About this project

"Accidental Rhythm is my favorite radio show!! You do an awesome job at keeping my ear glued to the radio.” -Sunny Garcia, Listener in Hawaii

"I try to restrain myself from fangirl emails, but you are the reason I give KCRW money each year despite living many miles from LA. I've tracked down records after hearing the artists on your show. You have definitely broadened my horizons." -Kate Twing, Listener in San Francisco

"Accidental Rhythm is so unique. I turned several friends into fans of your show. They are now avid online listeners. Thanks for delivering consistently awesome music!” -Ravi Bendapudi, Listener in the Bay Area

"Jason Eldredge has playlists that most of us can only dream of." -Flavorpill

Accidental Rhythm is beats on the edge, musical risks, and songs that set themselves apart from the crowd. The radio show is a sonic landscape that showcases dance music and upbeat party jams with a flexible arc that takes the listener on a two-hour musical journey every weekend.

I officially brought Accidental Rhythm to the airwaves of KCRW in 2007. The name of the program is a phrase that I created describing the moment of transition when a DJ is beat-matching two separate songs together and sometimes a new rhythm "accidentally" occurs. The post-modern notion of utilizing readymades in order to create something new has always been at the heart of DJ-ing. It is fitting that the crux of Accidental Rhythm has always been based on moments of transition, as the show has seen many incarnations.

Accidental Rhythm has been a weekly radio show not only on KCRW in Los Angeles, but also on East Village Radio in New York City. At the time of the show's incarnation, iconic upscale clothing retailer Fred Segal also commissioned Accidental Rhythm to be a CD compilation, which was carried not only in their shops, but also at Starbucks, Amoeba Records, Amazon, and it was featured as part of the front page Recommendations on iTunes.

2014 marks a new chapter for Accidental Rhythm as the show will now be online as its own independent entity at AccidentalRhythm.com !

East Village Radio has announced that is closing its doors and going offline on Friday, May 23, 2014.

AccidentalRhythm.com will now be the ONLY way for you to continue to hear this unique and innovative program. 

***This new venture cannot launch without your help!***

I am a one man band. I do not currently work with a staff. I do not have any other financial backing for this show from any sort of sponsorship or other outside sources. 

There are a multitude of expenses that need to be covered in order to keep this program going: equipment costs, studio and facilities fees, production charges, engineering expenses, web site maintenance, social media upkeep, graphic design, audio and video editing for prospective artist interviews, press releases, marketing, promotion, and more...

I have met many fans from around the world who love this show and who love what I do. I feel very blessed. It is my joy to introduce new music and new artists to the world. That element of mutual discovery is incredibly gratifying! I will continue to produce quality programming and with your help, production on this new phase can start immediately.

I can't do it without your support! 

Make a donation here today and AccidentalRhythm.com will launch this summer!

Spread the word! Pass this link on to everyone you know! Together we can keep the music going.

Thank you! :)

Risks and challenges

The only foreseeable challenge of this project is financial backing. Once the project is fully funded, any unforeseeable setbacks will be handled by utilizing my extensive experience and background in the many avenues I've worked in the creative arts industries.

    A party in your honor. No, really. If you back the show at this level, I will organize an Accidental Rhythm launch party in your honor with live bands and DJ's. You can call the shots, pick the venue, and the evening will be modeled after the famed School Night events with as many big names as we can put on a bill.
