    At the moment were heading through a good time in d&B music with artists & labels shooting up faster than a junkie with an endless supply, who's your tips as best newcomer, best new label, or those artists & labels who have worked hard for years & you feel they should be gettinga hell of alot more props then they do at the mo.

    Mine go as follows:
    Amit - Showing us percussion can be the most effective use of rhythm.
    Hold Tight - Think they've done some outstanding tunes for the TOV camp & can't wait for the new stuff.
    Break - Been doing it for a while & will blow up this year.
    Bad Ace - The man doen't know his own talent (well he does but he likes to think he doesn't) :razz:
    Bulletproof - Dutty tech masters
    Critical Records -Just check out the back catalogue you'll find some fine examples of d&b.

    Definately agree about Critical, Sayber! One of the most criminally underrated labels in the scene imo

    My tips for the top are:
    Garon - doing it for the dancefloor massive.
    Mumblz - Dark as a mo-fo, with more force than a army of stampeedin elephants!
    Gpk - Yall know the deezy!
    Diode - a variety of dancefloor an darkside, with a twist of trance n bass, mmmm, sweet!

    An if im not mistaken, all of these are from the good ol U S of A.

    Couldnt post my tips without mentioning Badman Aceino - ive been tippin this geez for time now, the dapper don imo, un-faultable! :piss:

    I'm gonna mention Amit again, his sound was developing so well last year, later this year, it'll be interesting to see what he brings out.

    Nu-tone, Cyantific and Logistics - These guys, every release, BOOOOOOOM!!!!!

    Bad Ace Motherfuckin Inc! - Come on ma son! Latest one is absolutely stomping mate.

    Skitty - looking forward to hearing more from him
    Calibre - can't wait for the lp to drop
    Amit - everyone already mentioned him but love his vibes and attention to detail (reminds me of source direct)
    Breakage - Amen master
    Logistic - Burial remix and many more
    Q-Project - After a very scary injury returned to make even better music (greatest thing, urban decay)
    Miracle, TC, Heist, Craggz and Parrallel Forces - Dillinja and Lemon D have brought to light some serious talent
    Tactile crew - Hungarian badmen
    Calyx - two words.....True Identity
