WHO WE ARE
Ilovedrumnbass.com is a community of Drum&Bass lovers gathered on an IRC channel to chat and discuss about Drum&Bass any day of the week, any time of the day. Since 2006, we are a non-profit advertising website aiming at promoting this musical style that we love, along with their producers, labels and parties, whether they are small, uprising, oldschool or very well-known.
You can come and chat with us or simply idle with us on our official channel by joining #ilovedrumnbass @ Quakenet or by clicking this link. If you are lost, if you need advice about something technical around Drum&Bass, just feel free to ask and if you ever wanna share your experience with us and even help, do not hesitate to ask for an admin.
Ilovedrumnbass.com is also a webradio streaming and a shoutcast relay, playing 24/7 recents and older sets that you can rate and comment. Every month we gather the results into a selekta note that anyone can then have access to via our website right here. You can listen to our webradio by following this link.
We are also free blog hosting community (cf Ilovedrumnbass.com/blogs) to help music lovers promote their favourite artists no matter what their tastes are. Unfortunately, subscription hasn’t been made automatic yet therefore you will have to join our IRC channel to ask for your own blog.
You can follow us on Facebook and Twitter, where we usually share articles, news, interviews, reviews in order to keep Drum&Bass addicts up to date. We have our:
Finally, we endeavour to keep our calendar up to date with major and minor DNB events in as many areas as we can. We have an RSS Agenda available here and in case you would wanna synchronise it with your own agendas here is the vCalencar file you will need.
Ilovedrumnbass.com is improving communication too. Now we can easily create events via a meeting platform that we call meetILDNB. You will find it at meet.ildnb.com and it will just make a random shortlink refering to the gigs you wanna go to. All you will then have to do it type in your name and check the box to tell everyone you’re going or uncheck the box to tell everyone you’re so sad about not going.
WHO WE’RE NOT
We are not selling goodies, clothes, stickers, we are not earning any money out of what we do, we rather do this for passion. Every month, eight guys pay out one hundred euros each so that this website and everything it is attached to run smoothly.
We are not Myspace.com/ilovedrumnbassfrance, these guys from Brittany have their own ways of promoting DnB and they sure deserve support as much as we do. We’d love to attend one of their shows one day. If anyone would like to write reviews about them, feel free to contact us.
