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:
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.
Passing on the word from a DCDNB contact:

Twenty seven weeks of DC-centric mixes! Chugging along! This week check out:
Work was busy yesterday and I did not have time after to do the post. You’d think I’d be on top of it, especially when one of my own mixes is part of the week’s batch. Anyways, on to the important stuff:
Here’s where you’ll find some drum’n’bass in the DC area over the next seven days:
There does not seem to be any drum’n’bass booked in the area this week :|
Work has been busy. My time out of work has been busy. But here is what is coming up (even if it is to shamelessly plug my own gig):
If you are coming out to Starscape early, I (Harry Ransom) will be the opening DJ on the dnb stage, going on at 2PM.
