Years later in New York, Jase would continue to self-produce music, perfecting tracks with Grammy award winning engineer Michael Brauer and more recently multi- platinum producer Steve Osborne. Glint was spotlighted by Apple on several occasions including a “Live at Soho” appearance. Rely Records, with just one artist, uniquely obtained an unprecedented direct distribution deal with iTunes. Underground music audiences quickly gravitated to Glint’s “wall of sound” since its inception. The UK Metro said to “catch them in relatively intimate surrounds before the inevitable arenas” and NME said “catch them now before they go stellar.” Blankfort produced several “simultaneously danceable and thought- provoking” (Chicago Tribune) songs in the 2000s that received international attention, including iTunes Discovery Download of the Week in 2010, live appearances on FOX TV and Matt Pinfield’s Morning Show on WRXP, as well as critical acclaim in publications such as Billboard, NME, Artrocker, UK Metro and The Chicago Tribune. The ongoing success propelled Glint to tour Europe; 10 countries in 40 days, supporting groups like MGMT, and The Airborne Toxic Event. Additional tours and shows followed in the United States, supporting groups like BT and TV On The Radio. Now, in 2012, Glint is releasing its most ambitious record to date and is seeking to work with the best in hope of breaking new ground globally, on the stage, and through the airwaves.
