Los Angeles-based artist Segan offers insight into his city’s drum and bass scene and spins up a mix filled with quality tunes.
Segan might be one of the freshest faces in the drum and bass scene, but he’s already beginning to turn heads. First appearing with remixes of tracks like GRiZ and Subtronics‘ “Griztronics” and Tisoki and KARRA’s “Don’t Lie” in 2020, it was clear that something special was brewing. Then, Segan quickly picked up momentum the following year with singles such as “Don’t Play,” “Champion,” and “Attack Order” with CUSTOME to further strengthen his discography.
Now, in 2022, Segan is continuing his ascent through the ranks of the scene and helping showcase the future of drum and bass along the way. Last month, the Los Angeles-based producer dropped his latest tune, “In Your Arms,” which is dripping with his melodic style that draws influence from UK breakbeat rollers and anthems from past eras of the scene.
After the release of “In Your Arms,” Segan shared some of his thoughts on the drum and bass scene in Los Angeles. He mentioned that the city “really is the ground floor for dance music and especially for emerging DnB in the States” while pointing out brands that are helping foster it, such as Space Yacht, Brownies & Lemonade, and Respect, among others.
While Segan resides in Los Angeles, he’s also comfortable calling anywhere he can set up his barefoot monitors. “As long as I’m able to find somewhere cozy to make music, that’s home to me,” he stated. “And being with roommates who are also passionate about music makes me really feel at home as well.”
To give everyone a taste of both his sound and that of the scene in Los Angeles, Segan spun up a mix that is teeming with quality tunes. The tracklist includes legends like Netsky, Sub Focus, Grafix, and Pendulum, along with a flurry of artists who have stood tall lately, such as IMANU, ISOxo, and Justin Hawkes. Of course, there are plenty of tunes from Segan himself for added impact, so give it a spin!
