AC Slater - UK Tour

Ok, so I've badgered on about AC Slater enough on this damn blog in the last year, but here's another snippet of news that applies for everyone in the UK.
I am so happy that in the past few months that AC has given up the woeful sounds of everything wobble-fied, reinventing his sound and creating something unique with his latest release Take You featuring Ninjasonik, which came out on Trouble & Bass last week. A massive fusion of Chicago House, UK Funky, old skool vibes, and heavy-bass action with a huge spectrum of diverse remixes, most notably from Drop The Lime, Urchins, Nadastrom and Tete-A-Tete.
You can watch the video for Take You and grab two of the remixes below, which were recently given away free... and you can buy the rest of the release from Juno here... top notch!

Yet to come later in the year is his Calm Down EP, with a great club mix featuring scratching from Craze, and his awesome remixes of Crookers' Cooler Couleur, Drop The Lime's Set Me Free, and his collaboration with Mumdance, Badness and 77Klash, titled the Transatlantic Riddim.
However, what's been really impressive of late is how he's been taking on the UK Bass sound, that's steadily getting more support over in the US, thanks to Starkey and B.Rich's new project Kastle.
Taking influences from all the scenes and creating his own take, with a lot of heart. 2010 promises to be a great year for AC Slater and Trouble and Bass in particular.

So, the key behind all this ranting about AC, is due to the fact that this week he is embarking on a tour of the UK, and is stopping off very nicely in London on May 1st for the Londinium warehouse party at Union Car Parks, which is a guaranteed road block.
The last three times AC has played in London, I've either been out of the country or unable to get out of working, aiding to the misery of my current life vacant of his beats so far.
He's just dropped an immense new mix for Mishka in aid for the tour, which starts on Thursday in Cardiff and finishes up in Nottingham a couple of weeks later.
Take a good swipe of the mix, with some top new exclusives, one especially from Trouble & Bass's newest signing Zombies For Money, which I really recommend.
