Jesús Vögel was one of the main promoters of new music trends, such as electro-rock, dubstep, bassline or indie-disko, when no one was betting on such proposals in the Spanish clubbing scene (before the big boom & marketing of these sound styles about 2010) and the incorporation and assessment of the figure of the VJ or video artist in the performances. His impulse to these new trends, in some part helped to refresh and oxygenate the musical panorama of southern Spain and bring some variety to the electronic scene. No being flagged of any big commercial entity, has found a place in the international scene based on hard work and an independent and honest vision of creative multi-media arts.
In early 2012 Jesús Vögel was at 3º position of the Electronic Charts of Reverbnation; a month later is selected artist to play at Red Bull Tour Bus Spain 2012.
