What do the kids at Britain’s poshest school do when the beat drops?

Published

Eton College Dubstep

Eton College in Berkshire is undoubtedly one of Britain’s poshest schools. Alumni include David Cameron, Boris Johnson, Princes William and Harry, and George Orwell. It’s also one of only five remaining single-sex schools in the country, so it’s no surprise that the over-achieving lads at Eton enjoy nothing less than letting their neatly coiffed hair down and brocking out to some phat beats. Believe it or not, Eton has (or had, we’re not sure if it really took off) it’s own dubstep society (The Dub Step Society, they call it). The last meeting of these wild revellers that we could find took place in 2012 and it looks like everyone had a jolly good time.

This meeting of the Dub Step Society was only the second in Eton’s history but was keenly anticipated as the organisers had promised an explosive night of dance music spanning multiple genres. Promoter Dyl Morris explained that ‘for a successful evening of dub I put absolute importance on the sound system and I think that we did a good job here, as was illustrated by the number of attendees who commented on how loud it was when we played the background music before the acts came on!’ Henry Clarke OE had kindly provided an excellent lighting set up, complete with lazers, strobes and smoke and, expertly operated by Charlie Onslow (GRP) and his team, it was a sight to behold.

Montgomerie (SAL) played the first set under his alias ‘Montee’. His material was comprised mainly of house music; his very own tune ‘Serum’ was received really well by the crowd and by all standards his 40-min slot was one to remember! D.Morris (TEWH) then played the second set under his moniker ‘KMSTRY’, starting slow and minimal and progressing towards heavier, faster tempos as the set went on. Morris said of his set, ‘I opened with a couple of Trap songs before blending into Dubstep-I wanted to play a mix of songs the crowd would know as well as songs they hadn’t heard but would really enjoy. Once I’d finished my Dubstep section I moved on to Drum and Bass to get the crowd ready to repent with the man himself…Reverend Rude.’ Rev. Rude/Singh-Bernath (TEWH) then proceeded to tear up a 40 minute set of filthy Jump-up Drum and Bass, playing well-known classics such as “The Verdict” by Heist and “Say Nothin’” by Jubei ft. Flow Dan. The crowd reaction to his set was very positive, a great end to a hugely successful meeting which set a high bar for the next one.

Crankdat Drops New Single ‘Say It’

Published

on

Crankdat just hooked fans up with a brand new track, “Say It”, which features some melodic and rhythmic drum & bass sounds to accompany strong fluid vocals from Los Angeles based singer songwriter Sara Skinner.

“The production process of ‘Say It’ was absolutely seamless. I produced the beat earlier this year [originally] with no intentions of doing anything with it — sometimes I make very different styles of music for total fun…I sent it to this vocalist I met on the Internet a few months prior, Sara Skinner…the first demo Sara sent back was absolutely GOLD. She did her thing, and she nailed it. Afterwards, I finished processing the vocal and engineering the beat, and thus, ‘Say It’ was born!  – Crankdat.
