D&B Shows Dropped by Ministry of Sound

Posted: October 1st, 2014

Ministry of Sound Radio has shut its doors on all future drum & bass radio shows, and has told artists that their lineup will not be re-contracted by the new phase. Artists feeling the burn include Bryan Gee, Fabio & Grooverider, Bailey, Ant TC1, DJ Marky and Drumsound & Simon Bassline Smith. However, the DJs know that their fans will follow them onto other networks and are thankful for their hardworking coworkers on the show.

On September 25, DJ Bailey posted this comment on his site:

“It is with regret that I no longer have the opportunity of presenting INTABEATS to you on Ministry Of Sound Radio. Over the last 16 months it has been a privilege to have the change to showcase the music I love and some of the artists and producer I rate to a large and ever expanding global audience. MoS have made a decision to explore other musical avenues and although I am of course disappointed I am also excited by what lies ahead.”

In place of the D&B shows, explains radio veteran DJ Chef, the company will focus on branded content and music points of sales.

Ed Rush Opens Up the Piranha Pool

Posted: September 26th, 2014

D&B fave Ed Rush has announced a new imprint, Piranha Pool Recordings. While the label has been months in the making, the project finally came to fruition after spending more time in his new home studio, where he was inspired to write a lot more music

Rush feels that the Piranha Pool name is a perfect way to describe the label—upfront, aggressive and hard to compete with. It will carry a similar sound as his current Virus label, but will also be a home for fresh new artists.

In the meantime, Ed Rush and Optical are finishing up final mixes for their new album, which includes the dancefloor banger “Scarabs,” which can be pre-ordered here
