    Hey all,

    For New Years eve my friends and I are hosting a 2 day party with around 150 people and trying to incorporate some DnB sets into the mix.
    Our friends are into DnB but not heavily into it so I'm looking for some idea's on tunes that I could incorporate into my set. As in, nothing too heavy... more vocal-ly, melodic, bass-ey tunes/anthems that the girls and non DnB heads would enjoy. The set goes for an hour - hour and a half at 1am (so not too heavy but proper danc-ey also).

    Some examples of tunes I'm currently incorporating (to give you an idea of the sorts of tunes I'd be after):

    Wilkinson - Afterglow
    Wilkinson - Tonight
    Wilkinson - Heatwave
    Wilkinson - Crunch
    Logistics - Cosmonaught
    Logistics - Kaleidescope
    London Elecktricity - Just One Second
    Smooth - Calling
    TC - Warcry

    Hope that makes it clear what I'm after.

    Thanks in advance.

    You are looking for poppy dnb. Shouldn't be too hard to find...


    Definitely try Hospital records and a lot of the newer Ram stuff. Chase and status have a new album oh wait its not even dnb. Try Subfocus new album

    Thanks Dagz appreciate the response.

    Yeah I've been scouring all the Hospital mixes but I guess I was checking with peeps as to any 'stand-out' pop DnB songs? Doesn't have to be recent either.
    I guess Wilkinson - Afterglow is a good guide of what I'm after.

    Take a look at some Shogun Audio stuff too.. Alix Perez, The Prototypes, Spectra Soul, Technimatic, etc. I think you'll like the sound of them.
