"I’m a 23 year old producer who lives just outside of Croydon and i produce house music with influences from drum and bass, garage, grime and mainly uk sounding dance music."
After cutting his production teeth with the drum and bass genre, Christian Sibthorpe went on to form the nu-rave band 'Partyshank', before moving onto the more bass-heavy side of Electro, Garage & Techno under his A1 Bassline alias. His first release, the "Girl Thing" EP was released in 2008, and immediately gained support from the likes of Annie Mac, Sinden & Kissy Sell Out.


A1 Bassline's 2nd EP "Bad Man Horror", was released on Fatboy Slim's Label Southern Fried and reached the heady-heights of number 2 in the MTV dance chart, smashing up clubs via the likes of DJs Fake Blood, Armand Van Helden, Jack Beats, Steve Aoki, Jaymo & Andy George, Bloody Beetroots & Rob Da Bank. This was followed by the 'Breathless' EP, released via Southern Fried during the summer of 2010:

In late 2010 A1 Bassline set up the label 'Tighten Up' alongside Tek-One & Kavsrave, releasing the single 'Stabs' following support from Boys Noize, Feadz, Jack Beats & DJ Zinc:

A1 Bassline's latest offering shows he's been moving with the times. 'Shock Headed' sounds like the kind of massive stripped-down dancefloor bomb you might hear on Swamp81.

Flip over, and there's more deep sub-action on '1.4.7', whose rigid house sits somewhere between Julio Bashmore's dirtybird antics and Boddika's less paranoid moments:
