Already a legend in the drum 'n' bass scene by the turn of the millennium, DJ/producer Grooverider has been a champion of the genre's enduring hold on the dance floor. Renowned for his infamous BBC Radio 1 show in the U.K. alongside perennial DJ cohort Fabio, Grooverider has been a profound face for a sound that mutates hip-hop rhythms into a frantic, bass-heavy monster. Also a co-conspirator with legends the Metalheadz and a founder of the Prototype label, he has put together original cuts and mixes that have been lauded by dance-scene acolytes and indie-stalwart pubs like Pitchfork Media. If that's not enough, his résumé includes remixes of such musical icons as 808 State, the Stone Roses, Cypress Hill, and Björk. Not your average night set; this is the stuff of legend. -- Kiran Aditham
