The return of Ability II and his classic track “Pressure” recently re-released on Dublin based Major Problem Records (MPR) as been making big noises around the world and the dance community, notably in Berlin where it’s been getting huge playback in the clubs.
It sold out even before it hit the record stores earlier this year in February and the label then decided to press even more copies as a result of the demand for the record! For Ability II the re-release came as a surprise, an email out of the blue last year from MPR asking if they could sign the track and release it again as a 12” re-press (actually this is now the third time its been released, it was also released on a CD compilation Richard Sen Presents “This Aint Chicago The Underground Sound Of UK House & Acid 1987-1991” in 2012)
“You see, a lot of people didn’t realise that I was the guy behind this trk because it was over 25 years since it was originally released and there was no internet back then! So the track became big without a face behind it as such, of course I did plenty of gigs and shows around the UK and Europe, but still it was different back then publicity wise…but in a way that also kinda help the trk grow into this cult kinda thing”
Over the past 5 years A2 has locked himself away in his studio, writing and creating new material which was long overdue, all of which will now start flowing out in various release/collaborations/videos…“im really focusing on exploring and creating music audio videos right now, my music as always been very visual orientated so this is a natural progression for me, also with my dancing background etc…”
So its pretty exciting times ahead, Europe beckons and A2 is more than ready for the challenge, what being the workaholic that he is! It goes to show that hard work and belief in yourself does pay off, after all A2 as been creating music for well over 30 years now, so the motto is…never give up, where there’s a will there’s a way!
”one thing I must say, the support I have received from people all around the world is truly amazing and humbling, I never imagined this would happen like this, you dream of it but reality is different…I’m so thankful to everyone for all the love and support, never under estimate the power people bring man!”
