Dear precious angel reader, can we have a small but quite serious chat real quick? Do you like starting out your week knowing with 100% certainty that at least ONE good thing will happen to your ears that day? We all know that NOTHING is certain or promised but after 4 years of uninterrupted (minus one) weeks of providing the most top shelf drum and bass we can find from all over the world, I think we can all agree that you can absolutely confident in that percentage on Mondays if nothing else. With this in mind, I need you to do a bit of a mission for NAPDNB as a gesture of your appreciation and devotion to the NAPCast. We’ve been tapping deep into the DJ wells to provide you thirsty freaks the hours of content you desire, but those wells are proving to be more difficult to tap than usual. We get everyone has lives and getting that mix done that doesn’t get any pay isn’t always at the top of the list, BUT without those amazing friends who donate a couple of their busy hours to us in the shape of a NAPCast, we don’t have a cast at all. Then things get really bad and we have to force you to listen to Gizzmo playing Messiah over and over and over and then sometimes dropping in The Nines, and then back to Messiah. So yeah, roll that one around and then onto your mission at hand: we need ALL of you to become VERY coercive and vocal that your favorite jungle and dnb DJs should throw together some mixes for us! Name names, call people out in public! Be that person! Tag them in ALL of our posts or shares. INSIST they show us the special magic they do on the decks, their eclectic tune selections or their insane scratching skills. We want it ALL! I KNOW there are people all over the US who haven’t had their moment to shine under our lights yet, so send them over. This goes for producers too! If they want new ears exposed to the sickness they’ve been cooking up in the labs, we’ll be their carrier agent. This is a very important mission and earns you 4 extra punches on your Junglist Card, so if you’ve been looking for ways to improve your cred, HERE IT IIISSS!!!
This week’s hero is none other than Rintin. This hardworking dude not only holds it down in the adult/parent world, but he’s also remodeling his basement into a power-packed rave cave! And would ya look at that, even got us that mix After trompsing all through the woods this afternoon, RinTin’s mix gave me the exact late night pick me up jolt I needed to get done with some adult things of my own. Starts out kinda mean (how we like it) and rugged but like a true gentleman, relents and rewards us with some silky liquid. Before it’s all over he’s brings it back around with some funky, deep rollers and steppier bits. That my friends is what you called a well rounded set! Now that you’re properly inspired - have some friends in mind who make sounds like this? Have they recently discovered half-time and spent a bunch of money on tunes they haven’t played out yet? GO! GO TO THEM AND SPREAD THE GOSPEL OF THE NAPCAST! Do some begging! Do it for the CULTURE <3
