From 2006 to 2009 he owned and operated Heaven nightclub in Ottawa, Canada. 2010 marked his return to the studio with a heavy dose of upfront remixes and original productions. In January 2012, leading British music site, said "Martin is one of the most exciting new producers of the last 12 months". Present monthly residencies include Sotto in Ottawa, Circus in Montreal and New City also in Montreal. Keep your eyes out for forthcoming productions in 2014 on Vamos, Housesession & others.



Launched in 2013, Return of the Jaded rapidly made a lasting impression upon the aficionados of deep, quality underground house music. 

Jaded with the existing state of affairs in the world of electronic music at the time, Zoltan Kontes created ROTJ as a counterculture movement with a desire to offer a fresh alternative to current trends.

No less than 8 of his productions have charted in the top 100 on Beatport. Further releases on Relief, Suara, Kittball and well received remixes on Enormous Tunes are a testament to the critical appreciation he has received in such a short time.

A plethora of respected DJ’s have been dropping ROTJ tracks in their sets namely the likes of Green Velvet, Pete Tong, Danny Howard, Tube & Berger, Franky Rizardo, Manuel De La Mare, Boy George, Tocadisco, Gorgon City, amongst others.

He presently hosts a monthly boiler-room type event in his hometown of Ottawa, Canada called Sunday Sessions.

ROTJ is also busy in the studio concocting new original productions that will further distinguish him as a trendsetter in a rapidly evolving music industry.
