FLASHBACK FRIDAY: Concentric Beats- U.S. Drum-n-Bass Documentary (2002)

Los Angeles- Back in 2002, a young aspiring documentary film maker by the name of Valida Carroll, armed with a grant and a vision, set out to capture the essence of the emerging US DnB Scene. With hops in LA, SF, SD, and NYC, she takes viewers on a 60 minute ride across the country and grabs a great slice of American DnB history along the way.

I remember when Valida was in NYC filming and I always had wondered what happened to the footage. For me it was great to see so many of my friends and people that I consider family, so young and ambitious, telling the world why 170-180BPM beats make their worlds go round. Towards the end, there’s also a VERY interesting prophecy about the future of DnB and the re-entry of 140BPM in the scene- see if you can catch it…

Big shouts to everyone that has came, went, stayed in the scene- holding it down proper, I love you all! (and super big shouts to Dave (aka Eecue from JungleScene.com) for posting this up and sharing it with the world!!!)

I LOVE LA- The Annual 420 Edition (04.18.10)

Los Angeles- For the past 3 years, there has been an annual event in LA that let’s all of us know that the Summer is just around the corner, and that means the return of SoCal’s favorite day party, I LOVE LA.

DJ APX1 and his partner-in-crime DJ CRS? along with support from Steel Lions Sound and a cavalcade of  DJs & Emcees come together the last Sunday of every month from April-October to bring you the BEST that SoCal has to offer in terms of Dubstep, Electro and of course, Drum-n-Bass.

This year is no exception and the rite of passage that we call “The Annual 420 Edition” is sure to be an event not to be missed. Whether you come for the basslines or the free cookie giveaways, you’re sure to leave the event with wobbly legs.

As soon as we hear what the confirmed lineup is, we’ll be sure to update you, but in the meantime, make sure to mark your calendars for this one!
