Jason started his career as being one the the first resident Dj’s at Cafe Mambo Ibiza where he still plays regularly every week during the summer. Since then he has held a 4 year residency at Amnesia, 12 years at We-Love Space in Ibiza and 3 years as the mainroom dj for Home nightclub in Sydney and London.
Originally from the UK he started DJing as a follow on to his previous experimentation with Breakdance and B-boy electro beats, before moving on to Garage and House in the early 90’s. Having found himself in Ibiza for a few summers he played a gig at Cafe Mambo and was subsequently asked by the owner to come back next year as the first full-time resident dj.
A lucky break some might say but a break insightful enough to recognise a raw talent, as since 1994 Jason Bye has been a stand out dj on the dance music scene. Racking up residencies across the globe that reads like a Wikipedia of clubs including Amnesia, Manumission, Cream, Up ya Ronson, and of course We Love Sundays at Space where hes been playing every sunday for the last 12 years.
From 1999 to 2003 he was the main room resident at Home in Sydney Australia and cites following DJ Carl Cox onto the turntables at Mobile Home on Bondi Beach to 20,000 people on NYE 2000 as one of the highlights of his Australian residency.. Other parties like Djing alongside Sanchez & Basement Jaxx under the Sydney Harbour Bridge NYE 2002 and 2003 followed. Other most memorable moments for Jason include playing at The Hacienda NYE 1995 in Manchester, Pacha Buenos Aires Argentina, Pacha San Paulo Brazil, and being the official tour DJ for Groove Armada in Australia & N.Zealand.
In the spring of 2011 Jason developed the Ibiza 971 Club Radio show (http://soundcloud.com/jason-bye) which has a current audience of 260,000people weekly via his association with the Addicted To Ibiza Facebook Group Page and of course Ideal club World Radio.
Lots of Funked up Tribal Grooves, Pounding BassLines and some Slick Classic House Vocals are his calling cards and his unique style and ability to read the crowd keeps his dancefloor pumping long after everyone should have gone home. Down to earth and approachable, his love of dance music shines through and as he says…..I play House Music all night long, you can call it what you like, Techno, Deep Jakin House, tribal garage whatever but as long as the lady’s are dancin the party is rocking.
