DJ Pandemonium started his foray into electronic music in 1996 when a good friend introduced him to such artists as Moby, The Prodigy, and Real McCoy. Never one to do what all the "cool kids" were doing, he started picking up techno CDs as fast as the artists behind Mortal Kombat would release them.
The Speed Limit 140 BPM series of CDs gave him his first taste of hardcore, and the later Happy 2b Hardcore series cemented his love for ridiculously fast, hard music. Record shops were hard to come by in his rural hometown in Oregon, so Pandemonium started buying vinyl of his favorite tracks through the internet. It wasn't long before he figured out that he needed some method of playing them, so he also picked up a couple of new-fangled turntables as well. Within a few weeks he was invited by northwest hardcore regular, Little Terror, to an exclusive happy hardcore party. It was only a matter of time before he was rocking any open decks slot he could find, scratching it up to his own special brand of hardcore.
He has now played parties up and down the west coast, held residencies with some of the northwest's most respected promoters, and shared stage time with some of the biggest names in hardcore.
