Jason Forrest is an electronic musician working in a variety of forms. His sample-based music has been a pioneering force in the experimental music community and he’s widely credited as a pioneer in the Breakcore genre.

Currently based in New York City, he has released records in the US, UK, EU, and Japan and has been featured in many periodicals* all over the world. Somehow he has managed to perform on 6 continents and his many, many shows around the world have garnered him a large international audience. His unique performance style usually involves much bad dancing, possibly some blood and a few shattered laptops.

The War Photographer video by Joel Trussell (Pickle and Peanut) was named top 5 by Pitchfork media and was downloaded more than 1.5 million times (this was in the days before Youtube.) The video for “Steppin Off”, directed by Jon Watts (Spider-man: Homecoming), was named as video of the year by Res magazine in 2005.

He launched the Cock Rock Disco label in 2001 which has released scores of albums, vinyl, and CDs by many of the most influential artists in breakcore. He hosted the influential “Advanced D&D” radio program on WFMU in NYC from 2002-2008. He co-founded the Wasted Festival with Pure and in conjunction with Club Transmediale (CTM) in 2005. The focus of the festival focused on Breakcore and all forms of music that shares the same energy and reckless enthusiasm.

Forrest co-founded the online Tv site Network Awesome in 2011 which had millions of regular viewers and was run by a large group of international volunteers. The start-up focused on curated content as well as original video content via Radosaur productions.
