    What do you prefer, what get's your goat, what grabs you by the nuts... or tits if you're a feminine type.

    I've always prefered the tracks with choppy breaks rather than just a whoompin bline and for me it started with tracks like Terminator by Goldie... maybe that's what I think is lacking from DnB today. Don't get me wrong I still eat, sleep and shit DnB i just want other peepsies onions or opinions maybe...

    Tell me.....

    I love chopped up amens and complicated jungle patterns... i definatley think dnb is lacking this these days... I love old jungle tracks with woahing basslines

    I do think the standard Boom chap chiga chiga boom chap is getting pretty standard definately needs spicing up

    Hellz yea! Put me in front of that bass speaker with a fat spliff and I'm in heaven! Bass'll never hurt your ears no matter how loud. Sucks you can't smoke in most clubs anymore. Now I gotta go outside and miss the tunes :(

    Can't have one without the other. Plus I like fucked up drums and ripping basslines, varying between tracks. I pity the fool that thinks otherwise, or else they're missing out on a lot of good music.
