    So, we all know its a given that tunes like Atlantis, Valley Of The Shadows and Circles just to name a few are classic examples of D&B.

    But....what do you consider to be modern day classic records? Are there any? Theres no specific criteria. I'm sure what people consider classics will differ greatly.

    My vote? Gotta be Swamp Thing....

    drop it down
    wonder where

    only two tunes i can think of at the moment that, in my opinion, deserve classic status. i'm sure there are more, but let's not bandy this term 'classic' around too willy-nilly. to be a classic it needs to stand the test of time and not just be because an individual loves it and used to rave their tits off to it. we've all got tunes like that floating around our minds but that doesn't make them classic.

    I'm just gonna list what I see as classic or slightly revolutionary... Most will never go on to get played outside a 2-3 year shelf life, but I like em.

    Drop it Down

    I'm Free

    Refusal (rmx or orig)

    Be True

    Heavyweight

    Come Here

    Ashram

    Disco Dodo

    Konspiracy

    Adoration

    SHK

    Moving in Circles

    Monkey Boy

    Headspace

    The genre and scene is so fickle though that it is always hard to tell, there are enough tunes that are considered classic that are also crap.

    Probably a few upfront tunes will get rinsed as well for years to come.. I just don't have the strength to mention them
