The History of Drum and Bass

Discover the roots of DnB with Peshay

Peshay, has embarked on an exciting new project with Apple Music, curating a mix series titled “The History of Drum and Bass.” Known for his seminal contributions to drum and bass the series will be kicking off with 1992, which was a pivotal year in the evolution of the genre. The new mix series promises to be a nostalgic nod and comprehensive journey through DnB’s rich history.

Who better than one of the genres original founders to take us on this journey, other than, Peshay.

Tracks like, “Piano Tune”, “Vocal Tune”, “You Got Me Burning” and “Miles From Home” have stood the test of time. His unique production techniques and use of live instruments have set him apart as a true innovator of the genre.

“The History of Drum and Bass” mix series begins with the year 1992, a time when the genre was just starting to develop. As Peshay himself says “Over the next few months, ‘The History of Drum and Bass’ will look back at some of the tracks that shaped the D’n’B scene.” “The first instalment rewinds back to the early days of my own career—and the warehouses where rave music was beginning to diverge into exciting new strands.” “We begin with 1992, a great year for new music starting to move away from four-to-the-floor beats and into the incorporation of more breakbeat elements, arguably the birth of hard rave music.” “These tracks are some of my favourites that I used to regularly play at the time.” “I was also experimenting in the studio and was learning about production, which for me went hand in hand with DJing.” It gave me goosebumps going through all these tracks again and putting this mix together—it took me back to the time when I was DJing at venues like Roller Express [in North London] and Tasco Warehouse [Southeast London], great, great times.”
