Breakcore/IDM/experimental artist Jason Forrest
began his career recording under the alias Donna Summer
, not only to confuse people who enjoy listening to the disco diva with the same name, but also (according to an interview on CBC Radio) for "subjecting people to a fake issue of diversity." Whatever the case, his frantic and highly original productions largely came out on his own Cock Rock Disco imprint; however, thus far he has released his most important works, The Unrelenting Songs of the 1979 Post Disco Crash
and Shamelessly Exciting
, on the Sonig imprint. He relocated to electronic music mecca Berlin, where he formed a group (fitting titled the Jason Forrest Band
) for the sake of performances. In 2008, he co-founded Nightshifters, an MP3 label focused on dancefloor productions. Three years later, he released another album, The Everything, through Berlin's Staatsakt.
