Kicking off back in 2007, the ‘Australian Atmospherics’ show broadcasting live from Brisbane, Australia, endeavoured to showcase a plethora of new and upcoming talent in the world of atmospheric and soulful drum’n’bass. The show host Operon provided a key focus on the less well known labels and artists with a constant stream of unsigned dubs, pre-release promos, fresh releases from atmospheric labels, as well as classic tracks from the archives of atmospheric drum’n’bass.

After a 7 year hiatus the Australian Atmospherics show is back on the air with bassdrive, every 2nd and 4th Friday of the month (11-13:00 GMT, 5-7am CT). Expect the same ethos as before with a slightly stronger focus on the more underground, syncopated side of atmospheric dnb/jungle, as well as some forays into the ‘autonomous/gray area’ sound. But don’t worry, a love of soulful, and classic drum’n’bass will insure many bases are covered.

Not being shy of the microphone, Operon enjoys having a bit of a banter over the airwaves so make sure to hit him up via aim (djoperon) or via the bass drive chat-room requesting shout outs for you and your crew, as well as those song requests for a fun, interactive vibe live on the show!
