BRIGHTSIDE

For the 23 year old Queens native producer, Brightside, its not just about the music, its about the movement. His vision is to produce auditory art that brings people together and creates a sense of community. Brightside has a predominantly Mid-tempo sound, drawing inspiration from all ends of the spectrum. In a conscious effort to reach all audiences, Brightside samples a widely eclectic library of music from all around the world. Creating psychedelic sounds with Middle Eastern, Asian, Classic Rock,Hip-Hop and even Reggae flare,just to name a few.Brightside’s project has been gaining momentum in the past year. Having opened for acts such as Ill.Gates, Break Science, Paul Basic, Kaminanda, Govinda, Futexture, Schlang, and Technicolor Lenses, he has been able to put his vision into motion.A homemade visual project as well as graffiti/street art movement for Brightside is in full effect right now.He is also working on putting a Brightside Live project into play, combining electronic music with live instruments on stage.

OUTLET

Summer of 1997 he bought his first 16 track sequencer and was learning the ropes, experimenting with making music from scratch that was all his own, with psychedelic melodies and hypnotic tones, empowered with heavy bass lines. If you look for it you’ll find some of these early Outlet sessions online. After a brief hiatus starting in 2007, his burning passion was reignited when he and his soul mate Elisabeth Marcoux went to 2008’s Rothbury Music Festival in Michigan. Hearing the mind blowing artists perform with such love and high energy, and being immersed in the unified and uplifted crowd, sparked Jon’s need to make music again. The discovery of Ableton Live, allowed him to explode into creativity again, being a ten year veteran to digital computer software such as Cubase and Cakewalk, Ableton’s cutting edgeness really allowed Jon to dive right into it this time integrating the sounds of hip hop, soul, funk and trance. He has now been producing a dance oriented, groove inspired, glitchy style of music that is energetic, passionate and fun. Of course, infusing his positive vibrations healing frequencies and inspiring light, baked into every morsel of each tantalizing song. The concoction of organic sounds whipped and blended with original bass lines and drum patterns, along with his ability to manipulate the texture and flavor of each synthesized note will leave the listener delighted in savoring every delicious layer baked into every song!
