    Metalheadz are the label that still deliver consistant top of the range drum n bass..no argument. This year they delivered the two best albums by far and have the best of the best clamering to get on it....From Pulp Fiction to Be True

    I have really liked the direction the DSB seem to be going with there last couple of releases...Shy's gone all intelligent. lol. And yeah, Jay...Lifted is sick!

    All time fave was Protoype...no label, not even Headz, could touch them 8 ish years ago. I mean they bought Bad Company to the world!..the best period in dnb history. I feel sorry for anyone who wasnt out in the clubs around that period when The Nine and Alien Girl were first getting dropped, you severly missed out....................im gonna go cry now...free GROOVE!!! what other label could claim to release that many amazing tunes in only a few years....

    That was the era of gold...trust...Hardware and Prorotype around 99 ..wow!

    i'm really feeling what concord dawn have been putting out on uprising recently. can't wait for state of minds new self titled label to drop. moving fusions label drum culture is looking good as well. and the classic subtitles label does it for me nearly every time. i agree with jay about lifted, it's gonna be the label to watch over the next couple of years. and god bless moving shadow*

    Ram, Hospital, CIA, SOUL:R & its offspring, and finally all of the Playaz camp lables (Frontline, Liqweed, Ganja-Tek). Also some newer lables such as NAM Musik are gonna be big in 2008.:jackson:

    93-96 Reinforced
    95-99 Metalheadz
    97-01 Virus/Metro
    93-01 V Recordings
    94-00 Full Cycle
    95-00 Ram Records
    96-00 True Playaz
    94-01 Prototype
    01--- Bassbin
    00-02 Function
    ----- Planet Mu
    93-01 Moving Shadow
    96-08 Emotif/No-U Turn/Nu Black
    96-00 Dread
    ------ Skull Disco
    92-96 Dee Jay/Lucky Spin

    Apart from these, I tend to pick and choose depending on the tunes/artist. Mostly now I buy stuff from smaller labels, as I think that most of the bigger labels (Ram, Full Cycle e.t.c) have lost their way somewhat.
