Grooverider Free

I listen to Fab&Groove show @ Radio 1 almost every week since 2003. Grooverider, long-time DJ partner to fellow dnb pioneer, Fabio, was arrested for possession of 2.16 grams of cannabis at Dubai airport in November last year.

Over the years I liked Fabio's sessions more than Grooverider Radio, but after Grooverider was arrested, I found out, that I really miss the harder face of dnb. There was yang, but no yin - balance dissapeared.

Fortunately Grooverider has been freed from jail in Dubai earlier this week. Now he is back home. Originally he was sentenced to four years in prison. He was released as part of the 700 pardons for the religious festival of Ramadan.

Welcome back Groove!
