Jessmar hails from the desert valley of Tucson, AZ. He emerged in Arizona dance music culture in 2001 and has been DJing ever since.Through the years, he has managed to establish his persona on the decks as one of the southwest's underground pioneers.
His sound is heavily influenced by the likes of John Digweed, Sasha, Quivver, Nick Warren, Danny Howells, Umek, Danny Tenaglia and Hybrid (to name a few), though Jessmar also allows his love for all types of music (house, trance,breakbeats especially rock and 90's era rap) to shine through in his sound. Which when combined with his technically sound set programming and seamless mixing, delivers a sound unlike any other AZ local.
He plays "progressive house" but of his own sort. His personality comes booming through the sound system, delivering pounding percussive progressions, groove driven bass lines fused with beautiful and haunting dark melodies to ears and minds who stand close by enough to hear him play.
Recently, he has been producing and co-producing original tunes, as well as remixes in hope that the world outside AZ will embrace his music and his passion as an artist. He is one half of the DJ/Producer duo known as Hades 2 along with his brother Jeff Romea, and has 2 solo tracks "Slide to Slide" and "Far East Feelings" which have been signed and are pending release as well as "Street Sweeper" and "The Horsemen" 2 produced under the Hades 2 moniker.
