Planet of the Drums
Founded during the summer of 2000, the Planet of the Drums is the alliance of four of America's most popular drum and bass DJ's: ❈AK1200❈ (Dave Minner, Orlando, Florida), ❅ DJ Dara❅ (Darragh Guilfoyle, Brooklyn, New York), ❇Dieselboy❇ (Damian Higgins, Brooklyn, New York), and ❆MC Messinian❆ (James Fiorella, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania). The alliance was created to move drum and bass out of siderooms and onto the main stages of electronic dance music events. In fall 2009 the Planet of the Drums embarked on their Tenth Anniversary Tour. The Planet of the Drums is the longest-running annual national electronic dance music tour of any genre.

The longest running D&B DJ in the USA. Member of the infamous Planet of the Drums crew. Founder of Big Riddim Recordings. Dave, AK1200, has been a driving force within Drum and Bass culture in America since its inception. From his legendary mix CD's to his extensive list of high profile remixes and original tunes, he has maintained a presence within the scene for more than 20 years. For lack of a better term, AK is a "classically" trained DJ, mixing live for each crowd. Every set is unique and completely dependent on what gets the best reaction from the floor that night.

❅ Dara❅
A member of the infamous Planet of the Drums crew, this Irish transplant has been a dominant figure in the U.S. drum 'n bass scene since his arrival here in 1994. His discography includes 2 critically acclaimed full length artist albums, 8 DJ mix CDs, as well as numerous singles and remixes for artists such as Freq Nasty, Afrika Bambaata and Keoki. Dara co-founded the nation's first & largest drum 'n bass record store, Breakbeat Science, in NYC which doubles as his own imprint, Breakbeat Science Recordings. Dara's long standing relationships with the world's drum 'n bass elite gives him access to an astounding amount of new and unreleased material. His brilliant recording endeavors along with his incessant touring markey by consistently awe-inspiring DJ sets have made him one of the most recognized and well respected DJs in the country.

At a time when headline "DJs" shamelessly play pre-programmed or pre-recorded sets and the masses mindlessly embrace the charade, Dieselboy stands out as a rare veteran of the art and craft of live DJing. His focus on creating complex and unique mixes every performance have created legions of fans around the world. Very few artists mix live on three decks with more precision, intensity or finesse. For over two decades one of the world's great ambassadors of drum 'n' bass and more recently dubstep, Dieselboy, also known as Damian Higgins, is America's most iconic underground bass music curator and pioneer. He was the first drum 'n' bass artist to chart a single on Billboard's dance chart with "Invid" in 2000, and the first American voted into the UK-based Drum & Bass Arena Top 10 DJs online poll in 2004.

Respected by fans far and wide in the Electronic Music/Dance community, Messinian's commanding voice and stage presence have brought countless club and festival goers to expect the unexpected. A natural at fusing genres and uniting the masses, Messinian brings a raw emotion and intensity that consistently burns the roof down. His life is all about controlling microphones and turntables in front of wild crowds and taking the energy in the venue to a higher level.

Boundless inspiration pushed Mayhem to pursue Dubstep in it's formidable years, immediately signing with the reputable Subway Records as well as SubHuman and Smog most recently. As of late his focus has been brought back to home on the forefront a movement combining Trap music with Dubstep, in addition to maintaining a healthy output of Drum & Bass, while working with Rap artists such as Tyga, Gucci Mane, Travis Porter, and Trouble. His club nights Transit, Fuck Yesss, Heavy, Haute Mess, Tambor Y Bajo, Service as well as regular events under Atlanta Dubstep have helped reshape Atlanta's nightlife.
