BL&G – I Kissed A Girl (zshare)
Great hour long mix for MethodsNYC that crosses dubstep, electro, bhangra and drum and bass bounties. Great mix and a great label.
Some genius upon genius took some footage of southern church dancing and matched it up to a Andy C and MC GQ live set. Perhaps the best thing I have every seen on youtube. SOLID GOLD
(Via Trash Menagerie.)
Flyer says its all. Looks like Ed Rush, Optical, Dara and Empress will be touching down at Studio B, Friday August 1. The dubstep room will hold its own as well with Dave Q and Dhruva from Sub Swara.
Its been at least 6 years since I saw Ed Rush. This is gonna be awesome, I hope Studio B brings some extra Bass bin!! BOH BOH BOH!
$10 in advance. Tickets at ticket web.
NYC DnB heavyweight DJ ODI busts out another killer mix. This man has been playing out in the mean streets of NYC for nearly 2 decades now. If you ever wanted to hear how proper drum and bass is played look no further than this mix.

Listening through Odi’s amazing Legacy NYC mix has had me loving a number of tracking in the mix. One track “Flatliner” has caught my attention and the attention of Mel over at Apt 11. I actually didn’t know the track and had to ask the grandmaster Odi himself; who let me know that it is infact TC. Check it out below. Awesome awesome vocals.
TC – Flatliner
Unfortunately I missed last months amazing Legacy party thrown by the NYC Jungle crew. From what I gathered from the live mixes, it was a fucking amazing time. Check out these mixes from the original Odi himself, and Profile.
Profile live at Legacy
So by now you know they can throw it down. Check out their next event with Jumping Jack Frost on August 23rd by checking the board.
Tricia Romano, the Fly Life writer for the Village Voice is hanging up her hat on her job as staff writer for NYC nightlife. She has some interesting things to say about the DnB scene. She like me, grew up in the DNB scene, saw its brief rise, and then its collapse. I will always still love the music.
If you grew up with DnB or have read Fly Life check this out.
