Jason Howson is a DJ, event promoter, broadcaster and cultural advocate. Over the course of his career he has been a pivotal influence on the promotion and development of scenes for UK Garage, Two-Step, Drum and Bass, Grime and Dubstep within New Zealand.

Born in 1971 in Auckland, where he remains based to this day, Howson got his start as a punk/hardcore singer in the eighties, before learning bass guitar and studying towards audio engineering qualifications at SAE. Having made mixtapes from a young age, in 1992 Howson and a friend collectively purchased their first set of DJ turntables and a mixer and started learning to mix with house and hip-hop records.
