With the demise of Pangea, a rather large gap in Glasgow’s drum & bass scene looks set to be filled with the launch of Jungle Nation, which has been running for 13 years in Aberdeen. ‘We have been looking to do something in Glasgow for a while but the opportunity hasn’t arisen,’ explains promoter, Tez Hussain aka DJ Tez. ‘We feel the time is right now, as there are a lack of consistent drum & bass nights especially ones that look to book established guests.’
Commix have been enlisted to kick off the Glasgow launch. With releases on Hospital and Metalheadz, the Cambridge duo have cemented their status within the liquid, funky, ‘stuff your girlfriend will like’ side of drum & bass. ‘“Be True” is one of our favorite tracks of recent years,’ adds DJ Tez. ‘We feel Commix would be a good introduction into Glasgow as they appeal to a wide range of D&B heads.’
Co-promoter for Glasgow events, Iain Morrison aka DJ Amba will be joining DJ Tez on warm-up duties. Amba has been shaking up Aberdeen’s scene recently with nights like Everything Else Sucks and Hush Hush, and has supported Zinc, Foamo and Jack Beats, among others. That said, he will be discarding his fidget for drum & bass at Jungle Nation. Scotland’s liquid drum & bass don, DJ D_Fade, a resident of Edinburgh’s mid-week mayhem party that is Split, will complement Commix perfectly. On mic duties will be fellow Split resident and common sight at Scottish drum & bass nights, MC AC.
