DJ Jason Heller
Jason Heller is a Denver-based DJ whose career stretches back to 1996. He's currently a resident DJ at both Funk Club and Mile High Soul Club, and he founded Whip It! to express his passion for the energy and fun of '80s music, both mainstream and alternative. His past dance nights over the years have included Quid, Shag, Off The Wall, and the award-winning Chit Chat. Jason exclusively plays vinyl 45s -- yes, those little records with the big holes -- to recreate the authentic experience of an intimate, old-school dance party. In addition to spinning records, Jason is the author of the book Strange Stars: David Bowie, Pop Music, And The Decade Sci-Fi Exploded (Random House) as well as being a music journalist for Rolling Stone, NPR, Pitchfork, The New Yorker, and The Atlantic. He also plays guitar in the post-punk band Weathered Statues, whose music has been remixed by Lol Tolhurst of The Cure.
