    Your Having A Fukin BUBBLE!....any way all i was wondering is if dnb was rated over in the states and from seeing your comments it seems that this is the case, im not going to carry on having a slaggin match coz really its just pointless and pathetic. PERIOD!

    yes, to answer your question Dnb (and all other genres of techno) are alive and have been alive for a LONG time.

    Im sorry Daft & Matty if you think im being sarcastic. Although, i was not! The question asked was a good one. i guess, and maybe you think i should have answered it straight up. Did you know next to user names it says where the user is located in the world. Ireland, USA, Brazil and yes UK to name a few. Evol intent, Hive, Gridlok just to name a few are from the states! had you been a huge Dnb fan maybe you would have known that? ahh well, any other questions then?

    It not really any different, Drum and Bass is worldwide, the big heads we have here are the heads over in the States., Canada and so on. Apart from if they are from that particular country they are bigger like Pendulum in Austrailia. I wonder if there are any

    Yeah, DnB has been going strong here in DC for quite some time. I first got into it back in '94. It is not as popular as say, house or electro, but we have a strong community who are absolutely rabid about it.
