Augustine Verrengia aka ONE4ALL, is in hot pursuit of the burgeoning bass scene. Since its inception in 2009, the Texas native has been blowing up dance floors and subs alike with his eclectic mix of glitched-out beats, swooning synth, and toned-down dubstep stylings. The live-instrumentalist and self-described “multi-genre” artist thrives on variety and every track challenges himself to create new sounds furthering his commitment to diversity and the element of surprise. ONE4ALL proclaims music’s transformative power to be key inspiration–the process of turning what is sometimes a barrage of seemingly colorless emotion into something positive, using it to enrich the lives of others. It’s alchemical, in a sense.
ONE4ALL has rapidly gained notoriety as a skilled composer and sought-after remixer in the blossoming realm of electronic dance music production. He has revamped tunes from such noted artists as J.Cole, Phil Collins, Beat King and Stephan Jacobs. And his take on the Hopscotch track “Emotion” landed him top spot on the Dubstep.NET charts. ONE4ALL is no stranger to collaboration with notable tracks made with Sugarpill, Psymbionic, and The Digital Connection. ONE4ALL has shared the stage with many well-renowned acts, including Bassnectar; Pretty Lights; Paper Diamond; Michal Menert; Zed’s Dead; The Polish Ambassador; and Crizzly. He has also performed alongside the likes of Bluetech, ill-esha, Phutureprimitive, and Break Science–just to name a few. Not confined to the club ONE4ALL has been making the festival apperances at some of the nation’s most respected events, including Insomniac’s Nocturnal Festival, SXSW, Art Outside, and The Manifestation Celebration.
Our bass-loving friend not only displays proficiency behind the decks, but behind the desk. In 2012, ONE4ALL aided in the creation of Gravitas Recordings, a record label and creative collective based out of Austin, Texas. Gravitas has been formally recognized by Symphonic Distribution, winning both “Label of the Year” and “Breakthrough Label” of 2013. And the brand continues to grow strong today, having just announced its 50th release to great acclaim. Last February, the artist gifted us Extrospect–a haunting and hypnotic five track EP with undeniable depth and weight, really serving to showcase his progression as a prodigious producer. At the moment, Augustine is likely to be found in the studio sifting through unreleased material, laying the groundwork for his highly anticipated forthcoming album. He is ONE man, crafting music 4 ALL people. Tell me… are you in?
"‘Extrospect’, the new EP from ONE4ALL,released today on Gravitas Recordings. The album marks the beginning of what looks to be a fruitful year for this native Texas producer, setting the stage for future major league endeavors. Pulling strongly from varying flavors of hip hop, each of the five tracks has a distinct style yet retains a cohesion to one another."-- High On Beats
