Artist / Band / Musician
A true veteran DJ, producer and engineer, A Sides has over 500 released tracks to his name making him one of the most prolific and versatile artists in drum & bass. Over the course of his extensive career, A Sides has never limited himself to a single style and has proved to be a highly capable selector whether drawing for dubstep, hip hop or old school drum & bass.

With a flexible approach in the studio too, he's produced tracks for Metalheadz, Bingo, Hospital, Tru Playaz, Valve and Innerground to name a few, plus of course his own long running Eastside imprint.

Reaching out with a sound that has truly global appeal, A Sides has toured the world over and has already touched down across the USA, Europe and South Pacific this year. Watch out for a Sci-Clone tour with Nathan Haines this Autumn, more from his new label BassHead Music, plus forthcoming Eastside releases in 2009, including his second solo LP featuring a whole host of high profile collaborations.

Extended biography:

Jason Cambridge (aka A Sides) has been producing music since 1990 and has released well over 500 tracks to date across many of the scene’s biggest labels. He established his own label Eastside Records in 1996 and has since put out over 80 releases, including two compilation albums (Eastside Jamz Volumes 1 & 2) as well as the A Sides solo album "Follow The Groove."

A highly accomplished engineer as well as an artist in his own right, A Sides has collaborated with the likes of Calibre, jazz musician Nathan Haines (under the guise of Sci-Clone) and most recently Makoto, Kevin Sawka, Deeizm and DJ Marky. His long

standing partnership with MC Fats has borne some of his biggest tracks to date, including the massive hit "What U Don’t Know" which featured on A Sides’ debut long-player in 2003. To catch the pair performing live is to hear drum & bass at it’s

finest, with the deep soul sound of MC Fats bringing the perfect compliment to A Sides razor sharp beats.

With tracks released on many other labels such as Metalheadz, Valve, Tru Playaz, Bingo, Innerground, Reinforced, Advanced, Liq-weed Ganja and Hospital to name but a few, A Sides has a discography of truly epic proportions. A veteran of the scene from the early days, through hardcore to jungle to drum & bass, his influence has been immense.

Over the years he’s taken on the role A&R for many labels, including of course his own imprints Fuze and Eastside, and was among the first to recognize and nurture the talent of producers such as Break.

Always moving forward and shaping new styles, in 2008 he established BassHead Music together with Juan BassHead aka DJ Burn to showcase the finest in dubstep and bass heavy beats. After a successful debut (feat. 12th Planet and Skream) there are releases lined up from Otto Von Schirach, Noah D feat. Einstein, Total Science and Datsik plus remixes being supplied by high profile artists such as Jakes, Break, DJ Sneak and Bassnectar. With a diverse music policy, encompassing not just dubstep but other

bass-heavy beats, BassHead has some exciting projects in the making over the next 12 months.

A Sides has also recently added a digital arm to Eastside Records and made the entire back-catalogue available for mp3 download from digital store Beatport. He's also produced a mix CD for Twisted Individual's Liquid Allsorts label, featuring

vocals from Deeizm as well as the track "Just Be" from the duo.

With a reputation for sets that are tight and technical sets as well diverse, A Sides is a natural ambassador for Rane Serato Scratch Live. From road-testing new equipment on performances across the globe to conducting workshops, such as those at Sun and Bass Festival in 2008 and events at Miami Winter Music Conference, A Sides has strong links with the company and shares a forward-thinking outlook.

A Sides career as a DJ has taken him worldwide, playing in over 200 cities in over 40 different countries. This year he'll be taking part in the 15 years of Metalheadz tour as well as linking up with Nathan Haines to perform as Sci-Clone live. A Sides is also working on his second album, which promises to be something special featuring new material and collaborations with Break, Cozmo D from Newcleus, Deeizm, Shadowhuntaz, MC Kemo, MC Fats and a "Tokiado" remix by Spirit.
