    Hi all, this is my first post on this amazing forum (except the "introduce yourself" one of course) !!
    The main purpose of the topic is to collect those tracks that make "drum and bass" what it actually is.
    I'm just not talking about the most popular ones, but those that represent this genre independently from the amount of copy that they sold.
    I discovered DnB 2 years ago, but I had never listened to it so frequently until now, so I can't define myself as an expert, on the contrary I am a sort of neophyte.
    So I appeal to those who really know every facet of it.
    Thanks to the "New to drum & bass?" topic I discovered lots of subgenres that I never heard before (except for liquid and dark) so now I would explore this genre in the best way!
    I hope that this topic could grow and became a reference to all of us!
    Thanks in advice guys and thanks for the time you have already spent to make this community what actually is!

    now don't be down ya'll.
    you've given us a few laughs. we like that.

    a serious response to your question.... dnb has been about since the early 90's. there has been so many tunes out each year that every dnb lover should know. trying to replicate how important each track was now apposed to at the time they came out will be an exercise in futility. besides, the classics have been rinsed to fuck over the years and some of them no longer hold as much weight as they once did.
    but if you want to hear how dnb has evolved and learn about some classic tunes then this http://dnbforum.com/showthread.php/160966-DnB-Forum-presents-The-Timeline-Mixtape-(1993-2012)
    isn't the worst place you could start.
