Indianapolis born and raised, Action Jackson has quickly established himself as one of the premier DJs in the Midwest, playing well over 200 shows in 2011. Specializing in genre bending mixes that span multiple styles of music, he is equally comfortable spinning hip-hop, house, dubstep, moombahton, indie rock, and everything in between. His productions are diverse as well, having remixed artists such as Passion Pit, Hall and Oates, and Smokey Robinson. 2011 found Action linking with emcee Oreo Jones for their collaboration “Black Fabio”, a parody of the famous model from the 80′s. In short, there’s not a crowd or party that he can’t rock including large festivals such as Forecastle, Identity Festival, and The Indianapolis 500, the largest single day sporting event in the world.
In 2007, he partnered with Flufftronix to form Rad Summer, a promotion and booking company based in Bloomington, IN. Now based in Philly and Indianapolis, RAD SUMMER has become an established name in the Midwest and East-Coast; partnering with brands such as Scion, Mad Decent, Colt 45, IHEARTCOMIX, Fresh Melt Water, Mishka etc… and booking acts such as Rusko, Benga, Flosstradamus (as performers they’ve also partnered in events for such artists as Soulja Boy, The MisShapes, DJ AM, Steve Aoki, and Girl Talk). In 2011 Rad Summer expanded to include a full fledged record label, with releases from Flufftronix, Figure, Lemi Vice, RX & Shiftee, and Dave Owen. 2012 finds the label preparing a wide variety of releases including the debut full length from Oreo Jones, a collaboration moombahton EP from Lemi Vice and Knife Fight, a downtempo release from Finnish producer Somepoe, and the return of Black Fabio.
