    bit of both really always like hearing tracks that make you stand still and think "what the fuck is that" but at the same time old tunes can get just as much appreciation

    It's all about digging deep alongside the new beats, bring back some good memories. I always prefer to play a lot of stuff that most people might not have heard, it's a nice feeling :)

    I like a DJ who plays across the board, simple as. Try and cover all styles and not to be afraid to delve into the past for some classics. I thought you off all people would agree on that voice bro, who doesn't like a bit of nostalgia. Obviously when you go out you want to hear the freshest dubs from all the top labels, don't get me wrong. Doesn't really relate to the thread title, but personally I can't stand stiff DJ's that just stand there are play records. So uninspiring. Marky is a prime example of someone who I always love to see djing becuase he plays to the crowd and really enjoys it.

    it's not the same, it just sounds the same* even the producers who last year i thought were pushing boundaries have all now settled into a rythym of producing similar sounding tracks. that's reason 3 why i've stopped buying vinyl.

    I'll tell you why voice, are you ready, you will be gobsmacked when I say this.....









    Jump Up has NO diversity. It's all too similar. It's true, even if I get shit for saying this, it's absolutely true. How many hundreds of new producers are making jump up? Beacuse it's so easy to make. Deep and liquid is very well constructed and thought out, produced from the heart. I'm not saying jump up isn't well produced, it very much is, but the ideas are all too similar.

    "womp womp wobbahwobbah woooomp" :rolleyes:

    i can see where your coming from but that's like saying techstep is just ball bearings in a washing machine or liquid is only for background music

    it doesnt help that alot of djs just mix the last 20 tunes added to their collection, so most sub genres end up sounding too similar

    Diversity is the key. We like to put a variation of old and new in our sets. Old stuff is good to drop for nostalgia reasons, plus it shows a new generation of heads who may not have been into D&B when these old tracks was doing the rounds. I have had people say to me "Thanks for dropping that tune in your mix. I've never heard of it before, now i'm going to go out and buy it". Its certainly a positive effect for our scene.
    New stuff is always good to throw in the mix as well because it's going to appeal to aspiring DJ's, ravers and the chinstrokers. Plus, its nice to bring something fresh to the table.

    For the majority of people, jump-up is a gateway genre. Much like cannabis is a gateway drug.

    To be honest with you mate i think your just moaning for the sake of it. You obviously dont like jump up, therefore you dont listen to it with as much passion as you would with "deep and liquid". And if you ask me liquid is much more repetitive than jump up.

    Also, perhaps new producers make jump up because its what they like? I know i wouldnt make music that i dont like because its easy.

    oh yea and you talk about jump up having no diversity. Then insult everything that jump up is. Now thats not very diverse is it?

    Thats a very bold statement to make. But different strokes for different folks.
