One Year On

Words by Alexander, Photography by Jaber Tobaishi What’s in a year? The 2nd February had come and passed fairly innocuously without fanfare, an inconsequential date in itself until I realized it marked a full year since our last proper One.Seventy event. Last year, the same date marked the final instalment of our 6 month seriesContinue reading “One Year On”

Premiere: Cryptographic – Echo IV

Switzerland’s re:st imprint is by far one of our favourite labels. One.Seventy has been closely alligned with them since we started, both championing their releases and hosting label nights for them when in London. The label’s A&R process is second to none and often the first out of the gates to break new talent. ArtistsContinue reading “Premiere: Cryptographic – Echo IV”

New Focus and Opportunity

Words by Alexander Covid-19 has shook the dance music industry to its foundations. The outlook for the immediate future of nightlife is bleak, but could this be a great adaptive moment and ascendance for the more ambient, experimental and less dance floor orientated tier of Drum & Bass? Is this an opportunity for new focusContinue reading “New Focus and Opportunity”

Premiere: Akuratyde – Plume (Kid Drama Remix)

Akuratyde’s music has long been a staple at our One.Seventy events, so we we’re excited to hear that he is lauching his own label.

Respecting The Culture

Words by Alexander Drum & Bass has a reverence and respect for its history, or at least I think it does? Telekom Electronic Beats TV recently invited a cross section of since-day-dot originals and new skool trail blazers for the series’ first Drum & Bass blind test. 10 tracks, labels covered and release info redacted.Continue reading “Respecting The Culture”
