An individual who is undoubtedly synonymous with the birth, growth and rise of UK Dance music particularly Drum N Bass is DJ Grooverider and two words synonymous to him are Pioneer and Icon. Having been integrally involved within the UK underground scene for well over 25 years he has participated in and supervised its evolution to it now being an highly eclectic club culture regarded and revered globally for being one of the most dynamic and developed.

Despite being for the most part associated with Drum N bass and regarded by both avid listeners and his fellow artist and peers as being the Godfather of this genre, he himself is quick to publicise his own musical journey charting his other creative influences and exploits prior to the birth of Drum and Bass. I’ve listened to black music all my life. Reggae, Hip Hop, R&B, Funk, Disco the whole thing. I started cruising to house then Hardcore. Now its drum n bass but house is what I know inside out.

That’s what I grew up with, my first love. I know everything about it. Drum n bass is something we formulated out of house. Its this cultured journey which qualifies him for almost unrivalled praise and recognition as clearly his efforts and his contributions have been critical in helping to establish and nurture UK Urban music as we know it today, which is flourishing as one of the most lucrative mainstream genres. As a DJ his credentials are phenomenal and testament to this is the fact that despite the underground club scene having unbelievably calmed since the memorable and tumultuous years of the 80 and 90s rave era, Grooverider is of a select few DJs who continues to play out at numerous events many of which are worldwide.

This acclaim and notoriety is a far cry from the so called early days and his time on a sound systems and pirate radio station Ill always be a DJ first. I used to DJ on a sound system years ago then I got on to a radio station It was called Phase 1 I was playing acid house every Sunday morning, like, 8 ’til 10 in the morning sometimes we would start 3 am and go on ’til the next day The guy who owned the station opened a club after-hours and booked me and Fabio, cause we were both on the station This association with Fabio also considered by many as a forefather to the scene, proved not to be a flash in the pan and the two of them remain close friends, sidekicks and business partners and presently cohost the weekly radio 1 Drum n Bass show. Among Grooverider lasting legacy will be not that he simply helped establish the genre but also he helped it grow and expand it by exporting this energetic and progressive music to those who traditionally would not have listened to it.

“It’s not just about me and Fabio, its a whole platform for drum n bass. It’s about what’s happening in drum n bass, taking it on the road and showing people who dont necessarily go to drum n bass parties that this is what we do.”

This aim is clearly something that motivates him and it is clear that his long journey to where he is today had many challenges and struggles but with tenacity and resilience he started also to gain the respect of larger legitimate mainstream radio stations who could no longer ignore the genre or Grooverider eventually he was given a set on Kiss Fm We were on Kiss beforeand when Radio 1 called us in we ran at it.

“We didn’t know what it was going to be like… but we had to take the chance Kiss was changing into a commercial station and Radio 1 was going the other way. I think it was the right time to jump ship. The underground side of Radio 1 was still developing and we were able to add to it. Im now in my fourth year on Radio 1. It’s been going really well. Radio 1 are happy and weve moved our time forward an hour.”

In closing Grooverider has had a profound influence on UK music in general and in several different capacities as he has successfully assumed the both mantles of being a pioneering DJ and Producer. He is also the recipient of countless underground and global dance awards but perhaps his most reputed achievement was the MOBO best DJ award he won in 2002. As long as he continues to play at massive events, produce great tunes and pursue his Radio 1 shows it is likely that he will receive many more awards yet and each one will be deserved.

K-Klass are responsible for some of the biggest dance tracks ever made. For over quarter of a century they have rocked dance floors and live gigs without fail, racking up no fewer than 5 UK top 40 hits and a GRAMMY Nomination along the way. That combined with a remix Hit List to die for, including Janet Jackson, Whitney Houston, Lisa Stansfield, New Order, Bobby Brown, Rihanna and many, many more all adding up to millions of sales/Internet views world wide.

Meeting in 1988, in the Legendary Manchester club, the Hacienda, K-Klass soon teamed up with vocalist Bobbi Depasois (who they work with to this day). Hits such as “Rhythm is a Mystery” and “Let Me Show You” soon followed. They cut their teeth playing live at huge raves as well as iconic clubs such as The Hacienda, Cream, Ministry of Sound and many others. Offers of remix and production work followed the hit records. In 1995 K-Klass won the International Dance Awards Remixer Of The Year Award, then followed that in 2002 with a GRAMMY Nomination.

