    There are other threads going around usually involving how Pendulum have affected the dnb scene. Some people think they are pioneers. I thought it would be interesting to see everyones thoughts on who the true pioneers are in dnb.

    It can be people or labels. Some of the labels will cover a few dj's who might also be listed.

    Mine are:

    Fabio
    Grooverider
    Moving Shadow
    Goldie/Metalheadz
    Randall (I do realise randall is under the metalheadz label as well but I thought he should be included for his sets in the AWOL days)
    Andy C
    Roni Size
    Zinc
    Hype
    Stevie Hyper D (RIP)
    GQ

    Took the words right out my mouth Dustek!

    Most of the folks round here would think that "Voodoo Ray" is some geezer who works down at their local headshop...

    YEP i second that!!

    Bad Company

    Loxy

    Ink

    Black Sun Empire <--- in fact i think these guys have been the biggest pioneers over the last few years. Not just them but their label aswell. (Telemetrik for instance)

    Technical Itch

    John B <---- Everyone forgets about this guy! PROPER WKD PRODUCER!!

    Twisted Individual <-- In my opinion he pretty much pioneered the new wave of Jump-Up

    I think Photek should be included, as well as the Jungle Sky crew- 1.8.7., Yellow Note, and of course Soul Slinger.

    Did anyone mention Omni Trio & Foul Play?

    Suburban Base was also a pioneering label like MS imho.
