From the early 90’s heyday of Toronto’s techno scene through to his current constant touring as a band member and programmer for Nelly Furtado and hip hop superstar Drake, Jason “DJ Shine” Spanu has delivered a brilliant history as a key player in the Canadian electronic music scene. With numerous singles, remixes, and compilation appearances under his belt, DJ Shine has made his reputation well known among some of the world’s top producers and artists. His performances as a live PA/DJ combination have rocked dance floors at huge events and underground jams all over the world.

DJ Shine’s new album Attention Deficit Disco and remix singles are gaining buzz among eclectic house DJs worldwide. The sounds on the album range from lush, deep house and slow motion nu-disco to spaced-out dub workouts and Balearic business. Easy, laid-back listening tracks sit side-by-side to dubby techno excursions and dreamy electronic beatscapes. Attention Deficit Disco is a diverse set of exciting tunes filled with melody and soul, sure to get the feet moving and the heart pumping.

When his schedule permits, Jason teaches his various production and performance techniques and we are lucky enough to have him visiting TARA in February. He will be guest speaking for our students on their Monday night lecture, but he has also agreed to put on a clinic for anyone interested, Sunday Feb. 12th, from 3-6:00 pm

The clinic will give attendees access to DJ Shine’s unique perspective on:
