    shabba aint a dj mate :p. Btw do you mean good djs as in their mixing skills or producers eg; Hype is a brilliant dj and a not so good producer.

    Either way
    my top 3 producers:
    #1 Zinc - Simplicity at it's greatest
    #2 High Cotrast - best thing to come out of wales
    #3 Shy Fx - soulful and energetic

    DJs - #1 : Friction - the ultimate track blender
    #2 : Noisia - for that filthy sound and consistent darkness
    #3 : Nicky Blackmarket - original sets from an original junglist

    I'm not a big fan of MCs but...

    MCs - #1 : Skibadee - incredibly talented and doesn't take himself too seriously, i.e : Quality Street and Scrappydoo impressions
    #2 : Shabba - bouncy style and hilarious lyrics
    #3 : Det - I can't tell what the fuck he's on about but his voice really complements the music

    I dont agree with that at all,the first Ganja tune he did (cops) was the shit,so was 'you must think first','on that dust','we must unite'
    'Weird energy' and 'shot in the dark' on sub base were the shit too,there are too many to mention.
    Just because he tunes might not be that great musically/technically,i rate the tunes by what damage they do on the floor and them tunes done damage trust me.
