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!!!)

MIXTAPE MADNESS: SMOG (LA) Scion CD Sampler v.30

Los Angeles- After crushing WMC 2010 and a recent showcase on Mary Anne Hobbs’ BBC 1XTRA show, LA’s bad boy dubstep collective better known as SMOG, are back with another mix of bass-driven goodies courtesy of the folks over at Scion A/V.

The first half of the mix showcases the production talents of the squad while the latter half hands the reigns over to some of the genre’s top remixers. Both hit listeners with a wide scope of sonic palettes for your listening pleasure, with everything from DnB to Dubstep and some that fall somewhere in between…
