Planet of the Drums
Planet of the Drums
THE YEAR IS 1999 AD

Three American DJ icons unite to elevate the sound known as Drum and Bass music. One year later, they found the pivotal voice to front their unprecedented project. These four men - AK1200, DARA, DIESELBOY and MESSINIAN formed THE PLANET OF THE DRUMS and began a journey that helped shape the landscape of the North American DnB scene. In a day and age where basic DJ skills are non-existent and sets are robotically pre-programmed POTD is needed now more than ever. These 4 veterans continue to set the standard for true LIVE performance and their ability to bring the crowd on a journey through the absolute best of Drum and Bass music has earned them their legendary reputation. You want the best? You GOT the best. It’s time to bring back the HARDCORE and HEAVYWEIGHT pressure.

Reid Speed
Reid Speed
Reid Speed has been a dancefloor destroyer for over a decade and is recognized worldwide as a pioneer of the multi-genre bass music movement. From her start at legendary NYC drum & bass store/label Breakbeat Science to founding her own labels Play Me Records and Play Me Too, she has remained a fan favorite DJ, a chart topping producer, and has been an instrumental pioneer of the North American Bass Music sound. With her keen ear, Play Me has become a launchpad for more hot new artists than any other label of its kind, helping to kickstart the careers of the likes of Dillon Francis, Figure, Bare, J. Rabbit, RUN DMT, Cyberoptics, and many more. Reid is one of the few who opened the door and who continues to set the standard high for women in EDM.
Fury

Drum & Bass is a culture with one eye fixated on the future. To achieve longevity within the scene a DJ must stay two steps ahead of the general public. The arsenal needed to achieve this task comes in the form of exclusive tunes and an acute ear for "the next sound". Since 1991 DJ Fury has not only met, but surpassed all these criteria. Steve Blakley began the metamorphosis into his moniker of DJ Fury while snow boarding professionally in the early nineties. It was during this time that Blakley attended his first few raves and was introduced to DJ culture. Reluctant to assume the role of spectator Blakley soon purchased turntables and unknowingly took the first step of his new career. By 1992 Blakley had begun to play the sound of hardcore U.K. breakbeats at events around the Denver area under the guise of DJ Fury. By the next year this sound had began to transform into an early prototype of what would be known as Jungle. Fury shifted with the new sound seamlessly. From this point forth the Denver Jungle scene snowballed along with Fury's DJ career. The year of 1995 saw the birth of the notorious Rewind series by Lowerworld which catered purely to up front Jungle. These events began to receive attention nationwide thus providing a huge stepping stone in Fury's career. Slowly but surely his reputation of providing the best tunes with flawless mixing began to spread from city to city. From there, Fury continued to expand his growing fan base by maintaining a rigorous DJ schedule rinsing out cities such as Los Angeles, Washington DC, Seattle, San Francisco, and many others. Despite this intense travel itinerary Fury still managed to hold down Denver by throwing monthly events (now known as Reload) and co-hosted one of the longest running weekly's in the nation (Breakdown Thursdays). Currently Fury designs for and runs the internationally acclaimed graphic design company, The Firm Graphics, in between his DJing and event promotions. He is a resident DJ for Insomniac's Bassrush, their drum & bass division, and the Reload events are still running strong and picking up steam again in Denver. One thing is for sure - you can always count on some dance floor smashing drum and bass whenever he hits the stage.
