Jason Cano (born June 8, 1975 in Houston, Texas) better known as DJ Kane is a Mexican American singer. He is the current lead vocalist for A.B. Quintanilla III Y Los Kumbia All Starz. He also was the lead vocalist for the Latin Grammy award winning A.B. Quintanilla III Y Los Kumbia Kings and went on to become a successful solo artist.
Jason “DJ Kane” Cano was discovered by Latin artist A.B. Quintanilla III who made Cano the lead vocalist of Los Kumbia Kings. This original lineup released six successful albums and sold an estimated five million units in total before disbanding. They had major hits with “Shhh!”, “Boom Boom”, “No Tengo Dinero” and “Desde Que No Estás Aquí” which were sung by DJ Kane.
DJ Kane was one of the original members along with Frankie J to leave Los Kumbia Kings for a solo career, and signed a contract with EMI to record and form his own group. With help from veteran musicians Roland Gutierrez and Mariano Harerra, he put together a super group with musicians from famous backgrounds and a high power show which would leave audiences shocked.
In 2004, he released his self titled first album DJ Kane which went to number 8 on the Billboard charts with hits including “La Negra Tomasa” and “Mía”, also earning two Latin Grammy nominations for Best Urban Album and Producer of the Year.
The following year, DJ Kane released his second album titled Capitulo II: Brinca and reached number 28 on Billboard, also earning a Latin Grammy nomination for the Best Tropical Regional Mexican Album, though this award went to his former group Los Kumbia Kings which had released its live album titled Kumbia Kings Live.
In 2007 Jason released his final album as a solo artist titled Capitulo III: Ahogando Penas and in February 2008 he rejoined A.B. Quintanilla with his new group Los Kumbia All Starz when three vocalists Pee Wee, Roque, and Memo from A.B. Quintanilla’s group left.
