    Hard to narrow it down to 5, I think they'll be lots of different opinions but for me I think they might be...

    Photek
    Goldie
    Ed Rush & Optical
    Marcus Intalex & St Files ('How you make me feel"l was a turning point in 1999)
    dBridge & Instru:mental (More recently)

    Can I have Roni Size as a 6th!?

    I guess it all depends on your era/at what point you think d&b evolved from other genres...

    But...

    Alltime wise:

    1. Goldie
    2. Ed Rush & Optical
    3. Dom & Roland
    4. Bad Company
    5. Roni Size

    In that order.
