There's loads of great jungle/DnB coming out - if anything my problem is I can't keep up with all these releases. I order most of mine straight from the producers or labels.

What styles are you into?

all kinds. from ambient dnb (new source direct remix by demdike stare) to elctro 808 to reggae.dub (7" jungle) stuff to old school hardcore breakbeat (reinforced) man. I came up the first wave stuff, loved the second wave stuff. I have been buying actual jungle and dnb long time bro. since 1992ish. I was ramming some jumping jack frost engineered by dillinja on picture disc in the studio a couple weeks ago.... taht shit was dutty man. you know how long i havent played or seen that shit. long bro. i am not saying i know anything, but things are so soft around these neck of the woods.

i went to a supposed jam at 229 geary only to find no one showed up. the venue was locked and some oriental guy was like "yo there's no jam here... whatever..."

Actually that party is postponed as Kitch (the venue originally scheduled for the event which was located at 229 Geary) closed in January. It's rescheduled for the 13th, this Saturday, at Coalition in Kensington Market.

I just noticed that the email on the blogto address is the wrong address. They were BellaTrixProductions where the email on the page says beallatrixproductions. In fact this event listing has an entirely different email address listed:
St. James Infirmary Now February 13 @ Coalition: To

I know the promoters, they are good people trying to inject a little rave back into the scene. They actually invest in decor and small little things beyond just setting a dj lineup. While I'm not sure I'll be in attendance as I have other obligations, in the sense of supporting your plea to nurture the scene, I'll still recommend checking out their jams.

is it all the crystal meth and oxy cotin? cant be... there are no jams to go to.... no one is off their face at non-existent jams...
