    Who do you feel has had the largest year of 2004? My picks are Pendulum, obviously, and High Contrast for that huge album he put out.

    Gotta be Calibre, there's been loads of his tunes and collaberations in 2004, all of his tunes this year have been highly rated by most, and then, of course, there's Drop It Down, phat tune :rik:

    All Fanu's output has been amazing particularly Defunct Drums Depression Decade which got people grooving down my local in arse shaking ways. Also a massive big up to Breakage and Equinox who've been killing it.

    Gridlok done some wicked stuff all of this year, & Skynet also came out with some bad tunes. I think HydroFlash is my fav so far but then Rhino is so good!!!!

    Gotta agree wit u there Sayber. Hydroflash is a great roller & Rhino was pretty sick. Which leads onto Dom & Roland for his great album Chronology. Also John B made a whole album of phat tunes n all. Cant sleep on Drumsound & Bassline Smith who had a good year with their new revamped style either. And of course Pendulum. How about Evol Intent too, I hadnt heard of them before this year.

    I'd say the many top players for 2004 would be:

    Calibre for all the amazing work he did
    Amit i shouldn't have to explain why
    High Contrast for making some more high class music
    Pendulum showing that they really are never going to stop pounding their mindblowing shit out
    Dillinja and Lemon D because they just can't be fucked with
    Photek for all the stuff waiting to drop and BALTIMORE
    Bassline and Drumsound for redefining themselves and smashing it
    Zinc for compiling and releasing all those slick tunes on bingo and not to mention bingo sessions, which brings me to...
    Friction even though i might not like his production style as much as others, as a DJ he's got amazing skills and just blew up even more this year as far as that goes
    Baron for defining his sound further and gaining a lot of noteriety
    All the drum edit masters for bringing it back!
    The GOOD American producers for proving there's still potential in the US
    Dynamite Mc for proving you can be a drum and bass mc and make good music

    Renegade Hardware gets props for the album, the remix eps, and all the other darkness
    Breakbeat Kaos because its like the vip club of the scene
    Full Cycle- the new peeps Clipz and Tali and all the other members had a very high quality year
    Hospital for the crazy amount of talent on its roster
    Ram for extending the raiders series, Sub Focus, and of course the executioner
    Virus- Ed and Op had a big year, and the remixes good god

    Metalheadz for reclaiming the throne

    Basically it was a huge year for everyone and just goes to show that the scene is growing bigger and better, and that this music cannot be ignored.
