Breakcore/IDM/experimental artist Jason Forrest began his career recording under the alias Donna Summer, not only to confuse people who enjoy listening to the disco diva with the same name, but also (according to an interview on CBC Radio) for "subjecting people to a fake issue of diversity." Whatever the case, his frantic and highly original productions largely came out on his own Cock Rock Disco imprint; however, thus far he has released his most important works, The Unrelenting Songs of the 1979 Post Disco Crash and Shamelessly Exciting, on the Sonig imprint. He relocated to electronic music mecca Berlin, where he formed a group (fitting titled the Jason Forrest Band) for the sake of performances. In 2008, he co-founded Nightshifters, an MP3 label focused on dancefloor productions. Three years later, he released another album, The Everything, through Berlin's Staatsakt.
