about

Background

The Drome was founded 14 years ago in 2007 in a virtual world now full of authentic vintage pixels with an echo of bass and bleeps behind the speakers.

The Drome is one of the original underground virtual clubs hosting online and on various platforms including Second Life, which was the original location prior to exploring other immersive reality environments and showcasing mixed reality events.

A club that is dedicated to live DJs who play a selection of saved vinyl and scratched mp3's.

Expect all sorts of....techno, house, acid, electro, chill, dub, dubstep, dub techno, reggae, ska as well as other great sounds and blended beats between the flips and clicks...
