    Hey all,

    I was wondering if anyone could name some good Halfstep tunes (forum search didn't render much for me). Other names for the style I'm looking for would be Halftime DnB or Drumstep (though I hate that term). It's a style I'm really getting into be cause it's like the best of both worlds to me. I know there's quite a few good ones out now.

    All suggestions are welcome, but I'm really interested in the non-jump-up tunes. I've searched for liquid and neuro halfstep and I haven't really been successful. Also trying to find some artists that seem to produced mainly this style. I already know about Randomer.

    Any suggestions you have are graciously accepted. Thanks!

    Hopefully I'm getting this right, but Rockwell, Spy, Instra:mental, Data are killing the minimal/halftime scene right now.

    Check out the autonomic podcast for some great stuff: http://club-autonomic.com/

    Mutt and Calibre have both put out some halftime dnb lately also.

    Before anyone else mentions it:

    thanks! I've been really diggin' the autonomic stuff at the moment too, so much great music everywhere.

    lol, I was 110% sure that the first post would be someone suggesting that new Heist - I Need Killers tune... Thanks for proving me wrong!

    Depends what kinda half time you're looking for really.

    "Drumstep" wise, but not jump up i'd say this fits the bill....

    As i said before don't know what kinda stuff you're looking for.

    This could be considered half time for alot of it:

    There's a Drumstep remix of 'Sweet Shop' by Doctor P, only ever heard Hazard play it. I saw it listed as a Hazard remix too

    yo,

    seen this post, I'm a big fan of this up'n'coming genre, so I'm happy to help. The term half step is quite hard to search as most producers of this genre still label their music as Drum and Bass. What you have to do is look for the artists involved. You can start with DBridge who is responsible for Exit Records and Autonomic. These names alone should get you on your way. Further you can look at Raiden and the labels that he is involved with, Offkey and Voodoo, this should put yu through to Morphy and Digital as well.

    here's a mix that I put together with a detailed track list: http://soundcloud.com/solow-1/journey-autonomic

    if you still need more just go to soundcloud and search halfstep etc...

    hope this helps :)

    If you're talking about Halfstep then I suggest Amit:



    if we are talking about experimenting with drums/breaks then I can definitely suggest these people:
