    1 More Thing New Generation Podcast #001: Gifta

    1 More Thing New Generation Podcast #001: Gifta

    It's a brand new podcast series from 1 More Thing! 

    Welcome to the New Generation series. 

    Running in between our episodes where we speak to established talents, legends and pioneers, 1 More Thing's New Generation series gives space to those who are just entering the bass game and looking to make their own contributions to the movement. 

    These conversations will focus on the challenges young artists face in today's climate, their routes into music, their influences, their crew and their vision of the future. Broken up by a few musical selections along the way, each episode will be a fascinating insight into the life of an artist who's starting to make all the right impressions. 

    Artists like Gifta. 

    The first artist to be featured in this series, Gifta has been on the D&B grind for 10 years but has really made a massive impact since the lockdown era at the start of the 2020s. 

    Head honcho of Phase Records, and recently graduated from a year's business mentorship at the mighty Hospital Records, Gifta heads up an impressive collective of new generation artists on her label and is crafting a unique and formidable sound as a producer. 

    Dave Columbo Jenkins joins her to find out about her journey so far and find who see nominates for the next New Generation episode!

    1 More Thing Podcast #017: Mandidextrous

    1 More Thing Podcast #017: Mandidextrous

    Welcome to the first 1 More Thing podcast of 2024! 

    We are kicking off the year in fine style as Dave Columbo Jenkins is joined by the one and only Mandidextrous for an epic and inspiring deep dive into their career so far. 

    From their free party roots to their current status as one of the most unique individuals in drum & bass culture, Mandi chats in detail about their development from being entrenched in underground DIY culture to becoming a pioneer of their own sounds Jungle Tek and Speed Bass... Two 4x4 sounds that have had a game-changing influence on drum & bass in very recent times. 

    Smashing down boundaries and barriers, and setting benchmarks for fellow non binary artists, Mandidextrous has had one of the most positive impacts on drum & bass culture imaginable.... And is definitely showing no signs of slowing down. 

    We caught up with them at the end of 2023 just days after they won the Critics Choice Award at the Drum&BassArena Awards but before the awards show had gone live. FYI: we reckon Mandi's going to have an even bigger 2024. 

    Listen in and find out why...

    1 More Thing Podcast #016: DLR

    1 More Thing Podcast #016: DLR

    Unapologetically long-form chats with unapologetically inspiring artists! The 1 More Thing podcast series continues with a certified drum & bass maverick - DLR. 

    From his early days breaking through with Octane to his current position as the Sofa Sound bossman, DLR has been committed to the cause with pure unabashed energy and intensity for for his whole adult life. 

    Fresh from releasing his third solo album Money Till I Got None, DLR is an artist at the forefront of his very own lane with his own unique signature sound. He is a proud professor of the process and a huge advocate for realism, authenticity and progression. The very same ethics 1 More Thing is built on and that drive and inspire our interviewer Dave Columbo Jenkins. 

    So much so, in fact, the interview starts with a stark and daring confession from Dave as he ignites the chat and explosive revelation from an interview he did with DLR over 10 years ago! 

    We love every interview we put out into the world and feel there's a powerful amount of inspiration to be found in ANY artist's story but this one is especially loaded thanks to DLR's depth of self reflection and tenure in the game. 

    Essential listening. Find your nearest sofa and get comfortable.

    1 More Thing Podcast #015: DJ Hybrid

    1 More Thing Podcast #015: DJ Hybrid

    Meet the artist who's often refered to as one of the hardest working men in drum & bass... DJ, producer, multiple label owner, verified one-man-army and a man who's been influential in the emergence of a whole generation of artists; it's DJ Hybrid. 

    He joins 1 More Thing host Dave Columbo Jenkins this month to discuss his musical roots, his insatiable creative urge, the challenges he's had to overcome and the sacrifices he's made to get to where he wants to be. 

    With 2023 being one of his most prolific years, it's fair to say his hard work is paying off. It's a really exciting time for the Coventry-born/Worthing-based artist as he continues to stretch his legs stylistically, working with bucketlist labels like RAM and DRKMTTR, hosting his own show on Kool FM and forever helping the new generation with unfailing support on his imprints Audio Addict and Deep In The Jungle. 

    As Deep In The Jungle has just celebrated 10 years, it's the perfect time for Alex Hybrid to reflect on his journey so far and give us a hint at what comes next.

    1 More Thing Podcast #014: Total Science

    1 More Thing Podcast #014: Total Science

    It's the 1 More Thing podcast!

    Back once again with more deep tales from the foundations and stories from the underground.  This time with one of the most consistent and influential drum & bass acts to ever emerge from the early 90s: Total Science

    Linked through hip-hop since 1987 and active on the very forefront of rave culture since 1992, Jason Quiff Q Project and Paul Smithy Spinback have had a prominent presence on the scene since day one and boast an unbroken discography that has seen them put out fresh original music every single year. As far as 1 More Thing's research can tell, they are the only  first-generation act in the genre to achieve this.

    Whether it's on their own label Computer Integrated Audio or pretty much every other label in the game from Metalheadz to Reinforced to Good Looking to Critical to Hospital and every single stable in between, Total Science have always stood for timeless uncut drum & bass. Trend-free. Fad-free. Just pure breakbeat creativity.

    It's a creativity and passion that has driven them throughout the decades and super-charged them through the genre's ever-changing twists and turns. It's also carried them through a hugely challenging period of poor health and determined self-development... A period that has been so tough, this is actually their first interview together in almost five years!

    Getting deep into the topics of mental health, self development, discipline and working class roots,  this is Quiff and Smithy at their most poignant, reflective and thoughtful. No other interview they've ever done in the past comes close.   

    Join them and Dave Columbo Jenkins and prepare to be inspired.

    1 More Thing Podcast #013: Harry Shotta

    1 More Thing Podcast #013: Harry Shotta

    For our latest deep and meaningful conversation in the world of bass music 1 More Thing welcomes a record breaking barsmith... Harry Shotta. 

    Renowned for his turbo-charged double-time lyrical craftmanship, and his infectious enthusiasm and positive attitude, Harry has been devouring hip-hop since the age of 6 and describes himself as a lifelong student of rap culture. 

    Still just as inspired by the music today, Harry has been at the forefront of UK MC culture since he broke through in the mid 2000s. Bringing his hip-hop roots to drum & bass, his CV is a litany of trailblazing projects both as a solo artist and as a key member of iconic outfits such as The Uncontrollablez, SASASAS and his most recent project Road Block. 

    Wrapping up our trilogy of MC-focused interviews to mark the recent 50 year hip-hop celebrations in NYC last month, Harry sits down with Dave Columbo Jenkins to chat about his roots and upbringing,  his love for collaborations, the legacy and influence of the late, great Skibadee and so much more. 

    As always, this is a super inspiring conversation that provides a rare insight into the life of a disciplined artist who's devoted their life to their craft and set incredible benchmarks for the scene. Enjoy!
