Big up my Monday Crew!! Welcome to the NAPCast where the drums and basses always fills the empty spaces! Speaking of empty spaces... did you hear about Noisia? The DnB super trio announced earlier this month the group will be calling it quits. "Noisia is a game we've completed," claims the crew. Creative differences have caused the group to move in different directions and the desire to preserve the sound of Noisia, rather than risk destroying it, thus causing the separation. Noisia will continue to tour and release unfinished business throughout 2020, but after that... nada. Bummer. All the members will pursue separate musical interests moving forward. Noisia will forever be remembered as a crucial innovator and sculptor of the modern Drum and Bass sound. I believe once you're anointed in the DnB, it forever runs in your veins.... this may be the end of a chapter, but definitely not the end of the story!
October begins tomorrow, and a week more of sleeps until School Night pops off at the Melody Inn! We've got the 2 originators of the NAPDNB tribe, Gizzmo & Hollow Point, heading up the stage for some special BDay shenanigan sets to amaze and bewilder even the hardest of Junglists hearts! We also have Pixie and myself for front room support, and Rich Lather and Wes Clay howling the house in the back. No better use for $2 exists, get out on a School Night and DONT BE TARDY!
We've got some fresh meat on this week's NAPCast, all the way from 'cross the Pond from the homie - Big Choc! Calling Birmingham, UK home, this DJ/Producer/Sound Engineer and has been grinding out the DnB love since the age of 16. He's already dropped 2 LP's, with his new EP "Return of the Choc" coming out soon. Catch him every Thursday from 7-9pm for his residency on DistinctFM.com. Big Choc put together a marvelous mix for NAPCast #275. Described as "a variation of Liquid, Classics, New Blowers," Big Choc shines through this hour mix with heavy bass, tight seams, and proper selections. All the while composing an undeniable groove to get your back loose and neck nodding on this Monday for the Masses!
