Ministry Of Sound Radio has dropped all of its drum & bass shows with immediate effect. DJs that are affected include Bailey, Bryan Gee, Fabio & Grooverider, DJ Marky, Ant TC1 and Drumsound & Simon Bassline Smith.
“As of midnight MoS Radio is changing the whole line up across the board with a new focus on its target audience and Ministry branded shows and music point of sales,” says DJ Chef who helped produce a lot of the shows. “The whole dnb line-up has been told we are not to be re-contracted as part of their new phase.
“We have all enjoyed the time we have spent on the station and thank all those who have supported us and all the staff at MoS who made us feel welcome. Big up the MoS sound engineers who were always on hand!
“We know the listeners will follow the dnb team onto future platforms and networks and thank you all for the continued support. We would like to thank everyone for the support on all the social mediums, it’s great to see the supporters feel so passionate about our music. All I have to say is watch this space!”
“It is with regret that I no longer have the opportunity of presenting Intabeats to you on Ministry Of Sound Radio. Over the last 16 months it has been a privilege to have the chance to showcase the music I love and some of the artists and producers I rate to a large and ever expanding global audience. MoS have made a decision to explore other musical avenues and although I am of course disappointed I am also excited by what lies ahead.
“Intabeats will continue, with details to follow shortly but I wanted to take this opportunity to thank everyone, particularly the listeners, who have supported the movement. I’d also like to extend special thanks to Bryan Gee, Fabio, Grooverider, Drumsound & Bassline Smith, DJ Marky, Ant TC1, Steve O’Connor, Lloyd Spring and Nathan Goodman for their hard work.
“In a short space of time I feel we have collectively achieved a lot for drum & bass on such a recognised outlet. I look forward to welcoming all the music fans to our new venture where we will continue to give a platform to the musicians, artists and producers who keep our scene so alive across the world.”
