    How are you all? I'm a total d'n'b noob. I'm a Hip Hop producer and today while digging through records I found this dope break and it got me thinking.

    I wanna up my d'n'b knowledge, it's a dope type of music with crazy energy.

    I just copped Pendulum - Hold Your Colour, I'm liking it so far.

    Any other recommendations?

    welcome to the site mate, you may get some stick about that album, lol.


    Check out our radio station (in my sig) got plenty of DnB on. You into heavy dark stuff? or prefer liquid beats?

    I think I like the darker stuff, what's wrong with Pendulum? I'm guessing it's more mainstream ey. There was this one track that I was really feeling.

    Pendulum - Tarantula (Pendulum vs Fresh ft Spyda & Tenor Fly)

    I haven't actually bought anything, just downloading stuff at the moment. Eventually when I know what I like I'll go out and buy the cds.

    Right now I'm listening to this compilation mixed by Shy FX, it's fair dope. Alot of different cats on this shit.

    Safe man, welcome to the site.

    What kinda beats you produce? I'm far more interested in Hip Hop than DnB. I've made a few beats too.

    Mate, I'm loving the first one. Quality beat. Loving the whole feel of it.

    The second one if even better man.

    How long you been producing and what you using?

    Both beats are pretty good man, I'm liking the second one a bit more though but good job especially if you've only beein doing it for 5 months

    I've been at it for like 3 years now but I've only been taking it seriously for 1, I'm an emcee and that's what got me into making beats coz I couldn't afford to buy them

    This is a picture of my setup:

    I mainly use FL Studio 8 and Pro Tools 7.4 M-Powered.
