Easy breezy tech house and techno for summertime listenings


Jason Short is a burgeoning San Francisco artist and the label manager for Auralism Records. For over 12 years he has been producing original material under his own name, along with the collaborative efforts Eutactic, Kyaro, and most notably Coalition of the Killing, who was named one of Beatport’s “Minimal Artists to Watch” in 2009. During career he’s called a few music scenes his home, including Chicago and Miami, but Short’s greatest contributions musically have been in San Francisco. It is here that he has refined his diverse and restless tastes, allowing him to share stages with both fringe artists and dance floor populists. The reason his music can stand so comfortably at both ends of electronic music’s poles is due to his unique vision as a producer. A vision that was forged at the age of four, spending time each day with his stepfather in the recording studio pushing buttons and turning knobs on analog synths and Atari sequencers. Over the years, Short has also showed his daring presence as a DJ and live act at numerous events including the Cecille & Oslo showcase at the WMC (Winter Music Conference) 2009, the DEMF (Detroit Electronic Music Festival) after parties in 2008 & 2009, Lovefest (San Francisco) 2008 & 2009, the SAMC (South American Music Conference) in Ecuador 2008, as well as other events in New York, Chicago, Detroit, Miami, and Los Angeles.

In 2010, Short has follow-up tours of South America and of Europe planned as well as releases on Auralism and Blipswitch Digital. He is also actively exhibiting his growing collection of unreleased material – adding to his already extensive discography. Some of this material includes dub oriented sounds co-produced with Dub Mission founder DJ Sep as well as a full-length album. His highly refined live sets are sure to make a big splash this year with an array of fat, analog synth lines and cutting edge drum machine programming. Few contemporaries are as bold as Short, with a sound best described as a dense, heavily layered thicket of techno containing bold contrasts of gentle mid range tones, deep space harmonics, and hefty bass surprises. Jason Short is an electronic musician on the cusp of greatness; this will be his year.
