If you’re a drum & bass fan and you don’t know about Let It Roll: Open Air, the biggest D&B festival in the world, you’ve really got to be asking where have you been hiding for the last couple of years. Now in it’s 5th year as an open air event, Let It Roll has garnered a name for itself with fans across the globe. This year’s edition lands on the last weekend of July (30th July – 1st August), and with the full lineup yet to unveiled, there is much anticipation amongst festival regulars and newcomers alike to find out who has been chosen to do the business this year.
Check out the official Aftermovie from 2013’s Open Air festival:
After an almost half a decade hiatus, one of the undisputed kings and original pioneers of Neurofunk has returned with free to download (or pay what you want) LP.
Caligo is the LP title, Sotto Voce is his new imprint, SPOR is his name.
The LP finally arrived after one of the most drawn out build ups to a new project ever witnessed, which quickly became one of the most anticipated D&B LP launches in recent memory. The week before the release, Friction debuted a number tracks from the album and played a fresh guest mix on his flagship D&B show on Radio 1, to much furore from D&B fans across the globe.
The decision to give the album away for free says a lot about where John Gooch is now as an artist, with his House/Electro alias Feed Me hitting hefty heights around the world, signed to the mighty Maus5trap label.
The sound this album portrays is that of a matured producer. Spor was always one of the goto artists for hard-hitting-grooving Neurofunk and I’m happy to say i believe that Caligo more than does the Spor name justice. Namely the tracks ‘Full Colour’ & ‘Coconut’ stand out as tracks that old Spor heads will readily identify with. However elements of John’s work as Feed Me do shine through across the release, alluding to a fresh cutting edge Neuro sound.
UK Jungle rising star Audiomission is staking his claim for a spot alongside some of the new school jungle greats, as he earns himself his debut release amongst the ever-strengthening backcat of Bristol based Jungle Clone Records.
JCR006 sees Audiomission team up with Ramon Judah for ‘Gimme Gimme Gimme’, a super solid, dubwise roller, with a deep, throbbing bass and killer original vocal!

This certified dance floor filler features the vocal talents of Bristol based Blackout JA, who has worked closely with the likes of the Run Tingz Recordings family and a selection of some of the most credible vocalists to have blessed the jungle scene over the last 10 years, including Tenor Fly, Mr Williamz, YT & David Boomah.
