The History of Drum & Bass with Live Orchestra

Date 15/10/2022 Total price, inc booking fee £23.20 Time 19:00

Take a whole orchestra, combine them with a world champion DJ, and challenge them to tear through the history of drum & bass.

Following sell out solo shows & headline sets at festivals such as Glastonbury, Shambala, London Remixed & Boomtown, the critically acclaimed super-orchestra Symphonica present their brand-new show.

With their unique combination of orchestra and DJ, already renowned for their recreations of dancefloor classics, and giving them a classical twist.

As well as their own compositions, which fuse beats & bass with strings & brass, there’s no group better suited to taking on selected anthems from the worlds of drum & bass and jungle and bringing the energy up to a whole new level.

Led by composer & conductor Miles Hancock, with 4 x World Champion Mr Switch filling the DJ role, supplying backing beats, basslines and scratching skills. Anthems & classics from past to present are twisted up & revamped, with the clashing of amen breaks & double bass, strings, synths and samples.

This is a rollercoaster of a show, the history of drum & bass presented in its entirety, in a brand-new live format.
