    Uberl33t techy, hard, heavy yet still very dancefloor dnb. Stuff like, Teebee, Resonant Evil, Nightwalker, Tech Itch, BCUK, Ram etc.

    And also various bootlegs, raggae/hip-hop influenced stuff and more mainstream, Full Cycle, True Playaz bits like Potential Bad Boys new(ish) EP, Digital - Square Rock, Surge & D Product.

    What about you?

    Prefer to let the beats roll myself,also try and build the set right from the Liquid to Jump up and then just get very nasty an dirty techy stuff,Thats the way it is over here where i live,peeps still need educating... If they dont need educating well i mix it up jump-up and a lot of Techy stuff

    As far as mixing goes, I doubledrop a lot, my EQings a bit shit at the moment, I'm not into teases really but I am slowly seeing the light, just havent found any that do it for me, I try to add a few classics in, I will learn to scratch and beatjuggle when I upgrade my setup but its not really worth it yet.

    I would if I knew how, I just cut down the b-lines coz they sound muddy on my setup, I can get a half decent sound out of a double-drop, but its all guess work. Any1 got any links to some good advice on EQing?

    Like to get a bit of Craig David in the mix, when im feeling proper 'BO!' Theres always room for some S-Club 7 & no mix is complete without some proper old skool like Abba or Chaz 'n' Dave.....

    My advice with the EQing is get a decent mixer with some quality gain controls & an extra filter unit. All the things you need to pimp a mix! :evil:

    My (in my bedroom this is, not out in a club cos that depends on the club).

    Big bashy tunes with lots of vocals and bounce. Mixed with some rolling summery beats (cos its summer) and then a couple of tear ouit amens from dread and maybe a bit of jungle beats throen in. Nothing too techy and hardsteppy if u knwo what i mean...

    Its gotts get u dancing propa not just nodding bur head!

    Basically anything from, Valve, V, Fullcycle, True Playaz, Hospital, Dread (for the beats), and Malheadz!"

    one label i am not feeling at the mo is Ram...dont ask me why i just aint feeling there style no more!
