Prepare for a history lesson from jungle & drum’n’bass’s most important players and get to know some of the best emerging talent breaking right now as Planet V, Philly Blunt Records and Soulvent land at FABRICLIVE.
Bryan Gee’s V Recordings is one of the most respected drum & bass labels on the planet. Their output has created some of the most iconic - and charging - records in DNB history. In fact, they’re an important part of our history too - hosting a room at the first FABRICLIVE DNB event back when we first opened our doors in 1999. For their Room One takeover in 2019, they have put together a staggering collection of the sound’s pioneers with Randall, Ed Rush & Optical, Adam F all touching down. The label have maintained their edge picking out new talent with some of their newer signings also set to be part of the night with Alibi & Command Strange, Paul T & Edward Oberon, Benny L and Ruffstuff also set to feature.
A label with close ties to V and one that also holds a high place in the heritage of drum n bass’ story in the UK - Philly Blunt Records takes charge of the Pioneer Pro Audio system in Room Two. With a line-up starred with the originating forces of rave culture, Jumpin Jack Frost, Serum, Bladerunner, Ray Keith, Saxxon, Think Tonk and Uncle Dugs will see that this room will bear witness to a fearsome blend of jungle, bass and bashment. Get ready for an all round masterclass in working a sound system.
Taking over in Room Three is a label who have been marking out their own place in the scene with an ear for the latest in liquid forms of 170BPM sonics - Soulvent Records will be celebrating their 5th birthday tonight. They are set to show us what the next generation of producers bring on the decks with a series of sets from their roster of emerging talent inviting Pola & Bryson, In:Most, Data 3, Dilemma and Jolliffe to perform.
