ASC - The Pursuit / Frozen Shore [Nerve021]

ASC has built a strong reputation for himself in the dnb scene as one of the scene’s finest producers of deeper beats, from early releases on influential labels such as Bukem’s Looking Good in 2001 through to his present day affiliation with Instra:mental’s Non Plus, he’s stuck to his guns and kept his music on the deeper side.

We were very proud to welcome him onboard the good ship Nerve for this release – the aside “The Pursuit” is a lovely futuristic, spacey stepper with a tech house 4/4 breakdown in the middle which always surprises a few people! For the flip, he delivered “Frozen Shores” – a lovely slice of deep drum n bass with lush atmospherics and a slightly growly bassline which hints at underpinned aggression. Amazing stuff.
