Emerging out of the UK’s iconic Jungle scene in the 1990s, Drum & Bass has undoubtedly been one of the country’s finest exports over the last 30 years. In that time, the boundaries of sonic production have been pushed and explored by producers, DJs and promoters not just in the UK, but in all corners of the globe – making Drum & Bass truly a worldwide community.
The Blast have launched a petition calling upon Ministers of Culture around the world to officially declare the date of April 17th (17.4) as Drum & Bass Day. With support from Drum & Bass soldiers across the globe joining in on the movement, we hope Drum & Bass gets the official recognition it deserves with its very own date. So for every fan of Liquid, Rollers, Neurofunk, Jump Up, Tech, Dancefloor, Breaks, Jungle, Half-time or any other flavour, we need to unite to cement this day as official and to celebrate an influential, unmistakable and iconic genre in dance music.
On the day and in the lead up to the 17th April, we will be celebrating with a dedicated schedule of activities featuring some very special guests TBC. The community can keep track and make their voices heard by tagging #DrumAndBassDay on social media, telling us where and how they’re celebrating and keeping an eye out on our social media pages @drumandbassday.
With one of the most loyal and dedicated followings in the underground music scene, the love for Drum & Bass stretches far and wide. Often neglected by the mainstream, the scene has continued to thrive thanks to this incredible support from the DNB family and we hope that we can firmly stamp Drum & Bass Day on the calendar and spread a little love in these tough times.
