Robert Jager was originally personified by a college roommate as Bobby Digital when he began to mix music for college parties in Seattle, Washington. In 2007, an associate of a local recording studio heard some of the music that was being played and began inquiring as to who was behind it. "I remember one of the guys in our house, Mike Martin, came rushing up to me saying some guy was asking about the music and I told him it was you (who made it)". The very next week a meeting at the studio was scheduled. "The studio owner was a really nice guy. But he was also very serious. He played quite a few tracks that he wrote and/or performed. Then he asked me what I thought about them. I told him they were all a mistake. I was waiting for him to kick me outta there when he told me, "You're the guy we want. Every one of those tracks that were played were off the mark." It was a great compliment, but my brother saw things more clearly and told me to decline the offer and finish school first. Later on Robert began battling with major depression, and any notable musical progress wasn't outwardly apparent. "Depression is obviously an emotional thing. I'd like to think that my inspiration to start mixing music again was done out of joy, but it really wasn't. I learned in a pretty primitive way how pain and fear have power that you can use to change your thinking. My darkest days had a purpose. So with all the good and all the bad, I don't regret anything."
