    Right now, for me, labels like Exit, Nonplus & Darkestral are doing it.
    Releases on Shogun Audio & Metalheadz are also top quality right now. Spectrasoul, Perez, Break, S.P.Y, Data, Commix are really shaping dnb at the mo IMO

    it's too broad a genre to be defined by certain producers or labels, but i can tell you for damn sure what isn't/shouldn't and please god doesn't define drum and bass... sub focus album

    spectrasoul's definitely got some nice tunes...love the deep bass :ban:

    Nero also has some big smashers, and I can't really knock Sub Focus, although that World of Hurt isn't for me...

    there's so much going on at the mo its hard to narrow down.. as for labels there's ur obvious ones like Ram, Hospital, breakbeat kaos.. but also labels such as Viper, Critical, Exit are all pushing boundaries and gaining a lot of popularity at the mo
