Shockone "A Dark Machine Tour"
Hailing from Perth, the epicentre of the Australasian drum and bass scene, ShockOne aka Karl Thomas is fast becoming one of bass music's major talents.
Since the release of 'The ShockOne EP' in 2009, which featured the chart topping 'Polygon', ShockOne has been one of the hottest names in the scene. 'Polygon' received major air-play worldwide with high- rotation play listing on Australia's Triple J radio and BBC Radio 1's Annie Mac penning it as, "the biggest drum and bass tune out". The three drum and bass tunes from the EP achieved the top 3 spots on Beatport's drum and bass chart, and 'Adachigahara's Theme' stayed at number 1 on the dubstep chart for over a month. Following this, ShockOne released his remix of the Brookes Brothers epic 'Crackdown' on Viper Recordings 'Acts of Madmen' LP which was labeled "Album of the Week" on Zane Lowe BBC Radio 1.
ShockOne followed up his debut EP with his highly anticipated 'Re-Fix EP', a collection of VIP's and remixes of the massively successful 'ShockOne EP'. The EP featured Phetsta's dubstep remix of 'True Believer' which was featured in Pendulum's 2010 Essential Mix on Radio 1, as well as the Dirtyphonics remix of 'Polygon' which was featured on Andy C's 'Nightlife 5' mix, as well as hitting #1 on the BBC 1Xtra charts. Following on success of two massive EPs under his belt, ShockOne's remix discography began rapidly expanding, with mixes for: Netsky, Chicane, Cutline, Mutya Buena & Agent X, Skepta, and Ayah Marar.
