    Obviously i listen to dnb but i go through phases of listening to other genres, usually changes every month

    ive gone through almost genre posssible hip hop/metal/indie/rock/grunge/punk/house/breakbeat/old skool rock?

    Just got into reggea, currently listening to sizzla and downloading elephant man as you read this cos they were the only names that sprang in my head

    can anyone recommend any big albums?



    JAH!
