JUICE Drum and Bass began in Bend, Oregon in 2005, as the monthly brainchild of Chemynne Perlingieri (aka mulchFactor). A listener of DnB since the early 90s, and promoter of the genre & artists since 2004; JUICE has grown over the years remaining one of the the most solid and now the longest running drum n bass night in Oregon.

Moving north, JUICE continued on in Portland after 2010, hosting national/international producers focused on the sounds of deep soulful drum and bass. The night has been running on Thursdays bi-monthly for the past five years, and is now last Fridays monthly at The Whiskey Bar.

Growing the brand of JUICE as a staple in Pacific Northwest music culture, JUICE has hosted some of DnB’s finest out to Oregon such as DJ MARKY, LTJ Bukem, Dub Phizix & Strategy, Drumsound & Bassline Smith, Bladerunner, Total Science, Lenzman, Big bUd, Kubiks & Lomax, ASC, Method One, Stunna, Random Movement, Artificial Intelligence, Atlantic Connection, Utah Jazz, dBridge, OmUnit, Technimatic, Zero T, Spectrasoul, LSB & DRS, Commix…and many more incredible producers. The sound of JUICE continues to be represented through the continuation of the night, and through occasional podcasts found at: soundcloud.com/juicedrumandbass.

Alongside running a graphic design business of 21 years (which is now slowly being retired), Chemynne’s love-of-DnB-travels for promoting (and djing) have spanned across the coasts and all over the UK. While DJing is not her focus, “mulchFactor” mixes have been featured on local and European radio, DnBRadioBrazil, Bassdrive.com, and on MusicalSafari.com (Speech from Arrested Development’s personal music website).

Bringing great support and backbone to JUICE’s events’ is co-operator/partner Maria Chaparro, tech wizard Thijs Boonstra, and marketing pro Hillary ‘Darling’ Bryan. Residents Definition Positive (DnB Radio PDX/Salem), David Dyer (Prestige Music Group/Oakland/PDX), Revival (Soul Deep Recs/Fokuz/PDX), Praderz (UK/PDX), and Subfugitive (PDX) round out this diverse and talented crew. Launching from JUICE, Maria and Chemynne have partnered to create BassRoutes, LLC: emerging from a devotion to the music and a drive to support the artists on a deeper level. BassRoutes’ mission is to provide distinguishable agency service to comprehensively meet artists tour and promotional needs. (more through info@bassroutes.com or facebook.com/bassroutes)
