Revered drum & bass magazine Knowledge is back after a five year break with a special book to celebrate their 25th-anniversary.

Features in the book include a series of roundtable discussions and we’re delighted to be hosting one of them, a panel on record shops at Rough Trade East on 29 August.

Record shops have played an integral part in the development of drum & bass. It was here DJs discovered new music and met like-minded fellow DJs, MCs and producers. However, while many of the UK’s most famous record stores have closed in recent years, there are shops out there that have weathered the storm and even new ones.

The panel will cover the past, present and future of record shops, with specific focus on drum & bass. Panellists include Nicky Blackmarket and Ray Keith who both worked at the most famous drum & bass record shop of them all, Blackmarket Records. Joining them will be Jon Shuffle from Intense Records in Chelmsford which has been in business since 1999 and Jack Christie from Container Records in Brixton who only set-up shop in 2015.

The panel will be hosted by Marcus Barnes, author of the book Around The World In 80 Record Stores. There will also be an audience Q&A at the end of the panel followed at 8pm by a back-to-back set from Nicky Blackmarket and Ray Keith.
