On WEDNESDAY, APRIL 18, 2018, STUNNA unveils an exclusive installment of 'THE GREENROOM' on BASSDRIVE Radio. In this week's episode, we're treated to a special guest mix from multi-talented, DRUM+BASS journeyman SHOEBOX.
SHOEBOX (aka MIKE RAMIREZ) is a name mostly unknown; however, his projects and passion for electronic music dating back to the demo-scene in the '90s have led to some great accomplishments that have caught global recognition. Forming DnBRadio in 2002 from his apartment in a tiny southern U.S. town, not only brought innovation to the pirate radio scene, but also became an effective outlet for fringe electronic music in its early days. Artists such as AMIT, PARADOX, FANU, EVOL INTENT, EWN, PHACE, and countless others, at that time, went mainly unnoticed by commercial UK radio, but found a common place on DnBRadio's playlists.
"Pirate radio always existed to give fringe music the airtime it deserved."
As a pirate station, DnBRadio prided itself on giving due respect to under-rated artists, and in turn, opened people's minds to something they never knew existed. This unique flavor quickly made the project a top destination for D+B enthusiasts.
Record labels SECTION 8 RECORDINGS and PLUSH are the most recent projects via SHOEBOX - both imprints have received continuous chart placements, features, and recognition on a global-scale in the DRUM+BASS/JUNGLE/DUBSTEP genres since 2007. On these labels, you'll find a wide array of top draw bass engineers like: TRUTH, STUNNA, 360joYnt, QUENTIN HIATUS, NITRI, iBenji, SPL, MEGALODON, BAKU, OLIE BASSWEIGHT, and THE DEFT. On the harder tip, you'll find the likes of: SICK CYCLE, CULPRATE, UNSUB, DEPONE, CURRENT VAULE, PROTON KID, HOSTAGE, and over 50 other artists.
In 2011, SHOEBOX took his DnBRadio brand and partnered up with MAGGIE DESPISE from 'RECON', a local DENVER, COLORADO promoter. The two combined forces to bring that underground flavor of DRUM+BASS music back to the city, and by 2013 the crew was awarded title of #1 DRUM+BASS promoter for the region (THE WESTWORD 2013).
The 'RECON' events in DENVER have continued to move strength to strength, and coming SATURDAY, APRIL 21st, catch both SHOEBOX and STUNNA together live as 'RECON' descends upon its current home, THE BLACK BOX (314 E 13th Ave), for a bass-fueled evening. Info: HERE.
Lock in this week as SHOEBOX selects some of his favorite cuts doing the rounds and unveils a guest set exclusively for 'THE GREENROOM.' Tune in!
