DRUM 8. BASS LIVEVEVIL Glasgow School of Art, Fri 11 Oct

The Planets tour with Simon ‘Bassline’ Smith

Cast your mind back to that period (mid-90$?) when everyone and their granny was proclaiming that the future of dance music lay with the junglists and the underground drum & bass collectives. It was easy to do - their sound was progression given form on 12 inches of vinyl, and there was something painfully cool, dangerous even, about getting into this, the new music of disaffected black youth. Then, as far as the mainstream audience was concerned, it disappeared. Alex Reece was no longer in the charts, Goldie was on EastEnders, and Roni Size . . .

where the hell was Roni Size?

As with all great musical genres, it never truly died out, and the guys from LiveVEvil never lost faith. It’s the only dedicated drum & bass night in Glasgow that still attracts any kind of a crowd, and they’re enjoying the current wave of vitality in the scene. For a club to survive, it’s got to offer something unique, and LiveVEvil acknowledge the visual experience that their musical form evokes. The club’s Paul Reset articulates one of LiveVEvil’s objectives: ‘We’ve always tried to create an experience rather than just a club. There’s always visual as well as audio, and videos are created by the whole team for each and every


Going under the moniker Brand X, the team interpret the atmospheric and funky LiveVEvil sound as images on the art school walls, giving the punters more of an all-round deal. Hosting the Planets LP launch tour with special guest Simon ‘Bassline’ Smith (Technique Recordings), Reset says: ‘Drum & bass is in a better state now than it has been in a long

time.’ (Johnny Regan)
