So what kinds of drum & bass is everyone into?
Types, tracks, labels, and artists plz
I like all types of DNB, but I only play dark and heavy. I'm a big fan of amen / tramen breaks too! I'll also make exceptions for anthems like 'Shake Ur Body' etc. As they are pure crowd pleasers
Typical tracks that I play are:
- Bad Company - Planet Dust
- Ice Minus - Babylon
- Alpha Omega - Klash VIP
- Zinc - Ska
- Total Science - Squash
- Trace - Sonar (Remix)
- Exile - 108 Down
- Universal Project - Haunted Dreams
My current fave labels include:
- Ice Minus
- True Playaz
- Universal Project
My top artists include:
- Ray Keith
- Sketch & Code
- Ice Minus
- Universal Project
There ya go

I think my big thing at the moment is DEEP DEEP bass
So hence here's my faves
Devize & 3A
Too many to list really, but main ones are
3D MODE (brum's finest)
Structure / Radius / Second strike (Hazard and co's labels)
CIA / Advanced / Function
Cylon / Outbreak
Nu - Urban
True Playaz / Global Frontline etc
Generally tho I like to just buy a bit of allsorts, and lots of obscure promos and stuff. My tastes change weekly, I tend to say order a lot of oldskool style stuff, then a lot of jazzy, the next week then a lot of tech, then some with the big amens and stuff another week.
I like the dark stuff and jump up.
Urban Takeover, Prisoners of Technology, True Playaz (hype & zinc...pascal I'm not too keen on) and the occasional Ganja Kru, Dread, Ed Rush, Doc Scott tracks.
The dark stuff has to be getting better IMO.
Renegade Hardware, 1210, Ram, Cylon, Liftin' Spirits, Virus, Undiluted, eMotif, Moving Shadow, Posion, Underfire
Artists: USUAL SUSPECTS! Cause 4 Concern, Dylan, Loxy, Ink, Digital, Andy C, Ed Rush, Brockie!, Rascal & Klone, Calyx, D-Kay, Dom & Keaton, Stakka & Skynet, Kemal & Rob Data
Favourite tracks have to be: Usual Suspects - Spawn & Killa Bees...Brockie & Ed Solo - Lost Bass and Ram Trilogy - No Reality
True Born Nuttah
Andy / Red One and the crew
THE MIGHTY RIDER!!
Tunes .... OH SO MANY!!
Photek - The Form and Function Series
Alex Reece - Basic Principles (Dillinja Reprise)
Metal Headz - Terminator / Knowledge
Bukem - Horizons
I better stop before I go on a nostalgia trip! LOL!
well.. could you please introduce me tramen? some producers, labels, tunes.. thanxOriginally posted by stuuu
I'm a big fan of amen / tramen breaks too!
tramen is the name of the drum loop originally invented by Trace. I think it's an "Amen" break (from Amen Brother) mixed with the "Tighten Up" break, plus a little extra secret ingredient... TR(ace)AMEN ---- gettit...
Check out almost all of Trace's tunes if you want to hear what it sounds like.
Or check out: http://www.ac.wwu.edu/~henninl/homemade_firefight.mp3 for an example of a home-made effort by someone on the Drum & Bass Arena Discussion Board.
PLUS check out my tunes: http://www.electronicscene.com/studioviper
thanks.. i ever thought it's a usual kind (or variation) of amen, even i heard it in other tracks than just the trace's ones.. but i love that break much, but classic amen is my favourite and amen brother is cool too.. the winstons drummer must be crazy
Also, check out Trace - 'Sniper' for sampling
i know sniper.. but i prefer handmade breakz for my (although weak) tracksOriginally Posted by stuuu
