Anthony Williams, aka Addison Groove, started out life under a different pseudonym altogether. Recording as Headhunter with an LP and 12” releases on the influential Tempa label stretching back to 2007, he achieved legendary status within the dubstep scene. His work at the deeper end of the spectrum graced the label an impressive seven times, a figure matched only by luminaries such as Skream. This work looked as though it would continue until 2012, when, seemingly out of nowhere, he crafted one of the biggest bass music tracks of the decade, “Footcrab,” under the new name of Addison Groove.

The response to “Footcrab” was phenomenal, receiving critical and commercial success in equal measure across the dance music scene. Getting plays not only from the dubstep DJs that Williams was used to reaching, it also found its way into the record boxes of techno and house heavyweights such as Aphex Twin, Surgeon, Ricardo Villalobos and Mr. Scruff, bringing an enormous new audience to his music in the process. Taking influences from the Chicago ghetto tek and juke scenes, Addison Groove’s impact on UK bass music has been colossal and unprecedented, sparking a huge interest in these styles from his peers and the listening public alike.

Progressing at a breakneck pace, he was quick to develop a live 808 show which has graced some of the finest nightclubs in the world including Fabric, London and Berlin’s infamous Berghain. With his hectic touring schedule including USA, Australia, New Zealand, Asia and numerous dates in Europe, he continues to bring his hybrid sound to captivated audiences across the globe.

Addison Groove will release his debut album Transistor Rhythm on Berlin’s 50WEAPONS on April 3rd.

50 Weapons will post a track snippet on Soundcloud each week until the release date.
