Jason Heller is a Denver-based DJ whose career stretches back to 1996. He's currently a resident DJ at Funk Club, Mile High Soul Club, and 45s Against 45 (winner of 2018’s Best Club Night in Denver award from Westword). He founded Whip It! to share his passion for the energy and fun of '80s music, both mainstream and alternative. Jason exclusively plays vinyl 45s -- yes, those little records with the big holes -- to recreate the authentic experience of an intimate, old-school dance party. In addition to spinning records, Jason is the author of the book Strange Stars: David Bowie, Pop Music, And The Decade Sci-Fi Exploded as well as being a pop-culture writer for Rolling Stone, NPR, Pitchfork, The New Yorker, and The Atlantic. He also plays guitar in the post-punk band Weathered Statues, whose music has been remixed by Lol Tolhurst of The Cure.
