Bloom! Sept 21st @ The Shakespeare


That time of the month is almost upon us again to go and get out regular dose of beats down at bloom. This month is turning out to be somewhat of a Jungle fest with Theory and XTC gracing the decks. So get your dancing shoes on and make the most of what we have left of this miserable summer before its too damn cold to party in the beer garden!




Bloom! – Feb 17th

I thought I’d drop a little plug for my favourite local place to get yourself some proper underground beats.


Bloom is up next friday (17th February) with a roster of awsome local talent itching to make you move!

B2B residents all night, no big names, but we retain the massive music! Expect a good dose of ragga & dub followed up with the best Liquid/Tech/Neuro/Minimal/Jungle that drum & bass has to offer. All for FREE!

Its gonna be a banger, and it even looks like the weathers gonna be good (comparitively). So check in over at the facebook event and we’ll see you on the night!

I cant wait!

Friday 20th January – The Shakespeare, Saddler Gate, Derby

Bloom is back on after a little hiaetus in December.

Great lineup of local, and not so local heads. As ever, this will be wicked vibes from the undergound.

I love bloom, its getting a nice little reputation for itself too. Long may it prosper!


  Friday 27th January – Saddlers, Saddler Gate, Derby

You like that crazy dubstep all the kids are raving on about? Yeah, me too. Its a good shout then to get yourself out for derbys biggest dubstep night!

Featuring many upcoming talents and some established local DJ’s you cant go wrong if this is your bag.


Saturday 28th Jan – Spanky Van Dikes, 17 Goldsmith Street, Nottingham

I just spotted this naughty little gig as I was writing this article. Its been a while since Ive partied to some dnb at spankys.

I have fond memories of CULT when it used to be there, fucking sick place. Love the vibes, epic sound system, and with a lineup like this for freebies!

No question, im there.



Saturday 4th February – The Shakespere, Saddler gate, Derby

These guys have been busy over the past few months building up another solid night at the shakespere.

Mainly dubstep-centric you can expect a lot of deep, deep vibes from this place, shakespere is as always, a wicked venue for a party.




Friday 10th February – The Sunlounge, 15A Wardwick, Derby

Ahh the mighty Deckadance, THE staple underground derby dnb night since forever.

Whilst Mr Pablo is off galavanting in foreign lands for a few months, the reigns have fallen to Phil Hustle of the exceptional Hustle Audio.

I cant stress enough how wicked this night is gonna be; Cursa, Pessimist, Mr Hustle himself, Ed:it, Expect & Snaps.

I dont think I need to say any more than that.  Be there!
