    This is a bit of a troll, but I'm bored so I'm going to post anyway:

    How many artists do you actually know, properly? By 'know' I mean you know at least 30% of all the music they've released: more than just 1 album or EP.

    I reckon for me there are only 6-8 artists that this is true for me, but only 2 or 3 of them are electronic (depending on whether I count squarepusher or not)
    Billain, Burial, Squarepusher, Adele, Coldplay, Pink Floyd, and maybe the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Arctic Monkeys.

    I'm not a real dnb fan I know (I'm only on here for the production tips :D) : but how many do you know?

    You only know 30% of 6 to 8 artists' material? Really? ....seriously?

    I know more than 30% of more than 90% of artists in my collection, but have only really picked up between 70% & 90% of their work

    None

    There aren't really any artists that I obsess over and seeing as I don't DJ or collect vinyl I don't really have much interest making a note of releases

    30% of half a lemon makes one hell of a lemon drizzle cake

    I just love percentages.

    so 30% of 6-8, lets say 7

    30% of 7
    7/100=0.07
    0.07x30=2.1

    So 30% of 7 is 2.1

    So op knows 2.1% LOL

    It's probably harder than you think...

    Take DLR: soundcloud says he's got 36 tunes, so to know DLR you need to know 9 DLR tunes.

    Noisia have made 156 tunes, so to know Noisia you'd need to know 47 tunes. I don't know 47 Noisia tunes: is that that bad?

    Yes it is. But you can compensate this by knowing 87,345% of bieber's songs.
