From the event post:

Original Sin

Original Sin is the new production alias of Adam Tindall (one half of the now defunct Generation Dub/G Dub/Double Zero). Original Sin’s “Don’t Be Silly”, “D for Danger” and “Ra! (Original Sin Remix)” have helped him establish his individual production style. Two songs have been released under Adam’s second alias (Killa Hurt) on Frontline Records. In late 2009, Original sin released his first album ‘Grow Your Wings’ which was critically acclaimed by the likes of Grooverider and DJ Hype. In 2009 Original Sin was awarded Best New Artist in DNB awards… Thanks to these many acheivements. Original Sin has now become one of the leading names in the drum and bass scene.

DJ Maniak

Now he’s teamed up with his girl, DJ Maniak, who’s been rocking the Canadian seen for many years and now on the up and up with her production and DJ skills…”

Compression SF with Bryan Gee, Danny Wildchild, Trillbass + more (02.19)

San Francisco- The local bad boys of bass, Compression SF are back this month with another installment of face-melting good times over at 103 Harriett!




Holy f***ing shiite, it’s the DUKE of drum and bass, BRYAN GEE. As head honcho of V RECORDINGS, BRYAN GEE discovered and signed everyone from RONI SIZE to KRUST to DJ DIE to DJ MARKY from Brazil.

As a DJ, though, GEE proves time and again that nobody DJs drum and bass as well as him. The man is a motherf**king drum and bass WIZARD. A larger-than-life, stoned to the bejeesus belt, upside-down NINJA of ultimate bass funkification. And just like he’s been rocking his legendary London club night MOVEMENT for the last decade, GEE is coming to COMPRESSION once again to remind everyone of just how that sh*it is done.

Check out a blistering recent live set from BRYAN GEE here:


Or peep out a mix of V RECORDINGS classics, performed here on Grooverider’s radio show a few months back

COMPRESSION also welcomes back resident DANNY THE WILDCHILD. Another drum & bass legend, the WILDCHILD has been rocking stateside audiences like a hurricane for well over 15 years. Chopping, scratching, flipping and otherwise FUNKING UP the turntables in ways you never thought possible, the WILDCHILD takes the bouncingest tracks you ever heard and bounces them harder.

Like BRYAN GEE, the WILDCHILD is only ever aimed at rocking the dancefloor. So limber up! This night is going to work your shit out!

Get at DANNY the WILDCHILD’S classic “JUNGLE BOOK” mix here:

Also on the night are COMPRESSION resident badasses 2 CENTS, LUKEINO, MC AX!OM and THE COLONEL MC.
