Attention Canadian Ravers: A New Doc for You

Chris McKee, a Toronto filmmaker, has just issued The Evolution of Drum & Bass in Toronto, a look at–well, the title pretty much tells you what to expect.  The doc reaches back to 1992 and features interviews with Mystical Influence & Sniper, Marcus Intalex, Rick Toxic, Mr. Brown, MC Flipside & Ryan Ruckus. It also lays out the story behind how three classic D&B anthems came to be in “Dubplate Pressure”-“Let Me Know” and “Man of Steel/Superman Song.”

If this is/was your scene, it’s worth half an hour.
