Source Direct

Source Direct, aka Phil Aslett and Jim Baker, are one of drum and bass' imperative duos, who from the mid to late nineties produced some of the most complex d&b ever conceived. Alongside Goldie's Metalheadz imprint, both Aslett and Baker opened up a new arena for the 160bpm boundary back in the nineties, one that exuded a grittier aesthetic and focused on providing a more intimate experience. Although having made quite an impact across the d&b circle, their unique approach to publicity allowed them to be quite removed from the scene, taking on more of a back seat role but providing outputs to the likes Storm, Goldie, Fabio, Grooverider and LTJ Bukem.

Fast forward to the present, with a brand new studio to play with, not only will there be a re-issue of Black Rose together with the incendiary techno remix from Blawan to be released as a joint project between Source Direct and Nonpls Records, but the producer will also be high in demand through the course of 2015 with a fleet of forthcoming sets across the UK and Europe.
