Jensen Sportag

Jensen Sportag

 Nashville, Tennessee, USA

Keyboards, trashy 80's beats, post punk weirdness, & an arty sense of the absurd coalesce into a freaked-out batch of catchy songs. Exploring synth driven, hyperkinetic, melodic techno, disco, house, soul & 80's rock balladry, Jensen Sportag are an electrifying exercise in genre hopping.


Jensen Sportag is one of many ongoing collaborations between Elvis Craig and Austin Wilkinson. The Jensen Sportag sound in particular is based in two very different but sequentially important settings from their shared adolescence. One, afternoons in a car with mom's lite early 90's R&B soundtrack - and Two, endless nights spent in the warehouses of the mid 90's southern U.S. rave scene. While releases and live shows by Jensen Sportag are rare they have somehow managed to earn big fans in fellow oddballs Max Tundra who name checks Sportag in a song and remixes 2009's Cocktease; Ariel Pink who lends cover art and a vocal to Sportag's sold out self titled cd from 2008, and Classixx who were the first Dj team to start regularly including Sportag songs in live sets. Promising to come out of hiding Jensen Sportag plans live shows and many more releases in 2011.
