BC⚡︎➒ THE UNITED STATE OF DNB 2 YEAR RETROSPECTIVE MIX 🏆 2018 DNB UNITED CELEBRATES ITS 2 YEAR ☆ AN
Well, here we are! Year number TWO for DNBUNITED.COM and the United State of Drum and Bass podcast…a dream come true for founder and CEO Jason Bakes, a/k/a BC#9. In the last year, both the website and the podcast have continued to reach tens of thousands of DNB fans and producers alike, through our home websiite DNBUNITED.COM as well as industry partners like Tune In Radio, Soundcloud, Beatport, SpliceSounds.com Upsound.com , and NativeInstrumentssounds.com . 2018 promises to be a blockbuster year, with plans already in the works to not only continue our relationships with some of the most impressive sources for producing and sharing DNB and all of its diverse sub-genres, but forging new and more interactive packages and experiences for our listeners as well as our fellow DNB producers. BC#9 has an exciting collaboration in the works with Upsound, which is an incredible resource for sharing knowledge and for learning all aspects of music composition and production, but also mixing, mastering and many more aspects of creativity and innovation in the form of one-on-one lessons and tutorials. BC#9 also has plans in the works to begin selling his own producer packs, a series of DNB bass producer packs designed for creating DNB exclusively. These producer packs will carry the brand of DNB United and will include presets specific for creating DNB. DNB is the most sophisticated of all electronic music genres with its obscure sounds. Learning about synthesis and how to use LFO’s to get that sick bass sound to ultimately create your own exclusive patches is every producers quest using Serum and the entire line of Native Instrument plugins, such as Massive, Fm8, Absynth and more, this technology opens up yet another avenue for creativity and integrating talented people with the tools that they need to continue to create DNB in all of its spectacular range and sub genres long into the future.
The mission statement of DNBUNITED.COM has always been, and always will be, a destination where like minded industry pros can gather to celebrate and share the evolving sound and culture of the DNB & Jungle movement, not for money or personal gain, but simply for the love of the music. All of the work and passion that goes into the website and podcasts is done on a volunteer basis, with artists and enthusiastic fans donating their time and talent to us. Look back, and you will see phenomenal interviews with acts like Maduk, who was out first ever featured artist, as well as guest mixes by acts such as Deadcode, Loko, Jaguar Skills, Tea and Shugah, Dieselboy , BC#9 and more to come. These guest mix you can access through Soundcloud, Mixcloud, Tunein Radio and of corse DNBUNITED.COM .Here is the very first podcast we launched featuring Maduk who we interviewed for our first artist spotlight and the release of his new album at the time.
Looking forward, there is more where that came from, as we continue to thrive in our relationships with leading DNB labels like Hospital and Med School Records, Metalheadz, Methlab Recordings, Viper Records, Program, 1985, Critical, Ram, Invisible, Vision, Audio danger, Nighthawk45UK, Otherside , Bad taste, Blackout, UKF, Get Hype, Let It Roll, Full Cycle, Spearhead, Drum and bass arena, Technique, Terminal, Audio Danger (Bristol) Jungle Cakes and more. We couldn’t do what we do without the amazing people at these labels, and we certainly couldn’t do what we do here without our own killer staff. From the beginning we have had our Chief Audio Engineer Adam Vinsant, who among many other things always masters our podcasts with his incredible skills. Thanks to you, Adam, and we look forward to many more years of partnership with you. Also, a big thanks to our West coast representative, and a DNB artist in her own right, MC Jhussl in Los Angeles. Thanks to you, Jhussl, for always spreading the word of DNBUNITED.COM as you rock the Los Angelous.
DJ REA, creator and host of The Late Night Show on CITR.CA , rocking out an amazing seven hour drum and bass broadcast in British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada has been our partner from the get-go as well, not only remaining the most impressive show of DNB music to be found on earth, but for always participating in, and rebroadcasting The United State of Drum and Bass on CITR FM in BC. DJ Rea, you are a pure fan and your dedication to the genre and to our mission of uniting DNB artists and fans around the world is absolutely second to none, so big thanks to you. As Editor In Chief of this venture, I am humbled by the founder of this whole enterprise, Jason Bakes, a/k/a/ BC#9. I have known this man for over thirty years, and have personally watched him turn his impressive organic music career into a career as an electronic music FORCE OF NATURE, that shows his incredible diversity and innate talent, as well as his relentless pursuit of unity between all artists in the spirit of the music he loves so much. He often says, “Drum and Bass saved my life”, and if you read through his blog posts through the years, and listen to his podcasts, you will hear all about the truth of that statement. His idea to start DNBUNITED.COM was born of a search that he was finding no results for, and that was a place where all fans and producers of DNB could come together, talk about the music, bring it to light and eventually literally collaborate with the whole scene in order to push DNB up and out of the dark warehouses of its early days, into the proper open channels and larger and larger audience that it is currently enjoying. I think it is safe to say that he has definitely done his part, and then some, to further this cause. So, as we celebrate the anniversary of the launch of this venture, let’s all reach out and high five BC#9, because his ceaseless passion and dedication have been at the heart and soul of DNBUNITED.COM and The United State of Drum and Bass, the podcast that soars out over the worldwide web into the ears and hearts of thousands and thousands of new DNB fans, as well as to those who have loved it from the start.Nothing makes Jason feel better than when his phone lights up over a hundred times a day when a new visitor to DNB◉UNITED.COM logs on the site for the first time from a country or city that he can barley pronounce. When Jason pointed this out to me that is the smile I see him display and why he is grinning from ear to ear he simply says that two years ago there was a few places on the global map that DNB was know to be popular and accessible-now its confirms what Jason always knew and that is if DNB from all the labels could be found on one site they would come. Jason has always believed with a passion that given the opportunity if DNB was promoted like EDM and pop music people in regions all over the world would choose DNB. These kids just haven’t be given that opportunity and exposer like other pop music artists and the labels that market them. The tide has turned. DNB United records over a 1000k new visits a month and a large part of that list subscribes and returns for more. So, stick with us, loyal readers and listeners, as BC#9 puts the pedal to the metal, keeps bringing us all together, and takes the whole enterprise to the next level for year number three and beyond. Best, always, Xtene Sixtene, Editor in Chief, DNBUNITED.COM

