Jason Short iTunesJason Short Beatport


Jason Short is young, tirelessly enthusiastic, and stands as one of San Francisco’s emerging techno DJ/producers in a scene gaining international recognition for new sounds and fresh directions. He didn’t arrive here by accident though; it is literally a decade’s worth of hard work in the making. The resourceful Short is the co-founder of the popular San Francisco label Auralism as well as one half the production duos Coalition of the Killing (COTK), Eutactic & Kyaro. Through these outlets, he has released an array of tracks and remixes on notably diverse labels- from Chris Fortier’s Fade to Falko Brocksieper and M.I.A.‘s Karloff Recordings. From his Fog City HQ in SF, he has planned road campaigns this year that include return trips to South American and Europe. Short also speaks of a 2009 as a time where he is looking “…to shock everyone with my new music”. Tired of the growing malaise in the dance music community, Short is eager to dust up the status quo this year with some memorable techno cuts. Tracks focused on strong melodies with the same intense psychedelic personality he’s become recognized for internationally. But Short also yearns, like any true artist, to showcase his wide range of musical emotions with a full length album that exposes his love of IDM, ambient, dub, and cinematic soundscapes. He promises to unveil that material on a much-anticipated Jason Short full-length due later this year. He hopes to catch a lot of the chin-stroking technorati off guard. You can submit your comments to him in person at one of his many upcoming DJ or live PA gigs somewhere in the world. Or better yet, Short suggests, make the pilgrimage to San Francisco and catch either the monthly party Lil’ Brother or one of the Aural Therapy one-offs. It is here that he and Auralism have built a strong foundation by playing host to other like-minded characters such as Dave Aju, Mikael Stavostrand, Elon, Alland Byallo, Touane among countless others.
