Jason and Allen were long time friends having met up during the late 90’s in the DC Metro area where both had mutual interests and had started djing around the areas budding electronic music scene. Years later with Jayclue having re-located to Los Angeles, he started collaborating in the studio on projects with Rex as well as working on projects across the country with Allen.
