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!!!)

The DJ/MC Dubstep duo have had a busy year between playing dozens of shows up and down the East Coast including Winter Music Conference and Starscape and making their way out to Puerto Rico and Paris in the last several months but when they’re at home in Brooklyn, they hold down a residency at Brooklyn’s premier dubstep monthly, Dark Room.
