    ^^Dunno man, their basslines can go pretty hard, would fit well with neurofunk tracks ;)

    I've been digging some of the ost tunes off the Ronin Warriors series of late; otherwise, I'd say it's the elevator music and smooth jazz playlists I listen to every now and again.

    la dispute - wildlife is such an amazing album, never fails to elict an emotional response from me

    tbh d&b draws from such a wide range of influences that there really isn't a lot of stuff thats just plain "not" drum & bassy

    I don't know, musicals, classical music, pink floyd, trad jazz, singer songwriters, folk music all seem pretty unrelated. I'm sure I could think of others, but I don't really listen to any of those, apart from a few pink floyd tracks now and again.

    Anything other than dnb i guess, there was a thread like this in waffle though i think.

    On topic though listen to alot of ambient, which i suppose is as far as you can get from drum & bass.
    Rock wise listen to Pink Floyd, Tool, Metallica etc. Darkside are fast becoming my new fave band, their Boiler Room set is awesome, well worth checking out

    I think anything I listen to these days has influenced a drum & bass track in some way.. Rock, house, garage, Dubstep, jazz, soul, funk, reggae.

    Huge fan of Wolfgang gartner, overwerk and a few other non-conformist electro-house guys. But when it comes to actoustic stuff ive pretty much never listen too, except maybe jazz when it pops up. Fucking love jazz.
