DJ, Producer and Engineer, Jason Cambridge (aka A Sides) has been producing music since 1990 and has released well over 500 tracks to date across many of the scene’s biggest labels.

With tracks released on labels such as Metalheadz, Valve, True Playaz, Bingo, Innerground, Violence, Hardleaders, Allsorts, Grid, Reinforced, Advanced, Strictly Underground, Advanced, Just Another Label, Reel 2 Reel, Liq-weed Ganja, Clear Skyz, Spearhead, Human Elements, and Hospital to name but a few, A Sides has a discography of truly epic proportions.

A Sides established his own label Eastside Records in 1996 and has since put out over 85 releases, including two compilation albums (Eastside Jamz Volumes 1 & 2) as well as the A Sides 3 solo albums 'Follow The Groove' 'Worldwide' and "Mysterious Vibes'

A highly accomplished engineer as well as an artist in his own right, A Sides has collaborated with the likes of Calibre, Makoto, Jenna G, Break, Deeizm, Peshay, Digital, MC Kemo, KJ Sawka, Mark de Clive-Lowe, Dj Randall, Goldie, DJ Marky and Nathan Haines (under the guise of Sci-Clone)

A Sides long-standing partnership with MC Fats has borne some of his biggest tracks to date, including the massive hit "What U Don’t Know" which featured on A Sides’ debut long-player in 2003. To catch the pair performing live is to hear drum & bass at it’s finest, with the deep soul sound of MC Fats bringing the perfect compliment to A Sides razor sharp beats.

A veteran of the scene from the early days, through hardcore to jungle to drum & bass, his influence has been immense. Over the years he’s 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 to showcase the finest in bass heavy beats. After a successful debut (feat. 12th Planet and Skream) then following releases from Otto Von Schirach, Noah D feat. Einstein, Datsik, Bassnectar and Zeds Dead & The Killabits. Remixes have also been supplied by high profile artists such as Serum, Break and DJ Sneak. With a diverse music policy Basshead encompasses not just Dubstep and Drum & Bass but other bass-heavy beats. Expect more exciting projects over the next 12 months.

A Sides has been keeping himself busy in the studio since completing his last solo album. He is back in the studio again with Nathan Haines working on more Sci-Clone material and has been working on new remix projects. First up he has remixed 'Get Started' by Mark de Clive-Lowe which features Omar & Sheila E which will see release on Tru Thoughts. He has also been working with New Zealand based Pianist Kevin Field remixing 'Need You' which will see release on Warner Brothers in 2012. He also added remix duties to 'Lego' for up and coming EMI artist UK Rap sensation Lady Leshurr.

Over the course of his extensive DJ career A Sides has never limited himself to a single style and has proved to be a highly capable selector across multiple genres spanning from the most upfront Drum & Bass to Old School, Funk, Hip Hop and Soul to name a few. He has a reputation for sets that are tight and technical as well diverse. His career as a DJ has taken him worldwide, Playing in over 200 cities in over 40 different countries and every continent the world has to offer he is truly a Worldwide ambassador for Drum & Bass.

Drum & Bass record label and producers...Their cause is more than just, and odds are you're already a carrier…Either way, it's time to get down with the sickness.
Flaco
Collecting records in 1999 was the start of a serious obsession with Drum & Bass for me. I grew up in Florida, where electronic music had a very big scene, and began to write my own tunes in 2000. From there, I have been signed to over 20 international labels including Innerground, goodlooking Records & V Records. - See more at: http://www.liquidv.co.uk/artist.htm#flaco
The sounds and samples that I tend to use in my music definitely have a certain style that pertains to my production. I use a lot of R&B vocal samples and house/early techno influenced synths and pads. My goal is to get everyone on the dance floor, keep it interesting and fun enough to make the people stay on their feet. - See more at: http://www.liquidv.co.uk/artist.htm#flaco

DJ Construct
DJ Construct
DJ Construct, (Jeremy Fitzgerald) is the creator / founder of LA Drum & Bass events company XCELLERATED. DJ Construct also works with IMAGE MUZIK. Construct is a DJ, Producer, party/events organizer, promoter, and is a true duplate aficionado!

