Pete Distracted also known as Peter Hofer was born on 16.04.85 in Steyr, Upper Austria. Due to his musical talent, his parents decided to send him to St.Florian, to join a boy choral, in his early ages.
His interest considerably increased, especially in broadcasting and radio stations, so he tried himself as a radio anchorman.
Very soon the radio music couldn´t satisfy his urge anymore and thats why he became DJ, in 2000. At the beginning of his carrer he performed, as DJ Bomba, on small private events, as many DJ´s before. In the course of years he improved his skills and more and more people were set „bomb-happy“ during his gigs.
In 2003, the former choral singer, decides to change his name to Pete Distracted. Besides his education as a restaurant expert, his appereance as Dj in various discos rised during the next two years. Facinated by electronical music, he mainly preferred (hard)-techno and house, in 2006.
After that he was booked for many popular events like „Schranz Total“, „Big Sunflower“ and did several warm-up´s for Pet Duo, Felix Kröcher, Arkus P, Robert Natur, Sven Wittekind, Boris S and a lot more.
The nativ Asten (Upper Austria) got is own web radio broadcast for Austrias biggest web radio channel - clubsoundz.fm, where he spoiled the audience with a mix of house and hardtechno music, till recently. For the very same broadcasting station he also presented live coverages from miscellaneos discos and events.
Again Pete discovers his passion for house music and since 2009 he delights everyone who can identify themselves with house/electro/minimal/edm music.
Another big career move was in the middle of 2009. Pete won an important DJ casting. Since then he is not only known in Upper Austria but also beyond the border line and plays on various mega events and in Discos, in whole Austia.
Pete is a essential member of the Austrian clubbing scene. He is proving his talent week after week in the „Nightlife Group“ (Lusthouse Haag & Empire St. Martin). His forceful Electrobeats didn´t remain undetected for very long. Therefore, the likeable musical talent, was already given the chance to support Martin Garrix, Ummet Ozcan, Laidback Luke, Dyro, Barnes & Heatcliff and Paul Van Dyk. He evan deejayed on the 2014 Donauinselfest and Lake Festival 2015.
You just have to convince yourself of his skills and visit Pete on one of his many bookings.
