    Mates, I don't think this topic has ever been brought up before and I think it would be interesting to see some of your thoughts on this. A couple of times throughout being in the DnB scene, I have heard tracks that had the best notes that actually got my heart racing from the dramatic feeling coming from those notes and the overall atmosphere of the track. When I think of the ones I am posting I am mainly focused on the lead synths and pad progression. (PS: This is a serious discussion, no nonsense)

    Probably my top pick (Neutral Point - The Night Fury VIP: take a listen if you haven't, well worth it):

    Another one is Kung - Misuse, the synth that starts at 0:34 is crazy:

    Grafix - Encore, the chorus and the synths and pads going right before it are what I'm talking about:

    The last one I'll put up is Hamilton's remix of Jasper Forks - River Flows in You:

    Take a listen to all and post some of yours!

    Quite a recent one, but still gets me on every listen:




    Calibre - No Reply/Second Sun would be up there too along with june miller -brave man (before the crappy vocals ruin it)

    The first time hearing this + finding something that mixes sublimely with it used to give me goosebumps on my arms. Still does something to me & will forever be one of my favourite tunes from this sub-genre of dnb :)

    TwoThirds & BadApple - Sense Of Being (Ft. Veela)

    If you are focusing on lead synths and pad progressions then mine would be Telemetrik - My Lightyear. That track is the ultimate in D&B for me when it comes to emotion. Also Make Your Choice / Confession from Calyx & TeeBee are among lightyear as well :)

    Still early days for this thread! Also..

    Really good shout man. But for me, it's 'emotional potency' for want of a better phrase isn't quite the same on successive plays. What I mean to say is when I first listened to white lake it hit me hard, but on more recent plays it hasn't really provoked the same level of emotion. but that's just me!

    I also remember having a wicked time at a local dnb night, stood in the middle of the rave / crowd, thoroughly engrossed in the music when this tune came on. Probably the highlight of the night

    BCee & Lomax - Dust 'til Dawn
