    i m workin on puttin drumm n bass and hip hop together in a full on mixt up set .
    is anyone else doin the same thing and what have they discovered works well...

    its hard man and you dont have much flexibilty for doin stuff

    and the beats can sound really masht up!!

    jurrasic 5 quality control goes well with a lot of stuff and ms dynamite goes well wwith old slow shit like pulp fiction etc.
    as well as eminem goes with most shit but sounds a bit naff
    none of my good hip hop(rodney p, full life cypher, skitz, fallacy etc) goes with anything at all

    im tryin to do a long set like 2 hrs and break it down and bring it back up again but my hip hop is limited and i cant find no uk hip hop (the best) which goes with drum n bass at all dam it
    but ill carry on anyhow

    Yo!
    Try the "deep concetration" series on Ohm rec.
    These are turtabalism hip hop compilations and some of the tracks have a few "doubletime" brakes in em, so its much easier to mix with DnB..ta

    yeah man definately cos im all bout the mixin.
    i love seein broken up sets with hip hop sections in and shit.

    obviously you'd have to select the right night to play the sets at cos hardened dnb heads might get a bit confused when they are gurnin their nuts off!!!


    yeah slow hip hop man goes wikkid with dnb, NWA mfuck the police for example which i bought for a tena the other day .

    check that new tune on plastic surgery part 4 i think its called "mirage" on hospital records.
    it has some hip hop intro to it and then goes into dnb breaks which i think would provide a good transition in such a set

    Dj Kalm + Citizen feat. Adam M - 'Mirage' on Plastic Surgery 4 pt 2.

    Soul Providers - 'Club Night' is another track that's DnB but with a hip hop break in the middle, really good MCing on it.:D

    Also, I've tried Cypress Hill - 'Hits from the Bong' over Aphrodite - 'Stalker', it works but you have to get the timing fucking spot on. :slayer:

    if it's good hip hop, and especially for the humour side of it, hip hop + d&b = yes please.

    I'm all for breakin genre barriers if it's good. good music is good music eh
