Radio Quarantine: Dark DnB Mix EP5 (Oct 2015 YouTube Mix)

Still at a loss for definitions and telling one genre or subgenre from another but this is what it says on the Google Oracle: Drum and bass (also written as Drum&Bass or drum’n’bass and commonly abbreviated as D&B, DnB, or D’n’B) is a genre of electronic music characterized by fast breakbeats (typically 165-185 beats per minute) with heavy bass and sub-bass lines, samples, and synthesizers.

Okay then. This is what it sounds like:


It works.

The name Radio Quarantine works again also, as pretty much half the people I know are quarantined, having been exposed, and are awaiting PCR test results for Covid-19. I just had a second come back negative. Did it twice just to be sure because why fuck around and all that. Two negatives further rules out the odds of infection, even if I could, ostensibly, walk out and get infected in the next ten minutes.

And Radio Quarantine again.


Somehow it feels like 165 bpm or more accurately captures the anxiety of the times. Everyone who hasn’t been exposed or infected themself knows someone who has. There are hospitalizations and even deaths, though maybe less so than at this time last year. Make no mistake though, people are dying and who really wants to take the chance on how badly this bug will hit them? You just never really know. Like the best and worst things in life, it’s all about chemistry. You don’t want to find yourself in a fuck around and find out scenario. Nah, not at this point in my life, I don’t. I’ve already had too many close calls and survived enough stupid risks. I want to stick around for a bit more. I mean, I know there are no guarantees, but seriously. Living healthily for a few more years would be cool.

I hope dancing helps. Let’s see if I can shake these old bones at 180 bpm.
