During the summer of 2003 Jason stumbled upon the Green Hard NRG cd. After listening to the Hard NRG series religiously, Jason V attended a DJ course in Melbourne that was run by Jewelz, Soul-T and Nick Compound. After covering the basics with the best deejays in Melbourne, the course played a graduation set in the side room at Bass Australia (previously Bass Station). The feeling of playing live …in a club was indescribable, something that JV definately wanted to do again.
A few more side room sets followed, then Jason moved back home to WA. In 2007 Jason V entered the “Bedroom to Bigroom” DJ Competition at Rise Niteclub, Perth. Jason played well and made alot of great new friends, whose support has been instrumental in keeping his DJ’ing dreams alive.
For a while Jason V turned his hand to music journalism, doing event reviews and interviews online via the site inthemix.com.au. But what Jason really wanted to be doing was playing out at the clubs…
In 2010 Jason V managed to secure resident status at Rise’s new monthly hard event “Ourstyle”. Since then, Jason has gone from strength to strength, playing at all harder-styled events in Perth, including ELECTRIFIED, F.O.R.C.E Raves, Alpha6 Events, Dominate, United, A.W.O.L & Prevalence events.
