Not your average disc jockey, DJ Jason Perez sets fire to the music scene with a stylized interplay of underground beats and mainstream dance mixes. His signature electronic music sound is intoxicatingly sophisticated, irresistibly sexy, fun and energetic.
Originally from Queens, NY, Jason Perez was born with love for the art of music. Art & Music came naturally for Jason as his father is a successful Painter & Artist and his uncle was a prominent DJ and Radio personality. Jason began his love for music and started DJing at the young age of 13. At 17, Jason moved to Florida where he developed a deep passion for Electronic Dance Music. By the age of 19 Jason had rightfully launched his professional DJ career, opening for and playing alongside renowned DJs such as BT, Carl Cox, Josh Wink, Ferry Corsten, Bill Hamel, Derrick Carter and Oscar G during his five year residency at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Tampa.
Currently residing in Miami, Jason spends day and night in the studio crafting new songs and arrangements in the genres of Progressive, Electro and Tech House music and growing his own record label JMP Music. He continues working and developing up and coming artist and working with established artists. He can be found on the weekends performing live as a regular guest DJ in top US venues from the Fontainebleau’s LIV Nightclub in Miami to Webster Hall in NYC.

Jason Perez spearheads the music program at Gallery 212 Miami, his family-owned gallery, studio and event venue in the heart of Wynwood - Miami’s hottest growing art and entertainment district. Under his direction since 2010, the venue hosts special events monthly to coincide with Second Saturday Art Walks, with heavy hitting lineups of Miami’s hottest resident DJs alongside Perez’s own selected up-and-comers. He has successfully lead teams in the production of a wide range of special events on multiple stages, from Art Beats for Life benefiting the American Cancer Society to events that have become annual reoccurrences at the venue due to their immense popularity such as Basel Beats and a Miami Winter Music Conference showcase with over 40 performers. His innovative approach to entertainment management resulted in the selection of Gallery 212 Miami for the 2013 Miami Award in Music Venues by the Miami Award Program, which each year identifies companies that have achieved exceptional marketing success in local business.
In 2014, JMP Music will continue to put out tracks with collaborations with a variety of new and established artists. Jason Perez’s original track “XYLO” and “DEW” is due to release just in time for this year’s Miami Winter Music Conference (March, 2014). With tracks released on Inwama Records Ibiza and regular gigs as an opener for the world’s best talent at the Fontainebleau’s LIV Nightclub in Miami (The #1 club and entertainment venue in the United States –clubplanet) the name and the brand are growing rapidly in global reach. Jason intends to continue developing music, however, he’s passion and love for DJing will remain his true art form.
