Part of my history, indeed a large part of relatively recent history for me as a visual performer was doing the visuals for feedback – Shefield’s premier drum and bass night. It was held @ the Corp – as it is known here – the Corporation nightclub in central Sheffield. I had been a drum and bass head for some time, although I can say that I have somewhat moved on in terms of my main tastes in music these days – I have left behind my early middle age. I still do like some of the stuff produced, but I remain a greater lover of the lighter ends of dnb – intelligent, liquid, the smoother and more rolling, melodic ends of the genre than the harder, darker, rougher ends preferred by many of the younger crew. As always I tend to always be the oldest participant in any event – unless, of course it is some pensioners night out – not there yet!
It was fun doing it all – creating the animations, the video flyers, filming bits and pieces of each club night, creating bespoke text animations for each performer, doing something new for each, often having the general palette of the visuals follow the flyer and poster designs. Paul and Little G are still friends of mine – the promoters.
You can still find some of the old stuff from the events on my myspace page – yes, it still exists!
The night itself combined both local talent, including very often the well respected local MC – E-LL, as well as the top talents of the national dnb scene.
It really would be nice to get back to doing more of this. I love to perform – whether as a DJ or a VJ. Sheffield and the North listen up!
