1994 – 2007
Growing up in a family with a profound love for music, it was inevitable that Jeffrey Sutorius’s path would lead here. His late dad who was a distinguished drummer in a jazz band taught him how to play drums at a young age. When he was a teenager his sister started introducing him to electronic music. From that moment on he developed his innovative style of mixing and producing. Soon he began hitting turntables and performing under the aliases Toxic and Jeff Bounce in clubs, house parties but also in different festivals. He played twice at the Loveparade and three times at Defqon 1 under these aliases.
