Well HELLO, and welcome back to another fantastic edition our ceaseless journey to bring you some of the best and most interesting drum and bass! The NAP DNB fam had another delightful evening of fun and drums in The BASSMENT at Sky Bar in downtown Indy on Saturday and owe everyone who turned out to groove on the dance floor a BIG thank you!
The team of Num3k1k, Phsyko-lojik and Gizzmo on the decks covered a wide variety of dnb subgenres while DJ E-Clyps housed the faces off of everyone while they jacked their bodies till exhaustion. Don’t feel TOO badly if you missed this month’s shenanigans; we’ll be serving it up for ya in a big way next month, so keep your eyes and ears peeled for the details on that coming SOON.
This week’s flavor is stocked full of intricate drum work and playful jazz licks. Brijawi’s style ranges from roughneck Ragga to the moody darkness of drumfunk, which very much hits in the sweet spot for me. We are truly lucky to be graced with this hour and change of a Live PA set that features his original tunes out on Omni Music, Hi Headz and Monochrome Recordings, among others. As a regular listener of the Monochrome Recordings podcasts, I knew I’d be digging the vibes in here big time, and I was correct and extremely pleased. Not so much on the dance tip, but if you were one of those die-hards who was out at several different parties all weekend and are ready for some headiness to chill to, THIS is the one you need. Dig in, vibe out and let this one wash away the reality that today is Monday and the grind is once again demanding your attention.
