Stereoboard Speaks to Audio Ahead of Sounds of the Baskerville

Wednesday, 19 March 2014 Written by Elliott Batte

Gareth Greenall - aka Audio - is without doubt one of the biggest names drum and bass has to offer right now, having shown in the past couple of years that his production is on par with the likes of Noisia and Black Sun Empire, and that his DJing ain’t too bad either.

But, back in the days when ‘Audio Headroom’ was the difference between greenlining and (gasp in horror) redlining, he was still smashing up raves and record stores both as part of Resonant Evil - in which he was the head honcho - and as an artist in his own right. Now, he has rightfully claimed a spot as one of the scene’s elite forces.

So, if DnB floats your boat, you owe it to yourself to go and witness one of his sets, where he’ll usually be spinning three decks. One place you can catch him doing SBactly that is Drum and Bass Award for Best Record Shop winner Catapult Records’ first ever festival Sounds of the Baskerville (alongside a dangerously good line-up of DJs), but ahead of that, we’ve decided to get in touch for a chat before he lets the music do the talking.

SB: What have you been up to now we’re well and truly out of the holiday season? Is the studio seat warm?

Audio: Yeah I'm back in the hot seat. I don't really take time away from the studio as I enjoy it so much.

SB: We always like to ask about new albums, but you put out LP #4 ‘Force of Nature’ last year. What have you got in the pipeline in terms of projects and creations?

Audio: There's always tunes coming from the studio, it won't be long before my NSBT project is announced, but for now it's all hush hush!

SB: We’re just getting used to 2014, but we don’t want to forget about 2013 either. What did you do on New Year’s Eve - did you play anywhere cool?

Audio: I was in Belgium on NYE for Star Wars, one of Belgium's biggest and best promotions  

SB: Was it the party of the year, and if not, what was?

Audio: Party of the year probably has to be Let it Roll in the Czech Rep in August last summer, it was immense!

SB: As usual in Britain, we’re holed up with the heating on waiting for the sunny months to come our way. You’ll no doubt be busy at the festivals this summer - what have you got pencilled in?

Audio: Boomtown, UAF, Let It Roll, Dour (TBC), Tacticz, A summer tour planned in Australia/ NZ, Maxim Festival Belgium, Dreambeach and so many more.

SB: As mentioned, one event we’re most excited for is Sounds of the Baskerville. You’re headlining alongside Marky, Break, and Rockwell, are you looking forward to it?

Audio: I absolutely cannot wait, been a very long time since I played in Wales, and with my name being Gareth, it's like my spiritual home!

SB: What makes DJing at a festival better than in a nightclub?

Audio: It's not always to be honest, I've played amazing shows at both festivals and clubs, as long as the system is weighty and the people wanna party it's all good.

SB: Finally, we’re loving your Fabriclive Mix (readers, you can check it out below). Tell our readers what they can expect.

Audio: Lashing drum and bass!

As you can tell, Audio’s got a lot of big things lined-up for 2014, and one of the best events he’ll be hitting is Sounds of the Baskerville as headliner. If you need tickets, you can find a pair here - check out his Fabric mix below to get you in the mood!
