Drum & Bass Supergroup Planet Of The Drums drops debut mix

In the year 2000 Planet Of The Drums — AK1200, Dara, Dieselboy, & MC Messinian — joined forces to create one of the most legendary electronic supergroups the genre has ever seen. Since then, the group has dramatically effected the drum & bass landscape across North America, helping to move the genre from basements & side rooms to the main stage of festivals across the continent.

For a quartet with such talent, it’s puzzling that the group has never released a mix — until now. The group released a gargantuan, hour and thirty-seven minute mix that is as thunderous as the group’s reputation.

“Feeling their work completed, the team turned their focus to personal projects & the Planet Of The Drums program was retired” says a statement on the Dieselboy’s Soundcloud page. “But as was soon discovered, the drum & bass scene in North America began a slow free fall into underground obscurity. This could not stand.”

Planet Of The Drums may have fallen off the face of the Earth for a bit, but the group is back with a vengeance.
