Colorado native Joman first began producing electronic music at the age of 13, well before Denver became known as the home of Beatport, and DJs (including Joman himself) started taking center stage at the world-famous Red Rocks Amphitheatre.
With no formal musical background and completely self-taught for most of his career, Joman's love affair with electronic music has been anything but brief, spanning over 17 years and nearly 100 Beatport releases. But it wouldn't be until an official remix for Progressive House legend Adam K, a top-10 spot in a massive deadmau5 remix competition, and a viral video by the name of "Daymanstep" that Joman would begin to make waves on a global scale. Right around the time that the Mayans predicted the end of the world, Joman went from virtually anonymous to winning the EDC Vegas Discovery Project contest, having his collaboration with Lea Luna, "High Fidelity" make the #1 spot on Beatport's Pulse charts, garnering millions of views on his Youtube videos, and sharing the stage with some of the biggest names in dance music, including the Crystal Method, Wolfgang Gardner, Gabriel & Dresden, ATB and many more. And that spur-of-the-moment remix, "Daymanstep?" It made Adult Swim's "Top 10 Internet Trends" list, found its way onto the official "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" social media accounts, and even received praise from the cast members themselves.
There are other honorable mentions as well, such as Joman's remix of Celldweller's "Best It's Gonna Get" with J. Scott G. ending up in the CBS series, "How I Met Your Mother," and his original, "Welcome to the House" making a brief appearance in Fox's, "Rosewood." "High Fidelity" with Lea Luna found its way into an episode of "Orphan Black," and an official remix for the Denver Nuggets was blasted before all-star games at the Pepsi Center. But if you ask Joman what his favorite random achievement has been up to this point, he'll tell you it has been getting to work with the chart-topping 80's band, "Animotion." After receiving praise from Rockstar Games for his remix of Animotion's hit song, "Obsession" that was featured in the soundtrack of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Joman managed to catch the attention of Animotion frontman Bill Wadhams, resulting in a collaborative effort between Joman and Animotion on the band's brand new album, "Raise Your Expectations." The title track, produced by Joman and Wadhams, quickly found its way into the soundtrack for the Netflix series, "Wet Hot American Summer."
With more remixes and original releases in the pipes, Joman is continuing to follow a catchphrase he coined a long, long time ago; "the only ways to fail are to give up, or die."
