There is now a ‘gofundme’ to give back some royalties to ‘The Winstons’ the band who created it.
You can donate here.
The drummer who played the beat died penniless…
If you’ve listened to Hip-Hop, Jungle, Breakbeat, Drum n Bass, Techno, EDM – Then you’ve heard it. Immensely important piece of music.
SUPPORT THE CAUSE.

Already causing a stir having been recognised as one of the top 5 new club nights in the country by The Guardian Club Guide, Manchester night; ‘Bad Man Ting’ have announced their next gig – ‘Oktobersesh’ featuring the likes of the mighty MAMPI SWIFT! one of my favourite DJs live. Who will be playing a ‘turn of the century’ set, with a set of his fave big hitters from way back when! This is going to be MASSSSSIVE and you are unlikely to see another set like it for a while. Mampi will be supported by the one and only MC Fearless, another true veteran of the scene.
Alongside Mampi they have another heavy headline act, bringing one of Jungle’s pioneers to the venue: Bizzy B will be spinning a ‘NEW Oldskool’ set! which will be oldskool jungle but updated to the production standard of today, should be dope!
As well as this massive lineup (all for £6 before 11pm!!) they have Devious D B2B Rick O Chet, Nanny Banton, Vamos, Open Plan DJ’S, DJ A-UP, Too Many Cooks, Mark Dean AND Bass! BMT is dedicated to JUNGLE, (ya know before Drum n Bass Kids!) glad to see it’s not just me who wants more jungle out there!
Should be a wicked night and the Dirt Cheap/Depthcuts team will be out in force! For more info check their facebook group here, and event here.

YES! this should be sick, a documentary on arguably the best label and most talented producer on the Drum n Bass scene. A producer and DJ who consistantly smashes it! I can say after seeing him over 20 times I would guess, that he never dissapoints!
