Jason Michael "Stillwind" Borenstein was a KONAMI employee, best known for working on the DanceDanceRevolution series. He first worked as an audio designer on DanceDanceRevolution ULTRAMIX and its sequel under the aliases of Stillwind and SuperStillwind respectively. He was then promoted to lead music director in ULTRAMIX3, and fulfilled that position as well in ULTRAMIX4.
After the ULTRAMIX series ended, Jason became the sound director of the first DanceDanceRevolution title on the Nintendo Wii, DanceDanceRevoltution HOTTEST PARTY, which was a huge hit for the system. Jason then became the sound director of DanceDanceRevolution X, making him the first - and so far only - non-Japanese person to sound direct an arcade BEMANI title. Jason would also work on DanceDanceRevoltution HOTTEST PARTY2 and DanceDanceRevolution Disney Grooves around this time as well.
Sadly, Jason Borenstein died on February 7th, 2009 from an aortic aneurysm at just 36 years old. The final video game project he worked on, DanceDanceRevolution HOTTEST PARTY3, was released eight months after his death.
- Jason, under his Michael a la Mode persona, was seen in the tutorial mode in beatmania IIDX 15 DJ TROOPERS, helping to explain how to play the game as Michael a la Mode. His voice was dubbed over by DJ Yoshitaka.
- jubeat ripples song STARLIT DUST/スティルに捧ぐ is named after Jason. The English title in jukebeat, STARLIT DUST/For The Late Stillwind, confirms this.
- According to DJ Silver, Jason was very likely behind the SLOTH MUSIC PROJECT alias, as DJ Silver produced all of Jason's covers for DanceDanceRevolution SuperNOVA2 at the same time.
