The Godfather of Drum n' Bass in America, AK1200 has been the link between the music and the fans and DJ's alike in the states ever since its inception. He is the longest running DnB DJ in the USA, and was the first to give exposure to hundreds of UK based DJ's and producers. His annual Planet of the Drums tour, alongside fellow comrades Dieselboy and Dara and hype man Messinian has been the most successful running electronica tour since it began in 2000.

Over the years, AK has released 8 mix CD's, and 1 artist album, along with several singles, and has remixed countless well known electronic acts such as: Crystal Method, Rabbit in the Moon, Keoki, Dub Pistols, Cirrus, Freestyle, Rachel Wallace, Tribe called Quest, and many more. His remix of Cleveland Lounge's “Drowning”, was in regular rotation on radio stations all over the USA, and is widely viewed as the most well known DnB tune in America, and was in dance charts all over the world.

His 8 year stint as head of A&R with longtime friend Rob Playford, on Playford's legendary Moving Shadow label, has helped make AK one of the most influential DnB figures on the globe.

San Francisco producer Comma is projecting holograms of his vision for the future of music. As a member of the tastemaker beat collective Frite Nite, he's one of the fastest rising names in the Bay Area's diverse production scene. With influences ranging from the UK underground, ambient techno, Detroit futurism, and a life-long love for hip-hop, Comma has been steadily advancing new sounds as a DJ, producer, and enthusiast of forward thinking music.

    I didnt know he was still touring, ak1200 brings me back to the late 90’s, in atlanta, on drugs. Oh the good old days. Hook me up!

    Drum and Bass
    up in my face.
    Be dancin’ my ass
    all over the place.
    Looks like I beg
    to shake a leg,
    drink from a keg,
    and dance and play
    the night away.
    So here I go,
    “Pipeline-can you make it so?”

    I would like to go because it seems that there aren’t any good drum & bass shows anymore, but they’ve all been replaced by dubstep. & AK1200 was my first introduction D&B. i’d love to see him.

    Haven’t seen AK by himself ever. I’ve only seen him with POTD tour. Would love to see him and enjoy some good dnb!

    My friend and I were in West Hollywood and we asked this guy working at a record store, “Do you know if there’s anywhere we could hear some Drum n’ Bass?” He replied, “Um no, that whole scene is kind of over.” I need to prove him wrong!

    I’d love to get heavy with some drum and bass via AK 1200 tonight. I’ve had one hell of a month.

    I finally started getting into DnB late in the game, so this show would be like a crash course in booty shaking

    I’m from Orlando. I own Fully Automatic on casette tape. And AK1200 is like a ray of sunshine from home.

    Memories of massive outdoor camping electronic music event in northern Ohio called family affair, dancing the morning away to some lovely beats known as AK1200.

    This is why I need tickets. For nostalgic purposes.

    This mans album Fully Automatic was literally the first drum n bass I ever heard. Immediately addicted…

    Then on to many trips to see him in New Orleans, Austin, Houston, Dallas, Baltimore, D.C., Philly and New York. All except for my new-ish and permanent home here in the great city of Portland. I was so inspired by the music of Fully Automatic that I immersed myself in the scene and DnB itself. Became a traveling Dj and producer myself and still look to him as my initial source of inspiration. I now have a little junglist of my own and he has kept me from getting out and hearing some good DnB for the soul in so long it should be Criminal.

    that’s why I should get to go.

    Just realized this was over 3 years ago.

    Sad as fuck….
