Renegade Riddims Local: DAIN


DAIN (Dain Hart) is a Drum & Bass artist born and raised in Milton Keynes. When he was growing up he was surrounded by family members that listened to Drum & Bass and Jungle which ignited his passion for the genres. This led to him attending raves and finding a deeper love, and so in 2016 DAIN purchased his first set of decks and started to learn how to mix.

4 years later during lockdown, DAIN decided to pursue his dream of playing up on a stage and started to grow his socials. In January 2022 he reached that dream and played his first show at Unit Nine in MK for future sounds of Drum & Bass, one month later he was signed to On The Decks.

DAIN has supported the likes of Camo & Krooked, Blackley, Vibe Chemistry and Alchemist, and will be supporting Crossy, Gray, Gaw, Bish, Jappa, Zoro, Frenetic, Exile and the Born on Road Crew on August 26th for OTD Presents Jungle Mayhem ft Born On Road! As well as mixing DAIN also produces and is looking to dig deeper into the production side this year.

Today DAIN joins the local edition of our Renegade Riddims series. Once a month we are focussing on local talent in our area and this follows on from Hardisty who was the first last year and Milkman and HameZ who delivered mixes the past 2 months. The mix contains music from the likes of Dominator & Logan D, Culture Shock,Unglued, Shy FX, Danny Byrd, Myth, Gouki, Frankee, Ed Rush & Optical, Levela and loads more!
