It wasn’t long ago when Jon Pegnato made up half of LA Riots, but now, he has embarked on a solo mission under the Hot Mouth moniker, bringing Electro and House to the masses. In the past couple of months, Hot Mouth has been busy. Besides signing with Liaison Artists and playing at the Palms in Vegas every week, he’s been working on collaborations with Felix Cartal, Nom De Strip, TJR, and more, as well as putting together a monthly mix series for our lucky ears here at GDD™. Now, it is time for Hot Mouth to make his VS debut at The Central in Santa Monica, and we couldn’t be more excited. Support on the night will come from SF’s Realboy, Gojira, and Check&Mate.
Jon Pegnato, known to the dance music community as Hot Mouth, is a class act. After a recent separation with LA Riots toward the end of 2011, Jon breathed life back into his solo project and pumped air into his blow-up doll — ready to take on 2012. After just signing a residency at Moon at the Palms in Vegas, joining up with George Karalexis and Faux Entertainment, and becoming a member of the Liaison Artists family only in the past month, I felt the urge to catch up with Jon and hear all about the plans for Hot Mouth.
Read on after the jump to hear about the Hot Mouth ethos, Jon’s perfect Coachella lineup, upcoming collaborations, and the first edition of Hot Mouth mixtapes exclusive to GDD™. Continue Reading
