AC Slater... You Got The Love.

I've been consistantly impressed with AC's output of late, there are some producers that put out quantity in hope to gain momentum that way, and some who go for a more minimal approach with fewer releases, focussing a little more on perfection. Then there is Aaron AKA AC Slater, without a doubt my favourite producer of the last two years.

His ability to churn out the remixes and original works at such a high standard is testament to his longevity as a Producer, and then here his longevity as an outstanding DJ and connoisseur, which comes into play, here. Being over the pond in NYC could sometimes leave you slightly at bay from the European/UK scenes, but with Starkey keeping that locked down well, AC is able to reap the rewards of now branching into the UK Bass scene and still maintaining his ties with the Heavy Bass scene in the Big Apple.

With two new releases coming out way on Trouble & Bass soon; Take Me, featuring Ninjasonik, his Calm Down series and Transatlantic Riddim with Mumdance on the way as well, 2010 is going to be another profitable year. Due to working commitments the last two times AC has played in London, I've been unable to see him, yes I want to shoot me as well, but rest assured come T&B's next residency at Fabric (I hope it continues into 2010) I shall be there. Anyway less about my incessant love and more about his new fantastic exclusive mix for Bestival festival's Besti-Blog. A great half hour mix up of new Techno, UK Bass, bass heavy House and Old Skool naughtiness.

That's also the best promo pic for a DJ the world has ever known... git.
