Hailing from Perth, the epicenter of the Australasian drum and bass scene, ShockOne aka Karl Thomas is fast becoming one of bass music's major talents.
Since the release of 'The ShockOne EP' in 2009, which featured the chart topping 'Polygon', ShockOne has been one of the hottest names in bass music. 'Polygon' received major air-play worldwide with high-rotation play listing on Australia's Triple J radio and Radio 1's Annie Mac penning it as, 'The biggest drum and bass tune out'. The EPs three drum and bass tunes achieved the top 3 spots on Beatport's drum and bass chart, and 'Adachigahara's Theme' stayed at number 1 on the dubstep chart for over a month. Following this, ShockOne released his remix of the Brookes Brothers epic 'Crackdown' on Viper Recordings 'Acts of Madmen' LP which was labeled "Album of the Week" on Zane Lowe BBC Radio 1
