Emerging out of the UK’s iconic Jungle scene in the 1990s, Drum & Bass has undoubtedly been one of the country’s finest exports over the last 30 years. In that time, the boundaries of sonic production have been pushed and explored by producers, DJs and promoters not just in the UK, but in all corners of the globe – making Drum & Bass truly a worldwide community.
With one of the most loyal and dedicated followings in the underground music scene, the love for Drum & Bass stretches far and wide. Often neglected by the mainstream, the scene has continued to thrive thanks to this incredible support from the DNB family.
On 17.4 (April 17th) we’re calling on all Drum & Bass soldiers to unite and recognise the date as Drum & Bass Day around the globe! With 174BPM the most commonly used tempo of DNB, we felt it no better fit than to hold the celebration on 17.4. So if you’re a DJ, MC, producer or fan of Liquid, Rollers, Neurofunk, Jump Up, Tech, Dancefloor, Breaks, Jungle, Half-time or any other flavour we need your support to officially recognise this day and celebrate an influential, unmistakable and iconic genre in dance music.
Make your voices heard on social media by tagging #DrumAndBassDay tell us how and where you’re celebrating from and keep an eye out on our social media pages @drumandbassday for a dedicated schedule of DNB activities in the run up to and on the day.
We hope to see you all front left very soon!
