Each to their own of course but
1. I have never heard that doctor p & flux pavillion track and I guess no one caring/interested in d&b had heard of it either...
2. I mean economically/fuzz speaking where are tracks like Marka, Dreadnaught, (Any noisia), Garden Remix, Wilkinson? I mean I'm not into most of noisia's output bar invisible and their deeper tracks but seriously tracks like Program sold like shit, was on 1 everywhere? I didn't really like any wilko either but Overdose was on 1 for weeks!?

Sigma - The Jungle on 1 or is it that doctor p track? Each to their own of course but this list is far away from what people bought / were hyped about.

Wow! I was ready to be disappointed but it looks like kmag are moving closer to my tastes. Jungly sounding tunes used to get such a patronising response from dnb magazines not sure what's happened. I now feel less marginalised than I used to. Nice one jsmith...

And big up to Benny Page for stepping back into the arena! :lighter:

what a joke. honestly all the big labels (ram, hospital, bbk, id almost add shogun) have had a fail year in general. its been all about the rise and domination of smaller labels.
imo this years been huge for dnb but theyre is no doubt theyre are far too many big labels releasing the most boring generic drum n bass which is on par with dubstep for its un-inventiveness.
thankfully some labels still stand for what drum n bass and jungle is all about, forward thinking experimental bass and sample heavy music

I was browsing some tracks and pressed play on two songs that i haven't had heard of and they were dubstep tracks? I don't think its hard to make diffrence between a dubstep and drum and bass track. It is a "drum and bass top20" right?

It's odd. Needs more RAM (or at least different tunes) and definitely much more deep stuff. And some tunes in there are just pure joke. Anyways still better than their Top 10 D&B Producers of 2011, won by Camo & Krooked (and no Enei, Wilkinson or Optiv & BTK).

Lol each to their own, but Ram has smashed it this year for me.

Ram 100 (Stomp, No Reality, Machine, Minus, Refuge)
Protection / Ohrwurm
Berlin / Hit the Ground
Touch Me / Get Into It
Every Time / Overdose
Tonight / Pistol Whip
Basher album (Androids, Transmission Xerox)
Gatekeeper / Mission to Mars
Nightlife EP 3 (Footloose, Lunar Bass, Onslaught)
Creeper
Brainstorm / Echoes

Didn't even know it was possible to release so many good tunes in one year, but Ram did it. I know it is not all to all peoples tastes, but I don't think you can deny how massive that list is. Sure they released shit like the Delta Heavy single and the other half of the Fresh EP, but still. I only see Critical being up there with them.
