In an era where pretty much everyone has a computer equipped with digital
music programs like Fruity Loops or Garage Band, it’s refreshing to hear
electronic music made with analog drum machines and synthesizers.
Oakland resident Jason Stinnett, aka Jaysonic, takes that approach to the
next level by using vintage gear combined with the newest electronic
instruments to create his own unique sound. Jaysonic doubles as producer
for Oakland-based electro outfit Hottub and is resident DJ for the first
Friday dance party Le Heat.
This week’s featured track is the LLEGGS Theme by Jaysonic. It features a
thick old-school sounding drum groove, with a crunchy bassline and
slick melodic pads to even it out. Towards the end of the song, it gets a

This is a jam that the robots of the future will call a classic and the people of today will just brush off, but we aren’t sleeping on this track, we’re dancing.
This Saturday, Oct. 16, Jaysonic will be spinning electro and disco grooves for Booze-Wazi – a new, monthly audio visual art party at Radio Bar. Come through and listen to the jams that Jaysonic will be bumping through the sound system.
