hey there! this is my first post. i've been listening to dnb lately and i really really want to get into it, i just dont know where to start. i've been listening to a few artists. B-Complex, high contrast etc. and its ok, but recently i heard Sucker Punch by Unknown error and i was amazed! thats exactly what i was looking for.
so, can you guys recommend me some good DnB? also what are like the BEST dnb artists, i mean, the artists every dnb listener MUST have
thankyou in advance!

theres no answer to that because everybody has a different tastes theres no universal you must like this dnb artist.

Its like saying the artists that every rock or hiphop listener MUST have it comes down to personal taste, i probably dont like any of the dnb you listen to.

listen to an andy c mix either live or mix cd
I was having a go about Machete before, but I have to agree. Andy C's live sets are a surprisingly good starting place to figuring out what you're looking for.

But Tiesticles' list, for all the flak he gets, is pretty spot on. Not a bad artist amongst them.

There's a Chris SU b2b Mindscape set aswell from earlier this year which is firing. All those European guys are making some of the best D&B at the moment in my opinion

Hey great stuff, thanks! i've been listening some of it, but after the Tiesticle's list i still have a long road ahead ;)

Its like saying the artists that every rock or hiphop listener MUST have it comes down to personal taste, i probably dont like any of the dnb you listen to
yeah mate, of course i know it comes down to personal taste, but every metalhead, even if its the most true-blackmetal fan, knows that Metallica shaped the metal as we know it these days or venom etc.

i'm aware that the 90's were like the best decade for dnb, i'd appreciate if you can give me some artists, the ones that made the Dnb scene so great in the past decade, thanks!
p.s. sorry about my english, i don't come from an english-speaking country, doesn't matter, music is the purest way of expression
