    If you could only play one dnb tune to someone to try and get them into the music, what would it be?
    I know it's a tough question because of all the different styles and sub genres, but thats sort of why i'm asking. :D

    i dunno, i have tried a few times to convert some of my mates. but they're all into metal so i go for the angry dirty jumpup sound like sub zero - motion. if that fails i drag them to a playaz night and that normally does the job.

    Sums up everything this is great about dnb without being too scary. How could they not love the bassline in it?

    That tune would only have the desired effect if you play the other two tunes involved and tell the story at the same time, as we're dealing with d&b noobs here

    That 'Shut The MC Up' tune would probably be funnier

    Tear you Down is what got me really mental about dnb... so that i guess? although to be honest i only really went to dnb nights before, that just made me want to DJ

    You could introduce this as a style of reggae...





    Or this as hip-hop....
