Musician, producer, composer, remixer, performer, audio engineer, multi instrumentalist, with multiple Beatport top 100 entries, having MixMag describe his work as “melodically flawless”, having his music featured on numerous top selling mix compilations globally, including the prestigious “In Search of Sunrise” series, with 10/10 reviews and support from everyone worth mentioning in the electronic dance music scene. At 22 years old, Jason van Wyk is one of the brightest things to happen in electronic music within the last decade.
This talented South African, Cape Town born artist has sky rocketed in the last few years with his creative and forward thinking approach to music. Performing live alongside and having his music supported by the industry greats such as Armin van Buuren (A State of Trance), Tiesto (Club Life), Above & Beyond (Trance Around The World), Ferry Corsten, Paul Oakenfold, Sander van Doorn and many, many more.
Doing work for internationally acclaimed labels such as Sony, Warner and Black Hole to name a few, with remix credits to his name from artists such as Grammy award nominee BT, Kirsty Hawkshaw and First State, with music being written, licensed and co-written for various media outlets throughout the world, this young man is as focused and dedicated as they come to what he does best.
Starting his professional career at the age of 13 with his first club debut performance and being offered his first record deal for his first original production at age 14, it’s been clear from the start where this young man’s life has been set to go.
Coming from a classical background, with family in the London Philharmonic orchestra and his mother being a classical pianist and music teacher, it’s evident in his work where his musicality lies. His emotional, deep, uplifting and often melancholic melodies, his attention to detail and the versatility in the genres and styles he produces showcase his sheer talent when it comes to his art and that he’s as happy producing melodic and laid back records as he is producing a full on club hit.
New singles, collaborations and remixes are in the works as well as Jason’s first studio album aiming for a release in 2012. Things are definitely going strong in the world of Jason van Wyk.
