    Sorry to be only a brief dabbler in the world of drum and bass :wave: , would be great if you guys know a few ultra-commercial/cheesy drum and bass tunes. Just something that I can drop in as a curve ball to a non-d'n'b crowd to mix up the sets a bit in a mainstream commercial club.

    One that instantly springs to mind is the Aphrodite - "Man of Steel" drum and bass mix of Superman. If there are a few others equally fromagey out there, I'd be delighted if I could ask you all for some names of tunes :not_worth .

    Sorry that I'm at the cheesiest end of the d'n'b spectrum, any thoughts massively appreciated :not_worth :)

    most of the things by chase and status. Like heartbeat. Chicks in my class just love it. Along with The Ladies and Middle Of The Night by Evol Intent. They also love This Way and Act Like You Know by Nero.
    You could use Could This Be Real by Sub Focus aswell, that sounds more than mainstream enough for a normal club.

    Many more to name, but just check these out and come back if you found what kind of stuff you're looking for.
    Christ, that i'm even answering the question 'give me some cheesy stuff for a commercial mainstream crowd'. Feel dirty. :D

    all the old jungle classics are easily recognisable too, lighter, dred bass, the burial, valley of the shadows, bad ass, hype the funk, rock the funky beats, helicopter tune, old prodigy stuff, that reminds me .... prodigy - voodoo people pendulum remix

    thats all i can think of right now man

    Ah mate, ANYTHING that's a boot of a commercial tune will go down well in a cheese club.

    If the people can associate to the lyrics then the beat won't matter.

    Probably go with some latest offerings from C&S and Sub focus.
    Christ, they even get radio play on Radio1 during the day so you know a lot of people have heard them.

    That's the first step.
    After that some stupid ass tells the suckers that it's drum and bass.
    Third step: we welcome them in the Introduce Yourself section. Urgh.

    Also try all the dnb remixes of commercial tunes, for example check out High Contrast's back catalogue of remixes. Also TC has done some commercial remixes, like Day N Nite, Riverside etc... (they're bad though stay away ;)). TC has some good remixes coming soon too, like his remix of Rihanna's 'Rude Boy'.

    Some others:

    Deadmau5 & Kaskade - I Remember (J Majik and Wickaman remix)
    Laidback Luke & Steve Angello feat. Robin S - Show me love 2009 (Blame remix)
    There's a bootleg remix of Layo & Bushwacka's 'Love Story' too which is good.

    Data records' catalogue is the home for Drum & Bass remixes of House tunes.

    Years ago there was this very basic bootleg going around. It was a remix of 'Crazy in love' by Beyonce. It wash a smasher, and I'm pretty sure it was caleb who did it. It's very hard to come by in this day and age but that's a very known pop song and people would recognize it so that could be a good choice. IF you can find it somewhere.
