His first moves towards making music of his own began in 1989 with an Amiga500 computer connected to a portable keyboard (the Yamaha PSR-3500 for you techies). Still, tape recordings of his first overdubs done with two ghetto blasters exist. Still being a student at school in 1994, he got to know Len Faki aka DJ Lamonde, who should be his mate for the coming years. The two made music every day and when Jost was about to pass his a-levels, he already had brought out several 12" records. He did not study but went even deeper into music.
Together with Len, he produced quite a pile of maxi singles, albums and remixes. In 1997, the two founded the label monoid with a focus on groovy Techno stuff and shortly after, they also brought the label [feis] to birth. Both of them went famous among those who know and monoid, though it is run by Alex Flatner today, is still releasing stuff. In 2001, UCMG, the company that held labels like monoid, [feis], Plastic City and many others went broke. The time was right to get pesto started.
