    I feel like at moment i am quite happy with my current knowledge of who to look out for and and some of the great work that has been done over the last 3 years.
    But my knowledge before 2012 is so very poor can anyone give me a list of the best albums in the period between 2000 or earlier to 2012, so i can compile a playlist and get educated.

    Thanks everyone.

    Personally I'd get to know 1993-99 before seeing what 2000-12 had to offer.
    Listen to the timeline mix and see what stands out for you then go exploring from there.

    You've got a lot of stuff to catch up on bro; personally if you're looking into the liquid area I'd also highly suggest Marcus Intalex and S.T Files, sometimes goes by the name M.I.S.T.

    Magical stuff there.

    For me that decade or so meant Drumfunk especially '04 to '06! If you are using Spotify just search for "drumfunk" and most of the tracks/artists will be from that period.
