Source Direct is a drum and bass producer team from St Albans in the United Kingdom, initially consisting of Phil Aslett and Jim Baker. Source Direct are often compared with ambient drum and bass artists such as LTJ Bukem and other Good Looking Records producers, but their work displays a much darker sonic landscape with more of an emphasis of percussive assaults of syncopated breakbeats.
The duo produced singles for a variety of different labels: Metalheadz, Basement, Certificate 18, Odysee, Street Beats, Good Looking Records, and their own Source Direct label. They also released singles under other names, such as Intensity, Sounds of Life, Oblivion, Mirage and Hokusai.
Aslett had left the team by the end of 1999. Baker still records under the Source Direct name. Aslett founded the Vampire Records label in 2006 and now performs as Phil Source.Continue reading at Wikipedia... Wikipedia content provided under the terms of the Creative Commons BY-SA license
