A couple of weeks back I launched a brand new drum & bass website LoveThatBass.com
It’s a project I’ve been thinking about for several years. Now, finally with the extra free time on my hands that lockdown has enforced upon me, LoveThatBass is a reality.
The site is a new space for drum and bass, focusing on news, interviews, production tips & more. We have a Spotify D&B playlist that is regularly updated. Also watch out for our merchandise range coming soon.
To date the amount of visitors LoveThatBass is getting each day is way beyond what I expected… Hopefully I can keep up the momentum. I have lots planned!!
Go check out the site right now. We have articles featuring Harry Shotta, Nu Elements, Voltage, Stranjah, Nookie, Chase & Status, Blame, Dope Ammo, DJ Hybrid & more!!!
The 40th release from the Direct Recordings camp is a collaboration between AKAS & DJ Ollie, two names entrenched in the drum & bass scene and who’s careers have followed a similar trajectory throughout the years, although not necessarily the same path.
Both artists have been friends for near on 2 decades, but surprisingly, until now, they’ve never worked on a track together until now…
Fingers crossed this is the first of many from this duo as they obviously have chemistry in the studio!!
AKAS may be a new name to a lot of people, but to those in the know, way back when, he was the guy that gave many a household D&B name their early releases on his Talkin’ Beatz imprint. Under various artist alias’ he’s recorded music for Viper, Technique, Monstacat, Frequency, C.I.A, Dynamic Audio, and had tracks on Hospital, UKF & Innovation compilation albums. Recently he’s collaborated on as yet unreleased projects with DJ Limited & Danny Byrd. AKAS may be his new pseudonym, but he definitely has a proven track record.
DJ Ollie’s work in the scene is extensive, with a drum and bass history that includes promoting internationally renowned events, a DJ career that stretches back to the mid 90’s, radio presenting, running record labels, putting together compilation album projects, even working behind the counter of a pioneering D&B record shop… Which is where he first crossed paths with AKAS!
