    Yo, I live in Penzance, which is right down the bottom of Cornwall...

    Newquay seems to have a few DnB nights, I know there's a regular one at Red Square, but I rarely go out in Newquay, so I can't really say much about it... Me and a couple of mates run our own local music & arts project, we ocassionally put on clubnights in Penzance and we hold regular freeparties if you're interested... Check out our Spazspace- http://www.myspace.com/jericho_pz

    What kind of DnB do you mix?

    Wicked! I'm Barnaby... What's your name??

    Didn't realise The Kasbar played DnB... Thought they keep it really ambient in there... Haven't actually been in, need to check it out.

    As far as I know Mastervibe is still based in Newquay and runs regular DnB nights at the Koola Club (near to Red Square)

    Hope that helps!

    Yeah, the DnB scene isn't that amazing here... It's alright if you're into jump-up, but there's no appreciation for the dark side! :|

    The freeparties are definitly where it's at! :inlove:

    I'm in NQ at the moment on a little break and am thinking of moving down here from manchester over the next few months and was asking the locals the same questions. I'm gonna see whats going on over the weekend but nobody seems to really buzz about dnb down here! 'cry'

    Newquay is dead once the season ends, knew a guy that moved there from Brum, hated the place! Fuck all dnb, well mainstream the stuff they do get. Wouldn't hold up massive hopes mate
