Joining us in the mix this week is the mighty NADS with a 20 minute mini mix ahead of DBR's next cutting edge drum and bass event.

If you like your Drum and Bass, then Nicky Blackmarket and Fatman D need no introduction.  The 360 Showcase celebrates the history and the future of Drum and Bass, bringing together established legends and the next wave of up and coming DJs and producers. 

Nicky Blackmarket, a pivotal figure and pioneer of the early DnB and Jungle scene, has been playing Drum and Bass to crowds all over the world for the past two decades.

Nicky’s career began in the early 1980s with electro music, playing across London in youth clubs before expanding out to house parties and pirate radio. After joining the ranks of Blackmarket Records in 1990, Nicky created a separate department in their shop to cater for a sound that would eventually evolve into Drum and Bass.

A key member of the scene, Nicky is still out there spinning Drum and Bass whilst providing support and promotion for the next generation of up and coming talents.

Fatman D is a man of many talents; MC, promoter, label owner and part-time DJ on the side. An MC who has secured his place in rave history, Fatman has been all over the scene since the 90s, providing high energy, ragga, double time and other styles over Drum and Bass and Jungle throughout the UK and abroad.

As another key figure within the genre, Fatman’s label Biological Beats and sister brand Young Guns provide platforms which allow new talent to shine and for the genre to progress. From Ultrafest Miama to Sunbeatz Ibiza, Fatman has forged a reputation to rouse crowds of thousands on all corners of the globe, so don't miss out on another Drum and Bass legend! 

Support comes from SkuraStelphy and Nads, whilst Room 2 will be held down by Alf, Brooks, Jakobin and Meadie.
