Event promoters Method Twenty Four (MTF) are launching a new series at the classic underground venue The Black Swan.
It may be the first in the series but within MTF's dark bass takeover is a pretty decent showcase including DLR, War, Amoss, and Grey Code.
DLR is a big sound in home territory Bristol.
Setting off on his own in 2013, James Rowbotham has made his way all over the scene with releases on Metalheadz, Dispatch, Prolix's Trendkill Records, and Break's Symmetry Recordings.
We’ve heard at Underground that the producer is soon to be releasing a new record label. Check back with us in the next week for more info on DLR’s Sofa Sounds.
Also hailing from Dispatch Records at Methodnb 01 is the duo Amoss.
From hosting their monthly ‘Cranium Session’ podcast, to playing out sets at Outlook and Nozstock festivals, we can be sure that their Friday night set will be filled with dub heavy rollers.
Check out recently released VIP of ‘Vortice’, their collab with Fre4knc.
And hold tight for Brighton-born, Bristol-based Grey Code on this night, who I had the pleasure to interview late last year.
Since then, however, a lot has happened.
From more radio appearances alongside Noisia to releasing the Traces EP on Dispatch Records, even some collaborative work with Skylark on Demand Records.
With this exponential growth, it won't be long until you will have to pay £40 to see him at Motion.
The main room line up MTF has selected for the Methodnb 01 is oozing with seriously good quality drum and bass producers.
The first iteration of this series is not to be missed.
