Following an incredible debut show at London’s Royal Festival Hall, Fabio & Grooverider are reuniting with The Outlook Orchestra for a handful of selected performances over the summer.
Drum & Bass Played By An Orchestra
Who would have thought that drum & bass could have been played by an orchestra, let alone have sounded as incredible as it did?
The inaugural link up between Fabio, Grooverider & The Outlook Orchestra blew the roof off The Royal Festival Hall & had the sold out crowd on their feet from start to finish.
When Fabio & Grooverider, two icons (and arguably the inventors of the genre), were given the reigns to select the tracklist they went all in! Pulling in guest appearances from Cleveland Watkiss, Jenna G & MC GQ, the performance showcased a history of drum and bass music including 30 iconic tracks such as We Are IE, Shadow Boxing, Pulp Fiction, Casino Royale, Racing Green, The Nine, Bricks Don’t Roll, Messiah & an incredible performance from Jenna G to Shy FX & T Powers feel good vocal D&B track Feelings.

Hear More From Fabio & Grooverider
Ahead of the performance at The Royal Festival Hall, Fabio & Grooverider were interviewed for the Resident Advisor Exchange podcast where they gave some insights into how the show came together.
The pair also chatted with host Heléna Star about their staying power in the scene, the legacy of their seminal club night Rage, how drum & bass is still growing, and how humour is a vital part of their relationship. Fittingly, they also cracked a lot of jokes!
