FIVE PLACES PROVIDING INNOVATIVE DRUM AND BASS 

SOFA SOUND

Coming out of the depths of Bristol and being sparked by the man, DLR, Sofa Sound bring a plethora of flavours that can be drawn out of drum and bass. With a keen emphasis on promoting the up and coming talent and not being pigeonholed to one sub genre: the sounds coming from the sofa are always experimenting and poking around with the fun and possibilities that drum and bass holds no boundaries to.
