    www.raggabot.com had loadsa sets to DL

    It's the site of ERS-1 and crew, badboy LA DJ producers making new skool ragga / jungle / dancehall. Some of it's a bit hectic, but I lurve it.

    They cost though.

    I just want a few links to a few sample tracks to see if I like this type of drum and bass

    try that, I think you can D/l off there. They had been for free previously on the main site.

    & search the mixes section on here, regularly ppl post up mixes in these style.

    Some? Its a frigging part of the tradition and history... kids these days...

    If you mean modern dnb, Digital Soundboy, Ganja, Congo Natty and plenty of others.

    Plus the ragga jungle producers but these guys, mostly from Germany and Canada don't believe they're making dnb - they're wrong BTW.

    init jungle was drawn from reggae and dub, im guessing its where the word dubplate came from aswell.

    check out any kenny ken sets, most of his sets since way back have that kinda feel. And I mean try any set from any time, havn't heard anything from him this year actualy but im sure it would have a similar vibe.

    I like the music but they're a bit of a strange lot, all in a panic that their 'genre' of music is dying, without realising that they're part of the much larger dnb scene...
