NATURAL SELECTION 003
(Eastside | Bassdrive | Metalheadz | Serato)
true veteran DJ, producer and engineer, A Sides has over 500 released tracks to his name making him one of the most prolific and versatile artists in drum & bass. Over the course of his extensive career, A Sides has never limited himself to a single style and has proved to be a highly capable selector whether drawing for dubstep, hip hop or old school drum & bass. A Serato ambassador and truly global citizen, he's often found in-between bases in the UK, USA and NZ yet still finds time to run his labels Eastside and BassHead Music. In 2010, he followed up his second LP "Worldwide" with the massive bassline roller 'One DJ' for Clear Skyz, proving once again he can smash dancefloors at will with his productions as well as DJ skills.
Jason Cambridge (aka A Sides) has been producing music since 1990 and has released well over 500 tracks to date across many of the sceneís biggest labels. He established his own label Eastside Records in 1996 and has since put out over 75 releases, including two compilation albums (Eastside Jamz Volumes 1 & 2) as well as the A Sides solo album "Follow The Groove." A highly accomplished engineer as well as an artist in his own right, A Sides has collaborated with the likes of Calibre, jazz musician Nathan Haines (under the guise of Sci-Clone) and most recently Makoto and DJ Marky. His long-standing partnership with MC Fats has borne some of his biggest tracks to date, including the massive hit "What U Donít Know" which featured on A Sidesí debut long-player in 2003. To catch the pair performing live is to hear drum & bass at itís finest, with the deep soul sound of MC Fats bringing the perfect complement to A Sides razor sharp beats.
With tracks released on many other labels such as Metalheadz, Valve, True Playaz, Bingo, Innerground, Reinforced, Advanced, Liq-weed Ganja and Hospital to name but a few, A Sides has a discography of truly epic proportions. A veteran of the scene from the early days, through hardcore to jungle to drum & bass, his influence has been immense. Over the years heís taken on the role A&R for many labels, including of course his own imprints Fuze and Eastside, and was among the first to recognize and nurture the talent of producers such as Break.
Always moving forward and shaping new styles, in 2008 he established BassHead Music together with Juan BassHead aka DJ Burn to showcase the finest in dubstep and bass heavy beats. After a successful debut (feat. 12th Planet and Skream) there are releases lined up from Otto Von Schirach, Noah D feat. Einstein, Total Science and Datsik plus remixes being supplied by high profile artists such as Jakes, Break, DJ Sneak and Bassnectar. With a diverse music policy, encompassing not just dubstep but other bass-heavy beats, BassHead has some exciting projects in the making over the next 12 months.
A Sides has also recently added a digital arm to Eastside Records and made the entire back-catalogue available for mp3 download from digital store Beatport. He's also produced a mix CD for Twisted Individual's Liquid Allsorts label, featuring vocals from Deeizm as well as the track "Just Be" from the duo.
With a reputation for sets that are tight and technical sets as well diverse, A Sides is a natural ambassador for Rane Serato Scratch Live. From road-testing new equipment on performances across the globe to conducting workshops, such as those at Sun & Bass Festival in 2008 and Miami Winter Music Conference 2009, A Sides has strong links with the company and shares a forward-thinking outlook.
A Sides' career as a DJ continues to take him around the globe, clocking up airmiles with regular annual tours of Australia, New Zealand, the USA and Europe. A regular at high-profile events like Miami WMC and Sun & Bass festival in Sardinia, his passion for drum & bass is as strong as it ever as he represents the music he loves worldwide.
