    Hello everyone !! :)
    First of all I wish to say hello to all of you on this forum.
    I'm more into deep house, tech house and techno style but sometimes I love to listen to dnb so I need you to help me with all classics of drum and bass. I will be looking for vinyl only. Due to fact that some of them will not be available on vinyl please not that tunes can't be older than 8 years....

    You're looking for classics, but nothing that was released earlier than 2005?

    Wut?

    Chase & Status - Take Me Away or Music Club
    Noisia & The Upbeats - Dustup
    Audio - Headroom

    Dup Phizix - Marka
    Pendulum - Vault
    DJ Hazard - Mr Happy
    Spor - Aztec or Kingdom
    Loadstar - Link To The Past

    Some of them aren't really classics but they get played a lot. If you are looking for true classics, you'll have to go a bit further back than 2005 to tunes like Pulp Fiction and Quest etc.

    Well let's do then tracks that been played many times and tracks that you really wish to hear even in few years made after 2005. Reason why I want tunes made after 2005 is because I will be looking for vinyl so I have better chance to get good condition vinyl. Thanks for tunes so far

    I wasn't expecting so good response to my question but I have to say I'm well impressed. Some of this tunes smell commercial but most of them are really good. Already some of them I found on vinyl. Keep them coming chaps. I wanna see all good things what are in your heads ;)

    some if not ALL the best drum and bass was made before 2005. to rule it out would just be idiotic.
    here's why...

    bad company - the nine / pulse / planet dust / the voice / 4 days

    ed rush & optical - wormhole / funktion / alien girl / gas mask / sick note / watermelon

    i rest my case.

    This thread is made by someone who has openly said they don't know much dnb, asking for recommendations for classics. Presumably wanting a wide spectrum to sample from. So how's about instead of giving your personal preference to people who despite not giving a shit, already know what you like, you actually contribute and suggest some tunes.
