BIOGRAPHY Jason Szostek grew up in the musical theater staring in Oliver playing in the King and I on Broadway with Yul Brenner, Constance Towers and Angela Lansbury. After an year in Hollywood as a TV actor and model he realized that his first love was music.
He picked up a classical guitar, then a Les Paul and soon he had a huge collection of effect pedals. Once he got a Yamaha CS 01 synthesizer it was clear that making new sounds was what he was most attracted to. He sold his guitars and most of his pedals and bought synthesizers.
In high school he formed an electronic duo with his friend Steven Wytas who was acquiring drum machines and recording equipment . Free World would release cassettes and one was entered by WFCS into CMJ's best unsigned bands competition in 1985 earning them a spot on the Epic Records compilation the following year. 1986 they released their debut album "Amagi", an eclectic collection of experimental electronica inspired by underground new wave and industrial music of the 80s. Their follow up "The Tyranny of Culture" was released only after Jason started his own label, TOTC, where he also released a few of his side projects.
In 1989 he met Taylor Dupree and sharing many common influences as well as a desire to expand the boundaries of electronic music they formed Decameron and over the next two years released two albums on Taylor's Havoc Music. Some of these tracks would appear on early techno compilations under pseudonyms. Havoc Music's own compilation "Techno Criminal SubCultures" is where BPMF first appeared in '91.
In the spring of 1993 Dietrich Schoenemann asked Jason to join the jam session at Taylor's place where they had assembled all the classic early 80s analog gear. That fall they released "Acid Technology" on Instinct records and performed their first live show as Prototype 909, that night they also met Abe Duque. Abe Duque invited all of his friends to a back room at the legendary Limelight Club in NYC telling them to bring records and gear and be prepared to jam live. BPMF was there. The Rancho Relaxo All- Stars would release three albums and tour Europe together, eventually destroying the original Ultraschall in Munich, quite literally tearing the place down.
In New York he met John Selway of Disintegrator and realized they had a common a love for the early electro and new wave sounds. They formed Synapse and created Serotonin Records to bring the funk back and thus the first electro revival was born. Prototype 909 recorded four albums and played 70 shows. Synapse was the first American electro group to play live in Moscow. BPMF released tracks on Serotonin, Schmer, Instinct, EMF, Tension/Rancho Relaxo Records. In 2000 Jason moved to Philadelphia and went underground. In 2006 he and The Rancho Relaxo All-Atars reformed and released "The Answer Is Always Yes" and toured Europe. In 2007 BPMF released his first solo album "Parousia Fallacy" and in 2008 Prototype 909 returned with a reunion tour.
Recently BPMF has released a number of tracks and played live for Rizumu in Philadelphia and for Black Start in Berlin. He released a DJ megamix of 16 tracks on his Voder Records vodercast "Right Now". He released three volumes of his "Abide the Glide" series of portemento techno on his revived Schmer label. Played live on FNOOB radio. His ambient full length "Solaris" is out on Telepathic Bubblebath. Played live world wide from Berlin on lsb.tv. In 2017 look for BPMF live in clubs and events from Chicago to Berlin and for BPMF on vinyl on Schmer and Serotonin Records in stores everywhere.

Area 303 presents: Space Orbs 01 | 21+ event Sunday, May 28 at 10 PM – 3 AM
An opportunity for ~ new local beginner, ~ aspiring amateur, ~ and known established professional FLOW performing artists to come together and present their work & talent on a stage before an audience.
In order to ~ increase public awareness of FLOW arts & FLOW artists and educate them on it's many tools, tricks, and outlets ~ promote the genre as a viable form of entertainment available for hire and enjoyable as a featured stand alone performance act/art with or without fire (instead of just periphery go go dancing at big rave events where the only people credited on websites and flyers as "appearing artists" are DJ's) ~ develop and establish an audience (fans) who would be interested in attending regular FLOW showcases and seeing it added to more vaudeville/variety/cabaret sets (instead of the majority all burlesque or other well known traditional classics) in order to increase the market of available paid gigs to be less cut throat competitive due to the oversaturation of often overly ambitious amateur artists ~ challenge ourselves to create new choreography and performance sets without relying on the danger/wow factor of using fire tools ~ meet others & network with each other in order to gain experience, mentorship, and open the lines of communication with each other so that we can build collaboration possibities, gig sharing, and general friendliness & respect for one another instead of stepping on others and driving down the market by the practice of intentionally or unknowingly underbidding each other which although may be one of the fundamentals of capitolism it goes against our personal principles, the philosophy of FLOW, and ultimately harms the potential of our aspiration to DO WHAT WE LOVE for an actual theoretical "living" instead of mere hobbyist.
Sign up form to Participate is pinned to both the top of this event page & under the tab "Sign Up Now" on The Seattle FLOW Showcase page. ALL ARE WELCOME!!! 🙂
