    For your own personal taste what do you find more satisfying in DnB track, the Drums or the Bass line?

    They have to work together to make the tune what it is IMO.

    I like screechy noises and snares that are just shaped white noise because sub bass is for queers and reggae fans.

    and don't get me started on fucking "breakbeats" why bother when you can just stick a beefy snare in

    I think it's bass for me, personally.
    If there was a tune where the bass was good and the drums crap, it would bother me though.

    Depends on the song for me, your older Jungly stuff has some fantastic drum work in it, amen madness. Then other tunes you can have a fairly standard DnB pattern, and all the action and vibes is coming from the Bassline. Those dons that get the bass and Drums working as one complimenting each other perfetly, well I like both :)

    Silly Question

    I listen to DnB for the quality discourse surrounding it.
