(real name Jason Donnelly
) is an American Disc Jockey
and Music Producer from Chicago. He is best known for his production work on the Sony Sound Series loop library. Scratch Tactics was the first collection of turntable scratches designed specifically for popular loop based music
programs such as Sony ACID Pro.
Anyone using loops to create music or enhance a DJ set has probably used his material whether they know it or not. Donnelly, AKA DJ Puzzle, has been creating loops in a range of genres from Rock to Reggaeton to Electro to Hardcore ever since he started his career with Sony Creative Software in 1998, back when it was still called Sonic Foundry.
