Bangers & Mash Week 3

This week I'm going to give you a quick guide to the man they call AC Slater. Probably one of the hottest producers in the world right now... he currently embarking on a European Tour, which includes a night @ The Egg on May 22nd with a few other UK dates line up also.

AC Slater (real name Aaron Clevenger) hails from Brooklyn, NYC and has been producing tunes since the early 00s, known for his hardcore beats, he set up Pitched Up Recordings which saw 5 vinyl releases, with his 2007 release Crowd Control making it onto Hardcore Heaven 3. However, more recently he's been a major part of the new Housey club scene, when he was commisioned to do remixes for the likes of Freestylers, Moby, Human Resource & Drop The Lime. He's most well known for his original tunes Bassline Time and Jack Got Jacked that was released on Palms Out Sounds Records, a blog for which he is a well known contributer. He's also gone on to establish another record label entitled 'Party Like Us' with a self titled release to launch the label, with Banger following suit shortly after. Although he has also kept up with his Hardcore roots, and released another three digital downloads last year on his Pitched Up label. Most recently he's released his dancefloor hit 'Rock It Out' and he's also been signed up as part of the 'Trouble & Bass' family.
The Slater has also been responsible for remixes of Drop The Lime's Hear Me, Hostage's Shake It, and the 2009 release of Show Me Love by Angello & Laidback Luke.
One of the most imprtant things to note about this dude, is his inclusion in Beatport's 'Top 6 artists to watch in 2009, not something that happens by fluke. Here's a short mix of tunes I compiled last night... enjoy!
