    This, except that Shogun isn't instabag everytime anymore. I would like to add Symmetry and Horizons to the list as well! Oh and Metalheadz always deserve a mention.

    RAM and Shogun for me.. although I definitely need to expand my horizons a little. I need to find a good neurofunk label to buy stuff from whilst I patiently wait for BSE's new album.

    Critical & Modulations. Both smacking it.

    Horizons have been killing it recently. some fantastic stuff has been released from them so far this year. hopefully more to come.

    Symmetry has also been decent but I wouldn't say the best label for releases.

    Would have said Shogun as well, but with the Prototypes releases, and the Friction bits it definitely brings them down a notch. obviously when Rain & Tripwire get released everyone will be bumming Shogun again, but recently they are pushing a more commercial sound, which is not for me.

    Lifted is also coming back, maybe stronger than ever. And agreed about Metalheadz, Horizons, Dispatch and Symmetry. Also I need to add Subtitles, Metro and Demand.

    that dimensions 5 ep was a step in the right direction but still not matching the same quality as other labels imo


    correct answers are

    critical / modulations
    dispatch
    horizons
    subtitles
    symmetry
    INGREDIENTS which you all forgot but i know you agree.. shame on u :teeth:

    but thats just my personal preference
