This week, to celebrate out 1 year anniversary of the NAPCast, we’re happy to bring you a copy of the SLAMMIN’ set by Indianapolis mainstays B.A. Barrawkus and Phsyko-lojik, or more commonly known as the Souljahz of Fortune. If you were at Mojostock 2015 this year, then you got to witness this set performed live…it not, then prepare yourselves for a journey. Cruising in and out of different basslines with ease, this duo brings the yin and yang of drum & bass in a way you may not have heard before.
I have to be honest, 13 months ago, when a group of Indianapolis junglists and myself decided to unite to promote the sound of drum & bass, I couldn’t have expected we’d be where we are today. 52 new and exclusive mixes, 11 monthly takeover events, a festival stage, 500+ likes on facebook, 10,000+ listens on soundcloud, and we’re only getting started! It is truly heart-warming and humbling to see the positive feedback we’ve received since NAP DNB’s inception. To that point, and on behalf of everyone at NAP DNB…
No one gets paid for what we do. No one benefits monetarily from our events. No one is using this movement to further themselves selfishly. We truly just love drum & bass music and we’re excited to combine our efforts to deliver the absolute best jungle experience possible…to reach out and unite junglists young and old, near and far…it doesn’t matter. If your intention is to create or spread drum & bass, then we share the same goal. If you love and support drum & bass music, then you are part of our family.
Even if you’ve only recently learned about us, it’s not too late to get caught up. Check out our vast library of drum & bass mixes over on the soundcloud, get all of our updates on the facebook page, or get it in bite-size nuggests over on our twitter. If you’re a DJ and you want to submit a mix to our weekly NAPCast series, contact us on facebook or shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you’d like to get involved, we throw a monthly takeover event at The Melody Inn, the next of which will be hosted on June 23rd when we bring down the MIGHTY Syndicate from Ft. Wayne.
If you can’t wait that long, we’re hosting our very first event at an undisclosed warehouse event in Indianapolis on June 13th. This event will not be one to miss. If you miss that underground event vibe, or maybe you can’t come out during the week for our Tuesday takeovers, or maybe you’re 19 years old and they won’t let you in the bars yet, this is the event for you, or maybe you just cannot get enough of the jungle sound, then we have your one-stop shop for all things jungle. We’re pulling the LEGENDARY DJ 3D out of retirement to come out and rock the dancefloor just for you! Supporting acts Carnie, Brandon Patr!k, Souljahz of Fortune and a jungle hero tag set between NuM3R1K and Ceebz. You can find out more, get the latest updates and RSVP over on our facebook event page.
Again, I have to show my gratitude to the junglists of Indianapolis and the surrounding regional areas for all being so kind and accepting of what we’re trying to do. Lots of love to each and every one of you for supporting what we believe is the music that fuels our fire and lifts our spirits. Drum & Bass music is not the most popular music available, but for those who appreciate it, we are truly united together in its wake. From myself, Gizzmo, Geek, Antik One, NuM3R1K, Sea Monkey, Roots Iric, Sarah Anne, Courtney (& the rest of the jungle birds) and everyone else who has contributed their time, effort, and/or money into this movement we thank you from the very bottom of our hearts and we hope that you will stay tuned for the next year of NAP DNB! We’ve got much more in store, so keep it locked in the groove!
