July 23 – Twist and Fader (Chicago)
After being an avid fan of electronic dance music since the late 90’s, Jason bought his first technic turntables in May of 2003. His love of electronic music and the need to be able to search for music that wasn’t available on mixed cd’s drove him to take his hobby to another level.
As most DJ’s, Jason has evolved over the years and has refined his skills, as well as his style behind the decks. No two sets are ever the same for this guy, as he plays not only to the room, but what he loves and wants to share with others on each particular night. A master of setting the mood, he has made his rounds through the midwest playing along some of the best in Columbus, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Detroit and now in his new home of Milwaukee.
“I really do this first and foremost for the love of the music, and I think that shows during my sets. I spend quite a bit of time venturing through many genres of music, and it has helped me make this a very enjoyable hobby. I feel humbled and blessed that I get to share music with others, no matter what the scale.”
Jason recently has taken the next step into music production, but is in no rush to release music to the masses that will just get filtered out with the sludge of mp3 tunes over saturating the market today. When you start to see releases from Jason Allen, it will be something he is willing to put his stamp of approval on.
