Jase is my favourite promoter — and one of my favourite DJs — in Saigon. His DJ sets and the events he organizes are not always beautiful or easy to consume; he doesn’t offer up sick drop after jaw dropping drop nor does he play hit after top 40 hit. What he does do is seamlessly transition from genre to genre, often pushing the boundaries of what is sonically palatable. As such I see him as an educator more than an entertainer.
He is as high-profile as a champion of the underground can become in a scene as commercial as Saigon’s, but what many don’t know is that he also does the art and design for his events’ fliers. They are fantastic and I want to share them with you as well as an interview with the man himself.
