SINCE the Outlook Festival and London’s Southbank Centre first collaborated in 2017, The Outlook Orchestra has gone from strength to strength.
They take iconic tracks from the underground and then bring them to life in a way that you’ve never heard before.
For the next chapter on Saturday, January 29, godfathers of drum and bass Fabio & Grooverider will join the orchestra at the iconic venue to present a special score celebrating a history of jungle and drum and bass – featuring some of the scene’s most famous and well-loved tracks.
Arguably one of the most legendary partnerships in music, Fabio & Grooverider remain at the forefront of a scene they helped to build, championing the now global sounds of jungle and drum and bass – and beyond.
We caught up with the duo and they talked us through ten of the most influential tracks in jungle and drum and bass.
They also sat down for an exclusive in-depth interview with our friends at Movements and The Night Bazaar to discuss the origins of the scene which you can watch below or listen on our Mixcloud podcast.
Check out their playlist of ten of the most influential tracks in drum and bass below and read what they had to say.
