Jason 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 2011. Over 16 years of experience DJing in some of the finest clubs across the world, the development of his own club nights, promotions & radio show and an extensive production discography, are all testaments to his talents and dedication.
His unique, driving and infectious sound initially caught the attention of London’s clubland following his debut set at Turnmills, which led to him being invited to play at a number of the UK’s leading clubs (Ministry Of Sound, The Cross, Pacha, SE One, Matter, etc). Jason has subsequently become established on the international touring circuit and over the past 8 years, as his 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’ gained major support from the likes of Axwell, David Guetta, etc 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 ‘Diesel’, his ‘Dark Side/That Rhythm EP’ & ‘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 No. 1 spot on the UK DMC Buzz Chart and picked up serious club and radio support from a range of international tastemakers. With his Stealth releases helping to launch him into the limelight, Jason was immediately touted as ‘one to watch’ and he has gone on to work with labels such as Subliminal Records, Great Stuff Recordings, Urbana, Hotfingers, Cube Recordings, Incorrect Music, Hysteria & Nocturnal Groove, to name just a few.
His ‘Got To Be Strong’ collaboration with My Digital Enemy on Zulu Records climbed to #2 on the Beatport ‘House’ Chart and held firm in that position for nearly 3 months. As well as Zulu, the two other labels Jason has worked especially closely with most recently are Toolroom Records and 1605 Music Therapy; his ‘Whatever’ and ‘Work the Track’ collabs with Kevin Andrews (Hoxton Whores) on 1605 were the label’s two biggest selling tracks of 2014 and kept Jason’s music in high demand. He’s now a regular artist on Toolroom Records with recent single releases/hits such as ‘Tell Me’, ’Oh Yeah’, ‘Changing Lanes’, ‘Krin’, and ‘Just Like That’. At the end of 2015 he was picked by Toolroom to mix their prestigious ‘Selector Series’ compilation (Volume 35) which was released on the label in October and featured Jason’s hot joint/collab with Jose Nunez, called ‘Feeling This’. Jose and Jason have since followed that up with their recent hit smash single ‘Lost In Music’ on Hotfingers which peaked at No. 13 on the Beatport Top 100 Chart.
As a DJ, Jason effortlessly rocks the dancefloor through a unique combination of impeccable track selection and tight mixing, delivered with unbridled passion and energy. He’s been a regular featured guest on the likes of Roger Sanchez, Umek and The Shapeshifters’ Radio Shows & playing a combination of chunky, driving, energetic House & Tech House, Jason has dj’d all over the world including Holland, Serbia, Russia, Dubai, Miami (USA), Poland, etc. He’s toured Australia and Thailand successfully over the last few years and he was back in Asia for his seventh tour over there in April 2018 for Songkran (Thai New Year). With a host of further productions and remixes dropping on a range of respected labels, Jason is an artist that will most definitely be set for big things for the rest of 2018 & beyond. Watch this space – Jason Chance is an artist that deserves some serious attention.
