    A few tunes that I feel were groundbreaking.

    Doc Scott - Shadowboxing - 31 Records - 1996
    DJ Trace - The Mutant Revisited - Emotif - 1996
    Optical - The End Part 1 - 31 Records - 1997

    All 3 tracks raised eyebrows within parts of the D&B community at the time because they were different. I remember mixing Shadowboxing into Mutant Revisited and my mate said "Why are you playing this shit?" lol

    Which artists would you pick as groundbreaking IN current DnB?

    Darren White is the groundbreaker for me at the moment. Taking Drum and Bass full circle and stripping it down to the bare elements.

    s.p.y for sure. he's comfortable making both soulful stuff and then switching to heavier, darker tunes.

    Classic:
    LTJ Buekm – Atlantis (still get shivers from this one!)
    Krust – Warhead
    Alex Reece – Pulp Fiction
    Bad Company – The Nine



    I would say Lynx, D Bridge and Breakge are the recent ground breakers.

    Because that it my answer for everything these days because it is that damn good.

    yeah turbulance is a banging tune, theres no doubt about it.
    but when it came out nobody was saying moving fusion were ground breaking because of it!

    groundbreaker - pioneer: someone who helps to open up a new line of research or technology or art
