Does electronic music's endlessly fracturing list of subgenres make your head spin? Try cataloguing all the titles bestowed on U.K. junglist/DJ/producer GROOVERIDER. Let's see, there's "founding father," "living legend," "maestro," and, the perennial favorite, "the don of drum 'n' bass." Ironically, no one seems to know the man's God-given name. During his 12-year tenure in the London dance music scene, what's-his-face has racked up an impressive set of credentials: he discovered the jungle poster boy known as Goldie; he founded the well-respected Prototype label; and, with longtime cohort Fabio, he's helmed radio shows on London's acclaimed KISS-FM and Radio One. All of this is a longer way of saying the man is the shit. Both he and Fabio will be making their maiden voyage into our scene tonight. You'd best be there. Thurs March 11, ARO.space.
