Now that NG hasn’t had a decent active DnB club for more than 2 years, I thought it was time for a fresh start. Please don't post here if you don't have anything constructive to add!

Feel free to discuss your favorite artists, tracks, albums, past/upcoming live events and news etc.

The rules are basic, just follow the standard NG rules - and try to make some conversation!

For those of you who are too lazy to download songs right away, here are some radio stations:

Bassdrive
dnbradio
UKBassRadio

And what I listen to:

www.drumandbass.ru

Just click on the 128 and download the file.

Apart from that anyone who is into DnB should check out the following songs.

Pendulum - Blood Sugar
Pendulum - Slam (official video clip)
Pendulum - Another planet (Not the full song, and unrelated vid.)

Also get your hands on the album 'Hold your Colour'.

The songs above are what I call hard DnB. You also have the more calm side of DnB that has a suiting effect.

Well...

I downloaded a file from www.isohunt.com called DnB. It's 4.7GB, contains about 800 songs or so and has a lot of great ones.

I like Pendulum mostly, because I find his style to be unique. Apart from that...John B, Afrodite, Ed Rush (& Optical), London Elektricity, Sky (Kiss my eyes VIP version is a great song) and many others.

Venetian Snares is very cool indeed, ty for introducing me.

And as far as Pendulum tracks go here are my favs:

Slam
Painkiller
PlasticWorld (chill out)
Fasten your seatbelt (Raggae+DnB=sick)
Through the loop
Sounds of life
Girl in the fire
Tarantula (not as much as the others tough)
Out here
Hold your Colour
Another Planet
Streamline
The Terminal
Still grey

Blood sugar (<<This song+kickboxing=sick)

Coma (This song is hypnotizing)

Also it is true that Pendulum uses real drums? My friends say they heard that, tough I never really knew.

Aphex Twin, as you should know, is just one guy. I think you were thinking of the Chemical Brothers. Last time I checked, they weren't DnB.

Yes, Aphex Twin IS DnB. Sure some of his work isn't, but just because a metal band releases an power ballad doesn't make them a shitty hair metal band.

That's it, thank you.

Does anyone listen to Daft Punk? If so, what genre are they in?
Thanks.

yeah I listen to a lot of Daft Punk.

From wikipedia:

Techno, house, acid house and electro styles.
