    This threads been done before, I know that. But times change.. producers drop off the face of the earth *cough* Culture Shock *cough* so I thought I'd start afresh instead of bumping this badboy: http://dnbforum.com/showthread.php/89160-top-5-artists

    List below your top 5 producers. Me and my mate did this last night and could instantly reel off the biggest 5 for us, these are guys who's tunes will ALWAYS feature in our mixing.

    (In no particular order)

    1. Calibre
    2. Break
    3. Noisia
    4. Culture Shock (Despite his upsetting lack of releases.. I don't like thinking about it.. it makes me blubber)
    5. Hazard

    Break
    Calibre
    Hazard
    Culture Shock
    Logistics (i don't think he gets enough credit when it comes to being one of the best the scene has)

    Break (love how he is on everyones list so far, fucking should be!)

    Dillinja - I dont care about his newest releases, the back catalogue is still un-parred with most others.

    Spectrasoul

    Foreign Concept - havn't heard a bad tune of his yet.

    Culture Shock
    Break
    Noisia
    Enei
    Logistics

    Too many to mention though, Calibre, Mefjus, Phace, S.P.Y., Rockwell, SpectraSoul, Alix Perez and Technimatic could be have easily fitted in.

    Remember when someone on this forum said Break was overrated?

    Proof that humans can be deaf & stupid at the same time

    Enei - love this guys style
    Phace & Misanthrop- massive intro's on their tunes
    Optiv/BTK --> These guys are doing it for me this year
    Spectrasoul- couple of the older tunes will stay forever in the bag

    Will leave number 5 open, there's just too much upcoming talent that i'm playing out, and other good producers in the scene we should never forget about.
