Biography

Los Angeles, United States

Jason Bentley (July 27, 1970) is a prolific disc jockey and music producer in Los Angeles, California. Versed in a variety of musical genres, his specialty is club-style electronica. He often performs at large scale events, benefits and celebrity functions citywide. In April 2010, he was a featured performer at Southern California’s famous annual Coachella Music and Arts Festival.

On December 1, 2008, Bentley replaced Nic Harcourt as Music Director and host of radio station 89.9 KCRW’s signature “Morning Becomes Eclectic”. He had previously hosted evening programs “Afterhours” on KROQ-FM and “Metropolis” on KCRW, the latter for 16 years until November 28, 2008.

Jason began at KCRW as a phone volunteer in July of 1988. He attended Loyola Marymount University and worked as a DJ at their college station KXLU. He was recruited by former KCRW Music Director Chris Douridas after a softball game between the two stations in 1991 and began working at KCRW on-air in the summer of 1992.

In 2004, he was part of a group that successfully lobbied the Recording Academy to add a Best Electronic/Dance Album category to the Grammy Awards.

Bentley has notably collaborated with other well known artists on remix projects, such as for The Flaming Lips with Ego Tripping At The Gates Of Hell (Ego In Acceleration) (Jason Bentley Remix), Silversun Pickups with Lazy Eye (Jason Bentley Remix), and Frou Frou’s Breathe In (Jason Bentley Remix) (for the movie “American Teen”).
