Dara is one of what I call the 2nd tier of DnB OGs that came right after Hype and Goldie out of the DnB/Jungle primordial soup in the early 90s - stateside I'd say he's technically 1st tier. He's been around so long, played so many shows, it's but diety status at this point. I have a mixtape of his set with DB at Bassrush DC in 1993(!) that I really should hang on my wall as an altar. That's the kind of talent we're dealing with here. He'd been a legend in the scene for 20 years before some of you had even heard of Drum and Bass.
What does this mean for this installment of SD Union and 4/20? Basically this IS the coolest and most OG 4/20 party you can possibly go to from Mexico on up to about Santa Cruz - maybe farther north. Even better? Our much missed local wacko, Havok Mega will be playing that night too.
SD Union's Event Page. I believe they're also doing raffles for tickets. This event will be at the Ruby Room, one of my favourite venues in SD - safe, legit, established, and cheap drinks! Really, what else can we say. Thank you Ridda, Eric Yo and Technical Support for bringing this banger to SD on 4/20.
