Diary of a Drum and Bass life...

"I won't make too many speeches 'cos it's all about the music"

I’ve been listening to all the old Shogun Audio Podcasts at work and came across this forgotten gem which Friction played on the first ever podcast. This tune brings back memories of my first year at Uni, when I first got into the more deeper sounds of dnb, nostalgia <3

Thirteen previously unreleased tracks from Calibre’s extensive back catalogue makes up Shelflife 3. It features material from 1997 til 2013 and I don’t need to go on about how great it is, just buy it now!

Photo I took of the Bridge and SP:MC at Metalheadz last night in Bournemouth. Such a vibes night! Also very proud of my boyfriend Knauf and Kraig for smashing their set in room two!

Frederic Robinson has been hard at work again creating more beautiful music, this time in the form of an EP ‘Vamp’. The four track EP includes a sublime remix of ‘Mixed Signals’ by Synkro, who never fails to retain the original beauty of the track whilst adding his own magical touch. The other tracks are equally melodic and Robinson has once again shown that he is one of the most unique artists out there right now! ‘Vamp’ is out on Blu Mar Ten Music on April 7th so pre order now from Surus. 

Seriously looking forward to tonight at Roxx, Southampton. Release and Raygun are putting on a very special event that is bursting with the very best in drum and bass, hip hop and dubstep. I think it&#8217;s safe to say that this is the most exciting line up the city has seen in a while so if you&#8217;re in the south coast area and don&#8217;t know what to do tonight then head down, you wont be disappointed! 

Beautiful new track from Seba called ‘Life Is’, taken from his ‘Mesmerism’ EP which is out now on Secret Operations! 

10 days to go until Release/Raygun are back at Roxx with a truly incredible line up which features an eclectic mix of drum and bass, dubstep and hip hop. There has been a lot of excitement building for this night so make sure you&#8217;re part of it!

waitean asked: Loving this blog, big ups! What artists are you really feeling at the moment?

Thanks, that means a lot! Ermmm hard question, I really like Frederic Robinson at the moment, his tracks are so unique and Ivy Lab are just so consistent with their productions. Also Calibre, Lenzman, Anile, DLR, Gerra and Stone… The list goes on!

Fabric 7th March 2014

Friday night, where do I begin?

I didn’t see as much of the Critical line up as I’d wanted but managed to catch Blocks and Escher’s debut set and the whole of Ivy Lab which were both impeccable! Then obviously all focus turned to Calibre in room three and after seeing a fair amount of his extraordinary six hour stint on the decks, my love for him just keeps on growing. I knew what tracks I wanted to hear him play beforehand but I wasn’t really expecting it as six hours is a long time and the chances of him playing them all whilst in there was slim. As I made my way through the crowd into room three, I could already hear the unmistakable vocals of ‘They’re Wrong’ and I pretty much screamed like an excitable teenager. This was the one tune I really wanted him to play seeing as it’s all I go on about lately. A few tracks later he dropped another favourite ‘Even If’ which automatically demanded a re-load.

After spending the rest of the night going from room to room, we went back into room three to see the last of Calibre and DRS’ marathon set and the atmosphere at that point was unreal. Every single person in there, old, new, veterans and newbies were all there to witness the historical event that had just occurred. He ended the night with a new track I’d never heard before but was told it was called ‘Runaway’ Ft. Fox and as the song faded out the whole room roared and applauded with appreciation. It was definitely one of those moments I’ll look back on in a few years and be glad that I was there to see it first hand. Thank you Calibre, DRS and Critical for keeping my passion for drum and bass alive! 

It&#8217;s all about this tonight!
