2009年、時代は90年代後半UKから東京に輸入された最強のDANCE MUSIC 、DRUM & BASS 。 この日本各地に様々な時代を重ね今なお進化を遂げている中、極東エリア 、山、海、自然が溢れる神奈川から独自のBASS CLUTUREを築きそれぞれのBACK GROUNDを歩んだDJ LARGE MOUTH & MC D2が主催。
Drum'n'Bass exploded onto the Tokyo scene in the latter half of the 90's as the massive new sound from the UK. Over the years, it has continued to spread and evolve throughout Japan, influencing the clubbing scene and giving birth to numerous home-grown artists. In 2009, DJ Largemouth and MC D2 came together to form Kaizan Records in their native Kanagawa, the far eastern heartland of Japan where the Kanto mountains meet the Pacific. The duo have since been prolific producers, broadcasting their sound to the fast moving scene by releasing tunes through a variety of mediums while continuing to perform regularly at crucial gigs on the Tokyo circuit.
