Event Description

Jason Smith has always been committed to the art of DJing. Throughout the years, he has witnessed and participated in its evolution from analog to digital while always keeping the craftsmanship intact. Combining his endless enthusiasm for all forms of music with a technical skill developed from years of experience, Jason brings a fresh ear and a classic style everywhere he plays. His talents have brought him across the globe, sharing and translating his mastery of the art form for crowds of all shapes and sizes.

Originally from Binghamton, New York, Jason started DJing on the radio and in local clubs when he was only 16 years old. Self taught, he studied the mix tapes of old school legends and was soon generating his own mixes as yet another way to practice and hustle his craft. DJing clubs from open to close every weekend for years gave Jason the time to hone his skills and establish a work ethic that he carries to this day.

Now a New York City resident for more than 15 years, Jason can be found in some of the city's hottest clubs, including The Box and Bounce. He holds residencies in The Borgata at Atlantic City and Shrine at MGM Grand Foxwoods and has played across the country in venues from New York to L.A. Like Chicago's The Wit Rooftop and 1Oak Las Vegas. On top of his distinguished solo gigs, Jason has toured with Travie McCoy, Pete Wentz and Fatman Scoop. 

Known for unique playlists that combine and defy all genres, Jason shares many of his secret weapons with fans and fellow DJs on his Soundcloud page. His bootleg "All Is Do Is One" has been played by DJs in clubs, sports arenas and on Hot 97. His remix and production work has been posted by blogs such as Earmilk and Aerial Noise.

Jason's well earned reputation for professionalism and dedication to his craft have resulted in his performances at such nationally prestigious events as Barack Obama's first Presidential Inauguration parties, the London Olympics Coca Cola party, Lady Gaga's V-Magazines party at Poisson Rouge, and the Gala for St. Jude Children Hospital.

Never one to stand still, Jason will continue to push himself and his craft forward. He looks to bring his talents to more venues across the world and expand his music production. Despite the skills and work ethic that has brought him from a small pond to the world stage, in Jason's mind, he's only getting started.
