We’re not fond of posting up short clips of soon-to-be-released-tracks, but this one is so massive we HAVE TO share it! The galaxies known as Tony Anthem & Axl Ender vs Erb n Dub collided together in a massive galactic firework show, then got sucked through the black hole known as Slogun & iOh, thus creating a massively destructive audible experience known as Rise. It drops June 12, so keep tabs on @slogundnb till then!

Tankman’s remix of UltraBlack’s Joy Ride is freaking massive! The basslines sound like they’re talking to you too. Don’t try to have a conversation with it though, just keep quiet and enjoy! =) Check the free download here, and if you really like it, make sure to share some love!

Freakishly sweet 5 part documentary on the history of DnB in Seattle! Big Ups! Here’s an expert about the film, straight from the youtube channel:

This has truly been a labor of love. Countless hours spent scanning flyers, sifting the internet and sitting in front of this screen. It’s far from perfect but it’s in the same DIY vein as was the Seattle Drum and Bass explosion. Total Budget = $0…. Total profit = $0…. This is by a head for the heads. This is a collection of Seattle dnb community photos, videos and flyers. This belongs to the entire Seattle Drum and Bass community. Thank you for your contributions.

I met Gridlok in 2008 when he paid a visit KPFK’s Radiobomb in LA. I just so happened to have been there and he gave me a copy of his Autopsy album. It made me feel special. This track was… no, is! so freaking KICK-ASS that it’s been my favorite for years now. BIG UPs to Gridlok for keeping it down for years!
