. Dirtbox Radio is a weekly broadcast featuring a plethora of Drum 'n' Bass DJs from the surrounding area of Washington, DC and beyond. Founded by ODJ, the first broadcast hit the intarweb on April 21st of 2002, via the now-defunct Sessions1 network. Since that time, Dirtbox has gone through a number of transformations, keeping true to our mission (below).
. For some time now, we've broadcast on Jungletrain.net, and had a good long stint on Destroyer.
. These days we broadcast out of ODJ's place in Berwyn Heights (2nd & 4th Sundays) and the Barrio house in College Park (1st and 3rd Sundays). Grimm Reeper is handling hosting duties on 5th Sundays and possibly more as time progresses.
. The Dirtbox Kru consists of the following people, in order of appearance. We've been around a while, so not everyone's active these days, but family is family.
. We're all futuristic 'n' shit. Get at us on our Facebook Fan Page.

. Our aim here at Dirtbox Radio is to create an enviornment where we (the Kru and the people out there listening) can chill, have fun, and listen to the music that we love. There is a wealth of talent in the greater DC metro area that we are very fortunate to have, and we try to make the best use of it. We also love having people through that don't live around here - if they're good people and can throw down, they're our kinda people.
. If you're interested in playing on Dirtbox Radio, just hit up ODJ with an email. We'll gladly take your tracks, mixes, short essays on the meaning of life, etc. We're into hearing what's out there, as fresh blood is what keeps this whole thing going.
