BASS: Vital Elements, A-Sides launch new DNB tracks

Two of my favorite UK Drum & Bass producers are Vital Elements and A-Sides -- whose tracks are often heard in my DNB mixes -- but their 12" vinyl releases always get snapped up fast when they occasionally trickle into San Francisco Bay Area record stores. Vital Elements just completed his debut EP for Grid Recordings that you can hear and purchase online, along with the latest from A-Sides, the record label announced.

Vital ElementsVital Elements (pictured left), whose birthname is Graham Warnock, just released his debut track with Grid called "The Path Is Clear." In addition to regularly churning out DNB, Vital Elements has been making Dancehall as half of the infamous Serial Killaz. He also has his own record label V2E Recordings.

And now if you want to get your hands on upfront promos from his label, here is the place to do it -- where samples of the latest work from both Vital Elements and A-Sides (in a  collaboration with Deeizm) just went live.

Meanwhile, some recent cuts from Vital Elements' V2E label include V2E006 with the following tracks, which you can hear in the Grid Recordings store.

A: Murder Ya Bloodclart
B: The Flying Saucer

Check out more of his beats at Vital Elements' Myspace.

Looking forward, Grid Recordings said they've got a huge 12" from Heist, as well as a long awaited project from Twisted & Zen. On the Allsorts imprint, Influx UK is representing with a 12" on the label and after that Allsorts' first full-length album project is dropping, which will feature tracks from A-Sides, Heist and Human Factor, among others.
