From his myspace
Hailing from Perth the epicenter of the Australasian drum and bass scene, ShockOne aka Karl Thomas is fast becoming one of D&B’s major talents. From his origins in a band with Rob & Gareth from Pendulum, through to his recent assault on drum and bass dance floors worldwide, his musical energy and expression is powerful to say the least.
Karl quickly found his own voice in the drum and bass sound, which culminated in his first two singles being picked up instantly by DJ Friction for his Shogun Audio imprint, in the shape of "Silverscreen", and the party smasher "It's .. putting out a devastating 12" for Andy C's Frequency label, in the shape of "The riddler" and "We be droppin this", which saw his sound gain airplay on BBC Radio 1.
2008 saw ShockOne continue working with the mighty Viper Recordngs, and put out the electro tinged 'The Calling' smashing dancefloors all over the world, and the cheeky led zeppelin sampling 'Way you move' which held stead in crates months after release. 2008 also saw Shockone take out 'best tune of the year' at the Perth dance music awards for the second year running, this time with Phetsta for the tune 'The sun', as well as 'best drum and bass dj' and 'best broken beat producer'.
With two European tours now under his belt Shockone is not slowing down in '09. Only 3 months in we see the release of a self titled EP of gargantuan proportions. 'The Shockone EP' really sees the producer take his growing sound to the next level. Having already gained regular airplay on BBC Radio 1, and being play listed on the BBC Asia network this eclectic release of drum and bass and dubstep simply rocks all corners of the dancefloor.
2009 is set to be a colossal year for ShockOne with a full-length album in the works.
