    Word! :word:

    I dont think of it as jumping on the band wagon at all... It just shows how Drum & Bass is getting bigger and bigger!

    IMO.

    I laughed at Ganja for setting up Liquid Ganja.

    There is a bandwagon (especially for liquid) but Ganja is a bit late for the step wagon, about 6 years I'd say.

    Mwahahaha.

    It appears to me that sub genres have become necessary evil. I know a lot of people try to avoid pigeon holing, but as a genre grows there have to be ways of describing any spin off or sub genre. House music or dance is no longer one style any more, theres hard house, acid house, deep house, progressive house, tribal house, funky house etc etc. Therefore house is just label to categorize an expanding form of music. The same can be said for hiphop/rap and its sub genres and trance and techno. It was only a matter of time before drum&bass was no longer definative enough to categorize one form of music. Drum&bass producers are taking influences from other forms of music and trying different production methods, therefore getting a new sound from drum&bass. I do believe that pigeon holing gets to the extremes when a form of music that crosses several musical styles or genres gets called "Crossover".

    In my opinion this is good. I like change and like to hear what new sounds are coming out of the music world.

    Can someone post a list of the current sub-genres of dnb and the most prominent producers.

    Just noticed Hype calling "what we like a lof of" Drum & Bass / Jungle.

    Can't standing it being divided into dnb vs jungle and Hype is about as back in the day and authoratitive as you can get.

    I agree with Hype, i like to think i play abit of everything apart from liquid but it does piss me off about these sub generes. A few months back someone was speaking to me about what tracks i was feeling and he come up with, "O,i didnt think you liked neuro-funk?" i was like hey?? 1st of all i thought it was a tech tune and thought, were the fuck has this name come from and 2nd was, as i explained to him that DnB is DnB, you like some tracks you dont like some tracks, all personal preference and you cant pigeon hole that, thats what dnb has always been.
    As for Ganja-Tek, bring it on!

    As far as I know Hype is one of the big lads who doesn't screw his artists. So Fairplay. I agree with the all styles.. I don't care what you call it , its all emotions. and if I was angry all the time would ya notice n e more ???
    As for some of the other big names, it is common knowledge some have properly screwed up and coming artists by way of restrictive contracts and/or holding back their tunes and them. SO watch out up and coming producers, don't bend over just cos you get told to, and READ THE CONTRACT B4 U SIGN...u'd think it was obvious.....but..hey there ya go.

    i like to think of jungle & DnB different. DnB is more simplistic, jungle has intricate drum patterns.

    Its evolution! times change and people change, stick to what you like and let it go the way it goes, everything happens for a reason!

    And im liking the idea, i continue to hold my salute high to you Hype! respect.

    ^ nah, i know, none of the big players do, pretty dumb i reckon, I remember shy fx sayin' DnB and jungle is the same, it just really isn't, they're different. Jungle is an early form of DnB, i wish it was still around to be honest. I loved the ragga inlfuences (wheres that in modern DnB? apart from a few samples here and there, only record label i can think of is rude bwoy plastic).

    I think it'll be hard to cash in on tech as it's not popular enough. Liquid was in the limelight recently but tech hasn't been for ages.

    If anything it'll bring attention to the tech scene and be good for everyone.

    One thing about True Playaz- they're bloody expensive. The mp3 and ringtone prices... ow.

    (not that I have or will ever buy a ringtone because I know how to use sound editing software and bluetooth)
