So whats everyones ideal bpm for producing dnb? not DJing though as it can vary, personally i like to produce mostly at 175, i use 174 for liquid, dont know why but it just seems right for me, how about you?
i suppose 173 is my favorite, but anything between 160-180, depends on the vibe and sound i'm going for, neuro i tend to write around 160-168, liquidtech 170-175, liquid upto 178, i dont do much above that speed, but if i do its usualy a bit mental, trash-dnb experimental shit
if your a lazy dj you can do a whole autonomic set without touching the faders cause its all 170/85. all noisias tunes are at 172, break at 174. It doesnt really matter as sometimes breaks give the impression of a faster tune when its slower by a bpm or 2, paradox's beats come to mind especially.
i love playing with 85 cause you still get all the same rhythmic variations at 170. got some good results making more experimental stuff at 340 too
