“Let me tell you why you’re here. You’re here because you know something. What you know you can’t explain, but you feel it. You’ve felt it your entire life, that there’s something wrong with the world. You don’t know what it is, but it’s there, like a splinter in your mind, driving you mad. It is this feeling that has brought you to me. Do you know what I’m talking about?”
DYSTOPIA “is everywhere. It is all around us. Even now, in this very room. You can see it when you look out your window or when you turn on your television. You can feel it when you go to work… when you go to church… when you pay your taxes. It is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth.”
“That you are a slave…Like everyone else you were born into bondage. Into a prison that you cannot taste or see or touch. A prison for your mind.”
“I’m trying to free your mind. But I can only show you the door. You’re the one that has to walk through it…Free your mind.”
FREE YOUR MIND on APRIL 27TH…
Take back your freedoms and join us for our Drum and Bass monthly right here in the East Bay – Dystopia, every fourth Friday of the month hosted by Primitive Science. Come get lobotomized to the tunes of Drum & Bass talent from all over the landscape and indoctrinated by the verses of our MC’s!
APRIL equals AWESOME talent that we are pleased to welcome for our 16th installment…
The Soundtrack To This Uprising:
CALCULON (Rubik, SubLife, Fokuz)
Born and raised in California, but having lived in Europe and been heavily into drum n bass for well over a decade, Calculon always knows exactly what the audience wants to hear. As label owner of Rubik Records and an internationally recognized producer, his finger is consistently on the pulse of Drum n Bass, having DJed everywhere from Hawaii to Amsterdam. With releases on labels such as Rubik, Fokuz, Human Elements, Big Riddim, Think Deep, and forthcoming tunes coming out on Good Looking, Smog, Vibration and Influenza LTD, his productions, spanning styles from melodic rollers to dancefloor workouts, are impossible to ignore.
Calculon’s tunes are supported by a host of DJs at the top of their game, including Digital, Dara, Bailey, AK1200, Crissy Criss, Asides, Survival, LTJ Bukem, Icicle, Loxy, Sinistarr, the Insiders, James Zabiela, Random Movement, and Stunna. Whether you hear his tunes on 1xtra, Bassdrive, or in the club, you will be certain to hear what makes Calculon one of the leaders of the new school of Drum n Bass in America.
