September 22, 2017 @ 11:00 pm
The anticipation for releasing this has been mega! We bring you none other than RAM Records June Miller!
This will be the first and last time June Miller play newcastle, as this is part of their farewell tour.
The duo decided earlier in the year that it was time to call it a day regarding drum and bass production and touring.
JUNE MILLER :
A transcontinental duo, Mark McCann and Bart van Dijk met under bizarre circumstances. Mark ran a small independent record label in the UK, Bart played guitar in a Dutch hardcore punk band Deluge. Neither of them knew of each other’s existence. One morning Mark received Deluge’s album ‘Spot In The Shadow’. Unsolicited, to this very day he still doesn’t know who sent the CD to him. Pressing play, the band’s uncompromising energy and attitude instantly inspired him. He picked
up the phone and organised a UK tour.
Extensive jaunts around Europe, during which Mark and Bart had formed an incurable alliance. Bonded by the fine balance of hardcore’s beauty and brutality, they started exploring other genres of music, eager to find the same unabated spirit they loved so much. It didn’t take long before they struck gold: drum & bass. The ruthless sound design, the unashamed drive and fiery tempered tempos; the switch came naturally.
Applying their musical knowledge and intuition to drum & bass they got to work, picking up production skills and learning the scene’s roots with the fever that initially united them. Within a year they felt confident enough to get their material out there. June Miller was born.
This our first booking from outside the UK, so its a very special night. Lets show them how Newcastle does it!
