On Tuesday 10th of September 2013, Ministry of Sound Radio Drum & Bass are heading to Sardinia to broadcast from the Sunandbass festival. Three shows will air live for six hours from luxurious outdoor venue Ambra Day in San Teodoro. Bailey kicks it off at 5pm (GMT) with Intabeats, Bryan G presents his V Recordings show from 7pm with Fabio and Grooverider taking over at 9pm for 2 hours bringing on air proceedings to a close.
Expect to hear guest appearances from DJ’s and artists plus clubbers attending the week long festival alongside the latest Drum & Bass music.
Later in the same evening, Intabeats will be playing host to Ministry of Sound Radio at the Ripping Club with a special line up featuring Dabs, Bailey, Bryan G, Doc Scott, Dub Phizix, Dynamite MC, Strategy and Kemo.
It’s to fair to say I was looking forward to playing some old school Jungle at Concorde 2, one of my favourite Brighton venues I hadn’t been to for quite a while. I was at first dubious about what sort audience I’d be playing to. Would it be original Junglists hoping to bring back memories of days past or was it going to be a younger, less educated crowd there to experience the music but only as a backdrop for a good ole drink up? I’d spent 2 days going through 2000+ records to get ready for this event but would the effort be worth it?? I’m happy to say the answer was YES! The crowd was a younger yet open minded audience ready to go crazy for the tunes that moved them at every turn. It was a refreshing and special experience for me that left me feeling warm knowing that Jungle music is still as infectious as it was back in 1995. Big respect to everyone who attended and gave the energy that made it a night to remember.
Below are some pictures I took on the night. If you’d like to look at more pics from my travels, click here.
Don’t forget to catch my radio show every Tuesday from 5-7pm (UK) on Ministry of Sound Radio for more guests, exclusives and the full 360 degrees of Drum & Bass.

I must say.., this was one of best D&B night’s in a long time in terms of quality music selection. The line up comprised of DJ’s who have long mastered the art of reading crowds and being individual selection wise. For me it was refreshing to not feel pressured to play the most popular or hyperactive impact tracks around at the moment, a tone set by the promoters themselves. If you’re looking for something deeper, this is a very good place to start.
Below is a gallery of pictures I took on the night. Enjoy and keep and eye on ShutThatShitDown.com for future events.

There’s nothing like a good old sing song to your favourite music when the vibe is right. On many occasions I felt some of the songs I enjoyed singing would sound great on tracks I was working on. Unfortunately a lot of the time the accapella I needed didn’t exist. The solution… sing it myself.
Below is the result of my first venture into singing on my own music. Have a listen, see what you think and I hope you enjoy.
