J-Hecht- Press Kit
Summer 2012

Biography

After more than a decade of slugging it out in New York’s house music scene, J-Hecht found himself in need of an inspiration re-injection. This unexpectedly came from a move to Asheville, North Carolina a few years back. With no intention to stay immersed in dance music, Jason was soon mingling with local artists, musicians, and DJs and caught the bug once again. “I guess the music found me,” he jokes. Reinvigorated, J-Hecht took to the decks once again.

J-Hecht has also reemerged with a new focus on production work. Working a style that evenly fuses tech-house and minimal sounds but with a funky influence (probably taken from his past love of breaks records) J-Hecht has been knocking out club-primed tracks. Every step is a sign that Jay's best dancefloor moments are yet to come.

He has released and continues to release original music as well as remixes on various labels such as Electrik Soul Records, Kushtee Records, Fierce Animal Recordings, Nightchild Records, Get High Music, Deep Nota, Release Musiq and many more.

J-Hecht, who has previously been heard on Release Musiq as well as Onionz' Electrik Soul label. displays his funky style with a straight-forward groover titled "Realized." The rhythm section pulls off some tight, hip-shaking house music with a punchy bass line and a potent four-on-the-floor drive. Expressive vocal cut-ups and hits follow the rhythm adding a simmering excitement to the track. On top of all this is an effected synth melody, bursting in and out of the mix with modulated echoes and splashes of reverb .Read More...
