    Hi there,

    I've got a question...I'm pretty new in the D'nB scene, but I would like to expand my knowledge AND my vinyl collection with much more D'nB than I've got now. Till now, I've been playing Nu Skool breaks and I would like to add some more funky Drum and Bass.
    My question is....a style of D'nB that I really appreciate is the style like Aphordite makes it, with melodic parts, nice melodic bass line and a straight beat. Does anybody of you guys know artists that have kind of the same style of music as him? Then I would like to check out some 12" by them.
    Thanks!
    Gr,

    Supernova

    If you like Aphrodite's stuff it's worth tracking down some old Smoker's Inc 12"s as well.

    Smoker's Inc is the name of the label, Rude & Deadly are two of the artists on it.

    Ezze mate have a look for labels called True Playaz, Urban Takeover, Soul:R, Advanced, Craetive Source. There a good set of labels to begin your collection with but you should really be checking out DSC14, Penetration Records, Freak, L Plates, Cause 4 Concern, Ram, & Transparent for that darker tip;)

    If you like Aphrodite then you'll love Bizzy B. Also maybe you'd like Slipmatt because they look almost the same.

    Aphrodite is a bit unique- i like them and also

    Hospital records - the only jazzy/funky style i like (Freeform is great!)
    Ram Trilogy (classic darkside)
    Bad Company (ultimate darkside/dancefloor)
    Matrix (nothing to do with the movie, ace flow/funky style)
    True Playaz (a bit "disorganized" but original & phat)
    CAuse 4 Concern
    Usual Suspects
    Dom & Roland (excellent atmospheric darkside stuff)

    as for new stuff

    Blackmarket Recordings (they seem to get something going on)
    and
    www.giana-brotherz.de (fresh on the net, nice distortion style DnB)
