Source Direct Recordings (Complete Label)


Source Direct is a drum and bass band from St Albans in the United Kingdom, consisting of Phil Aslett and Jim Baker. Source Direct's music would best be described as dark drum and bass, with a similar sensibility to Photek, but with a slightly harder edge. They 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 more percussive assault than the laid-back jungle artists. They described their work as music made in the present for listening at any given time, quoting Goldie's "Timeless" album as a perfect way to sum up what they meant.

Controlled Developments is an EP by drum and bass artists Source Direct, which was released November 4, 1997. The album is comprised entirely of previously released singles

The track, "Call & Response", appeared in a scene from the 1998 film "Blade" in which the track is being listened to, on headphones, by the villain, Deacon Frost (Stephen Dorff), whilst he searches a library's archives. However, the song did not appear on the film's soundtrack.

James Baker from Source Direct was arrested in late 2010 when he stole a mobile telephone from my mothers Doctor surgery. He was trying to get treatment for his drug problem and stole things when she left the room. Quite a sad story :(
