Drum & bass history to be explored in new book by Kmag

One for your collection... 

Running from 1994 to 2014, drum & bass magazine Knowledge was essential for any true fan of the genre. 

Known as Kmag, Knowledge was one of the first British dance music magazines to treat drum & bass with the reverence and respect it deserved. With the latest news and reviews, interviews with the scene’s biggest players or incredible mix CDs, Kmag was crucial for so many fans.  

Which is partly why Kmag co-founder Colin Steven is bringing back Kmag one last time:  

“The main reason I’m bringing Knowledge back is that I feel I have unfinished business. Reaching 20 years was such an important milestone but it was a bittersweet moment and I didn’t celebrate it because I knew the end was coming. Earlier this year I realised that this year was our 25th anniversary so I wanted to mark the occasion somehow. What better way than with one last issue?

“At first I considered doing a magazine but I want to make it really special. One of the things former readers say to me when they find out that I used to edit Knowledge is that they still have all of their copies and can’t bring themselves to throw them away! So if people can’t part with their magazines then surely they will appreciate a one-off premium book?”

The Knowledge Magazine 25th Anniversary Book will be released in December with a hardback cloth cover featuring a debossed Knowledge logo. However you can pre-order now, and your name will wind up in the book’s credits, and you’ll be part of drum & bass history.
