Ms Dynamite came to Loughborough

What a year it’s been for us at dbe HQ. As dub-boro closed its doors after a climax of final nights which blew the doors of all of the venues we hosted throughout this fair old town of Loughborough, dbe arose from the ashes as an all-together different beast. Starting with what could only be described as a ‘pulsating’ opening night with the hottest property in the biz right now, Katy B, along with Breakage, Mistajam and Scratch Perverts, we truly started the second half of ’10 with a bang! Following on from that we put on a night for the true music aficionado with a huge list of who’s who in the game right now. Toddla T, Redlight, Drop The Lime, Doorly, Untold, Kito & Kastle all blew the roof off an internationally flavoured lineup, proving that it’s not just the UK vibes you’ll hear at dbe.

Finally what seems like only yesterday was probably our most outrageous lineup yet. We still personally cannot get over the fact Ms Dynamite came to Loughborough, let alone destroyed the place with hit after hit! Priviliged by the fact she graced our lineup would be an understatement but nuff respect to everyone else who held down the night with the vibes to keep everyone dancing till the early hours. Roska and Oneman both bought the London flex to Room 3, showcasing tight new tunes from the best labels and artists right now aswell as some classic garage. Danny Byrd, Mensah & N-Type smashed Room 2 to bits with heavy hitting sounds from Drum n Bass to Dubstep. Room 1 was jammed all night and big shout outs to Jack Beats for coming down once again to rock it. We also have to give the plaudits to our new residents Jacob Plant and Tru:Tek for sticking with us from the beginning of dbe and its been a pleasure seeing them skyrocket in the game, Jacob Plant getting his tunes played on Radio 1 and LIVE by Ms Dynamite, and Tru:Tek getting their first release out on the legendary Lo Dubs label aswell as producing a fantastic mix for us two posts below! Bigger Than Barry and Basslaced also deserve a big hand for holding down 2 of the rooms from the last event, Brum and Notts stand up!

So here at dbe it felt only right to look back on 2010 with a retrospect of what really mattered, the music. Us head honchos have put our collective heads together and scratched out a short-list of our favourite tunes from this year and have tried to form a list that says as much as it says for dbe and our manifesto as it does for electronic music. We hope its not a select-by-numbers kind of list but you never can please everyone so we hope you enjoy it regardless…
