Jason Torres is a DJ/VJ/Producer who has been a part of the Austin live music scene in various forms for almost 10 years. His DJ sets usually center around the bass heavy genres likes UK dubstep, future garage, and drum and bass, but he is just as happy to play some minimal tech house or 90’s diva house. His VJ sets are known for their breathtaking scenery, vivid colors, and unusual content. His original music is always atmospheric and brimming with bass, but can range from minimal moombahton to trancestep.
His latest audio projects include a spooky tech-house EP called “”Sewer Music”” created with Kendall Clark under their moniker, Neon Black and an electro-crunk EP “”TLUV and Han Cholo”” he produced and recorded with Austin lyricist TLUV. Torres also has worked with many Austin music groups in various ways such as recording the duo Good Town, mixing and mastering for Crooks, and remixing for L.A.X.
Since he started performing with Ableton Live in 2008, Jason has used Live’s flexibility to perform in a variety of ways such as creating a dual APC40 DJ setup alongside Kendall Clark, controlling a symphony of iMacs at the University of Texas ACTLab, and using Live to manipulate and create visual content.
Jason has also been pushing the field of projection mapping to new levels, working with the Gravitas crew to create the first projection mapping group in Austin.
