NC-17 is a Drum & Bass act based in Toronto, Canada. The namesake refers to the MPAA (Motion Picture Association of America) rating system which undertakes that an NC-17 rating film would be one based around violence, sex, aberrational behavior, drug abuse or any other element that most parents would consider too intense for viewing by their children. NC-17’s love of cinema is reflected not only in his name, but equally in his music, combining both NC-17 rating style hardness and a cinematic edge that any fan of Drum & Bass will understand. Crafting music that works not only in an artistic capacity, but also as a catalyst to making clubbers shake their collective booties!
