Don't be fooled by the title; D&B pioneer A Sides hasn't gone all Christian Grey on us, 50 Shades Of A is actually the sound of him celebrating his 50th birthday with eight crucial new tracks. "Raise" cuts the first slice of badboy birthday cake with a nod to the classic Bristol style, all rolling and rough around the edges. It's followed by slice after slice after slice... "Edge VIP" sees him update his 2018 Chronic banger with added bass venom, "Tower" is a pure breakbeat hurricane, "Ribs" is a twisted paranoid stepper while "Imperial" nods to a Headz style sound with dramatic cinematic tom-thumping drums. Elsewhere "Million" takes us on a dreamy vocal vibe, "Ashby" shows us A Sides' most sentimental side while "Principles" closes on a beautiful jazzy touch and ensures every flavour A Sides has been crafting since day one is repped in true style. Happy birthday A Sides.
