On December 2, 2014 in Indigo, London, drum & bass history was made as scene authority Drum&BassArena hosted their sixth-annual award ceremony in association with Serato. Those who were not in attendance can now tune into the full ceremony, streaming for free on YouTube.
There was a lot to celebrate this year. The world is officially dancing to a 170 BPM drum. Not only has drum & bass enjoyed three unanimous UK Top 10 hits (including two huge number one singles) but there have been more drum & bass remixes commissioned by major labels, more headline activities by D&B artists at major festivals and more exposure on national radio than ever before.
