Story time kidos, in the early 2000's I was a partner in crime for Annihilation Records in Athens Ohio. Buy this I mean I did graphics, hauled gear, threw parties, bought records and helped with inventory with DJ Redshift / Ian. Fresh back from a year in Europe collecting tunes I found myself chasing this sound. It was "hardcore jungle" or "raggacore" or whatever other names it was called it was a west coast sound (I say west coast because of N20 records, I later learned this was not fully correct). It was drum technical and the bass-lines would often take a back seat, the energy of the community felt like old school hip hop. What does this have to with anything?

This is a love letter to those days. Redshift where ever you are (Northern California?) this is a hat tip to you. Fire it up!

Big ups to Labelless Records, Asbo Records, Vinyl Syndicate Recordings, X-13 Recordings, Planet Mu, Rewind Records, Dub Fi Dub, and finally big ups to Top Ranking Records.

FTA EVENT: Vinyl Purist Radio with The Librarian and Drip [Live Stream Video]


The other night I got the opportunity to get on to Vinyl Purist Radio a live stream YouTube channel for vinyl heads. I can't speak highly enough about how much fun it was to play for them. Hart and Teresa totally treated me like family, especially as I badgered Hart with questions about his set up, his vinyl collection and his DJ history. Expect to see more from Hart Drip on From The Annex... hint hint. HA!


Expect to see some dancing, mixing and goofy antic from me, while Drip is nothing but surgical with his mixing performance beside the occasional grin from my hollering as he drops tracks that I wish I had played or did not know I owned (always check the b side folks).


Here is the write up on the two of us for this live stream event.


[[ [ [ THE LIBRARIAN ] ] ]]

The Librarian is the DJ of Fromtheannex FM, a Jungle/Drum & Bass show local to Washington, DC which airs every Thursday night from 10-11pm on WERA 96.7 FM. A mid-west original who migrated to the DC beltway 15 years ago in the midst of the great dnb recession, he's been a part of aiding rebirth of the scene in and around the beltway since he joined the community and credits 2Tuff, 3D Productions, SubDistrick, Fun & Bass, Transit (Give Productions) and all other crews for continuing to push the ball forward. Shoutouts to Elm Imprint, Tribalistix Sound, ADstone and The StoneLioness.





[[ [ [ DRIP ] ] ]]

Half the brains and all the talent behind Vinyl Purist Radio, Hart Drip has been actively DJing for 20 years. His love for vinyl is well known locally, and his experience on the production side has led him to become both passionate and persistent about sound quality. Drip's sets span the spectrum of dnb and jungle, offering a variety of sounds and bass lines, but from time to time, you can also catch him drop some soulful, groovy house music under his alter ego, Hartless.
