Performing a live set of unreleased material at his home away from home for the first time...
JASON SHORT [Auralism, Little Helpers, Thoughtless Music]
Jason Short is a burgeoning electronic musician and the label manager for Auralism Records. For over 14 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 his 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 was there that he 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) 2006, 2008 & 2009, the SAMC (South American Music Conference) in Ecuador 2008, Soundwave Festival (Vancouver) in 2010 as well as other events in Berlin, Munich, Frankfurt, Laussane, Barcelona, New York, Chicago, Detroit, Miami, Denver, and Los Angeles.
2012 has been an exciting year for Jason with a big release out on Little Helpers and an upcoming EP on Thoughtless Music. He is also actively exhibiting his growing collection of unreleased material – adding to his already extensive discography. His highly refined live sets are making big splash 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 has been quietly building his vast discography, and gaining experience behind the decks and in the studio. He is, without a doubt, one to watch in 2012 and beyond.

NASA defines the signal transmission from outer orbit space craft to earth as DTE. We attempt to embody this transmission, become the source and reach out to new audiences. We here at DTE find the music we play and the talent we bring to our events just as exotic as alien planets. We hope to cultivate a positive impact here on earth via sound waves, and experimentation. We are DJs, producers, party people, ravers, gear heads, bankers, photographers, weirdos, dancers, bartenders and brewers who find life all the more amusing when the sound system is loud, the drinks are stiff, and the DJ is actually playing what they imagined they would play.
Here's to techno, Here's to you...
