    anything on hospital, inside recs. critical recs, SGN:LTD, good looking recs and CIA to name a few. im not really into that side of things so dont take this as an extensive list.
    check out mixes by CONTROLLER for some spot on mixes.

    With the artists you say you like, look at the releases from Labels like Hospital, Spearhead & Overflow

    High contrast, logistics, cyantific, CLS & Wax & Nu:tone are all on hospital records, so go for a EP from them such as:

    Weapons Of Mass Creation 3

    A. Hard-Fi - Hard To Beat (London Elektricity Remix)
    B. Cyantific - Space Station Kru
    C. A-Sides - Crabs In A Bucket
    D. Sonic - Electrosound
    E. CLS - Their Names Were Trot & Melon
    F. Danny Byrd - Under The Sea

    or

    Future sound of cambridge 2

    A. The Cambridge Four - When Pilots Eject
    B. Nu:Tone - The Boy Who Lost His Smile
    C. Logistics - Never Ending Story
    D. Commix - Scarlet


    Got both of these EP and they won't dissappoint

    Go to a record shop and just listen to loads of stuff (well, if it is not busy...and the table is free)

    Don't buy too many to start off with (unless you have a lot of money to spend), just get a few each week or two and practise on those :)

    Hunt around mate, that's where you'll find the real jems, and be able to play tunes no one else has.

    I found some old London Elektricity records for 50p in a tiny jazz store with no proper lights so they had candles everywhere lol

    A few artists you should check out that I reckon you'll like:

    Metrik
    Break
    Brookes Brothers

    Some labels: Critical, Horizons, Signature, Soul:R, MedSchool (which is a sub label of Hopsital - slightly more experimental)