Construct has always been involved in music since his early childhood, always playing instruments and by participating in bands, then once returning to LA in 2000, Construct purchased his first pair of turntables and then decided to get more involved in the music scene. Since then, Construct has been a behind the scenes pioneer in the scene, always pushing for growth in anyway that he can.

Construct is the man who originally created some of LA's best DnB parties such as History, Champion Soundz, Legendz, as well as some other events. Construct was the first promoter to bring incredible drum and bass acts to America for the first time such as TC, G Dub (Original Sin & Sub Zero), Distorted Minds, with MC's such as Foxy & Eksman, as well as dancers such as the Narni Shakers and also a slew of many other great legends in the scene.

Construct is much like an underground United States A&R agent with many international connections, helping many artists with ideas, as well as concepts, also by helping to host such great acts as they touch on American soil. Construct has had some involvement in helping the Drum-Step DnB movement as well. In the past, Construct had a small part in productions by releasing a couple of off-shoot tunes on labels such as Shout, as well as some Remix labels. These DnB tunes got featured on such shows as BBC/Radio One and 1Xtra (Kiss FM London).

Construct has shared the stage with some pretty heavy weight DJ's here in the U.S at such events such as the WMC, as well as abroad on the UK soil. Some of these incredible DJ's have been DJ Hazard, Xample, Sub Focus, DJ SS, Grooverider, S.P.Y, Sub Zero, Original Sin, Taxman, Nicky Blackmarket, Nu:Tone, Kenny Ken, Chase & Status, TC, A-Sides, Silver, Visionary, D* Minds as well as others.

Construct for nearly a decade was manager of the well-known and World Famous "Century Club" until it closed it closed its doors back in 2007. Then shortly after that he went on to run another club until deciding to put together a small studio and to start getting more serious within the music scene by putting his own music and skills to the test by producing, collaborating and by setting up a new label.

With many great friends within the scene, a studio, over 10,000 great organized dnb tunes, and one of the most extensive incredible dubplate collections this side of the globe, Construct has a lot in store for the future of DnB, with an eager role to help raise the bar and to help more people discover good Drum and Bass music. Construct can play on 3 decks, Vinyl or CDJ's, Serato, and is a master at double drops. Construct can DJ any style of music and can mix all the different styles that Drum and Bass has to offer from Liquid, Ragga, Deep, Dark, Techy, Hard, Neuro, Classic, or Drum-Step but Construct prefers to bang out exclusive jump up anthems to make way for the future sounds that await.

Seebass
Born in Argentina, raised in Los Angeles, Seebass has always had a very deep love for music. Stemming from his parents and a long general interest in music starting from a young age. Seebass was introduced to drum and bass through a friend that went by the name of Chemist back in the early 90's. After attending early rave parties in '92 he followed the early morning music craze until he finally purchased some turntables in '97. From here he started collecting drum and bass and playing parties. Since then he has played parties in Los Angeles, New York, Miami, and San Francisco. This year Seebass will be posting new productions and free mixes to his facebook page so please check back here to stay up to date with anything he is currently involved in.
MC Questionmark
In April of 1991, the fateful visit to what has now become an institution and one of the starting places of the drum 'n' bass scene was made. Sunday Roast was held one a Sunday afternoon from noon 'til six pm, in time to get you home for Sunday dinner. Question Mark made his first pilgrimage to the event at its original location in Linford Studios. It was here that he first heard the sounds of MCing through veteran MC, Moose. There was an immediate connection to this medium for Question Mark. It was the musical direction he was leaning towards the strongest.
At Sunday Roast was the first time he heard drum 'n' bass heavy hitters, Fabio, Grooverider, Jumping Jack Frost, DJ Ron, among others. The Jungle Fever dances at the Edge Club in Coventry, England were another source for inspiration. Pirate radio stations fueled the new fascination even more. Taping programs from these stations and bringing them back to Los Angeles, Question Mark took the sounds of MC Det, Randall, Kool FM everywhere with him. His friends kept him supplied with fresh music by sending him tapes regularly.
