About the author (2010)

Jason Emsley is a California-bred, London-based DJ/producer whose pursuit of electronic music found him a home several years ago on the seminal Cologne, Germany-based techno label, Platzhirsch Schallplatten, and upon the influential Kompakt booking roster. After three years of working from the Los Angeles-based Native Instruments office, he and his wife packed up and sailed off to explore further opportunities in Europe. Jason continues to work in a freelance capacity for Native Instruments as their UK-based DJ product specialist. He recently designed and opened a recording studio in East London called Format Project, where he continues to host product trainings, collaborate with like-minded artists, design sound, and produce his own blend of electronic music.
