ONDREJ is an international Dj and label head of KUMQUAT rec. from Switzerland. Originating from Prague (Czech Rep.) but considering himself as “a son of Zurich: Mecca of clubbing and source of inspiration”. When Switzerland swept up in the first techno-wave in the 90s, Ondrej took his first steps at mixing. Soon he was noticed by most important promoters of Switzerland and has performed in spectacular festivals.
Renowned by his impeccable technique of mixing, which keeps a constant tension in the dance floor, Ondrej is an obsessive researcher of new sound and every set is a varied expression: atmospheric or hypnotic, deep or sensitive upon his mood: but unique ones, without rules or limits. Indeed a set of Ondrej is an amalgam of House and Techno varying the genres upon the times: tech-house, minimal, dub –techno.
KUMQUAT is an imprint of the formerly worldwide known KumQuat Tunes label. It is part of a group of brands together with KumQuat Bookings agency and Triphaseproject (media & design agency) all successful projects implemented by Ondrej.
