Eric Hull
Profile:
E-Sassin, is a native of Los Angeles with a far-reaching background in many different styles of music. E-Sassin began his musical journey in the late ‘70s as a drummer in progressive rock and jazz/fusion bands. After moving through the heavy metal scene of the ‘80s, E-Sassin was introduced to the electronic dance scene in 1989 through the techno/ rave culture. Once he started producing dance music, everything fell into place and he has since become one of the DJ/ Producers of drum and bass in America.

In 1992 E-Sassin produced and self-released a techno album, which got the attention of Sunshine Entertainment. They approached E-Sassin to work with the groups L.A. Rave and The Movement. For a year and a half E-Sassin toured with The Movement all over the world. It was during this time that he was first exposed to jungle, which had just broken away from the breakbeat hardcore scene. By 1996, E-Sassin had made the transition into producing only drum and bass tracks. Drum and bass music wasn’t widely accepted in the States and very few domestic labels were releasing any of it, so E-Sassin started up Sound Sphere Recordings late in ’96 to get his musical productions out.

In late ’97, E-Sassin was approached by Phunckateck Communications in San Francisco to be included as part of their elite force of Producers and DJs. UFO! and DJ Abstract had heard E-Sassin’s productions and felt that he was the top-notch type of material that they were looking for to build up the Phunckateck collective. E-Sassin gladly accepted their invitation and since then Phunckateck has continued to grow, becoming one of the driving forces of drum and bass in America.
