Beats 1 announce Drum & Bass Month

March 2017: Officially Drum & Bass Month at Apple Music, as revealed by Julie Adenuga on her Wednesday night Beats 1 show.

Julie revealed that Beats 1 will be celebrating drum & bass with even more focus than ever before via four high profile One Mixes, a heavyweight playlist bulging with a fair few UKF favourites and a candid chat with a VVVIP guest…

The series of exclusive One Mixes kick off this weekend in true style as none other than Calibre fires the starter’s pistol. With DRS guiding us through the Signature boss’s multi-shaded musical universe, it’s a unique mix from the man who drops studio mixes almost as much as he’s been remixed (never)

Calibre will be followed by Wilkinson, Alix Perez and Culture Shock. As with all One Mixes, each one guarantees never-before-heard dubplate material. These are going to be special.

Every month is drum & bass month for us. Here’s what Beats 1 creative director Zane Lowe has to say about one of our favourite genres…

“For me, drum & bass remains to this day one of music’s most exciting genres. Not only in its purest form, but also as it evolves, drum & bass remains an influential form of music. It has a pace and energy, a sonic impact that galvanizes people.”

Galvanize yourselves each week throughout March…

 

Beats 1 Drum & Bass Month kicks off Friday March 3 11pm PST with Calibre and will be available on Apple Music.
