AC Slater

You'd think DJ and producer AC Slater is campaigning for a Vicks VapoRub sponsorship, the way this New Yorker (born Aaron Clevenger) brings back the sensory overload that accompanied the glorious early-'90s rave era. Plinky piano, reverb-saturated breaks, growling chords, and insatiable vocal pleas to surrender to the vigor trigger the rush as all-consuming bass hits your fight-or-flight routine. So you rush the DJ booth, fists pumping manically, needing the low-end ripple as though it's a medical-grade York Peppermint Pattie. A former happy hardcore producer and now part of the Trouble & Bass crew, Slater has learned to keep BPMs manageable, but the energy is still untamed.
