This is absolutely the worst thing about drum & bass, I don't like to make negative threads but holy shit! :mad:

What tunes can you name that have taken fucking forever to come out? Which producers are most prone to this type of behavior?

Fresh had that whole incident with Submarines, Hazard I waited like 2 years for Psychedelic,


and I'm still waiting on a fucking release of Space Animals from TC!!!

God fucking damnit

Is there any logical reasoning to this? They want to redo the mixdown or something sure, that doesn't take two years though.

Could be sample clearance or label rights / licensing disputes, or they could be doing it to be cunts.

Really the best thing to do is try not to think about dubplates, just focus on the new releases. Or it will make you mental, no jokes. Been there myself.

Licensing disputes I get, people don't give clearance for the sample and all yeah - I think you've got a point just focusing on new releases.

Shogun are the best at releasing stuff on time and giving you a heads up of when you can expect tunes to drop. Same with Critical too.

Labels like Ram & Subtitles for example just long it hard.

Spor made a tune in 6 hours once - it was available soon after on Shogun audio. They seem to be on top of things.

Halogen by Spor took waaaay too long to come out...

And I'm still waiting on Naglfar by Cooh and CV...

To be honest, it's not an unreasonable amount of time, but I'm pretty impatient.

There are many factors to this. Many of which have been discussed before in various threads, so I'm just going to post this picture instead:

This exactly. Shogun are on the surface at least one of the most professionally run labels in DNB. The Playaz lot seem to get stuff out regularly as well. Not necessarily on time but I think this is because of the steady stream of music that seems to come from them in recent years...
