    What is your opinion of jump up this year?

    I haven't really been a huge fan as it all sounds so similar, and sounds like the producers just recycle their own sounds.

    Thoughts?

    Maybe it's just my age! I'm loving the tech/liquid sounds more than ever, and i've always followed that side of the scene!

    Arghhh, this year has been pretty sub standard really i reckon. I do love a bit of jump up, every now and then i'll get a craving for it and spend 3 hours on the decks rinsing the classics, very rarely listen to recent jump up though.

    I think jump-up is more alive than couple of years ago. There are alot of upcoming producers with their very own unique sounds and styles.

    On the otherhand , there is also alot of crap jump-up. But, there's also alot of crap dubstep. And crap rock. So...

    Havn't bothered to listen to it at all really this year. Grabbed the occasional bit, only really from Sub Zero, OS's Move EP and new Hazard, thats about it though. Too much of a mission finding new jump up producers as there is so much bollocks to sift through, so i gave up with it essentially

    Good dnb is good dnb, jump up falls under the category of dnb, so if its good I'll play it. Loads of good stuff this year, check all Tyke material

    Konichi - Tools of The Trade EP
    Sub Zero - Bi-Polar EP
    Hazard - Never The Same EP
    Taxman - Cool it Judy / Megadeth
    Decimal Bass - Foundation

    My top picks of this year on the jump up flex, heck even Break - Rare Earth was on the jump up tip.

    pretty much this and never the same ep. need time tripping too.

    the thing with konichi tunes its they are easy to mix with heavy steppy tunes which makes them diverse imo
