    he has stacks of albums 8 or 9 I think.

    Love Overflow. Great LP.
    Even If is a more recent LP. Still vibes...Steptoe, Manchester nights are great tunes.
    And check his self titled LP Dominic Martin. Not DNB but beautiful production

    Some of Calibres best stuff for me came out on singles.

    Personally I'd sit through his whole discography, listen to all his releases and I don't think you will be disappointed one bit.

    'Second Sun' is my favourite Calibre album, also worth checking as your new to his beats is the two 'Shelflife' LPs. The Shelflife LP's have a mix of his tunes, old and new (technically all old now, as the albums were released in 2009)

    I'm 5 tracks into overflow and oh my, he's definitely a genius.

    I think that its gunna have to happen. Definately would have heard a lot more of his stuff had I made dnb the lifestyle it is now a little sooner, really up to date with the current scene, but slacking a lot when it comes to older stuff :/

    Deffo go for those LPs I suggested man, sounds like you on the right track with the recent stuff.

    If you get chance to catch a Calibre set do so, one of my all time favourite DJs. Best set I heard was at a V Recordings night I think @ The End, to top that set off Stamina was mcing :)

    The more I know about drum and bass, the more I like Calibre.

    second sun is definitely his best LP as said already.. overflow close second for me!

    as for EPs, my favourite is probably the judgement day EP on samurai, one of the few EPs where I rate every tune on it

    favourite tunes would be: thoughtless, mr maverick/highlander, life, all the while, alone in a crowd ETC ETC ETC

    yeah pretty much all of his work is stellar

    You should defently do what Wayne said and listen to the mistical stuff.. Their album which came out on soul r is legendary
