On Friday September 30, come celebrate 12 years of Pressure Drop Radio on 100.3 SoundFM with special guest: groundbreaking producer DBRIDGE from London UK!
In 1999, two first-year students at the University of Waterloo decided to take their love for music and DJing to the next level. Pressure Drop was born, playing
an eclectic mix of Jungle, Reggae, House and Punk Rock to early morning listeners. The show progressed into a period of strictly Drum and Bass with intros of Reggae and Hip Hop and moved to Sunday evenings, bringing the weekends to fruition. Pressure Drop saw Ragga Jungle reborn around 2002 and started exposing KW to dubstep in 2006. Around the same time, the show joined other longstanding Hip Hop programs on Thursday nights, solidifying connections. When SoundFM was defunded, Pressure Drop stayed strong and dependable, moving with the station, and now is on the edge of its most prolific period.
This event is about all the people who have supported us over the years and who have helped make it happen!
A veteran producer and one of the most experienced artists in drum & bass,
Darren White aka dBridge is an artist whose multiple transformations and evolutions glide through a staggering list of achievements. Over the course of a long and distinguished career, he has been at the heart of some the most exciting collaborative partnerships drum & bass has ever seen from Future Forces to Bad Company and mostly recently Club Autonomic. Forging a strong bond with Instra:mental, they showcased their Autonomic sound with an award-winning Fabriclive mix CD, worldwide tour and residencies for Fabric and Rinse FM. In 2011, dBridge returns the focus to his label Exit Records with the Mosaic Vol. 1 compilation and more artist LPs as he continues to be a mentor to the new breed of producers inspired by his career. As a solo artist, dBridge remains versatile with his own productions for Exit, Reinforced, Hotflush, and more.
