    Similar to my essential dBridge topic... the only calibre vinyl i've got is Thoughtless/Trip It and I love it so i'm looking to buy more.

    Quite frankly the amount of tunes on his discogs page intimidates me so I was just wondering what everyones favorite Calibre tunes are?

    "mr. maverick"/"highlander" - such a heavy release, both sides are fire. "drop it down" of course, and it further agreement with scotty, "fire and water". "second sun" also. "mr majestic". i could go on forever. "is it u" as well and his remix of badmarsh and shri "signs"

    A few of my personal favs other than most of the others mentioned...









    Such an incredibly versatile producer. Up there with the best for sure.

    Overreaction is a sick tune.

    Also check out his latest release, Judgement Day EP on Red Seal i think. 'Don't Want Your Love' is amazing

    o_O :mrpanic:

    you only have 1 vinyl of his ?? even tho he has been making fantastic beats for such a long time and is known as a king of liquid funk?? damn man.. you need some catching up..

    just listen to his albums he has released man. im sure there will be loads of his stuff u will like. go onto youtube as well and look up calibre beats. there will be many in the related videos .. and just find the ones u feel.. hope that helps ;)

    I know terrible isn't it... Only been collecting dnb for a couple of years and have tended to buy mainly new stuff but i'm constantly broadening my horizons, this forum helped me discover a lot of good stuff and I spend a lot of time browsing youtube videos and finding new mixes.

    To all who have replied to this thread, cheers for all the suggestions, narrowed it down slightly which will come in handy next time i'm record shopping
