Our AOTW are the legendary Ed Rush & Optical


Lets get right to the point here, without Ed Rush and Optical, drum and bass as we know it does not exist. The boundaries they pushed in the 90’s laid the framework for almost everything I love about the modern day drum and bass sound. As an avid lover of Neurofunk, I can trace back most of the sounds that grab me so much over the years usually back to things that they were doing long before many of us even knew what DNB was. They have too many amazing songs for me to even be able to fairly provide a list of, because frankly i love them all. Biggup to them and Virus Recordings as well, thank you for being the rock stars you are!

I have been promoting / involving myself with Drum and Bass in some way shape or form since about 1999. I recently started a solo project for production / DJing called Bad Syntax. I am the H.N.I.C. of Abducted LTD. I threw one of the longest running Drum and Bass weeklies in Florida called Protocol in the early/mid 2000's and really have never stopped pushing artists and sounds in the dnb community.

I live, breathe, eat and sleep Drum & Bass. I hope we can help expose the world to some amazing music through this awesome new site! Make sure to check out my weekly podcast on itunes: by Clicking Here
