About The Sargents
Melbourne-born DJ/producers Jason Forte and Jefferson Sheppard formed The Sargents to bring together their love of uplifting, driving progressive house and techno and present it to the world.
Since then, The Sargents have brought their unique amalgam of techno and progressively-infused house to a variety of venues across Melbourne, including Brown Alley, Q Bar, Boutique, Room 680, Circus and Eve, among others. In July 2007, they won the KissFM DJ competition. They have played at the official Stereosonic and Tiesto: Elements of Life tour afterparties, and have supported internationals such as Stonebridge (SWE), Martijn ten Velden (NL), Meck (UK), Steve Murano (DE), Utah Saints (UK) and of course, some of Melbourne’s best DJs such as TV Rock (Grant Smillie and Ivan Gough) and John Course.
Their aggressive mixing and enthusiasm behind the decks results in an amalgam of progressive, electro and techno and is translated into their work in the studio. Not just a DJ act, The Sargents also perform live on occasion, with an array of drum machines, synthesizers and controllers to go with their Ableton Live setup. Their performances include not only an array of remixes and edits, but much of their own original material.
The duo continues to play their unique blend of progressive house in Melbourne, with an eye firmly on the European dance landscape. Meanwhile, The Sargents will be touring the USA in December and January, where they will be playing numerous luminary clubs in Los Angeles, Miami, Orlando and the surrounding areas.

The Sargents’ debut EP, The Overflow, released July 2009 on Alicia Records, has been an underground sensation, reaching no. 3 overall on TrackItDown (no. 1 most purchased progressive house track), charting on DJ Downloads, DJ Tunes and several other stores, and selected as the “Summer Hit” for Virgin Megastores in Germany, France and Switzerland. Mostly recently, the track has been played across the global, including by one of the biggest DJs in the world, Markus Schulz. Their follow-up for Alicia Records, Amphibian, was released worldwide on 8 January 2010, featuring remixes by Timothy Allan, Feenixpawl and Tony Puccio.
The Sargents next single La Lacuna, a driving tech/prog track will be released in November on Australian label Long Distance Recordings, owned and managed by one of the doyens of Australian house music, Mark Dynamix (MDX).
Still in the chrysalis of their burgeoning career, The Sargents are concentrating on developing their sound and continuing to push and transcend genre boundaries, while mixing their love of performance with their compositions. While the duo continues to play their unique amalgam of techno and progressively-infused house to Australian clubs, their eyes are firmly on the international landscape, with bookings already coming from clubs in the USA and Europe. The Sargents completed their first international tour to the USA in December and January, where they played at numerous luminary clubs in Miami, Orlando and the surrounding areas, including the famous Karu & Y (supporting vocalist Keri Hilson). Their second tour of the USA and South America begins March 2010, starting with the Winter Music Conference and ending with gigs in Medellin and Bogota in Colombia.
There is plenty more on the way. One thing's for sure - the three chevrons aren't going anywhere but up.
