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.

EVERBLUE [dubstep, techno, jungle]
KW veteran badman, original turntablist and true Junglist, EVERBLUE is an endless supply of the freshest underground sounds from dark to deep not only that but is also able to move into a variety of electronic styles.
He has been striving to bring Only the Best to the local scene for many years and keeps pushing all boundaries.


Dawn needs no introduction as she is the force that holds the KW DnB scene together with a personal connection to every junglist in KW and beyond. Rude Gyal Entertainment promotes weekly DnB in Kitchener, booking all local DJs, MCs and special guests. Add to that her dancefloor killing selection from jumpup to deep and you have the Rudegyal Breaks of Dawn.

Sin.esthezia (MoD) [Dubstep, DnB]

Sin.esthezia aka MoD brings fresh new energy to the bass continuum with an ear for the cutting edge be it aggressive new dubstep or experimental and melodic DnB. Rising from the ashes of his love for Deep House and Dirty Electro, the sounds and volumes stay similar, but with a new style and a new beat. Sin.esthezia has been on many bills lately and is a dj for your watch list.

NATTYPHYSICIST [Reggae, Dub, Dubstep, Ragga]
Co-founder of Pressure Drop Radio and Rooted in Reggae, Hip Hip and House and with a deep love for Jungle, nattyphysicist has kept Pressure Drop moving unbounded by genre. “Every flavour catering to the raver” has been used to describe the weekly radio show on KW’s campus and community radio station. Over the past few years, the show has grown its roots in the local bass loving community and will continue to do so into the future.
