    Hey everyone. So I am fairly new to the DnB scene, but I am lookin to get more into it. So, I ask for some suggestions on where to start, aside from some of the cheesy stuff you hear in most movies.

    So far i have listened to Future Prophecies - Warlords Rising and have enjoyed it for the most part. I browsed the forums a little bit and found this mix http://www.dnbforum.com/showthread.php?t=48643 , so far it is pretty cool. I really like these 2 songs as well

    http://www.dnbshare.com/download/QuadrantandCeasefeatDidiB-RageandRapture.ogg.html
    http://www.dnbshare.com/download/CurrentValue-DarkRain.ogg.html (especially around 3:00)



    I don't know if The Flashbulb counts as DnB, but it definatly has influence from it I think and it's some pretty cool stuff. I don't like stuff that takes itself too seriously, or songs that are way over the top ie. too hard or too much yelling, ect.

    So where is a good place to start? Doesn't have to be all old or all recent. Any suggestions are appreciated :)

    Best bet is probably to download a few mixes and then you'll start getting a sense of the artists/styles you like. Seeing as you're new, your natural reaction will probably be drawn to the ultra-cheese.. then after experiencing dnb for a while, gradually go more into the deeper sounds :teeth:

    One I'd recommend is Futurebound's latest mix. You can d/l it HERE

    Tracklist:
    1. Futurebound & Matrix – Womb – Viper / Metro
    2. Futurebound & Matrix – The Edge – Viper / Metro
    3. The Militia – Let Loose (TC Remix) – Shogun
    >>> Dillinja – Goin In – Test
    4. Subfocus – Triple X – Ram
    5. Clipz feat Hollie G – Ugly – Audio Zoo
    6. Subfocus & Brookes Brothers – Late Run – Ram
    7. Baron – Turn Up The Sun – BBK
    8. Futurebound vs Brookes Brothers – Dawn Treader – BBK
    >>> Hazard – Selector – Ganja
    9. Nu:Tone – System (Matrix & Futurebound remix) – Hospital
    10. Brookes Bothers – Crackdown – Viper
    11. Peshay – Don't Think About Me – Infrared
    12. TC & Subfocus – Borrowed Time VIP – D-Style
    13. Psidream & Pacific – Throwback – Unknown
    >>> Ram Trilogy – Titan – Ram
    14. Shimon & Andy C – Skirmish – Ram
    >>> Roni Size – Snapshot – Full Cycle
    15. Commix – Be True – Metalheadz
    >>> Clipz & Die – Good 'Ol Days – Full Cycle
    16. Shimon & Sanj – Untitled – Audio Porn
    17. Upbeats vs White Stripes – Icky Thump
    >>> Dillinga – In The Grind – Valve
    18. L-Plus – Middle East Sun – Viper
    19. Die & Clipz – Back Inside – Clear Skyz
    >>> Baron – Red Head – Virus
    20. Chase & Status – Judgement – Ram
    21. C4C – Sleeper Cell – C4C
    22. TC – Driver – D-Style
    23. J-Majik & Wickaman – Fleshwound (G-Dub Remix) – Viper
    24. Shock One – Untitled (Under mi Sensei) – Viper
    25. Hive – Neo (2008 remix) – Violence
    >>> Icicle & Nympho – Franky Mountain – Ram
    26. Die – Dirty Games (G-Dub remix) – Chronic
    27. Subfocus – Timewarp – Ram
    >>> Fresh – Foreigner – BBK

    I got a chance to listen to that mix. Overall it was alright. Some parts i liked, some not so much. Havent had time to listen to much else, getting ready to move soon.

    So maybe DnB is what I suspected it to be all along, I will like parts of it, but not all. However one of these days I need to actually go to a rave.. I've been meaning to do that for awhile.


    EDIT: Btw, what exactly is liquid? I have heard the term for a long time now but never knew what it meant.
