Shy FX & T-Power's vibe on Diary of A Digital Soundboy is my favourite kind of drum & bass, also my favourite dnb LP! It's got that 90's/early 00's r&b vibe but heavy bass and incredible vocals. I've been searching for these kinds of tunes for YEARS with barely any luck. Looking for a similar vibe by other artists (I've already got Set It Off, not quite as good as their second album, but still).

Anyone have suggestions? Lately I've been listening to sambass and this:

easily one of the best uses of R&B vocal samples in modern Drum and Bass imo.

Check out Al Pack's soundcloud, he's good at stuff like this.
Loving his liquid funk, thanks for the link!

Potential Badboy?
YES, this is the vibe I'm looking for. Just checked out You're Mine with Yush. So good.

Really? I've never actually been a huge Calibre fan, can you point me to some songs?

Jenna G's album 'For Lost Friends'...
Yeah I love Jenna G, do you know who produced this album?

Also these two:


LOVE Makoto and Marky, I've got pretty much everything by them in my collection already. That second tune is beautiful though!!!

Checkout Atlantic Connection's tunes from 8-10 years ago. Both his Dispatch release/s & the Westbay bits...

I thought diary was very heavily influenced by reggae music?

I'd say visionary and benny page are your similar vein artists.
