Met one of the all time legends of D&B music and a fellow Nike+ runner John B in Helsinki last weekend. Playground is not really a top venue right now which  showed on the attendance, but great energetic party anyway!

Wasn't going to comment any more on Playground in general, but after having read more about what's going on around it, all I can say is that I've never even tried any type of drugs and I've still been to Rose Garden / Playground on a few occasions and always had a good time while seeing some of the greatest artists of British electronic music play. People saying that it's based on "playing the same song from 10pm - 4am" and "a place suitable only for drug abusers" while stumbling in to Swengi for a Koskenkorva karaoke should try a reality check.

Here's a track that has influenced so many D&B and Dubstep tunes that have come out between 2008-2011:
