|Real name / ||Jasonlaidback Laidback|
Slyde cut their teeth releasing a string of bullets on the world-renowned Fingerlickin’ label. From their debut, ‘Slippidy Slide’ to the outrageous ‘Sex n Drugs’, to the huge ’Kiss Kiss Bang Bang’, each received extensive radio play on XFM, KISS 100 & Radio 1.
The duo have gained a reputation for innovative re-edits & bootlegs in their DJ sets as well as writing banging original tunes now released on their own offshoot label SLYBEATS. Their most recent smash single in May 2010, ‘Move Ya Body’ dominated the Beatport charts, staying at no.1 for weeks.
Slyde’s dynamic DJ skills have seen them in demand at the worlds coolest clubs & festivals, opening at Glastonbury for Annie Nightingale’s show on Radio 1, touring Australia, Asia & Canada, playing Glade, Miami WMC, parties in San Francisco for Burning Man & rocking the world famous Womb Club in Tokyo, whilst regularly smashing it on the London scene at Fabric, Matter & Ministry of Sound.
Slyde’s ability to push the boundaries resulted in the album ‘Everyone’s entitled to our Opinion’ which featured a whole host of vocalists from MC Sirreal to their long time collaborator, Jamaican MC Lady Posh. The album was hailed variously as ‘An Aural House Party’ (IDJ), ‘Exploring the outer reaches of Filthy Crunkin Electro’ (DJ mag) and saw the duo being dubbed ‘The New Kings of Electro Sleaze’ (F*@K! magazine).
