Nero UK sells out 2 shows in LA

Los Angeles- The folks at Bassrush are coming back with a vengeance in 2012 and they helped kick off the upcoming year of seriously bad ass events by partnering up with the team from LA Beatdown to bring NERO UK to the Music Box Theater for 2 SOLD OUT shows Dec 22nd and 23rd.

If the latest album (and the promo video from back in June) are any indicators of what someone can expect at their live show, suffice to say that this had to be one of the best shows of 2011, up there with Amon Tobin’s ISAM Live tour, which was a personal fave of mine!

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!!!)


SHELTER (SF) bringing Squake (Bassdrive), DJ Sharp + more 11.09.10

San Francisco- One of the city’s longest running weekly DnB events, Shelter, is kicking off November by bringing DJ Squake up from down south in Nashville TN, along with local support from DJ Sharp (Compression SF) and I’ll be handling mic duties for the evening.

Squake originally came up in San Diego but moved out to Tennessee back in 2005 and in ’08, he teamed up with Hunter of Legion to start the “Represent” Drum & Bass weekly in Nashville. In the Summer of 09′, Squake launched his weekly show “Represent Radio” on Bassdrive, which he hosts every Friday from 5-7PM CST.

While he spends most of his time doing A&R and Design, he has been busy in the studio working on his Debut EP since being signed to the Sine Language imprint back in 2009.

Look for Squake to step up onto the decks around Midnight.
