    Can anyone suggest some good ones.

    Stuff sorta like Chase & Status ft Capleton - Slew Dem
    Potential Badboy - You're mine
    J Magik & Wikaman ft Top Cat - Cassanova

    Reggae vocalists and a reggae sort of feel to the track

    search out some old congo natty and kemet records, they might cost a bit now, but they're well worth it

    heres a few aint mentioned yet

    soundclash - pum pum shorts
    benny page - battlefield/cant test
    kenny ken - everyman (benny page & modified motion remixes too)
    Rogue state - sound like (benny page remix)
    rogue state - fashy bashy (jaydan remix)
    majistrate & nicol - purge dem
    majistrate & nicol & fatman - stuck in the jungle
    shut up & dance - outta national (Taxman remix)
    shy fx & t power feat. top cat - everyday (tc & chase n status remixes too)
    chase & status - dumpling riddem
    potential badboy - meat of the ghetto
    potential badboy - gansta roll

    i am quite partial to ragga based dnb!!
    benny page is always good (soundclash is his alter ago), so are chase n status and most of the tunes on hype's jekyll n hyde label are usually that way inclined
    the rogue state remixes are a cpl of gems, always rinse them!! :miss_rep:

    1) Dj Freeze is cool, grab his mixes.

    2) Do a search for the labels Congo Natty and Suburban Base on breakbeat.co.uk.

    3) Also, most tracks that "feat." a male artist have ragga vocals (apart from the Good Looking Records and Hospital Records ones). Search for them. Search in particular for Navigator, Tenor Fly, Capleton, Beenie Man, Elephant Man, Top Cat and Rebel MC (Congo Natty).

    3) Shy Fx's Digital Soundboy label has a load of ragga tracks.

    4) Or just take a look on ebay in the vinyl and cds for jungle/dnb. Any compilation with jungle in the name, pre <96 will have a load of ragga tracks.

    5) Also check www.ragga-jungle.com and http://www.raggajungle.biz/ but be warned that lot think ragga jungle is not dnb.

    Digital Soundboy is full of ragga D&B.
    Quite a bit of Chase & Status is ragga.

    Now we're talking :lighter:

    There's alot of dubwize out there which is your ragga/dnb dancefloor type tunes;
    digital soundboy (shy fx, visionary, benny page)
    and they all make dubwize under other alias's too visionary aka division 1; benny page aka soundclash

    and there's what i call wobble w/ ragga samples;
    chase n status
    taxman
    j majik & wickaman
    qemist

    those are some of the widely known.

    I would suggest Rare Faction if you can find it, massive tunes!! :rambo:

    I'd like to stress that you MUST download Dj Freeze's mixes.

    They have the ultimate ragga/reggae vibes combining modern and old dnb/jungle.

    Oh and Tedder http://www.liquidfunk.ca/ has great reggae mixes.
