Where have we been?

Why, right here, of course. However, the content has been lacking lately, and there are a few things we should be doing to rectify that. So here is an update to the mission of DCDNB, although it is subject to change.

Get involved with the DCDNB blog, a continuing project centered around the drum’n’bass music genre and the DC Metro area (basically within a 25-mile radius of Washington, DC). Look for the following regular posts:

  • Mondays: From here on out, Mondays are Mixtape Mondays. Makes sense, right? If you are a DC area DJ, send us your mixes. We are no longer aggregating information from the local forums and webcasts, we want the DJs to forward on their material. So if you want to see your mix from EXBC or Dirtbox, or any other webcasts we might be aware of, send us a link, a title or show name & date, a track listing and contact info (email, a website address, a Twitter account), and make sure your mix is mostly drum’n’bass and mixed well. If you’re clanging the mixes, some of the regulars who check our blog & Twitter will ask me “what’s up with new jack DJ train wrecking up & down their mix?”

  • Tuesdays - Thursdays: We are going to try some new content ideas out, maybe something interactive with those who read the blog. We might be asking for photo replies of record collections, DJ set ups, studios, hand drawn DCDNB logos, air horn impressions, 10-minute mixes with nothing but double drops, etc.

  • Fridays: This will be a combination of:
    • Five For Friday - a short form interview with the dynamic range of people that make up the local drum’n’bass scene.

    • Flashback Friday - either we, or someone we contact, will post an item or two that reflects the history of the DC drum’n’bass scene. This could be old fliers, old mixtapes or just a YouTube clip of any old tunes we feel like.

    • Feature Friday - Some other feature we might come up with.

If you want to get involved, for now the best method of contact is to email Harry Ransom at r4ns0m (at) gmail (dot) com and let him know you want to help in some way, or post a comment on one of our posts.

Also promoters, if you want DCDNB promoting your event in some capacity and you will help us out by including our logo in your promotional materials, let us know; we also have a vector version of our classic logo, which designers can incorporate in to their designs easily. As with the mixes, we are no longer scouring forums for info, we want to establish a connection with those active in producing & promoting events in Washington, DC. If you have drum’n’bass on your line-up and that party is happening in DC (or very close to the city, not down in Richmond, VA or up in Baltimore, MD), let us know.

Look for other updates as well. We will be trying out a lot of different ideas for content. And with all of that said, I am going to post about an event tomorrow in DC, and maybe a couple old drum’n’bass tunes that I was listening to earlier today.
