DJ Spotlight: DJ Jason E
Jason Ewell, known by partygoers and music lovers as DJ Jason E, has been firmly planted in the music scene his entire life, beginning as a drummer with ambitions to be a rock star.
"I have loved music all my life," Ewell, 31, says. "I was an intern at 95.1 WAYV FM, as well as at 100.7 WZXL FM, where I learned the best stuff from Steve Raymond."
It wasn't long after being exposed to radio that Ewell was ready to take his passion for nightlife to the streets - specifically in Atlantic City.
"I got my first taste of the Atlantic City party scene being captivated by shows by DJs like Tony Detitto, Marc Asbury and Joey the Hatt," Ewell says. "It was infectious to me, and after that it was solidified that this is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life."
You can check out DJ Jason E every weekend at some of the Atlantic City's finest clubs and bars, including The Pool at Harrah's Resort and The Casbah nightclub inside the Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort.
Keep The Party Alive: "When you play in front of more than 2,000 people, like I do at The Pool, you have to bring the energy or you lose the dance floor," Ewell says. "I am someone who loves music, and I'm not afraid to play something old or something that I've remixed. If a song works, and you know the crowd will love it, then I drop it in without fear."
What To Expect: You can expect to hear music by LMFAO, Fatman Scoop, Crooklyn Clan, Flo Rida, Lil Jon and much more during a set by DJ Jason E.
Hometown Hero: Ewell was born and raised in the Atlantic City area, and loves to represent the "real" Jersey Shore. He was born in Atlantic City, raised in Margate and Ventnor, and is a graduate of Atlantic City High School.
