Anthony Williams began his career under the much more bass-heavy, dubstep guise of Headhunter. This project took off in 2007 with several successful releases on the influential Tempa label. Suddenly in 2010, Mr. Williams released one of the most influential bass music tracks “Footcrab” under his new Addison Groove moniker. This track began to get regular play within the dance music community including techno and house music DJs such as Ricardo Villalobos. Since then Addison Groove has been developed into not only a DJ Set, but a live 808 show as well, gracing the stages of the world’s best clubs like Fabric and Berghain.
