All DNB/Jungle Lineup for the 18+ crowd! If you want, wear a costume since Halloween is the following weekend, if not, try to rock some camo to bring back the Junglist vibe :)
It has been a while since there has been an all DNB/Jungle event so I hope everyone is as excited as I am. If you are 18-21, make sure to come out early and get a history lesson as Xray and Cutups take you through the mid to late nineties with some Atmospheric DNB and Ragga Jungle. NC-17

These guys have been putting out some huuuge tunes on some serious labels. Shawn from the duo will be coming down to show Pittsburgh the NC-17 sound. They have been teaming up with KC(below) and have produced some really nasty dancefloor tracks.
NC-17 is a Drum & Bass duo of talented artists based in Toronto, Canada consisting of Peter & Shawn.
Originally starting out with Peter in 2004, NC-17 became a two man operation in 2007 when Korosiv joined the ranks to form one of the most promising acts in the Toronto scene. Aware of their local scene’s competitive nature and understanding that Toronto D&B fans are generally more enamoured with the harder and darker side of the genre, NC-17 chose deliberately to spearhead a rough and ready sound that would win them acclaim from their peers. Initially learning their craft from Impulse of Corrupt Souls fame, the boys began to draw on a huge range of musical and audio-visual influences to create their own unique sound.
Working together as a unit, NC-17 is held together by an obviously close friendship and individual roles within the group. Peter is the eldest of the group and comes from a musical family (his mother was a singer in Turkey during her early 20s). He houses the main NC-17 studio and is an experienced DJ, promoter, producer and University educated film maker. Shawn, a professional drummer and the son of a sound engineer who toured with the likes of Pink Floyd is originally from Ohio. As soon as the two got into the studio together they knew they had something special to offer and Canada’s most promising Drum & Bass production outfit was born.
Citing inspiration from as far and wide as the Goblin, Dario Argento, Wu-Tang Clan, Led Zeppelin, Beastie Boys, Lucio Fulci, Fabio Frizzi, Konflict, Ed Rush, Trace, Jeff Mills, DJ Randall and Pink Floyd it’s clear to see that NC-17 have a solid foundation to build on and already their own musical output is featuring not only in their regular DJ slots around their home city, but also in the sets of DJs as world renowned as Andy C, Ed Rush, Optical, Randall, Pendulum, Trace, Bad Company, Red One, Shimon & many more.
Signing their first two hard hitting tracks to Sinuous Recordings in 2004, there’s now no stopping this duo who have lined up releases on DSCI4, MAC II, Circle, Sudden Def and just recently signing a single to Andy C Ram Sister label Frequency.

Kevin has been around the DNB scene in Ohio for a loong time. He caught my attention when he played at Junglodium back in 2000. Since then he has been producing some very nice tunes and has teamed up with NC-17. He has had some tracks featured on Dieselboy's Mix CDs so you have surely heard his sound. Ratana b2b Kirby
