WHERE TO FIND THE DRUM AND BASS - SWINDON

   1) Liquid:Garden 

 

Sourcing the finest and classiest in the soothing drum and bass collections, Liquid:Garden, ran by DJ XD, is taking over outdoor spaces with an event that honours the soulful and the filthy in drum and bass. Usually seen camped up in the SUJU smoking area, the L:G gang provide a wholesome drums takeover. From the delicate liquid touches to the more bass heavy power style, they have all angles covered and their love for quality drum and bass is demonstrated in abundance. 

 

Previously hosting a couple Planet V features, with the Future tour and 25 years of V Recordings, they've brought a spicy roaster from the likes of Bryan Gee, Saxxon and Randall. L:G are consistent in bringing some lovely drum and bass sounds to this town, whether it’s big names or the local DJs blaring their own sounds, they are in it for the right reasons and it definitely shows through their events. 

 

Upcoming events:

August 25th, Summer Blow Out - All Day Rave.

August 31st, LG42:Liquid Garden - Serato/Traktor Edition 1.

   2) Rotate ​

 

After surpassing their launch night back in October 2017 with Macky Gee and Harry Shotta taking centre stage, Rotate have almost definitely been making a name for themselves. With almost 20 shows under their belt and an almost never ending list of headline acts to remember, Rotate have aided in bringing another regular drum and bass night in Swindon that proudly caters for good music and good times. 

 

Whilst being firmly associated with drum and bass and jump up, the night has seen bassline takeovers as well. With the likes of DJ Q, Skepsis and Jamie Duggan having made appearances. Previous headliners can be seen as the likes of Hedex, Bou, Redex, Dutta and Simula, to name a few. 

 

Upcoming events:

August 25th, Summer Blow Out - All Day Rave.

   3) NO Motive DNB

Bringing raw dnb vibes to Level III is the NO Motive crew. Bringing the big and the bad, Limited and IC3, to their last event in June, they don’t come to mess around. With a previous show on Rough Tempo and being firmly rooted in the history of Swindon drum and bass, NO Motive always aim to provide a good party and amazing drums aplenty. 

 

The heaviest and most authentic sounds in drum and bass are usually found here, with the likes of Nicky Blackmarket and Bellyman, Benny L, and A.M.C, all being brought through. Although, that is not to mention their inherent focus on promoting and showcasing talented DJs and MCs coming out of the Wiltshire and Swindon area.
