    anything that you can pitch so it is half of the dnb bpm

    there is loads of them. i could sit here and type out some that i have found but there is so many and hip hop is a huge genre, it all depends on what you like.

    for the best mixes use a capella's or something without a heavy snare and a bassline you can eq out.

    Is good with Dub Phizix - Break It, and Mefjus - Distantia, works with loads really. I added a really subtle high hat to the a capella in Logic every bar so there was something to beatmatch it with

    You can use the vocals in Mobb Deep's Shook Ones Part II to make a transition to Ulterior Motive's Featherweight at the point where both tunes use the vocal "Heavyweight, my gun shots will make you levitate"
