ONE HIT WONDER WITH ASHLEY BEEDLE

Ashley Beedle has been at the forefront off the house music scene since the early days of Acid House in the 80’s back in the UK where he comes from originally.

Ashley was turning heads with his production early on with Black Science Orchestra and then soon after that partnered up with Rocky & Diesel on a couple of different projects, The Ballistic Brothers and X-Press 2 which brought him success on both sides of the Atlantic with "The Sound".

Roll forward to today and Ashley is still as busy as ever although these days he spends a lot more time remixing 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.

We managed to pin Ashley down for a hot minute to answer our unusual one hit wonder quick-fire questions on all things ranging from Game of Thrones to EDM…

Make sure you go check him out at Karma Beach Club on the 18th May and enjoy the piece!
