Before all the vinyl only purist newb haters get involved...

Try...

DJ Marky - Movement - The Brazilian Job
The Moving Shadow 98.0 etc series (originally 99p each and should still be available cheaply if you search, most of them cover a very nice range of styles)
Roni Size - Reprazent New Forms and anything else...
DJ Hype - Jungle Massive & 21st Century Breakbeat
Andy C - Nightlife series
Pendulum - Hold Your Colour
VALVE - Big Bad Bass & KillaHertz
Shy FX - Diary of a digital Soundbwoy

&

The cover mount cds on KNOWLEDGE magazine are usually very good...And you'll learn summat from the magazine.

But 1st d/l some of the mixes in the mix section of this forum!

& on the www.break-neck.com website audio.

I'd also say, if you're new, then buying Dbl cds, with one cd of unmixed trx and one with them DJ mixed is a nice way to find out what kind of tracks you like, and how DnB DJ sets work.

Also...

you could try to find out / remember what DJs were playing at Ministry the night you went and then track down their mix cds...

Most of the big names have done em.

A couple of good cds I picked up recently are

Original Drum & Bass Selection
Drum & Bass Sessions 2

They're both double cds which are unmixed & contain a lot of classic tunes covering the whole dnb spectrum. Well worth the price (think I got em 2 for a tenner). Not many fillers here imo :D

As far as mixed cds go the Liquid V ones are good, as long as you like MCs.

But the best (& cheapest) way to work out what you like is has to be either radio or internet radio. You get the most upfront tunes, which are being played in the clubs aswell. Just can't buy em yet (n)

My personal favourites of the moment are -

Chase & Status - Bingo Sessions Vol. 3

Friction - The Next Level 2 (which has a standard but slightly Renegade Hardware style mix CD with lots of fresh tunes + a liquid funk CD too, all for £7.99 from www.play.com!)

and for something a little darker -

Dieselboy - The Human Resource :slayer:

Nice selection for you there :2thumbs: Most ones I could think of have already been said. I agree with Breakneck in that Knowledge magazine cover CDs are worth picking up. With the CD and magazine for £4 its a bargain. Some of the best drum & bass mix CDs I own have been Knowledge covermounts so keep an eye out for them :2thumbs:

Roni Size - Reprazent New Forms and anything else...
I recently read a question on a dnb forum "Anybody heard of Roni Size?"

Anyway, D's list is excellent.

Its a good idea to buy cds in job lots on Ebay. You might not like everything you get, but it will expand your horizons.

There might be some heavier shit you could get into too -
check Metalheadz, Freak and Renegade Hardware label compilations, they usually have a mix CD too
