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)
