I’m Back

After abandoning this site for a few years in favour of that oh so charismatic social media beast, I have decided to do some updating here too.

Look for updates over the next few days/weeks including fresh new photos/videos/bios/info+++

DBE never went away, we just ignored our url for a while…we’re sorry.

Well, we’ve put the podcast on hiatus to give us more time to focus on music production, but we are still running events…including our next one coming sometime in April/May once some details get confirmed.

DBE News and Reviews Episode 37

Wow, the response to episode’s 35 (or 2-year anniversary) and 36 has been great! It is so encouraging to do something because you love it, and to have it appreciated by others. It just makes us want to do better things with the podcast in future episodes.

Unfortunately, with Episode 37 we ran into a few technical glitches – first recording problems with my Mac, then my PC (which I was using to edit or XML file for the podcast RSS feed decided to die. (And wouldn’t you know, I had everything backed up except for my podcast folder.)

Well, in spite of these things, we managed to get the podcast together and upload it for your listening pleasure. Look for a special edition of “Original vs. Remix” on this episode!

You can download the podcast directly here:

Two Years and 35 Episodes Later

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
 
TORONTO, ON (August 13, 2009) – DBE News and Reviews: A Podcast Where We Talk About Dnb is celebrating its two-year anniversary by releasing its 35th episode. Since starting the podcast in 2007, hosts Dexy G and Jocelyn Dee have completed 35 episodes; reviewed over 350 dnb tunes; discussed countless dnb artists, albums, and events; and made some great friends along the way.

But although they are proud of what they have done so far, they still strive to do better in the future. For instance, Episode 35 features a special guest reviewer inside the studio – Dustin Kapulet of the Canadian Content Dnb podcast (ccdnb.com) who presents a special segment of Canadian dnb for review.

 If you are not familiar with DBE News and Reviews, it is different than many other dnb podcasts because it follows a talk radio format. However, instead of talking about sports or Hollywood gossip, hosts (and dnb-enthusiasts) Dexy G and Jocelyn Dee talk about drum and bass.

 If you have dnb-related news that you would like them to discuss, news releases that you would like them to preview and review, upcoming events that you would like to announce, or anything else related to dnb that you want to promote, DBE NEWS AND REVIEWS WANTS TO HEAR FROM YOU!

 Send in your press releases or promo material to the e-mail address below. There is also a Soundcloud drop box on DBE’s website. Any material featured in DBE News and Reviews is also highlighted in the press release which accompanies each episode.

 If you want to join us Dexy G and Jocelyn Dee in the studio as a guest reviewer, or have ideas to share about how you think we could make the podcast better, DBE NEWS AND REVIEWS WANTS TO HEAR FROM YOU! It’s been a great two years, and the future looks even better.
