A.B – Biography
A.B – one of the former Nu Energy Collective’s (NEC) key in-house artists and now a major player in the newly-formed Hard Beats Collective. Having firmly stamped his sound onto the Hardcore scene throughout 2010, he is now tipped by his peers to become one of the major underground driving forces throughout 2011, due to both his versatility in the studio and creativity behind the decks.
As the label-manager and second in command to Kevin Energy at NEC HQ right up until the final 100th release, A.B is now pioneering his own ground-breaking imprint – Stamina Records – into the world of Hardcore & Freeform. And with artists such as Douglas, Arkitech, Solution & Nick 235, Endemic, and more already supplying hit music for Stamina, the future of this young imprint is looking very prosperous indeed.
In the DJ department A.B also continues to push the boundaries, entertaining crowds with his insane douple-drop mixing, quick-fire scratching and unparalleled track selection, at legendary events such as Freeformation, to legend-in-the-making raves like MUNTED! and with plenty in-between. Plus with DJ mixes on 3 of 2011’s biggest albums – Nu Energy 100, Hardcore Underground 5 & Hardcore Adrenaline 2011 – plus a host of new productions and remixes already under his belt this year, you can expect his rapid-style mixes and scratching to hit a club near you soon.
