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 Rumor Mill: Custom 1200′s for LA DnB pioneer DJ CRS? !

According to his own Facebook announcement made earlier today:

“just got off the phone wit my homie from Technics. They wanna make me sum custom DJ CRS? signature 1200 turntables! BIG NEWS!!!! =)”

In my opinion this is HUGE for not only CRS? (aka George Ybarra) but for US DnB as a whole.  CRS? is one of the OG LA Junglists that helped push the sound that would become a driving force in the LA scene, along with DJs APX1, Oscar Da Grouch, R.A.W., and more!

Big ups to CRS?- we’re looking forward to seeing what they look like!
