoki. As LA Riots, Jon played around the world, rocking crowds at festivals like Electric Daisy Carnival, Ultra, & Lollapalooza, as well as played some of the worlds biggest night clubs across the globe. In addition to being voted by Beatport as one of 2010's top artists to look out for, the group was also nominated in 2011 as America's top DJ. Over the years Jon's music has gained successful notoriety, with millions of youtube plays, support BBC's Radio 1, and support from top DJs around the world.
After 3 years of the mega-successful LA Riots project, Jon has returned to Hot Mouth, his labor of love, to continue developing the sound he created years ago. Hot Mouth's first release on Chris Lake's label, Rising Music was his EP 'Habits' consisting of two club worthy belters, both infused with techy drums and undulating bass lines. His sophomore release on Rising Music available in June, 'Totally Worth It' is a bouncy big room banger, with a killer vocal featuring Chris James. Out now, is his remix of Sebastien Drum’s track “French Rules”, Hot Mouth takes Sebastien’s creation and adds a truly original spin. Jackin’ kicks & snares and fidgety synth sounds, merge with Niles Mason’s soulful vocals to make a dancefloor-ready club smasher.
