    Hi i am in the process of buying a set of turntables and am wondering what drum and bass vinyls would be good to learn with or could i go out and get any selection of drum and bass vinyls and just start practicing with them?

    Thanks

    Just buy tunes you like, although it helps at first if you get a few that start on a kick drum (rather than a pad or something), with a nice long intro, like the ones below:

    Taxman - Scan Darker
    Original Sin - Don't Be Silly
    Q-Project - Credit Crunch
    Sub Focus - Airplane
    Break - Submerged (Calyx & Teebee Remix)
    Calibre - Fire & Water/Interphaze

    Buy some nice rollers. Check out anything on Shogun Audio or stuff by Break, Spectrasoul, Calibre or Alix Perez. Sub Focus tunes are also nice n easy to mix.

    I would have to say jump up mate,

    Just look for anything with a drum beat for the whole intro, get a couple of tunes by the same artist, generally pretty similar and similar speed so easier to mix just to practise locking the beats.

    But you would play it for a frame, get bored, and stop mixing?

    Possibly the easiest tune to produce ever lol

    GANJA..all the same speed. I helped my friend get the basic understanding of it all by having him mix Original Sin's "Say/All I Want" b2b with "Don't Be Silly/Cheater Cheater" over and over.

    Same with Propaganda UK to my understanding...
