Ashley Beedle

Last Night a DJ Saved My Life

 

Ashley Beedle is one of those names that brings back fond memories of great tunes and great times. His work as Black Science Orchestra, Ballistic Brothers, and X-Press 2 are amongst those most treasures 12 inches I own and like a few others he’s long been a good supporter of UM with promos, or was until recently anyway! ;)

 

Beedles began back in the acid house explosion of the late 80’s, hearing names like Norman Jay on the then pirate radio station KISS FM. He joined friends Rob Mello and John Howard as Black Science Orchestra, the trio reworked the Trammps' "Where Were You (When the Lights Went Out)?" into their debut single "Where Were You," released on Junior Boy's Own. House godfather Frankie Knuckles began spinning the record, as well as the second BSO offering, "Strong" (recorded with Linsey Edwards replacing Mello). Beedle recruited engineer Marc Woolford and keyboard player Uschi Classen for a third single, "New Jersey Deep," and watched the record become a classic, selected by Knuckles and the Masters at Work team for use in their DJ sets.

 

For the Ballistic Brothers productions he teamed up with Dave Hill and Rocky & Diesel in 1994 and also began Black Science Orchestra that year and X-Press 2 too - a busy period that set him up to be one of the most respected names these days.

 

In 2014, Ashley formed the Back To The World label, signing dance legend Adamski, Serbian producer/DJ Igor Jadranin, Crazy Godz and electronic dance artist Waterson whose debut release 'Tell Me' became one of the biggest dance releases of 2015. Since 2015, Ashley has been working as part of the 'North Street' remix collective with North Street Studio One owner and musical genius, Darren Morris and Ramrock Records/F*CLR boss, Jo Wallace as well as solo remixes.

 

His discography includes labels such as Junior Boys Own, Razor N' Tape, Island, Skint, F*CLR, Ramrock Records, Strutt, Local Talk, Glitterbox, Déclassé, Imogen, Heavenly, Loop NZ, SO-UK: Music, Girls Music, Back to the World, BMG, !K7.
