A1 Bassline, comes with a new release on his own imprint Source Unknwn, Slur b/w Slingback.
His latest release "Why Do You" out on Claude Von Stroke's DirtyBird, following the huge success of the "Buoyancy/Falsehood" EP on the same label, both releases were met with glowing reviews.
His musical aspirations originate from genres such as garage, and drum and bass. He was a regular attendee of "Technicality", a forward thinking club night paying homage to the metalheadz blu note night. Along with A1, Ben UFO, Fold, Breakage were a regulars. Although he makes music under the house banner, you can clearly hear these influences in all of his own material. Essex born, but growing up in south Croydon, he would frequent record shops such as the legendary Big Apple, Swag and secondhand store Beanos, buying garage, grime and drum and bass records.
Having had his first 12" release at the age of 17, things have certainly come a long way, since then having numerous singles out and touring the world. His sound has progressed over the last few years to something he is more content with now. His latest few releases have been played by top DJs across the board leading him proudly to the signature of DirtyBird and now on to his own label, although further releases are planned for DirtyBird, Pets Recordings and others.
With a run of great reviews and support from Dj Mag, iDJ, Fact, Knowledge, Resident Advisor….. and Dj support from a number of big names from Radio 1, XFM, Rinse FM and many more. 2012 is looking like a good year for A1 Bassline ,with plenty of new material in the pipeline.
"My new label, Sourceunknwn gives me the freedom on writing music with no boundaries, i don't really aim to go for a certain sound with it its more of a platform to not be restricted with the music I make. A lot of things can inspire me, either with a whole vibe of a song or even with a certain process of a kick drum that can excite me to get behind my computer. Its almost impossible to hear something original but I think by merging different genres creates something new and interesting, I think thats what keeps music interesting and progresses it.
Although I have releases on Dirtybird and future releases on Pets i try not to make records just for the sound of that label but it does cross my mind, I’m really happy to be a part of their crew, haven't met a more down to earth set of people in the business."
