As the nights get colder with Winter well and truly gripping us in the UK, I wanted to inject a bit of warmth in to the fray with this month’s Platform Project. How is that possible? Well, the answer is pretty simple – Liquid Drum & Bass and an incredible guest mix from Bassbird!
If you haven’t heard of this show before, let me enlighten you! This was set up a few years ago by DJ’s Pi & Jimmy Dark as a means to showcase up and coming Drum & Bass producers and DJs to give them a platform to springboard their music careers.
At the beginning of 2017, DJ Pi asked if I wanted to co-host with him after Jimmy stepped down and I jumped at the opportunity. Plus it galvanised me to actually do something a bit more than I was already doing with the Havey’s Highlights series.
So, last month (November 2017), I had the time of my life at Liquicity in Brixton with long time music friends Bronski & Bassbird and in our little chat (which we recorded and you can hear here), we gently gave Bassbird a push to come on this month’s show and spin us some of her favourites and she did not disappoint!
In the first half of the show, I mixed together a few tracks from my producer friends who rose to the challenge of sending me over some of their creations, with each one of them bringing their own unique style.
Then in the second half, Bassbird takes the helm and takes us through some of the heavy hitters in the liquid Drum & Bass scene right now.
The chat room was buzzing and full of positive vibes, which is what it is all about, and it made the show extra special. TigerPaw and gattica kid made a re-emergence and there could well be a revival of the label where it all began for me – AirPlus – so watch this space!
Next month, we will see the return of DJ Pi commanding HMS Platform Project so make sure you keep your eyes peeled for that!
