The first time we ever caught London-based DJ A-Sides, we’d already determined he was a drum ’n’ bass legend — and that was during the JNCOs ’n’ Clinton era! Half a lifetime later, A-Sides is riding the wave of renewed interest in all things bass, proving that the bro-step kids may not be entirely worthless. A-Sides always had a singular ear for finding the soul in the rough-and-tumble soundscapes of DNB, and that ear is even more unique in a scene overpopulated with new-school bass-heads who forget to look for the human element in their tracks. (Don’t forget, kids, humanity is still the essence of electronic music, even when it sounds like two toasters humping.) A-Sides is joined by a crew of local all-stars including Squake, Grey People and more.
