Jason van Wyk is a composer and music producer based in Cape Town, South Africa.

With a career spanning over a decade, Jason’s path to his conspicuous blend of electronic and acoustic works started with his first release in 2004. Producing mostly club music during this period, his productions soon found a home on the prestigious Black Hole Recordings label where numerous singles, collaborations and remixes followed over the years.

2013 saw the release of Jason’s first solo album Days You Remember.
 Moving away from his previously established sound, the album took on a range of influences, from abstract electronic music to post-classical and ambient.

Jason’s second album Attachment was released in 2016 and his third album Opacity in 2017. Blurring even further away, both consisted of minimal compositions for piano, chamber strings and electronics.

Besides his releases, Jason’s music and sound design has been commissioned by the likes of The Criterion Collection, Roland, Virtual Sonics, and more.

Jason’s fourth album is slated for a release in 2019 on the Californian based n5MD label.

“Simple, unabashed beauty albeit with sophisticated underpinnings.” – Headphone Commute

“Bittersweet atmospheres. Desolate and soul searching.” – Fluid Radio

“Jason van Wyk is not just a musician, he is a sound artist. Opacity shows the South African’s true brilliance and ability to use to his full advantage his talent at connecting what happens in his head to the music that comes through his instruments.” — Norman Records

“Van Wyk is much more than a pianist; he’s attracted to deceptively simple sounds embedded in elaborate pieces. Violin and cello add deeper tones to these pieces as well, making even a two-minute track lodge itself in the mind.”– A Closer Listen

“South African artist Jason van Wyk made a name for himself on the electronic music scene before shifting several years ago toward minimal composition, a domain that he demonstrates complete mastery over on his third full-length album entitled Opacity. It is an impeccably lush and luminous collection of imaginative pieces that manage to sound expansively cinematic while remaining serene and intimate. Piano along with violin and cello weave the modern classical magic embellished by opulent layers of electronics used both ornamentally and melodically throughout. Such an assured combination of emotional effusion and rich sound design is rare to find. Exceptional.” – Stationary Travels
