It’s crazy to think that it’s been over a year since Fabio & Grooverider’s final Radio 1 D&B Show. Neither of them have slept, but it’s different when you go from listening to them week after week and then having Grooverider suddenly pop up on Rinse FM to go in for two hours. While he joked that Rinse FM didn’t have enough to pay him to do a regular show, it felt refreshing for “Rider Radio” to be heard again. If you want that upfront main room dancefloor drum & bass, Grooverider has you covered. He even pulled out a few forthcoming Codename John tracks (“Selecta” and “The Avenger”) of unknown final origin (although we’re hoping at least one of them gets sorted for that Metalheadz single he was tweeting about), as well as tunes from Cool Hand Flex, Prestige, Smooth, Mind Vortex, and a plethora of others. Solid material throughout, and if you’re like us… you’re praying that Groove visits Rinse FM more often. Proper “don’t know what you’ve got ’til it’s gone” vibes.
You can download the full show (right-click, “Save As”) via Rinse FM.
