Slingshot Around The Sun
Slingshot Around the Sun is the Vashon based techno project of Jason Dean, a veteran of the Seattle music scene. Inspired by the techno sounds that have been prevalent in clubs and on labels like Tresor and Berghain based in Berlin Jason brings tracks that could easily fit in peak time club sets and tracks that take on a more experimental and/or ambient feel. Slingshot Around the Sun is one of many current electronic projects that rely on hardware synthesizers, drum machines and samplers in a live setting. Foregoing tracks triggered by laptops and introducing elements of improvisation each set takes on a different character and relies on the collective energy of performer and crowd providing a singular and unique experience each show.
