Hello all,

I've been wanting to get into drum & bass for a while, ever since i first started hearing it and loving it years ago, but I've never known where to start from. I tend to (unfortunately) have pretty specific tastes but I'm not completely sure what they are in terms of drum & bass. I was hoping for a few recommendations on good places to start, a list of artists to check out or something. I do know that I am interested in a few specific things but I'm quite happy to check anything good out. Specifically I tend to like slightly darker electronic music, and with drum & bass I love some of the chilled out stuff with pianos, flutes etc, some of that stuff can be awesome to listen to or just to have as background music. Can anyone help out?
Thanks heaps

Try anything from the record label Hospital if you like stuff with flutes and pianos and similar vibes.

Specifically - London Elektricity, High Contrast, Nu:Tone, Mistabishi, Logistics, Danny Byrd.

Also try listening to the group EZ Rollers.
