    Despite anyting

    My vote goes for Chase n Status

    Cant touch em

    Serious. And this is prior to their album (or me hearing their album).

    I have heard their sick hip hop, ragga, dnb (of many different styles) and dubstep..... really really good production.

    everyone in the scene is creaming themsleves to get them on board.... br

    PROPS

    im one of the more cynical headz.. but even 'hurt you' gets me going lol. Its just they way they do! and Judgement makes me wanna smash my decks up lol. India dub ..is amainzing too... best dubstep tune for ages!!! SICKNESSSSSSSSSSS

    fair enoguh theirn wanky AI rip off tune whatever that was called is average ..but my gosh they should be killin it...

    I agree with you there Lokki, their versatlity is so fresh and they always keep you guessing with the tunes they put out. Really think they're the main men at Ram at the moment, exceeding Sub Focus from what I've heard imo.

    Secondly without a doubt is Break. The man IS drum n bass. Nuff said

    yep, with u on that they are both killing it

    the bass in that dubstep tune C&S played out recently is immense
    dont own alot of break's stuff but love his drums

    i'd have to add sub focus to the list just because his album is gonna be huge, especially if timewarp & join the dots are anything to go by

    No way. But that weren't the question of the thread mate! :lol_board I know what you mean though, a lot of Break's tunes sound very samey bar some huge releases most on Symmetry or Commercial Sucicide. (The Truth, Destiny Comes Ringing, Yes, Drone. etc etc)

    I think he needs to knuckle down to one or two labels and start knocking out some absolute killers that vary in sound. But tbh the guy is all about the drums really isn't he, not going to be putting any stand out bleeps and squeaks in his tunes.

    yup definitely chase & status imo, everything they touch at the moment turns to gold
    even take me away i love - cant wait for the album, should be immense. really loving their sets aswell, such diversity.

    obviously hazard aswell


    ...just kidding

    brookes brothers are great, they've had some brilliant tunes out, especially the colab with danny byrd
    mistabishi too

    Chase & Status are massive and very talented. They produce quality.

    I think Danny Byrd is right up there as well, Supersize is a wicked album and I like the sounds of Xample too.

    well peeps...... we are all forgetting High Contrast really..... his production is second to none..... in my opinion anyway.

    agreed. Pure class. His remix of Kanye West's Flashing lights or whatever its called is class.

    to be fair as far as straight dnb goes Break..is amazing.. saw him play out recently.. really really good....it was =the clostest thing ive heard to seeing ed rush and bad co back in the day .. but my point is as producers on their own they are amazing from 'in love' to 'judgement' ,...amazing,..but so different,....

    also depends on how you judge talent. love it to bits but stuff like hazard and original sin is basically noise (brilliant noise tho). wheares c&s, high contrast have much more musical talent in my opinion, they have distinctive sounds and are much more original

    i think high contrasts remixes are quite a laugh altho i do see where you're comin from, they are that sorta throw-away dancefloor stuff like alot of the jumpup around these days, but he is honest about making music for people who arent into dnb too, hes got great production skills but just not always to everyones taste
    wouldnt say hazard is particularly talented but he knows what'll go off on the dancefloor i'll give him that, defo couldnt see him making an album tho