It is with great pride that I sit down to write something about the first two years of DNB UNITED and THE UNITED STATE OF DRUM AND BASS. The idea for this musical and social experiment came to Jason as the result of many, many experiences as a professional musician and producer. As both he and I have mentioned occasionally, I grew up in the music business, my father being a radio professional, both as a program director and DJ in the industry since well before I was around. He also DJ'd in clubs in the height of the 1970s American disco scene. So, I spent much of my youth either in a broadcast studio, first sitting on the floor under the carts, out of his way, and eventually being what I guess was essentially his assistant producer, pulling his carts, reading the log, stacking his commercials in with the songs, re-racking them at the end of each hour, or standing behind his turntables with him when he was Doing live somewhere, handing him his albums, and eventually learning to cue them up myself, and fade into the next track. Most importantly, though, I watched him work, running the board like a magician, never missing a beat on the intro or outro of a song, somehow always knowing when to stop talking, when to start the next track. I am now, and always have been, in love with music, and the art of DJ’ing; that alchemy of producing a continuous, unending flow of music for other people to enjoy is sheer brilliance to me. The founder and CEO of DNB UNITED, DJ BC#9, is one of those sorcerers, not only in producing some of the most beautiful, driving, interesting and truly original music out there, but also in his ability to hear the music of others, to appreciate and understand it, and to knit it together into musical garments that you never want to take off! So, when he decided to create a website and community of drum and bass artists in order not just to share it with others, and with one another as musicians, but to present and package it in a way that would increase the listership of the entire genre, I was really excited to see what he would come up with…and this website and it’s signature podcast are certainly not a disappointment! Jason has an ear for music that a person can only be born with…this kind of musical intuition cannot be taught or learned. When he goes through all the submissions from artists and labels, and picks which ones to review, to share them, and to encourage the reader and listener to not just listen, but to understand the music, it is nothing less than magical. Also, our podcast, THE UNITED STATE OF DRUM AND BASS…well, if you are’t listening, you are missing out. This is not just a group of songs or a mere playlist..this is an expertly crafted audio experience, each beat chosen carefulluy, each note understanding the other and creating an experience that no music fan wouldn’t completely be lost in…between this ethereal talent and the mastering of our chief audio engineer Adam, the UNITED STATE OF DRUM AND BASS should really be on your must-listen to list any time we are lucky enough for the team to put one together and share it, trust me! It will take you on a musical journey like no other. Finally, I want to say, on the occasion of our first anniversary, that the crew of people that we are fortunate enough to have attracted into this world of DNB…well, it is truly an honor to edit the erudite, intelligent and expressive pieces that they produce for us, and for the readers...their words are inspired and inspiring. There are not many ventures, websites or podcasts, in any musical genre, where the spirit of the music, of collaboration and cooperation, of truly sharing and uplifting the music that we all love, is so highly respected as it is at DNB UNITED. Jason carefully picked the name to describe his ultimate Utopia…a virtual and physical world where all of us are united under the flags of music, no matter where we come from, and no matter where we want to go. All are welcome at DNB UNITED, and in that unity, I love watching the art, culture and music that forms the universe of Drum and Bass, come together and soar. Congratulations to Jason, a/k/a DJ BC#9, Tim, Adam, Eric, and Jaymee, a/k/a MC JHUSSL, and thank you to the artists and labels that share their gift with us every day, so that we can continue to bring this and more to you in the coming years. Only music can save us! XTENE 16 Editor/ Chief /Contributor / DNB◉UNITED RECORDS / DNB◉UNITED.COM

DNB◉UNITED.COM is a group of industry professionals who donate their time and skills to celebrate the art, culture and evolving sound of DNB + Jungle.To celebrate our one year anniversary I pulled out my decks and produced a mix. I have been submerged in the incredible amount of wicked Neruofunk DNB that has been releases in just 2016 alone. Eatbrain has been killing it all year! I also went out to celebrate my birthday to the Lizard lounge of Dallas Texas. One of my hometown heroes Dieselboy was headlining and my fiancé Xtene got me backstage to reunited us since it has been over 20 years since we last saw each other in person.. His latest two hour Destroyer mix 2 is off the chain with 138 tracks to break the floor for sure.Ok so a lot of influence's running through my brain and screaming to get out. So I fired up my decks and put together some of my favorite tracks of 2016-2017. DNB◉UNITED.COM has been growing at such a fast pace I couldn't be happier.We also just opened our LA California office with MC Jhussi representing DNB◉UNITED RECORDS on the West coast.
