My name is Fomentum and I’m a DJ & Producer from Austin, Texas. My roots in music stem back to early childhood, growing up in a family that loves music just as much as they do dancing— it’s my goal to bring that same energy to both the tracks I produce and the sets I play.
At the age of 10, bass guitar in hand, I learned how to bring the funk and follow the kick drum. As I grew older, I added more genres to my arsenal with formal jazz training and contemporary rock influences. During college, I took a hiatus from playing bass and was heavily exposed to both hip hop and electronic dance music for the first time—eventually attending my first music festival, Electric Forest, the summer before I graduated.
I was first captivated by DJs I saw spinning tracks and running the dance floor at college parties, so seeing big time acts perform breathtaking sets in the Michigan woods put me over the edge. Since then, I’ve been enthralled—working as hard as I can to hone my production skills and DJ chops.
I’m excited for the future. The best is yet to come. For now, it’s my hope to share all of the best music I can find and to make tracks that provide the same emotional connection that first drew me into the scene.
