    I'm new to DJ'ing and so far only have like 4 records... When i say new i mean like.. this week D:

    I was on HTFR and they sell these vinyl packs and i just wondered if anyone has bought any? And if you have which one/s should i go for?

    http://www.htfr.com/bargain-packs/?orderby=catno&instock=0&genre=drum+'n'+bass&view=gallery

    Thats all the drum and bass ones...

    So if anyone knows any of these labels or has bought any.. Give me some reccomendations? xD

    Favourite artists atm.. Break/Spor/erb N dub :)

    Thanks.

    (Not sure if this is the right section btw but i suppose it could be useful to other people as well.)

    all the packs are from decent labels man, its jus looking into what kind of dnb ya lookin to mix, look at the labels and then search for em and have a listen, the zombie one will be more jump up n wobble, the V-Recs will be more deeper sound, bit o liquid maybe. and ya prob lookin at more jungle on moving shadow, jus ave a listen n see what ys like bro...its the only way.

    theyll be shit mate. best to get 6 records you actually like. I bought a record pack when i first started mixing and it was a major school boy error. its packs of the shittest records that they cant shift.

    Sorry i forgot to post.. Cba writing a track listing lol but i was really impressed with this.

    Some really nice and mellow tunes with a mixture of heavy as fuck tunes with quality basslines. No massive artists but really impressed, would recommend to anyone starting out or just looking to boost their collection :)
