D&B bends the knee to the Kings of the Rollers

Drum and Bass | Saturday 26th August 2017 | Arren

It's been a big summer of parties and festivals, and one name from the drum & bass sphere has well and truly smashed it.

Before the days began getting longer and temperature raised a degree, the name Kings of the Rollers didn't carry much weight. The artists behind it; Serum, Voltage & Bladerunner are all well established in their own right and each operating in spheres not directly linked to another. Perhaps that's what makes their joint venture so exciting. In the space of a season the three DJs, through hard graft and a string of landmark sets, have managed to propel the name Kings of the Rollers to the front-line of the drum & bass scene and for all the right reasons.

So the clue is in the name when seeing these guys you can expect a fast paced, energetic set that is laden with rollers. Now by their very nature, rolling riddims can sit in all the sub-genres of drum & bass and that's something that these guys have capitalised on. They masterfully cruise their way through punchy jump up, old skool jungle and murky technical cuts like nobodies business. The result surfaces as sets that can immediately please everyone, and when pulled off as tightly as these guys do, it's hard to not be dumbstruck.

The summer's not quite out yet, and these guys have already killed it. There's still chance to catch them in action before autumn falls at Hospitality In The Park, London, BassFest in Manchester and at Playaz Birmingham. If you're not able to get to one of those we're certain that the Kings of the Rollers will be a staple on drum & bass line ups for a long, long time.
