    Every record label has it's own individual sound and style and i'm interested to know which tracks you think sum up and express that sound best.. Obviously this is all down to personal opinion, i'm gonna list off my thoughts for a few record labels but feel free to add in or change some labels if you like

    Ram - Lowdown - Xample
    Playaz - Busted - Hazard
    Quarantine - Authentic - Break
    Shogun - Indigo - Subwave
    Metalheadz - Talk to Frank - Commix
    Valve - In The Grind - Dillinja
    Critical - Alibi - Spectrasoul
    Virus - Bacteria - Ed Rush & Optical
    Renegade Hardware - Beckoning - Konflict

    I'd disagree with a few of them:

    Metalheadz is Alex Reece - Pulp Fiction
    RAM is Valley of the Shadows or Turbulence
    Renegade Hardware is Messiah

    YesYes. I'd say I've mixed that more than any track I own.

    That would be a good thread actually, what tune that you own have you played the most?

    Be a good sign of shelflife for alot of tunes

    Mine is probably "Subfocus - Druggy" ... just can't get enough of that understated drop and those cowbells! Mixing heaven!
