    Hey. So it's no secret that aside from my Reggae addiction, I love DnB and am always looking for more. I know some of you must like it too, so here's a thread about it!! Give me your fave DnB songs/remixes and I'll post mine too!!

    Stupid filter: DnB is bass heavy 140-180bpm dance music with the emphasis on the off-beat, often using variations of the amen break. NO TECHNO, TRANCE, HOUSE, ELECTRO, DUBSTEP, JUMPSTYLE, HARDSTYLE, GOA, DISCO, DOWNTEMPO, TRIP HOP, CHILLWAVE, SYNTHPOP, EURODANCE, INDUSTRIAL, GLITCH, GARAGE, GRIME, OR UK FUNKY!!! (Breaks are okay though because I'm into that too and it's pretty much just slowed down DnB)

    Here's my favorite song at the moment:

    And a little story about how I got into DnB in the first place:

    My cousin Eph has always influenced my musical taste a lot. He got me into ska and punk when I was younger which eventually led to me liking reggae a lot. I believe it was the summer after I graduated high school that he gave me a CD called "Jungle Warfare 3" mixed by Micky Finn and Darren Jay. He told me it was "Oldskool Jungle" and that he used to take tons of ecstasy and see it live back in the 90's when it was big.

    I really dunno what it was that hooked me on it. I've always been a fan of percussion, and I was already into reggae style basslines, so the combination of wicked fast breakbeats and ragga-inspired subs immediately caught my ear. I listened to the shit out of that mix and knew I had to find more of where it came from.

    It was a long time until I really discovered a lot of good jungle the likes of which I heard on that Jungle Warfare mix - the stuff is not popular at all (in the USA anyways) and it's been a real task to collect as many tunes as I have over the years. After burning out on the mix that Eph gave me, I looked around a bit and heard about Pendulum, who had just come out with their debut album Hold Your Colour. That album introduced me to a whole different side of the sound - it was super melodic, modern drum n bass.

    Those were my two introductions to the genre, and the rest is history. I can honestly see myself being 65 and still driving around pumping breakbeats and bass out of my car.

      Most of my buddies in the past used to listen to DnB and alternative kinds of music before they got all hip and trendy (and went mainstream/started to suck). I never really took the effort to get into it I just listened to it whenever I hang out with them. Artists I remember are for example NOISIA, SPOR and Andy-C the latter, from what I heard, was considered a god in the 90's too.

      It somehow reminds me of the resident evil map on ZE.
      He's also got songs like dirty lil slut, rockstar/pornstar etc. etc.. Like I said, I never REALLY got into searching.

        Each song is quite different from the next, so if you don't like the first one, give the next one a chance and so on.

        Camo & Krooked - Breezeblock


        Camo & Krooked - Run Riot


        Camo & Krooked - Far Away (a pre-album release with Further Away being the edited/revamped version of it)


        Camo & Krooked - Further Away


        Camo & Krooked - Get Dirty (Feat. TC)

          I wouldn't count a few of their immersion songs as DnB

          Regardless, who cannot like Immersion?

            Nice tunes dudes! I thought this thread wouldn't get any replies - was pleasantly surprised. CALIVIER, though...you kinda missed the target - I dunno what that music is but it's well outside the realm of DnB.

            Here's a tune that I just discovered recently and encompasses everything I like about jungle. It has the real rock riddim, the stalag 17 bassline, ragga-inspired vocals, and a wicked cut-up amen break drum track:
