Hi! For nearly 2 years I haven't really listened to DnB let alone be up do date with all the releases etc. Pretty much last thing I got was the Critical's Underground Sonics LP. It's been a busy 2 years for me - graduated school, got a job in a law firm and had a long term girlfriend. Listened to all kinds of different music, something around hundred or so albums of pop, rock, metal, hip-hop music - basically whatever Pitchfork recommended. Now it's back to Drum & Bass. Just yesterday I was listening to Current Value's Critical Podcast and I want to hop back on the train - maybe not start mixing again just yet, but to just have a general idea of what's been happening since I "left". I mean if CV is on Critical, things have really changed. So, it would be awesome if you could tell me some of the more important events/news in the dnb scene - Somebody hit someone? Somebody broke up? Something in this forum? Are there any awesome new dj-s/producers in the scene? New labels? Is vinyl STILL alive? Some other trends in mixing? I will check out stuff from main labels myself of course. Also this thread doesn't just have to be about me and my need for information, it would be also nice if you can post your opinion about e.g. in which direction is DnB going or what are the main checkpoints that have happened in couple of years. Is the scene rather strong or getting weaker? Please share your thoughts.
