    • Zinc - Ska
    • Total Science - Squash
    • Trace - Sonar (Remix)
    • Exile - 108 Down
    • Universal Project - Haunted Dreams

    Labels
    My current fave labels include:

    • Ice Minus
    • Hardware
    • TOV
    • True Playaz
    • Universal Project
    • Valve

    I think my big thing at the moment is DEEP DEEP bass
    So hence here's my faves

    ARTISTS

    DJ Hazard
    Devize & 3A
    DJ Daze
    Sappo
    Total Science
    Dylan
    Digital

    FAVE LABELS

    Too many to list really, but main ones are

    3D MODE (brum's finest)
    Structure / Radius / Second strike (Hazard and co's labels)
    Reinforced
    CIA / Advanced / Function
    Cylon / Outbreak
    Poison
    Nu - Urban
    East Side
    True Playaz / Global Frontline etc

    Generally tho I like to just buy a bit of allsorts, and lots of obscure promos and stuff. My tastes change weekly, I tend to say order a lot of oldskool style stuff, then a lot of jazzy, the next week then a lot of tech, then some with the big amens and stuff another week.

    I like the dark stuff and jump up.

    Jump Up:

    Urban Takeover, Prisoners of Technology, True Playaz (hype & zinc...pascal I'm not too keen on) and the occasional Ganja Kru, Dread, Ed Rush, Doc Scott tracks.

    tramen is the name of the drum loop originally invented by Trace. I think it's an "Amen" break (from Amen Brother) mixed with the "Tighten Up" break, plus a little extra secret ingredient... TR(ace)AMEN ---- gettit...
    Check out almost all of Trace's tunes if you want to hear what it sounds like.


    Or check out: http://www.ac.wwu.edu/~henninl/homemade_firefight.mp3 for an example of a home-made effort by someone on the Drum & Bass Arena Discussion Board.

    PLUS check out my tunes: http://www.electronicscene.com/studioviper
    ...blatant plug... :D
