    Hey, I'm getting really into this kind of gentle ambient jungle sound, like Photek - Rings Around Saturn (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tiYrYUc5zCk&feature=related)

    I really like that its a lot more acoustic than electronic, and doesn't have much in the way of basslines or evil sci-fi electric sounds. I love the drum beats in it. Can anyone recommend me a few more tunes or artists that have a similar sound? I'm more after the drum sounds than anything else

    That was even worse. How about no sig?
    Do you really consider it essential to fill my screen with a picture of a train?
