    Got the Bop tune on vinyl - song about my dog... its actually quite fun to mix, and its long intro outros are melodic and go great with some other liquid tunes.

    I was just wondering who else is feeling this side of dnb?

    Also, what other producers do you know that make tunes of this style?

    I have trawled through medschool and have tons of their stuff, just wondering about others beyond this.

    Good to listen to, but if I wanna mix I wanna mix the kinda tunes I could drop on a dancefloor, and for me this just wouldn't work

    Talented producer though

    I am a straight up bedroom dj, and at any bbq's me and my mates may have... so it brings a good vibe.

    I also think that mixing strictly dancefloor will limit the amount of tunes you can play.

    So you play sets at bashments then?

    I know them, but I guess wouldn't think they follow this style.

    He has elements of richard e james aphex in him.

    I just hope to find more bop stuff then to be honest, as he seems to hold a uniqueness that is rare these days... either that or it is hard to find stuff of this ilk.

    Im open for a listen, so posting some tunes would be much appreciated.

    This tune is terrible... it sounds like it's produced on a casio keyboard

    I really like his song about my dog thune, although I can't say i'd be dancing around alot if it came on at a club or something. Good to chill out to. Yeah, apparently there's an EP coming out in the summer, which will be good - summery tracks for summery weather!

    not at all mate... there is a lot of production value in this.

    just because he doesn't loop everything (which is a lot easier to do) and it goes off key doesn't make it bad. it adds value i think.

    i always have time for tunes like this, sure its not best on a dancefloor, but after 5 years or so of going out to bashments i just wanna chill sometimes.
