Jason Chance


Jason_HJason Chance is without doubt one of the scene’s fast-rising young stars, which was highlighted when Beatport selected him as one of their “2011 Next Big Thing / Emerging Artist” nominees in March 2011. To say that Jason lives and breathes music would be a definite understatement; over 12 years of experience DJing in some of the finest clubs across Europe, the development of his own club nights and promotions and an extensive production discography, are all testaments to his talents and dedication. Jason’s unique, driving and infectious sound initially caught the attention of London’s clubland following his debut set at Turnmills – a venue where he subsequently held a long-standing residency – before being invited to play at a number of the UK’s leading clubs (Ministry Of Sound, The Cross, Pacha (London), SE One, Matter, etc). Jason has subsequently become established on the international touring circuit and over the past three years, as Jason’s production talent has caught the industry’s attention, his profile has been in real ascendency.Back in 2008, Jason’s first solo production – aptly named ‘The Beginning’ – was picked up by Roger Sanchez and signed to his respected Stealth Records imprint. ‘The Beginning’ picked up major support from the likes of Axwell, David Guetta, D.O.N.S. and Eric E and marked the start of successful relationship with Stealth, who have released a number of Jason’s best known productions and remixes since then, such as ‘Looking Forward’ – a single that featured Michelle Weeks on vocals and The Shapeshifters and Stefano Noferini on remix duties. ‘Looking Forward’ shot straight to the top of the DMC Buzz Chart and picked up serious club and radio support from a range of international tastemakers. Further releases followed on the likes of Nocturnal Groove (‘Head Shake’ , ‘Swizzle Sticks’ and ‘Ready For It’) and Big Love (‘My Am Me’), as well as Hotfingers, Housesession and Vendetta.Jason’s solo debut release on Hotfingers (Friday Night Fever/Life’s Groove EP) hit the Top 15 on the Beatport ‘House’ Chart, and his follow up single for the label – a collaboration with My Digital Enemy, called ‘Body Tonic’ – also got some serious attention, peaking at No. 13 on the same chart. Throughout 2012 Jason had his first release on Toolroom Records (‘You Got Me Down’), a debut release on Great Stuff (‘Zulu Shuffle’) and further releases on Urbana, Hysteria and 1605, to name just a few. The year ended on a high note with Jason releasing ‘Crack House’ on Stealth (a collaboration with Kevin Andrews) which was then followed by Jason’s biggest chart success thanks to another collaboration with My Digital Enemy; released on Zulu Records, ‘Got To Be Strong’ climbed to #2 on the Beatport ‘House’ Chart and held firm in that position for nearly 3 months. 2013 has been Jason’s strongest to date & has seen him enjoying his most successful run on the Beatport download charts with recent releases on 1605, Urbana, Zulu and Stealth once again. The year also started with Jason being signed by Erick Morillo to the legendary ‘Subliminal Records’ label, one of the most iconic in the scene. With a host of further productions and remixes dropping on a range of respected labels and new material lined up on labels such as 1605, Milk & Sugar and Nocturnal Groove, Jason is an artist that will most definitely be set for big things for the rest of 2013 & beyond.As a DJ, Jason effortlessly rocks the dance floor through a unique combination of impeccable track selection and tight mixing, delivered with unbridled passion and energy. Jason has recently performed alongside the likes of Roger Sanchez, Fedde Le Grand, Todd Terry and Prok & Fitch at major showcase nights such as ‘Stealth Live! @ Escape’ (Amsterdam) during ADE and ‘Stealth Live! @ Mansion’ (Miami) during WMC. As well as Amsterdam & Miami, Jason’s international DJ schedule has recently seen him headlining shows right across Europe, Russia, Srbia and Dubai with further interest growing throughout Australia and South America.
