Our friends over at Badman Ting and Depthcuts are teaming up for Badman Ting vs Depthcuts, which promises to be a huge night for Jungle heads!
Manchester’s only dedicated old skool jungle night Badman Ting is coming to an end with a special Badman Ting vs Depthcuts, at Manchester’s Club Academy, Friday 13th July.
Three veterans of jungle music, Dom and Roland, Bad Company and Remarc will be gracing the decks with golden-era jungle sets, including a rare No U-Turn records showcase from Dom.
Dom and Roland has been a seminal figure in the drum’n’bass scene since its emergence in the early 90s. For nearly two decades his brand of dark dnb has received heavy DJ support from contemporaries such as Grooverider and Ed Rush, but he has also received regular airplay from many outside the dnb scene, such as the late John Peel.
Dom is joined by Maldini of the first drum’n’bass supergroup Bad Company – responsible for classics such as ‘Nitrous’, ‘Planet Dust’ and most notably ‘The Nine’, which has been voted the best drum’n’bass track ever in various polls. Rounding off the line up is ‘king of the amen’ Remarc – having released his first ragga jungle track back in 1993, he will feel right at home.
Promoter Nanny said: “We’re sad to see the end of a regular dedicated jungle experience in Manchester. We feel like every line up we’ve put together has been a little special and this one is no different. As always it’s going to be a really good atmosphere and from the response we’ve had so far we’re expecting to out with a bang.”
Badman Ting launched over a year ago and has gained an enviable reputation as Manchester’s premier night for jungle music. Highlighted by the Guardian last year as one of the country’s best new club nights, it has been credited with putting the fun back into parties. Their uncompromising old skool jungle and golden era dnb music policy has provided a haven for ravers less enamoured with the way the drum’n’bass scene has developed since the turn of the century.
Depthcuts is Yorkshire’s longest running drum’n’bass and hip-hop night, and it also has a highly popular sister night ‘LDN DC’ in London. This event celebrates its tenth birthday.
