    It's been awhile since I've posted but I can share what I've been doing for the last 9 months. Well, actually almost the last 15years. I put together a little doc for the Seattle Drum and Bass heads but I figure some people outside of the city might enjoy it as well.

    Below are links and the full "tracklist". I know not all will be meaningful to you folks but there are some sections everyone can relate too. We've had quite an impact on US dnb. Baltic room / drum and bass tuesdays is the longest consecutively running weekly in the country, 360BPM the crew regarded as the "godfathers" of sdnb celebrated their 15 year anniversary in 2011, Onset saturdays just celebrated it's 10 year anniversary, Seattle dnb heads in K mag, producers of sdnb, and community sections like the SeattlednBBQ's. I'll make notes next to each section for you out of seattle heads.

    I hope you guys enjoy this. Please share and repost and spread the word!
