dBridge (redux): A life in drum n bass, "I make music as therapy"
Listen now
Description
I have been laid up with a serious back problem for nearly two weeks now and haven't been able to record a new episode in that time. But fear not, because we are taking this opportunity to revisit one of absolute my favourite episodes of the show, all the way back to February 2022. Fingers crossed we will be back with a new episode next week! -- From episode 006 (Feb 2022): dBridge is an unequivocal legend of Drum n Bass. From his work as part of Future Forces Inc. on Renegade Hardware in the mid 90s, through the supergroup Bad Company and the Autonomic project with Instra:mental, right up to releasing 4 albums since 2018 on his own Exit Records label, he has been right at the cutting edge of the genre, and of electronic music generally for more than 25 years. We talk about the early Jungle scene, subgenre fragmentation, DnB politics, the tyranny of rewinds, and making peace with your own musical output. If you're into what we're doing here on the pod then you can support the show on Patreon!