Transit with Mungos Hifi

Mungos-Feb16

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We welcome Mungos HiFi Soundsystem and Stalawa Sound back to Aberdeen!!

Mungo’s HiFi Soundsystem
Stalawa Sound
Tom Spirals

Tickets:
Super Earlybird: SOLD OUT
Earlybird: SOLD OUT
Standard: £12
On The Door: £15

Ticket links:

Skiddle: http://bit.ly/21SEpth
RA: http://bit.ly/1Q6FGJv

This is a limited capacity event so advanced tickets are highly advised!

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Mungo’s Hi Fi first set sail at the turn of the millennium – a time when soundsystem culture was at low tide in the Clyde estuary. They had to dig deep into reggae dancehall heritage to distill its essence, avoiding mimicry like the plague and always keeping it real. The example of soundsystem pioneers showed the way – using the latest technology to build on the past, conscious of the current climate.

The digital age has brought on a storm of musical offerings making it hard for music lovers to navigate a safe course. Mungo’s Hi Fi shine a light in the darkness.

As the good ship Mungo grew, so did the crew. Seven now make up the permanent company, each with their own responsibilities for producing and releasing the music, running the label, shop, playing live shows and putting on promotions. Together with a hard working crew of MCs, box lifters and visual artists they work as a team, relying on all their strengths and not just strong personalities that can cause a sound to run aground. They have been on adventures all over the globe, sometimes travelling alone, sometimes with the whole crew.

At sea you learn self reliance, how to keep a positive attitude and how to have fun. They maintain a suspicion of cultural pirates and their abuse of power, which is why they choose to retain control over how they make and present their music, favouring passion over presentation.

When counter currents start to challenge the mainstream they will always meet opposition. As the tide begins to swell they are ready to batten down the hatches and provide a beating heart for those who battle injustice with the power of love and the human spirit. In order to stop complaining and start competing they have had to face their own fears and private opposition, get organised and fight back. In this serious time war is not the answer as only love can conquer.

Breaking onto the scene together with D-Bridge as Future Forces back in 1995, Jason Maldini was the first artist to release a single on the then brand new Renegade Hardware label. Introduced by a mutual friend, D-Bridge and Maldini released a variety of cuts on Trouble On Vinyl and further finessed their sound into a harder, more aggressive style.

Through his connection with Renegade Hardware, Maldini was introduced to Fresh, who was also producing music at the time; a chance encounter and Fresh’s request for Maldini to mix one of his tunes led to a collaboration, “The Code,” which went to the coveted No.1 spot on BBC Radio 1’s drum and bass chart. The inclusion of Vegas completed the four’s production alliance, officially known as Bad Company UK, and their 1998 release of the seminal drum and bass anthem “The Nine,” with which they had an unprecedented success, re-wrote the script for what was becoming an increasingly minimalist genre. The footprint of “The Nine” has been so strong that more recently, it was voted as the number 1 drum and bass release of all time. At the height of Bad Company UK’s success, Maldini and Vegas had not only racked up an impressive back catalogue on their own label BC Recordings, but also on some of the biggest labels in drum and bass including Prototype, Virus, DSCI4, Ram, React and Metalheadz. Their albums “Inside the Machine” and “Book of the Bad” were released to global critical acclaim, winning them mainstream recognition in The Face, NME, DJ Magazine, Muzik, Dazed & Confused, and Mixmag.

Their deft, technological savvy mixed with slick dancefloor manoeuvres and dirty bass production dominated the drum and bass musical landscape; what with the hard, digital edge of “Inside The Machine” – with dancefloor staples such as ‘Silicon Dawn’, ‘Oxygen (The Drilla Killa)’, ‘Sentient’ and ‘Nitrous (Feat. Trace)’‚ on board – through to its even-more-lethal follow-up in the form of ‘Digital Nation’ (cue anthems; ‘Breathe’, ‘Night-Train’, ‘Navajo’ and the ever-infamous ‘Son of Nitrous’)

We are pleased to welcome them back to Aberdeen for the 1st time since 2004 on our 7th birthday at Kef.
