Behind The Event: Lucidity DNB

Hey guys!
Thank you for answering my questions for drum+basics. Who are Lucidity?

ALEX: Hey Jenny! So yeah, we are Lucidity DnB – founded in 2016 with the mission of bringing the deep and techy side of the drum and bass scene that we love, to our local town. It started really at the slight frustration of essentially having to travel to London to catch something we were totally into. It started off with 2 guys, me and a guy called Jack Sutherland, who at the time was the manager of the local music venue called The Ramsgate Music Hall (more on that later). I at the time was running a sound system called Infekted Hertz, and put on small parties with local dj’s and friends. He wanted me to help with the promotion, and supply the sound system for the second room at The Music Hall, after a successful first event, things went full steam from there. Jack has since left to go travelling, but we still talk about Lucidity when we get the chance.
Funnily Jack was replaced with another Jack – Jack Vickers, another passionate head, who joined the team at the end of 2016 to help with the running and promotion of the brand.

I’m always interested in to know where people get their rave name from. What is your story?

ALEX: Credits go to Jack Sutherland here, he said. “Lucid means expressed clearly; easy to understand. I wanted the events to be straight up with their purpose – to bring something upfront and different each time. Lucid is a cool word that made sense at the time and it just kind of sounded cooler as Lucidity.”

What is your background in the drum&bass/jungle scene?

Just very committed fans! Other than the events under Lucidity and the local DJ’ing and producing we do not have any background at all.

How do you go about choosing DJs?

JACK: It’s not always about who want to play at our events, it has become more about what is financially viable for us, being at the bottom end of the country in an area that isn’t really well populated with people that are into the sound we represent. When we started in 2016 we announced a series of label nights that were happening throughout the year, which were Spearheads, Critical, Dispatch, Metalheadz and Peer Pressure. These included some of the top artists in the scene like Hybrid Minds, Hyroglifics, LSB, Bcee, MC Tempza, Kasra, Ivy lab, MC Mantmast, Zero T, DBR UK, MC Fokus, Facing Jinx, HLZ, Philth, Collette Warren, Scar, Commix, MC Visionobi, Dom & Roland, Klute, MC Gusto, Script.

This year we have decided to go for a different approach. We want to book artists that are perhaps not as well known but will still provide the top quality experience we have always promised. So for our next event we have got DJ E & Blackeye MC coming to play. I actually bumped into DJ E at a tech itch night a month or two back and spoke to him about Lucidity and some of the issues we have finding DJ’s to play which led to me asking him to come down for our next event. There was a few artists at that party I respect, and I had the same conversation with them, so already we have some great ideas for the year ahead.

Dream line up?

Ed Rush & Optical but a proper virus set, Philth, Smyla, Mefjus in 2015, Audio hardware/virus set, Technical Itch… We could go for quite a while really but we’ll keep it short and sweet and these are the first few that popped to mind.

What’s the goal for Lucidity?

To just continue what we’re doing really, we love to bring something different to our area and to push the sound we love by always looking to work with other brands, labels and artists.

What’s next?

Watch this space..

Any famous last words or shout outs?

I definitely want to shout out everyone that has got involved with Lucidity, come and played or helped out in anyway, big up! Jack Sutherland, Will Spinout, Oversight, Jake Lee, all the crew down the music hall, the guys from F1 Sound co ltd for providing hench sound systems and lighting, script, everyone that has done design work for us, justin, jungletrain.net, big thanks to you!

Thank you!
