Drum & Bass


Recommended Posts

Out of that list I've heard of 3 and seen one lot live (London Elektricity) by accident.

They were interesting live. Especially the female vocalist. At first I thought that some random coucil flat mum had wandered onto stage, and then she started singing... ;) Holy crap - those aren't breasts on the front, they're a second set of lungs!

I don't mind a bit of Drum and Bass on a night out. I like dancing like a mentalist once in a while. Don't really listen to it at home though.

i was totally into drum & bass in like 97-99 and bought loads of cd's.. i think i have like 70 or so. which are now deep down in my basement. but i've started to dig up a few of them and surprisingly quite a lot of them are still listenable, like the harder stuff by ed rush, doc scott, decoder etc. but some are poo. however, i'm thinking of getting rid of them all.

does anybody here still listen to drum & bass?

I love it and doubt I can ever go off it.

Yup i still listen to it.... sitting here doing some work just now with the new Dieselboy mix playing. One reason i stopped buying it was that things seemed to be going more funky and less dark. So for the most i still listen to it, but i kinda gave up buying new stuff.

Tourque by No U turn is another fav on the minidisc ;)

I'm trying to get into it, what little i've heard I like, any good albums you can reccomend? Ones with bass a plenty :lol:

Try some of the Fabriclive drum and bass sets (DJ Hype and J Majik especially), they've all been excellent so far.

Dillinja specialises in supremely bass heavy stuff, he released an album with Lemon D a couple of years ago which ain't bad. Roni Size's solo album Touching Down is also full of absolute stormers.

I'm with idiwa on the funky stuff, I started to lose interest when every other track had either a female vocal or a brazilian influence. I'm only in it for the bass and beats.

Spread love never manages to fill me with smiles, plus the woman likes it too. A truly awesome tune tell him he be talented indeed.

lenny fontana might be kind of pissed off if you did that though.

i used to mix d&b but went right off it when it all went dark and techy and industrial. have been digging out some of my older stuff lately, it's aged a lot better than other styles of dance music IMO.

"for one priceless moment....in the whole history of man.....all people - all people - all people - truuuuuulleeeeeee ONE"

*goes spastic*

I am aware its a remix of the Lenny fontana song Nate Dogg, Its just I think the Cyantific remix is pretty sweet indeed.

BTW I think DnB has never been stronger.

Christ Calibre alone produces enough quality tunes to keep the scene alive and its not dark and nasty either. Funky and soulful is what I like the most but I dont mind a bit of nastyness on occasion, bit like sex really :) .

didn't mean to imply that you didn't - sorry if that's how it came across.

prefer the remix to the original myself, as it goes.

especially on tom middleton's 'the trip' cd - the way he brings it out of 'the clapping song' is just wicked.

I used to listen to drum & bass when the basslines made people shit their pants and the breaks scared small children. Now i find it all a bit, well, shit to be honest. The only passable stuff i've bought recently has been by Panacea, Needle Sharing, Remarc and Shitmat. I suppose Nightlife 2 by Andy C is ok but the best CD is the 2nd and that's all old tunes. I preferred it when d&b was evil and not watered down r'n'b whale song bugger shite (THANKS LTJ).

have you heard john b's "blandwagon poos"?

Yup I have, I got his latest album In-Transit, which is very good IMO

the 1st 4 tracks are 80's electro DnB tastic. Then it gets hard and nasty for the next 4 tracks ewith a return to the electro sound at the end. Except for Blandwagon poos which is the last track.

He is a bit talented IMO but not to everyones tastes.

Dont think twisted individual is a fan to be honest though :D

Pfft listen to you all with your Drum n Bass CDs, it's all in the tape packs!!!

AccelerateCulture series is god damn amazing, get number 11, amazing pack, 6 is great too, they're all great, havn't heard DnB till you've heard the tape packs to be honest.

As someone whos been into DnB since 95 and dance since 92 then I'm sure I really gonna bow to thee oh master of the tunage.

I'll make my own mind up thanks very much and You can take you Tapepacks and stick em up your arse. M.C. too no doubt and its all about the music for me, not some bloke shouting over the top.
