Best known for his work as A1 Bassline on dirtybird, Pets Recordings and on his own imprint Source Unknwn, Piers is now to release his first record under his own name.
Following last year’s delivery of sophisticated house records such as his ‘Breakaway’ EP and ‘Slur’/’Slingback’ 12″, Piers brings us a well-informed fusion of house, garage and techno, with his upbringing in drum and bass informing the percussive focus of the record.
The title tune is a lively affair, featuring a hypnotic vocal underpinned by a pulsing 4×4. On the flip is a ‘Nukke 5Two2, a steadier number with a jerking synth arrangement and urging cymbals, before closing track ‘Soul Beat Running’ further signals the mechanical drive of Piers’ A1 Bassline productions.
