ASC is perhaps best known as a contemporary UK drum & bass producer with a talent for atmosphere, but in the past few years his music has been completing a drift toward techno and other experiments. 2010′s style-traversing Nothing Is Certain on Nonplus grabbed the attention of music listeners across genres for its strong sonic vision, and a unique release last year on Mote Evolver placed ASC squarely in the sights of the techno tunnel visioners. The past 12 months have been particularly productive, with EPs across a range of labels. Now a resident of San Diego, ASC’s set to release Out of Sync in a few months, but in the meantime techno fans should check his January release for Perc Trax, as well as his more D&B-leaning sound for the latest release on his own Auxiliary, both embedded below.
On March 24 he was invited to DJ the first Tar & Feathered show in NYC, where he kept things moving around a dark futurist techno base. Luckily the recording fell into our hands, and we’re glad to share it with our podcast subscribers. Mostly originals.
