The vision was clear… Revered veteran Jason Cambridge, also known by his pseudonym A Sides, wanted to encapsulate his two and a half decades of experience within Drum & Bass through this next release. Having honed his craft, becoming one of the most prolific artists within the genre, his production standard ensured his position within its fabric. And now, over five consecutive sectors, he’s about to unleash a full colossal catalogue of work. Whether it be the new sonic masterpieces he’s worked over tirelessly, or the dubplates which have matured finely with age, it’s his most resounding output to date.
Aptly named to demonstrate the time frame which his career has stretched over, the albums design is just as imaginatively calculated. The LP logo contains images of much of the musical equipment used to manufacture his signature style. Each release signifies a passing of time, every standalone sector which makes up the album features different mixers, speakers, samplers and other tools which reflect the different stages of his progression.
‘Tokiado Revision’ presents something vastly different. Creeping in its depth, built up coatings and rattling symbols keep it driving forward. Phantom like but still holding the aggression undertaken by its steely drums, you’re exposed to A Sides refinement. He’s able to master the art of constructing a record that is as subtle as it is heavy hitting, indicating his vast production capabilities, garnered through years of graft.
