lets talk.

I would love to make the point that what I love about grime/dubstep is the deep atmospherics and unsettled feeling a lot of it has. Even though its a lot slower it reminds me of the 93 darkcore more than any type of dnb does nowadays. I am sentimental about this period because its when jungle really took big leaps evolving out of hardcore, and I was raving every weekend.
My girlfriend also loves it, I think cause it has dubby aspects and she likes nasty tunes even more than me.

I think one aspect of dnb which I find interesting is that 'dark' came to mean 'hard-as-nails-skullsmasher', which always seemed to be against what I liked about the first wave of darkness, that it had space and eeriness, as the massive synth riffs of hardcore gave way to pure drum pressure by going all floaty and weird
