Breakbeat and EDM artist Random Movement is also scheduled to perform at the Sovereign. He will undoubtedly keep the party going with his soulful, smooth, and melodic tunes! Driven AM’s Michael Richards, also known as DJ Random Movement, announced his return to the stage after a long layoff. The liquid DnB veteran revealed in a tweet that he hasn’t done a public gig at a club venue since February 2019.
DB Burkeman, better known as DJ DB, a pioneer in drum & bass’s jungle subgenre, is also on the lineup. DJ DB was at the forefront of rave/party culture in the United States. He is regarded as one of the founders of the US drum & bass scene. Speaking about the early days of jungle music in an Instagram post, DB conveyed, “..here in the US, Jungle had mostly been the unwanted poor relation in the rave family, often being assigned the worst sound systems in the shitiest rooms at the big parties. But now, suddenly, there were promoters giving it some love.”
Producer, writer, and professor DJ Chris ‘Nightstalker’ Muniz is known for his jungle music, contagious energy, and trademark blend of high-intensity DnB music. He will make his first appearance in New York City during the celebratory event. He made a statement regarding the historic occasion, saying, “Beyond stoked to be a part of this stacked lineup and legendary event in NYC!! Celebrating 16 Years of @driven_am and @daveshichman’s bday on the same night!! NYC about to be blessed with heavyweight basslines all night!”
