Ashley Beedle – Top 10 Young Producers To Watch Out For!
There are a handful of people who’s names are so synonymous with the UK electronic music industry that without them it would have a very different feel, one of those names is most definitely Ashley Beedle. If you have been djing or music collecting for a while it is highly likely that you will have a multitude of Ashley’s productions tucked away in your collection. A DJ since the late 80’s Acid house scene Ashley was involved in some of the key acts UK of the 90’s including the chart conquering X-press 2, the incredible Black Science Orchestra and the energetic Ballistic Brothers. His presence was such in the 90’s that he even garnered a mention in Daft Punk’s teachers. Since then he has produced a raft of incredible tracks, been a regular remixer for some of the hottest acts on the planet and DJ’d regularly all over the globe as well as remixing tracks on the F*CLR label, which is owned + run by his partner, Jo.
We caught up with Ashley ahead of the release of the labels next EP by super hot act Blazers which features four tracks of sublime French House. We asked him to recommend 10 must have tracks from up-and-coming acts that he thinks are going to blow up in 2018.
