Guest Mix – DJ Prime – November Tek Mix (CAN)
The word “soldier” is very often used especially in DnB circles as a term of endearment and respect for someone who has selflessly and tirelessly toiled away in the trenches of a scene that has seen its fair share of ups and downs over its 20 plus year history.
Ryan “DJ Prime” Whittington represents the epitome of what a true soldier is. Motivated only by a deep love for the music and the rich culture behind it, Prime has been on the front lines of DnB from day one, following and pushing the format from the heady days of Hardcore into Jungle and forward on to Drum & Bass.
His biggest contribution has been via his dedication to community radio. After a brief stint on CHRY 105.5 FM in 1994 Prime hooked up with none other than Marcus Visionary and the two started presenting their “Prophecy” radio show on CIUT 89.5 FM in the fall of 1995.
Now 17 years later and the Prophecy remains as the longest running weekly Jungle/DnB radio show in North America and has served as the entry point for generations of listeners to be exposed to the music and the scene behind it.
Through it all Prime has always stuck to his guns keeping pace with the constantly evolving underground and refusing to be pigeonholed by playing the full spectrum of Drum & Bass on radio and in countless raves throughout his career.
Here Prime steps up with over an hour of brand new beats selected and mixed with a veterans precision. According to him this is the first of many more mixes to come from a man who’s passion for DnB is re-ignited every time a batch of new fresh music lands in his inbox, the same way it has since he bought his first pieces of vinyl all those years ago.
A tip of the hat to a man who’s humbleness and cool demeanor is a testament to what the phrase “doing it for the love of the music” really means. Respect.
