Jensen started his career as a drummer in the Detroit scene of the ’80s, and he soon moved toward house music, influenced by the pioneers of the genre such as Frankie Knuckles, Steve “Silk” Hurley, Louie Vega and Larry Heard. He made a name for himself DJing at L’uomo, and around ten years later, he launched Fathom Records label.
