    I picked this up on vinyl few weeks back - love it to break things down - so any suggestions on similar stuff ? what do you 'class' this stuff as ? half time DnB? instrumental hip-hop ? dub ?

    Ez Oria,
    Been getting really into this sort of dnb recently too. I would call it 'downbeat drumstep' as apposed to 'jump-up drumstep'..... eg:- Taxman - Look What You've Done & Hazard - Wicked So.
    I also picked up the Ramadanman remix of Tense. Other stuff in my stack that sort of style:-

    ST Files - Crackden
    Jubei & Phobia - Guillotine (Breakage rmx)
    Pearson Sound (Ramadanman) - Down With You / Higher
    Instra:mental - End Credits
    Instra:mental - Sepia Tones EP
    Black Pocket - Ur A Sta (dBridge rmx)
    Alix Perez - 1984 / Suffer In Silence
    Synkro - Departure
    Helios - First Dream Called Ocean (Stray rmx)
    Sabre - Marvel
    Consequence - Dreadtone
    Consequence - Pseudo Echo
    Consequence - Live For Never LP............. most tunes on here............ From A Distance, Reflex Reactions, A Man And A Woman & 11 Circles - stand out for me
    ASC - Phobos / Matter Of Time
    ASC - Porcelain
    Abstract Elements - Wrong Way / Abysmal Depth
    System - The Voices
    Code 3 - Living Proof / Response Call
    dBridge - Love Hotel / The Dim Light
    Mode - Stats / Riley
    Mode - Warning
    Dan HabarNam - One
    Data - Tapeworn
    Data - Torn
    Oak - Chizra
    Bop - Space Abyss
    Rockwell - Tribes
    Calibre - Steptoe

    No worries. Good shout on Flying Lotus - Nick. Not checked them out before.
    I was tempted to get Scuba's Triangulation LP, but only liked a couple of the drumstep tunes on there - Before & So You Think Youre Special

    Few others :-

    dBridge, Instramental & Skream - Arcacia Avenue
    Breakage - Clarendon / The Shroud
    Mr Sizef & Unquote - Hours Have No Reverse Motion
    Raiden - Danzon

    Wtf is drumstep who invented that? Half-Stepish tracks have been hear for ages:



    Really don't know when half step changed to drumstep. Don't know where you get that with the 90bpm too. most if not all of those tracks been produced in the 170-180 bpm range. (Maybe Ur A Sta remix not)

    half a dozen and six. you could say 90bpm 'full' step is 180bpm 'half' step ... basically i'm looking for something which feels half the speed ! not too worried about the buzzword
