Aquarian Dreams with A-Sides and Makoto
Aquarian Dreams with A-Sides and Makoto

Industry veterans from both sides of the world—globetrotting DJ A-Sides from London and the Tokyo-based producer Makoto—finally release the results of their long-awaited LP project, Aquarian Dreams.

Released on their collaborative Eastern Elements imprint (a merging of A-Sides’ Eastside Records and Makoto’s Human Elements imprint) the Aquarian Dreams LP epitomizes everything you love about liquid drum & bass: soaring pianos, blissful vibes, musicality and rollers as deep as the Marina Trench. Several well-known vocalists including Riya, Robert Manos, Tali, Spikey Tee and guitarist Ena are featured, as well as a huge remix of “Searchin” compliments of DJ Marky. A-sides gives Bassrush a glimpse into the creative bond between himself and Makoto:

“The name Aquarian Dreams comes from the fact that myself and Makoto both share the same star sign Aquarius. This album is a meeting of minds, a meeting of analog and digital technology and a meeting of two different cultures and visions bound by a love for music. This is our definition of what we think is quality drum and bass music.”

As if that wasn’t enough to get you in the mood, A-Sides hits us with an exclusive guest mix that you can groove to below before heading over to the Eastern Elements Bandcamp page to grab the “Deluxe Edition” of the LP, which includes four bonus instrumentals.
