    heya !
    welcome to the forum
    i think you should definitly have a look at
    hospital mix 6 and 7, check that out. really good mixes. and REALLY cheap as well.
    like 3 quid.

    if you have itunes, i recommend you subscribe to the dnbarena podcast
    and check out shimon's and sigma's mixes. BOTH really good

    Like Chloe said, check out the D&BA podcasts on Itunes, they're free..they'll usually say whether there is an MC in the mix or not. But as Chloe told me before, they newest ones haven't had MCs. But yeah, check out mixes, and you can see in the tracklistin's what ya might want to get for singles,etc...
    In my opinion, most Dnb that is good isn't really "mainstream"...usually big labels in the mainstream want you to make a sound that "they" think will sell, so the producer's usually have to change their sound to accomadate the label. Look more into the non-mainstream, ya' might find some stuff there that will surprise ya'..pz & welcome to dnbforum.

    You'd be surprised how many people consider the mc ruins the tune.
    Welcome to the forum btw, what sort of dnb you into?
