    hey. i needed to ask a big dnb fan something and i guessed this forum probably is the best place.

    i really like the heavy type of dnb.
    stuff like nero n stuff.

    but everytime i go out to buy a compilation, its all the mellow/relaxing stuff.

    i figured maybe its called a different genre or sumfin.

    so can anyone tell me what heavy drum n bass is called?
    or at least a good cd to buy with some on.

    (i bought 'the worlds heaviest drum n bass' 3 disc compilation a while ago and theres about 3 songs that i like...)

    cheers.

    well there are branches darkstep, neurofunk, techstep that i know

    to mention a few artists check evol intent, current value, counterstrike, hive, gridlok, optiv, audio etc.

    i would advice welcome to violence by violence recordings, evol intent's last album and endangered species (i think the 3 ep are gathered in one cd) by black sun empire recordings.

    Right..... did you mean Nero.... the artist????

    That would be a sub-genre called "Jump-UP" Which is very popular at the mo.

    but if you meant the sub genre of DNB called "Neuro" then you should be looking for peopleon the cd like Prolix, Black Sun Empire, Bulletproof, Chris Su, Rusher..... and so on. But those are just a few.


    Hope that helps mate

    thanks for the replies guys.

    my fave songs are:
    Capone - Tudor Rose (Shimon Remix)
    Drumsound and Bassline Smith - Cold Turkey
    and EZ Rollers - Crowd Rocker


    is this like the dark tech/neuro genre then?

    cheers

    Most popular compilations are liquid funk (vocals, light vibes, I love you, we love the world, my heart will go on, ecstacy with broken beats) or jumpup (I and I jump up massive kru with the big up, big up, sounds like hiphop on coke).

    If you want the harder stuff you prefer, then you need to do a bit of searching. Not many compilations but plenty of mixes available on this site and others. Just look for Ed Rush, Noisia, Black Sun Empire, Spor, Evol Intent, Limewax...

    Look mate, take a listen to the sets in the mixes section.

    Some of them are pure jump up, some are neuro/techstep. The first has basslines that go wobble wobble wobbly wobble. The second category has basslines that sound like chainsaws.

    The ones with people singing songs about love are liquid funk. The ones with jamaicans singing about ganja are mostly ragga jungle, though they are sometimes jump up. The ones with mcs singing bollocks are again jump up.


    If you like all of them, then big up to you!

    They're pretty distinct styles.
