Jason Stewart, better known to the world as Them Jeans , is a rare mix of diverse interests and unforgettable presence (he is 6 ft. 8 inches tall after all!). To categorize him as merely another DJ/producer would be to understate his drive and contributions to the current musical landscape in Los Angeles and increasing influence in the global music community. He has been the driving force behind world famous club night Dim Mak Tuesdays at Cinespace for over five years as both a DJ and promoter, helping to showcase acts as eclectic and renown as Justice, Lady Gaga, and Kid Cudi. His well thought out, genre-bending sets (spanning from house music to down tempo moody remixes) have recently seen him gaining recognition from publications such as Complex, Discobelle, and XLR8R, while expanding his fan base through recent touring throughout North America and Europe. Not content with just furthering his musical craft, Jason continues to pursue his other passions in life which include an uncanny knowledge of food showcased through Twittering and continued work as a talented graphic designer who produces much of the artwork for his releases and events. However, at the forefront of all this is his relentless work on new and distinct musical creations.
Them Jeans’s passion for a wide array of genres and sounds has found its way into his productions in truly innovative ways. It would be difficult to find another artist out there who can credit remixes by Two Door Cinema Club, Bloc Party, Childish Gambino, Diplo, and Flight Facilities to their repertoire and have it all fit perfectly. While they may seem disparate, all of his music shares a genuine belief in crafting one-of-a-kind listening experiences that look toward challenging people’s perception of mainstream music and blurring the line between dance music and every other genre imaginable. Alongside the aforementioned remixes, popular bootleg remixes done for the XX, Rihanna, Kindness, and SBTRKT are garnering national attention and radio play. In 2011, he began to host an all talk, laugh out load, and incredibly informative radio podcast “Tall Tales” featuring guests from Diplo, Lovefoxx of CSS, Donald Glover, Riff Raff, Daedalus, and Brodinski. Them Jeans is keeping on his prolific creative pace with an original EP of uniquely crafted house music due out in early 2013 (Vowel Play on No Brainer Records) and a sea of original music that should only help to solidify him as an artist not to be ignored.
Brass Fergie is a brand new project birthed from Dan Oh, an LA native currently residing in Brooklyn, NY. Oh spent 6 years as a resident DJ at Cinespace Dim Mak Tuesdays in Hollywood alongside Steve Aoki and Them Jeans until it's transformation into Dim Mak Studios in 2011.
Recently Dan Oh has performed as the US tour DJ for UK’s dubstep R&B artist Katy B, seen throughout her recent North American Tour as well as at Ultra Music Festival in Miami earlier this year. He can also be seen falling asleep at clubs, practicing Brazilian jiu-jitsu, or photographed on @ysaperez’s instagram. He is also often misidentified as Kevin Kusatsu. Both are equally beautiful men.
Brass Fergie is the product of Dan Oh’s undying motivation to create inventive electronic music, while incorporating his love for all things UK Bass. Stay tuned for releases throughout 2012…
