Inspired by the electronic music emanating from Detroit's airwaves, Jason Kendig has been pursuing the dance music dream for nearly two decades. For the past eight years he has been an integral member of the esteemed Honey Soundsystem. A queer collective of like minded musicians, artists and discaires based in San Francisco focused on elevating nightlife in the Bay Area and beyond. Not one to be limited by genres he is just as comfortable deftly mixing between the dark realms of techno and deeper slices of house music as well as the more underground sounds of disco & italo and that is reflected in his extensive vinyl collection which is testament to his many years digging through dusty crates in an endless pursuit of the perfect groove. Whether he is warming up the dance floor or steering it through its peek hours he never fails to make others move through his ability to reference dance music's past yet keeping an ear to the future.
"Kendig's own mixes have a deep, wintry atmosphere, sparkling with subtle details, ambient risks, and the refinement that comes from years of just listening to techno. He also has the ability to reinvest campy disco or house classics with the fervent emotions that informed them in the first place, bringing on the shivers with, say, a familiar
acid-derived cymbal hit."
