    Now, I am sure this is going to get a few posts going as it is a very individually opinionated subject.

    I am new to djing, like totally new, you may refer to me as the noob, the Rookie or any other name you can think of for a beginner dj and I won’t be offended, in fact, I might save that one for another thread.

    But anyway, my fellow dj's, my tastes in DnB lie somewhere between 1994 and 1997.

    I realise that this time has now gone and I am surprised as to how much DnB has evolved since I last went to a Rave Up.

    The Question I am leading up to is this,

    What tunes should any self respecting DnB Dj have in their record box?

    What classics have I missed, what tunes should I get, who knows, maybe you missed one yourself?

    Fire away guys!

    Thanks Man, I have heard some of these before, I must say, i was looking through a mates record box, and he had that third degree by friction. I thought i was called third degree burns, but when i read it properly i luaghed for hours....like so bad i was nearly crying....Quality.

    I am liking Mampi Swift - The One, thats some dark tunes your into my freind. seems to be the way DnB has gone now. Many Thanks for you reccomendations.

    no probs mate,if you love trick of technology check out delikut beats by them as well another huge tune from bk then and 1 of my personal faves by them to.

    ps:if you want to get a lot of old classics then this websitewww.discogs.com is better than ebay,in my experience they have more rare tunes.

    Thanks man,

    I feel sick, i had loads of these tunes years ago and sold them when i sold my first set of decks. I paid like £5 each for them at the time, and now the same records are going for £20's a shot.

    Any more modern day classics i need to know about, i think i am gonna start adding new flavours to my collection.

    Any reccomendations would be apreachiated.

    Cheers guys,

    Matty_C
