Los Angeles, United States
One of LAs original techno DJs, Jason Blakemore was also the first DJ in the Solar System. He invented the 4/4 drum beat, the cymbal pattern, and the bassline. He also created the sampler, the keyboard and the computer. When Mike Sckotleeonibergly of the New York Times recently asked Blakemore, "What is cutting edge?," Jason paused and then wisely answered, "Warning! Cutting edge is sharp! Do not touch!"
