A Sides has been producing music since 1990 and has released over 250 tracks to date. As well as running his own labels Eastside, Fuze and Diagram he has found time to record for other labels such as Reel to Reel, Mac 2, Metalheadz, Reinforced, Advanced, Juice, Splash, Strictly Underground and Genetic Stress. A Sides is currently working on confirmed releases for Digital’s ‘Funktion’ label and for Dillinja’s ‘Valve’ label who are, like A Sides, both known to be experts in the field of super heavy basslines.
A Sides has also been taking on a lot of remix work recently after the success of his remix of Waterhouse Dub by Digital. Further remix productions include those for Pivotal, Skunkrock Productions and the legendary Brazilian percussionist Dom Um Rumao.
The past 2 years have been A Sides most successful to date. Last year saw the release of Eastside Jamz Vol. 2, an Eastside Records compilation with contributions by Peshay, Digital & Spirit, Total Science, Calibre and A Sides himself in collaboration with MC Fats. In 2003 A Sides releases among many other tracks, his much anticipated single ‘What U Don’t Know’ featuring the vocal talents of MC Fats and Regina (July 2003) and follows up with his first ever solo album ‘Follow The Groove’ (Oct. 2003) with further productions featuring MC MC, J-Cut and his Sci-Clone partner Nathan Hines. A Sides can like no other combine soulful vocals with rolling breaks and his heavy trademark bass, thus making his tracks work extremely well on the dancefloor. A quality that a variety of top DJs have long noticed. A Sides tracks appear regularly on Grooverider’s playlists, Fabio and Andy C both licenced ‘What U Don’t Know’ for their current mix-cds.
And while A Sides is not in the studio he finds time to hold down a busy dj schedule. He has extensively toured the globe and is known for his tight mixing skills and technicality as a dj. This is mirrored in his versatile track selection. He plays across the board with his sets combining a mixture of musical flavors playing everything from Calibre and Intalex to Ed Rush and Optical.
2004 started off with a tour of Japan and one in the USA plus further gigs in Europe. Mirroring this he will be returning to the USA in autumn and also went back to Japan to record a live mix cd feat. MC Fats at his gig in Tokyo.
MC Fats has been successful for many years as MC for Eastside, Metalheadz and True Playaz alongside being resident MC for London’s super club Fabric. A good friend of A Sides and his preferred MC for dj gigs as well as in the studio, where he already delivered the vocals for A Sides’ previous hit ‘Crazy’. Those two are a truly amazing combination as anyone who had them booked together will gladly confirm. No machine-gun mc-ing here, just pure soul and expertise.
