FREE ENTRY - FREE ENTRY - FREE ENTRY
Drum & Bass would not be the same without Drumsound & Bassline Smith (aka Andy Wright, Benjamin Wiggett and Simon Bassline Smith). Together the trio have body-slammed dancefloors from Derby to Durban and established themselves as three of the finest Drum & Bass tastemakers on the planet, courtesy of the blue chip label Technique Recordings â" an imprint that celebrated 10 years of killer dancefloor joints in 2009.
The magic has been bubbling ever since Wright and Wiggett met Bassline Smith at one of Derbyâs mentalist Technique club nights in the summer of 1998.
The Drumsound pair had been crafting beats for a year, having originally started as a crew of six artists, while Bassline Smith had carved out a reputation as one of D&Bâs most influential players, with a career stretching back to the early â80s.
Together, they enjoy an impressively diverse arsenal of music thatâs ensured their place atop the D&B scene for over a decade.
A peep through Wrightâs background and youâll find heâs a classically trained musician with a strong background in indie rock â" an ideal platform for harnessing the energetic groove that makes Drumsound & Smithâs productions slide over the dancefloor.
His Drumsound compadre Wigget has been a diehard D&B head since the womb, while also tipping his hat to his Jamaican roots.
Veteran Bassline Smith has been a funk and soul connoisseur for over 25 years and knows his way around a dancefloor blindfolded.
