I have been interested in electronic music for about 3 years. I was introduced to the music genera by none other than Fat Boy Slim, and gradually I have found the type of electronic music that pleases me. I currently listen to trance artists like, BT and DJ Tiesto. I have a passion for this type of music. But I also listen to Progressive (John Digweed, Dave Seamen), Hard trance (Gary D.), Goa (Juno Reactor), and a little bit of other stuff.

I recently went to a club in the twin cities called "The Quest" and saw DEV a "up and coming DnB DJ." I was intrigued by his music and this is primarily why I am typing this today. I really like the fast beats and the heavy emoting, I liked the energy of the music.

Then I was at Barnes and Noble later that week I was looking at magazines and I found Knowledge. I bought the December 2002 issue. I was interested because of the content being entirely DnB ,and I wanted to hear the music that was on the CD.

From reading some of the threads here I have seen that the members here are familiar with this mag. I ask the people that have this issue to listen to the "free CD" that comes with and turn to the last tracks (14 through the end). I again ask that you identify what type of DnB this is and what artists are similar to this type of music.

For everybody else I just want some suggestions on artists and specific tracks to listen to.


Thanks for your help and for not flaming on my music choice.
:D
