    ^ More liquid than anything else, aye.
    The sci-fi samples tend to happen in neuro (beardstep XD)or skullstep (Yank-dominated hard dnb, sounds a bit like a cutlery drawer being chucked down a liftshaft). Or early RAM stuff :)

    I diss female vocals in dnb a fair bit I admit, but I like plenty of songs featuring them. Just about anything Current Value have done with Snow, for example...

    ...'The Power' - fucking awesome track

    Proper drum and bass drumbeats them.

    If I get tickets in time, I'm going to see High Contrast and Logistics early October in a club near me :D I don't get excited easily but I'm pretty hyped about this.

    As far back as I can remember I always wanted to be a ninja.

    Course they've been mentioned dude.

    I need to get some more liquid myself, most of my collection is pretty heavy stuff, but there's definitely a time and place for liquid and more soulful dnb.

    Man, revisiting old stuff can be awesome.
    Case in point: tonight I've got "Colours" by Adam F on the iPod.
    The son of Alvin Stardust. Think about that.
    Deep, dark, funky, varied, spectactular production - this album has it all for me.

    /sways about, nodding a lot at his desk

    Liquid is OK, but some tunes have way too much lyrical content for my liking and others sound too similar to ambient music. I say that now, but thats because i've got into neurofunk/techstep - I used to be in love with Liquid but that time (...thinking I was euphoria-on-legs being high off my face) has mostly passed.

    i was listening to a few 98-99 mixes with the old Planet V tunes on it. Brand new funk etc. Adam F went so wanky once he started trying to put rappers in his tunes and the like.

    Also, Stardust never actually had anything to do with raising him i believe.

    If you want to try some D&B, the latest compilation from London Elektricity & High Contrast is brilliant. It's called 'Hospitality Presents: This is Drum+Bass'

    Just had a skip through the track listing on iTunes, really not a fan of the style of stuff they're into now - all that Sub Focus noise is techy and fake sounding. I love the tracks like 'If We Ever' by HC, though.

    Been getting back into the hospital podcast since getting an iPhone a while back, some good tracks on there recently.

    Hospitality @ Thekla last Friday night was fucking brilliant :D (High Contrast and Logisitics were the main events)

    As far back as I can remember I always wanted to be a ninja.

    What do people think of Sub Focus' debut album then?

    It's OK, not going to set anything on fire though. Problem is, all the big tunes off it have been rinsed for years already.
    The missus loves it, but she's much more of a 'dancefloor' DnB fan than me :)

    One of my favourite liquid producers.

    A bit good? What I've heard of it makes me think that it could be the greatest drum & bass release for ages.

    Any other John B fans here?

    Proof at last that Maidenhood is actually good for something.

    I'm more of a Junglist than a D&B mn, but I've recently got into Venetian Snares.

    anyone going to the next JUNGLE FEVEEEEER?! fucking awesome night as always.

    Nothing can quite compare to DJ Hype's Drum and Bass Selection 2. Those that know, know.

    IMHO John B has taken the parody too far and hasn't actually done any good tracks for a while. In Transit was fantastic, had just the right balance of cheese and decent music. Then came Electrostep, and it was not great.

    I'm still not sure about the new Dom & Roland. I maintain that the last really good heavy DnB album was Telemetrik - My Lightyear.

    Logistics has still been doing some good stuff, and of course within Break, Silent Witness & co's endless catalogue of near-identical tunes there are a few great ones (Jungle Step and Meridian spring to mind).

    I really haven't heard anything essential in a while other than Telemetrik though, and he seems to have gone to ground.

    Sight Beyond by John B is intense. Heard Gatchet drop it at Bagleys back in 98 (where the hell have the lasty 11 years gone!?!)

    I do think that Up all night isnt as amazing as everyone seems to think. The original is pretty sweet, but the remix just seemed to disappear up its own arse.
