FTA MUSIC: The Librarian presents Cheap Vinyl Challenge 2021

 The Librarian's set from the international DJ competition called Cheap Vinyl Challenge.

In the spirit of Top Gear, we were tasked with creating a set of 15 records for under $40.90 / £30.

Thus I set out to create the very cheapest Jazzy Jungle vibes, all vinyl from the annex archive.

... did I win? No, but a very nice set was created. 2nd place ain't bad.

Big ups to Catch 22 for bringing home the gold.

Also a huge shout out to all the other players. DJ B-Sides, BeersAndBeatsPDX, Ghaleon everyone brought their A-game to the party.

Of course, I would be doing their whole event a disservice by not toasting the host Man Like Deeps. Respect

Big ups to the chatroom massive, mad love to the DC DnB community, and Respect to Junglist World Wide.

02) Me Myself + I - JB & DJ Spice Featuring Dark Angel

Guddah TAKEOVER of From the Annex #159 #jungle #dnb #drumandbass

When you get knocked down by the world it's great to know that friends are there to pick you up, dust you off and help carry the load. Long story short I had a family emergency that caused me to be absent. Guddah knowing the back story stepped into takeover the show for the night. Total boss, what made it legendary was he is located over in the UK! It's like 2am when he kicked off my show pulling an all-nighter then rolling to work. Mind Blown.

FTA Spotlight: [DC Session] Harry Ransom

Here in DC in the 2000s, there was a good chance if you went to a DnB show you would see Ransom on the bill. The man seemed to be everywhere. We caught up with him and had a bit of a chat about this time in DC.  Enjoy




Rolling the clock back. Man look at the mixer!


Just in case you all forgot about the DC DnB message board. Proper time traveling business.

If you would like to find our man Harry Ransom nowadays:


I would like to apologize, eagle eye followers will notice that this interview happened in APRIL! Yes, I've been sitting on this one without even realizing it as it was a draft that just never got published. For that I'm sorry. Oh well life happens

Enjoy Fam. Keep Smiling
