31 RECORDS Release Out Now / METHOD ONE Greenroom Spotlight Mix

My debut on DOC SCOTT's legendary 31 RECORDS label is now in shops worldwide. The collaborative track "EDGE OF THE NIGHT" with established San Francisco-based producer METHOD ONE is also backed with a solo outing from M1 entitled "AQUAMARINE" combining to make the 44th release for the esteemed imprint. The vinyl single is available now in all fine retail outlets and can also be found for digital download at the A BUNCH OF CUTS site. An upcoming trip for me back out to the Bay Area is planned soon, so keep an eye and ear out for some future collab business on the horizon...

Keeping with this theme, the 16th installment in the 'GREENROOM SPOTLIGHT MIX' series is upon us:

On WENDESDAY, APRIL 7, 2010, I'll be shedding some light on METHOD ONE's body of original, collaborative and remix work during my 'GREENROOM' program on BASSDRIVE Radio.

A quick preview of what's in-store:

In the past two decades since he first started experimenting with sampled loops and electronics, San Francisco, California-based JASON LEDER (aka METHOD ONE) has become one of the elder statesmen of the North American Drum + Bass scene. As a DJ, he's honed his craft through hundreds of gigs stretching back to the early '90s, and can currently be heard weekly on his popular 'VINYL + CIRCUITRY' radio program Fridays on BASSDRIVE. As a seasoned promoter, he helped to throw some of the first raves and jungle events in the East Coast's Mid-Atlantic region. As a musician and prolific producer, he's responsible for numerous releases and remixes on labels such as 31, COVERT OPERATIONS, VAMPIRE, GOOD LOOKING sub-label NEXUS, RED MIST, TESTFLIGHT, OFFWORLD, ELEKTRA, and WARNER BROTHERS (among many others). In addition, METHOD ONE has found time to be both a managing partner of renown label LEVITATED RECORDINGS and also provide creative, visual solutions through his own SECONDMETHOD graphic design company.

Tune in as I dig back in time through the deep atmospherics of ATLANTIQ (METHOD ONE + KAOS's collaborative project) and bring things up-to-date with cutting-edge solo tracks, collaborations and remixes that have been doing the rounds with LTJ BUKEM, DOC SCOTT, MARCUS INTALEX, PRESHA, and many more influential figures in the scene.
