GROOVERIDER, THE godfather of the British drum’n’bass scene will be spinning the decks at the GPO on Friday February 12.
Grooverider began his DJing career at illegal raves and warehouse parties in Britain in the late 1980s, and rose to prominence with partner Fabio through his innovative sets at influential club nights such as Rage.
At these nights, Grooverider championed the emerging breakbeat culture that would eventually split from house and techno to become hardcore, from which developed jungle, which would in turn become known as drum’n’bass. He is widely recognised as the godfather of drum’n’bass for his pioneering work in the development of the genre.
Support is from Ernie, MC, and Ellie C. Tickets are available on the door only and are €10 before midnight and €12 after. For more information e-mail [email protected]. Next up is Judge Jules on February 23.
