She even had produced her own vocal what’s rare for most vocalist she as a matter of fact I wasn’t even in the studio when she recorded it she’s very independent what’s a great plus point because that way she can edit her vocal the way she wants to have it. It is also very efficient.

Q: Can you tell us more about VC Record?
JASON: This label started because I wanted to honor my late grandfather therefore I named it with his initials.

And with having my own label I can do whatever I want to do like my name says Jason McKenzy a EDM outlaw.
