Hey.

I'm fairly new to Drum & Bass. Anybody from Atlanta? They've got a great D&B show on 88.5 FM, that's where I've heard most of the stuff I know.

But I want to get myself some CDs. Got any suggestions for good stuff to start with? Could be classic, brand new, or a compilation, anything.

Man, I wouldn't even know how to describe it. What do those sound like? I've got a couple recordings I made from the radio...how can I post a clip here so I can give examples as to what I like?

Thanks for the suggestion J.M.--those sound really cool. I like Vol. 2 especially, the song Punisher is right along the lines of the kind of stuff I've heard and liked before.

go through stuff like the nightlife compilation, also any of the dnbarena mixtapes.
then post here what the stuff you here is that you like.
then people can direct you to artists that go with your taste

Download some mixes from the mixes forum on here, find a few artists you like and we should be able to come up with a list

Most of the mixes here are Jump-Up though.

Just go on YT and search for a Jump-Up mix, a Neurofunk mix, a Liquid mix, a dark dnb mix (or check out Dieselboy's Substance D album), a minimal dnb mix. Decide which one you liked best, go from there.

Heres a few diff styles that have recived good playings on me MP3

1. Noisia - Fabriclive.40 - Techstep
2. Cyantific - Ghetto Blaster - Liquid
3. Technical Itch - You need therapy - Hard & Dark & pounding
4. Evol Intent - Us Against The world - Dark, Fairly Broken Beat orientated
5. Subfocus - Subfocus - Quite mainstream jump up-y

3 of those are mixes, as you might find one or two acts on them an branch of your own search from there.
