Jason Horvath is an American Progressive House DJ. He’s been active in smaller clubs in Colorado since early 2007 particularly in and around the city of Boulder, Colorado. Growing up Jason learned to play several instruments but it was the computer that eventually stole his heart. Teaching himself several audio software programs he quickly brought forth his true musical talent. Under the name ‘Venaccio’ he signed his first set of EPs to System Recordings in early 2008. The release was the 4 song EP entitled "Forever Today," which includes the single of the same name. Although his music is most commonly classified as Progressive House, his musical style has shown a heavy trance and electro influence.
Nearing the end of 2008 Venaccio had the chance to work with Wippenberg on a remix to his trance anthem ‘Chakalaka.’ This breakthrough release came December 2, 2008 through High Contrast Recordings and Tiësto quickly supported the track on his Club Life 092 podcast. Following the success of the Chakalaka remix Venaccio released ‘Night Sky’ and ‘Day to Day’ on Jason Jollin’s label Acute Recordings. Continuing with his progressive trance style and after countless times of listening to Da Fresh’s ‘Yesterday,’ Venaccio created a more progressive remix that was warmly welcomed by artists Greg Cerrone and Bastien Sera. In early 2009 the Da Fresh – Yesterday remix was officially released on Electronic Elements (Armada).
Continuing his work with Armada, Venaccio quickly took the stems from Blake Jarrell's Boracay and formed a more progressive approach to the song. With its release on Armada in the fall of 2009 the remix has since been played on Armin van Buuren's 'A State of Trance' 415 along with Markus Schulz's Global DJ Broadcast August 13, 2009. Through Beatport’s online remix contests Venaccio was able to refocus on the fundamental structure of his sound and create many innovative and unique melodies that has distinguished him from other artists. Franz Ferdinand - Ulysses (Venaccio remix) is one example of Venaccio’s distinct sounds, which was found by Tiësto and played internationally on his radio show Club Life 131.
Peter Kim started playing the piano at the age of three years old in Long Beach, CA, and he quickly showed progress playing Fur Elise and Rondo Alla Turka by the age of five. He moved to Colorado and successfully competed in many of the local piano competitions in the state. Peter later went on to win the State Competition (Colorado State Music Teachers Association) at the age of 14. He auditioned and was accepted at The Juilliard School/Hochschule fur Musik International Piano Festival in Leipzig, Germany where he was one of two high school students in attendance, among 16 of the best pianists from all around the globe. During his time in Germany Peter studied with Bruce Brubaker, a professor at Juilliard who later asked him to audition at The Juilliard School, but after a month of intense practicing and studying, Peter realized that the formal life of a concert pianist wasn’t for him and told Bruce he had a new goal, one that he was perfectly suited for: to make his own music. Peter moved back and forth from Colorado to California for the next few years with the intention of pursuing his dreams all the while maturing with the highs and lows of real life. After working countless jobs Peter landed in Colorado and teamed up with his best friend from high school who was already an established producer.
As their first collaboration, the two artists completed a bootleg remix to Muse - Starlight. The project rendered more than successful results as if it was a sign of what’s to come from these talented musical collaborators. Under the name Venaccio, the two began their musical career in the basement of a home in Denver, CO mid 2009. Immediately aiming for the top spots, Venaccio completed several successful remixes of which Tiësto - Louder Than Boom (Venaccio remix) was quickly noticed and played by the man himself on the same internationally renowned radio show Club Life 133. Within the same week “Our Anthem” and “Twilight” were signed to Black Hole Recordings and set for a release date early 2010.
The team of Venaccio has exciting and innovative plans to help shape the future of electronic music. With video production experience, and live instrument performance the two promise to deliver electrifying music and a whole new live show experience.
