Sometimes its good to have a friend like my man Tim. Mostly its an antagonistic situation where we are closer to pushing each other into oncoming traffic, but thats probably what makes hanging out worth while. Mostly he is trying to get me arrested and I am mostly making fun of how pale he is. The good news is that he is very impressionable and after 7 years of work has learned to appreciate Drum and Bass. Which brings us to The Colossal Event featuring DnB headliners Chase and Status.

Its going down this Friday April 22nd and Saturday April 23rd at The Madison Event Center which is right next to the Ice House in downtown Phoenix(Google Link). Tickets are $47 for General Admission for both days or VIP for $120 and then you get the OPEN Bar. I plan on attending and expect to be hard of hearing for at least the following 7 days or so. Are you gonna be there?

In typical Phoenix fashion there does not appear to be a dedicated website for the event making definite information difficult to find via Google. I want to support the Phoenix music scene but its hard to find it most of the time.

Here are the details as stolen from other websites:

3 Areas of music, with over 60 performers over two days!! Arizona’s first 2 Day Electronic Music Festival is here.

John B Podcast 075: Studio Mix March 2010

John B Podcast 075: Studio Mix March 2010 | The John B Podcast.

My first introduction to John B can be blamed on my nemisis Melissa S who had his Visions album/compilation way back in 1998. That album is rediculous and if you can find it I suggest you buy it. If you have it please send me a copy.

John B doing his Boy George impression

Since then he has gone considerably left and slightly diagonal with the whole electrostep fusion of 80’s synths and the dnb breakbeat. His podcast involves a bit of talking but seems to be a bit kinder to the listener.


Hospital Records – Podcast #111 – Siick Music

My severe addiction to the music genre known as Drum and Bass started in 1997 when I spent a year in Norwich at the UEA. The campus reminds me of a Doctor Who episode:

UEA building

This probably created some strange pattern recognition for me where I associate dark and wet and concrete with good music. Maybe it was the drugs…

Hospital Records – Broadcast – Podcast and Radio.

Yes he does talk a lot but the tunes are mostly unreleased and really good. You are tough pressed to find better quality Drum and Bass on a Podcast.
