Dub Pistols come to DT Radio & Launch DNB Night with 12 Hours of Music
We are excited to announce that today we launch our Brand NEW DNB Night on Data Transmission Radio! On the last Friday of the month, we will bring a huge rave-up to the airwaves! It all kicks off at 6 pm with 12 hours of Jungle Drum & Bass music.
To lead the charge, we are over the moon to bring a BIG Exclusive to DT Radio as each month we welcome the legendary Dub Pistols with their brand new show ‘Into the Jungle’! This month they’re joined by special guests Deekline and Isaac Maya!
Over an 18-year career, the Dub Pistols have worked with heroes like The Specials, Busta Rhymes, Horace Andy, Madness and Gregory Isaacs. Sometimes you have to go through the mill to realise why you were put on this Earth. So it is with the Dub Pistols, the reggae-breaks-jungle mashup, the gangster-swaggering festival stalwarts whose rollercoaster story reads like a rock’n’roll cautionary tale on a grand scale.
When big beat ruled the clubs the Pistols were snapped up for $1.5m by legendary Interscope magnate Jimmy Iovine and anointed Geffen Records’ priority act for America. But Geffen put their album out the week that 9/11 happened, so the Dub Pistols ended up broke and label-less instead of US superstars. This is how it happens. They get knocked down — but they get back up.
Next up after dub pistols, superstar residents FuZion and Evolve from Hierarchy Audio bring their monthly two hour Drum & Bass show, with vibes ranging from the light to the dark, from the old to the new and far beyond. Hierarchy Audio is a record label with a strong focus on Drum & Bass. With the aggressive, menacing and dark bass lines, captivating atmospherics and high impact drums being the order of the day… well, you can guess the rest.
The whole evening kicks off at 6pm with Data Transmissions first lady of drum and bass, Mel. She has gone from strength to strength Djing alongside the likes of Chase & Status, Wilkinson and Camo & Krooked to name a few. She has also become a staple in RAM Records live stream sets with her high energy 3 deck mixing. It’s easy to see why she is becoming one of the genre’s rising stars. Over lockdown, Mel has been taking the time to perfect her productions, which lead her to be in the top 5 for the EQ50 mentorship this year.
At 11pm, we have shows from T0.DD. Hailing from West London, T0.DD is a DJ based in the UK. He’s played in venues such as Fire and Lightbox and across Royal Holloway SU. DNB, Jungle. Then taking us through the night we have mixes from Natty Lou, Katalyst, S9, Siren, MAE917 and a big mix from Gully B!
