Coming off of a three week tour of Australia, a tour of North America with Feed Me, a handful of parties in Miami, and a recent relocation to Los Angeles, AC Slater comes back hard out of the studio with the bass-heavy Electro release, Sidewinder, due out on Brooklyn’s Trouble & Bass Recordings on May 8th. Sidewinder features a two-pack of originals from AC, along with a pair of big and bassy remixes from pals Drop The Lime and RackNRuin. Just what you’d expect from a member of the T&B family, AC Slater delivers some low-end Electro that begs for a massive system. Get it into you after the jump. Continue Reading
This past Friday we had the whole Trouble & Bass crew take over CONTROL @ The Avalon, led by head honcho Luca Venezia aka Drop The Lime. If you missed this earlier this week like I did, Luca released a Winter Afterhours mixthats simply the cat’s meow. Packed with vintage styles of rock, electronic, blues, and reggae blended to create “house for the drive home.” Great for background music (when you wanna leave something on in your room, ya know) and definitely a cool change of pace for the Brooklyn badman.
I’ve always felt like CONTROL at the Avalon provided a home away from home situation for the Trouble & Bass crew. Drop The Lime and AC Slater were some of the first acts that I ever saw at CONTROL, and it’s been great watching the artists and the party grow up together over the past 3 years. This week, the Heavy Bass Champions will return once more to 1735 Vine St. for a full-on takeover, featuring DJ sets from Drop The Lime, AC Slater, Star Eyes, The Captain, and Samo Sound Boy. What a lineup, right? Right.

If you haven’t heard yet, AC Slater has teamed up with Dell Harris on a project called AC & Dell. It features music written and produced by AC Slater and vocals by Dell as well as a few guest appearances from Drop The Lime, Ninjasonik, Megan Thomas, and more. The guys have been kind enough to give you the entire album for free as well as let you see the exclusive for their brand new video for ‘Right Now.’ If you can make it out this Friday, make sure to catch AC Slater’s set as Dell will be hopping on stage to do a few of their songs live. Here are a couple of my favorites from the album. What do you guys think about their new venture?
