    yeah haha i know hospital has a lot of stuff i like, and then at the same time a lot of stuff i dont like. camo and K are definitely all over the place but some of the stuff i really like. Far away, in particular. So im assuming most of the stuff i listed is sort of a combo of many genres and probably a hybrid of jump/liquid.

    it's hard to seperate the sub genres sometimes, but if you're interested enough then by time sub genres don't matter. you'll instantly know the sound by just seeing the name of an artist or label. i don't label dnb really. for me dnb divides into 3 parts

    1. dark as in minimal, deep, heavy stuff - enei, xtrah, icicle's newer stuff, alix perez's newer stuff, octane & dlr, s.p.y. dispatch recordings, critical recordings, virus recordings etc. etc.
    2. light as in jazzy stuff - icicle's older stuff, alix perez's older stuff, calibre, makoto, ltj bukem, soul.r records etc.
    3. ravey, clubby stuff that i don't really listen to anymore - hazard, camo & krooked, netsky's brand new stuff, high contrast's brand new stuff, current value)

    some stuff i think goes in the same box with camo n krooked. in a big box with some of these tunes being in opposite corners, but still:

    loadstar http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pyv6hBmCgDE
    nero http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZFykqOXnZlg

    i myself don't listen to these artists above really, except rockwell.

    I'm fairly new to DnB. I saw a recommendation for Murderbot - More Guns and I was very skeptical because jungle doesn't appeal to me, but it is probably the best DnB track I've yet heard.

    I tend to much prefer high-energy DnB but am not restrictive on genre. The combination of complexity (especially in percussion), very clever high-energy bass lines, and overall creativity really blew me away in the above track. I don't necessarily prefer jungle by any means (maybe I do, I haven't heard enough), but I'm basically looking for more "good" music like the above. Creativity, complexity, subtlety, and hard-hitting energy are what I'm especially looking for.

    I always thought it would be good if there was some sort of DNB sampler available that show cased all the different sub genres, that you could play to friends to get them into it because its so varied when you think about. They either say DNB is sh*t and it all sounds the same or you cant get them to expand further than Pendulum - Hold Your Colour or Roni Size Reprezent -In The Mode

    when they grow up.. then they'll understand the scene.

    not sure what you mean by 'samper' but it would be nice if something along those lines existed.. theres some cool playlists on that viromusic website.. get ur mates onto that.

    Can someone spare a handful of recommendations? I'm listening to Fanu quite a bit ... enjoying the broken beat, Amen Break stuff.

    EDIT: Since I can't be the only one looking for this sort of thing, I'll list similar artists that I find on my own, for two purposes; one, if anyone else happens to have latched onto the sound of one of these guys, this post can offer some additional listening; two, if anyone sees someone here they're familiar with, and can recommend another similar artist/album, feel free to say so. The list below consists entirely of albums, as I do not really enjoy listening to single tracks or collections of just a few tracks.

    Fanu - Daylightless, Serendipity, Homefree
    Fanu & Bill Laswell - Lodge
    macc & dgoHn - Some Shit Saaink
    Source Direct - Exorcise the Demons
    Eschaton - Supernova
    Nic TVG - Then I Disappear
    Breakage - This Too Shall Pass
    Paradox - The Musician as Outsider, What They Don't Know, Ramifications
    Alaska - The Mesozoic Era, Arctic Foundations
