10 Years after “Drop The Breakz”, I’m still doing it.just differently. In the Netherlands field the fans are used to a slower, softer build up with breaks combined the entire time of track. In the midst of it all, it had also become a fashion show.
Now that the summer season has officially began, Little Five Points will see a lot more good-quality music and entertainment, and it won’t hesitate to slap everyone in the face! Here are a few highlighting shows for the week.
The bassline in drum and bass plays half of the speed of the drums. The changing of this equation produces “faster” and “slower” sounding tracks. Guitar riffs and extra beats are added and the BPMs are made higher to alter the sound of the song. Since 1996, tracks have remained in the mid-170 BPM range, producing what we know today as drum and bass.
Drum and bass branched off from the rave scene during the 1980s and since then, multiple elements have been incorporated into it. Jazz rock trance metal house hip hop and many other genres fused into the bass beats to give each track a breakbeat unique feel.
There were occasions of “mass hallucinations”- things felt and seen by multitudes of different folks on different drugs- some even sober (granted, not many). The music itself seemed to have a hallucinogenic power- and if you could create a beautiful painting with your music- you would literally become a “God” in the scene.
Because it is a type of dance music, drum and bass can be best appreciated to the fullest extent in clubs and discotheques. The bass is very pronounced, suggest by its name. Despite the popular preference of it being club music, many albums have been produced for personal listening. The most successful drum and bass artists to date include Pendulum, Shy FX, High Contrast, and Black Sun Empire.
Some even believed it was becoming a real “religion.” Perhaps it was the visions of too much acid and ecstasy- “candy-flippin”, when you mixed the two together. Perhaps it was simply the power of thousands of vast oceans of ravers, coming together at huge weekend festivals-but yes..
Whether you want the euphoric moments – or just want to have your face ripped off – you have one more chance to see EOTO in 2010. The band plays their favorite show of the year on New Years – which is set to take place on their home-stomping grounds at City Hall in Denver at 8 pm. The show also features Dieselboy, Liquidstranger, Heyoka, NastyNasty, Nit Grit, Freddy Todd, Rumblejunkie, Jantsen, S.P.E.C.T.R.E., and Ishe to name a few. Tickets are $25 in advance, $40 at the door.
