Discussion in 'Drum & Bass' started by alexan, May 20, 2009.
question: Which ones you think are the top 5 Drum & Bass labels?
get ready for the banter....
To me, in no particular order:
Soul:R / Signature
Honorable mentions to shogun, integral and metalheadz
hahahah i laughed alot.
The final 2 places are up for grabs and I'll have to think about it for a while
depends if you mean now or all time...
All time woudl be
Right now....very hard to say, bearing in mind back in the day you would get EP's where every track was wicked, there was maybe one crap release per 20 releases if that, and record shopping was a bastid cos you wanted teh whole week's stock. ...but based on current output, consistancy, and generally phat trax...
Shogun - Top quality releases everytime
Ram - Reponsible for most of the recent dancefloor smashers
Hospital - Huge back catalogue and still going strong
Metalheadz - Proves goldie knows what he's doing
Ninja Tune - Not strictly DNB, but one of the most underated labels
Love ninja tunes and if you are on that flex then Stones Throw deserves a mention too.
At the murment:
Shogun & SGN
in no particular order
ram - all round sound - user friendly
critical - tech beats
shogun - alix perez
Its hard to only pick 5 really as there are so many wicked labels around that I wanna pay respect to. They all push the sounds that I really really enjoy. So off the top of my head the ones I always seem to buying from:
Yeah I can't narrow it down to 5 because of the different style labels offer, etc..but nice one on the choices that are some of my fav liquid labels...
use the search button records
At the moment:
Oh yeah how could I forget C.I.A. That would round out my top 5.
I love marky's label Innerground, but they don't put out enough material. The stuff they do release is sick, though.
I also can't wait until Makoto's label takes off. Sweet jazzy liquid goodness.
