Source Direct started out as a production duo and later became the solo venture of founding member Jim Baker. Jim is etched into the nucleus of the UK’s electronic dance scene. His stellar discography dates back to the mid-90s across labels such as Astralwerks, Good Looking, Metalheadz, Virgin and Source Direct records. His releases stand the test of time for their visionary and futuristically twisted take on drum and bass and jungle. Such releases as Secret Liason, The Cult, Snake Style, Exit 9 and Call & Response are still regularly cited as a key influences and game changers by pioneering producers of today.
2019 sees Source Direct firing on all cylinders. At Dekmantel last year his b2b set with Paul Woolford was the talk of the festival. In the coming weeks he’s got gigs lined up at Akvárium Klub in Budapest and fabric in London. Re-releases of his 90s outings on Basement Records under the alias Oblivion are also on the way. There’s also new Source Direct material which is currently exclusive to his DJ sets. Additionally plans are in motion for the Source Direct Recordings label.
