Considered among New York City’s top house dj’s, Jason Jollins has accomplished this by consistently delivering high quality sets with each given opportunity.
Jason started DJ’ing during the late 80’s. Initially spinning freestyle and house music, he continued to cultivate his DJ skills through the early nineties, embracing his love and talent for the art. Best known for highly technical and well programmed sets, Jason’s sound can be best described as a dark and danceable progressive house fusion of techy, electro, tribal, melodic, sexy, bass-line driven & vocal dubbed elements.
While music has always been a passionate hobby of Jason’s since an early age, in the mid 1990’s, the demand for Jason’s live sets transformed this hobby into something much greater. Since then, he has had the privilege of playing alongside world renowned DJs such as Sasha, Carl Cox, Paul Van Dyk, Steve Lawler, Lee Burridge, Chris Fortier, Hybrid, ATB, Juan Atkins, Armin Van Buuren, Marcus Schulz, Hernan Cattaneo, Above & Beyond, Seb Fontaine, Nu Nrg, Oscar G, Guy Ornadel, Gabriel & Dresden, Anthony Pappa, Tini Tun, Deep Mariano, Darren Emerson, Ferry Corsten, Max Graham, and many others.

These opportunities have considerably elevated Jason’s status as a DJ and have given him the platform needed to form the strong following of fans that he has today.
In the late 1990s, Jason formed an event production company called United Underground which still lives and thrives today. The idea behind United Underground is to serve as a platform for local, national, and international talent to share there passion within there craft.
While appearing on many of the top internet radio stations, Jason has held a monthly radio show on Proton Radio for over 5 years being one of the first dj’s to host a live Proton Radio dj show. Jason continues to host his show on Proton Radio as well as a monthly show (Acute Sessions with Jason Jollins) on Digitally Imported Radio, DLA Radio (Dance Latino America Radio), and DanceRadio (the top internet radio station in Greece).
