THE UNITED STATE OF DNB BC⚡︎➒ TV & RADIO 2015-2017
Now available on both YouTube and Vimeo, "THE UNITED STATE OF DNB", DNB◉UNITED RECORDS monthly podcast, has grown in popularity since its inception when we launched dnbunited.com in March 2015. The podcast is hosted by founder and artist Jason Bakes, a/k/a BC⚡︎➒. The monthly volume features the advance releases received at dnbunited.com for review and promotion from DNB UNITED's affiliates Hospital, Med School, Ram, Viper, Invisible, Terminal, Methlab, Bad Taste, Otherside, Metalheadz Records...and the list keeps on growing. When I started publishing the show on Soundcloud, Mixcloud, Tune-in, and Beatport, I didn't realize that it would be picked up and rebroadcast on radio stations like CITR 101.9 FM/citr.ca, on Vancouver's "Late Night Show", hosted by DJ Rea every week. The fact that our listening audience grew to over 10k within the first 24 hours of publishing on Soundcloud alone, led me to set up video editions on our exclusive YouTube and Vimeo channels. With the list of drum + bass sub-genres getting longer, it became clear that our social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, tumblr, Google+ and Instagram are now being designed with original, driven content that is not just a echo of our main site, but is a product all its own. This evolution of the sound in drum + bass is casting a wider net and allowing new artists to be much more creative, with an ever changing genre that is much more inclusive than exclusive now than twenty-five years ago, at its humble beginning. New software has lead to a whole range of sounds as well as to unique opportunities for digital collaboration. Now artists in the US and in the UK can send tracks back and forth with the push of a button, and co-produce tracks that allows producers in the recording game to create a release that, not long ago, if you weren't in the same room (let alone country), it wouldn't have been possible. We are just now starting to see these new opportunities blow up with platforms like Splice which is an online bank of loops and samples that producers subscribe to on a monthly basis. This service includes the ability to post a track and have other artists from all over the world to "splice" the track, in order to add their own parts to the track; and now you have a global collaboration of endless possibilities! With all that is happening, I feel that we are in a sweet spot for music today. I am excited to be in the game, while also getting the chance to help celebrate the latest releases with "THE UNITED STATE OF DNB" Let's turn the clock back, and take some time to listen to the first podcast, followed by a more recent volume, in celebration and spirit of the incredible releases that have been cataloged in these three podcasts for your enjoyment. Please repost them and share the sounds. Cheers BC⚡︎➒ .
