Originally conceived in 2012, the A-Sides project emerged as a brilliant solution to showcase the abundance of exceptional material flooding into the hands of Drumcode’s visionary leader, Adam Beyer.

As the needle drops on A-Sides, listeners can expect to be immersed in a sonic landscape that transcends boundaries. From the pulsating beats of Carl Cox to the relentless energy of DJ Rush, the intricate melodies of Kaiserdisco to the experimental sounds of Hi-Lo, this compilation is a testament to the diverse and ever-evolving nature of techno.

And, of course, Adam Beyer, the driving force behind Drumcode, offers a glimpse into his sonic universe with a track that is bound to resonate with techno aficionados worldwide.

In the realm of techno, A-Sides stands as a testament to Drumcode’s commitment to pushing boundaries and championing unparalleled talent.
