    So what u all listening to at the mo?
    I'm hardly listening to d&b at all nowadays. Iv found I'm really into rap & pretty much everything, club classics & new house (despite hating it for years!) and even garage (only cos it gets played on pirate radio).

    Still listening to DNB, Hip-Hop/Rap, and Nu Metal as per usual.

    I've been mostly playing John B's January 2005 mix (y)

    When I'm not listening to dnb? Well, I've found myself recently listening to Hefner - Reworks, Rainstick Orchestra - Floating Glass Key in the Sky, and various other lo-fi albums, along with the usual helping of Dj Shadow, Fingathing, and sometimes hip-hop, Trip-hop, and trance.

    And you want to admit that?

    I think you need some dnb reeducation.

    Grab your copy of:
    New Forms
    Shot Down On Safari
    Nightlife
    V Forever
    Chronology
    Timeless
    High Society
    Cybotron
    Black Secret Technology

    ...

    new house.

    Jesus.

    :tut:

    I couldn't disagree more; their old stuff stands the test of time, this newer stuff is great listening too. I recommend it to anyone who doesn't want to drag out their copy of

    New Forms
    Shot Down On Safari
    Nightlife
    V Forever
    Chronology
    Timeless
    High Society
    Cybotron
    Black Secret Technology

    for the 100th time.

    Anyway, you listen to anything other than dNb yourself?

    Half and half - jungling breaks (Deekline/Freestylers), acoustic "kill myself and da bitch" rock (Cake, Police), classical records (lovely bass some tracks), hippity hop (Cypress Hill), acid jazz and 90's jazzy stuff (Massive Attack, Portishead), electroclash, John Carpenter soundtracks, ghettotech... anything that's good and has a vibe that isn't just 4 on the floor and euphoric keys or constant buildup harmonies.

    I'd heartily agree you can't listen to dnb all the time or even play dnb all the time if you're a dj but if you're listening to nuhouse or club classics, then you really need to go back to the old and new old skool dnb.

    Dnb seems to be waking up again, renaissance anyone?

    haha! yeah i had to admit it. now that I'm 18 & can legally go to clubs i'm getting into a variety of mainstream music more, which aint a bad thing. if i didnt like that kind of music i'd have nowhere to go every weekend with mates!
    dont get me wrong, i still luv d&b, but its just been a lil quiet recently.

    Serious intelligent cool music with excellent production values and beautiful instruments for head nodding, Roni Size plus Kosheen plus Jamiroquai.

    Yawn.

    Old stuff = not yawn.

    Know the problem. The dnb scene round here has been almost dead (no regular parties) for the last two years - tragic. I think the hard core Lodz sound killed it - sounds like David Lynch on speed trying to produce dnb.

    Then just as I started playing for my friends because nobody else was playing just as dnb raves became regular again (well actually I went to two just before they became regular and decided that I needed more - started playing and... and the scene revived). We've gone from no raves to having to choose between them and getting gigs without having to convince the manager that dnb is not techno on speed. Next step, massive raves.

    I was going to better house, breaks and regga parties during the almost dead period but the regga became less regular and the house became utterly unbearable (no amount of beer, vodka or mdma could get me jumping to prog - only a fit girl could and that for a short time) and the breaks were heading into prog house.

    Situation's a lot better nowadays and there's plenty of new stuff coming out (wasn't 2004 a great year for tracks?) and the classics are much better than club tosh (not that I don't like to bop to Benassi's Satisfaction but don't tell anyone).

    You're saying 4Hero fell off, which is fine, but its not a fact its your opinion.
    And insinuating I'm pretentious for liking them pisses me off.

    Never said that, I think you're reading much too much into a non-derogatory description of 4hero's current style of music.

    never heard of 4hero.. and in response to having a lack of a dnbscene, i live in a sleepy little country town, with a huuge dnb scene..but its all chavs and people who if you express your feeling to dnb will try and steal your wallet and stab you in the chest, so anyway...while i'm not listening to dnb, its all about the hard house at the moment....
