    Maybe we should change this so it's a place for all music. There's nowhere to chat about Hip Hop, Metal, Reggae, Country, Classical etc whatever your other flavours may be.

    There's a lot of Hip Hop/Metal heads on here.

    Just a thought.

    I agree.. I think hip hop , reggea , metal , .. are all genres that are linked to dnb in some way.. maybe some more than others but at least there has to be a place to talk about them..
    but I don't think there will be many people who agree with this..

    Well it's just a matter of expanding the UK underground, which isn't hugely active anyway, to cover all other music bar DnB.

    I agree I'll add my name to Brofski's plans of upheavel, though I cant help thinking if this gets approved what other madcap ideas he will try to push through. Remember Hitler had to start somewhere.

    Seriously though Brofski, good idea.

    i remember when stu created the UK underground forum and ive never been quite satisfied with it's name... dnbforum has started attracting international members and i think the forums should reflect this.

    heaps of people love chatting about hip hop, but if its not 'uk hip hop' then i dont feel right putting it in the uk underground forum, but as it is atm, theres really nowhere more appropriate to put it.

    Something simple?

    Alternative Music
    Alternate Genres

    Or something snazzy? I'm no thespian, but I'll give it a go

    An "acid jazz" section would be most lovely

    All fans of Kenny "crazy finger" McBloom will agree

    I think the UK underground bit should stay, but there could be some sort of sub-forum business e.g.

    [​IMG]

    there could be one hip-hop bit, then one dubstep bit and then just a general one-other music, like in the screenshot.

    :)

    Marlboro Suite or Marlboro Lounge either would be good.

    i dont think we have enough traffic in the uk underground section to make any subforums yet.

    it just needs a simple general name.
