Excuse the shameless plug but I play mostly stuff like this on our radio show
All corners of dnb but with more of a push to the sounds of yesteryear with proper breaks and bass to make your teeth vibrate
You can check out the recordings of the shows here:
You should also check out the stuff we release on 36 Hertz Recordings as again its in the kind of vibes your talking about
Audio for all of our releases are here:
Again sorry for the shameless self promo :)
Circles-Adam F---first tune i heard ,and --ten years later........
and any of the old metalheadz stuff---pure class--
for friends who like heavy metal or heavy stuff you can go the darker route---Digital+Spirit,renegade hardware stufff--loxy+ink, b-key, universal project ,Raiden etc.....
or just make him a bad co mix of tunes if thats the stuff he wanted
Dieselboy's - The Dungeonmaster's Guide
Extraordinary mix. I listened to it like 100 times
Edit: DnB I prefer nowadays.. basically anything with Jazz/soul influence. You can only listen to an amen break so many times before you want something more you know. Absolutely none of the new stuff. Basically stuff like this
There is currently a documentary on the American jungle scene in the works. From my interaction with these guys over the internet, they seem to be really cool. They are traveling all around the country over the next few months capturing the jungle scene as it exists today. I'm sure they will be hitting up the north east so keep an ear out.
He is probably stealing more samples and claiming them as his own: http://www.freesound.org/samplesViewSingle.php?id=13809
"Also mistabishi assured hospital records he used samples for printer jam that he himself had personally made, he said he sampled various epson and hp printers, only for hospital records to be contacted by a website that provides royalty free samples to complain that mistabishi had in fact used samples downloaded from their site and not given them a mention... when faced with the truth mistabishi finally admitted this was what he had done and he had lied previously."
Or fake DJing:
Thanks for the downvote and the insult. The one defining feature about dnb is that it sits around the 170-180 bpm zone. The tune you linked is a good remix, but it's not dnb. It sits at around 130 bpm and is closer to Electro House rather than anything. It is especially not dubstep.
Edit: Beatport lists it as Breaks.

It... is made up of 3 songs, though, right? "Inner City Life," "Pressure," and "Jah". Some releases have them separated, even.
Fucking Spor. Soooooooo good if you like the hard Dark stuff, also check out Noisia too
If you want a really good compilation album, check this one out. its been something I first got back in 09 and I still listen to it regularly. its got a lot of diverse stuff on it too.
https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00I3LV11K/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_KT5KBbHNHTPBD I had a pair for 3 years, loved them, they finally broke (my fault) and I bought another pair as they're cheaper than they were and the quality is damn good. Really good in ear plugs as well they never fall out even when I'm running etc
So why is Deathwing the background image for this video?
because he never made a track called "find a way" that was titled by himself, but he did produce a track with Jafrosax, Akira and Deeizm that was released in Japan only https://www.discogs.com/Jafrosax-Remix2/release/7618273
the track you want is "Jafrosax - Find A Way (Akira Remix)"
you can find it on ebay etc
Yesss, thanks for the opportunity /u/geekcroft. Hope y'all like the diversity in this mix! It's kinda my thing :)
Here is the 192kbps download link via dnbshare (82.15mb)!
Also, if you enjoyed this mix, I highly recommend my Renegade Hardware contest entry. Same style of mixing and similar tracks.
QO - Atari X EP
Sam Binga - Nuh Chat EP
Eastcolors (Hybris, Noel, Traffic) - Could Be / Things Inside (Hybris Remix) / Dreams
Mikal - WHERE THEY AT / THE CHOSEN / CONTROL OF PEOPLE
Beta 2 & Zero T - Election / The Edge / What's Wrong
Xanadu - THROUGH THE OORT CLOUDS
I counted on the Heart Drive series alone, and Dbridge has enough unreleased songs to put out an album. Not including the most recent podcast since we don't have a track list yet.
dBridge - Splice
dBridge - Lost Signal (interlude)
dBridge - Avery Glitch
dBridge - Metrodrone
dBridge - A Love I Cant Explain
dBridge - No Name Soul
dBridge - Untitled
dBridge - I'm Feeling Cold
dBridge - Zerone
dBridge - For Here
dBridge - Evolvent
I really want to see him release another album, but apparently he's scrapped it at least twice over now. Something about the music becoming too personal and not geared towards playing out. Plus I think he's felt apprehensive about release a vocal heavy album.
But man, I love his vocals. He's been getting more and more bold with them actually. It was calibre that inspired him to start singing for his own tracks.
I can't really complain because he has so much going out right now. Bad Company, Heart Drive, The Binary Collective, Module Eight, Velvit, Running Exit Records.
But one day I hope we see that second album of his.
For the record, Survival and Commix have both released "Unreleased" compilation albums.
Thats the flipside, Certain Methods. Its definetly that named track... heres the remix https://www.deezer.com/track/515388542?utm_source=deezer&utm_content=track-515388542&utm_term=2406520164_1556132457&utm_medium=web
Fokuz have a good show called "Soul Sessions" that they put out every now and then, some good stuff on there. Link
Such a great track. Haunting atmosphere, smashing amens, and a great sample. What's not to love about this track?!
Not sure on the female sample, but here is the sample list
My favourite drum n bass track, it blew my mind when I found out they sampled David Bowie: http://www.whosampled.com/sample/108565/Dom-%26-Roland-Can't-Punish-Me-David-Bowie-Let's-Dance/
And yet sounds so different!
A true example of what sampling should be.
/u/Jesh1978 has tons of cool mixes.
Here is one https://www.mixcloud.com/jeshdnb/live-dnbradiocom-10-01-2016/
you can find more if you look through is profile. He always has super cool track selections of the more unknown artists if you're in to that.
It has a few nice clean drum break sections that people sampled and used in their own music.
For jungle, dnb, etc. that typically meant getting pitched up because before timestretch that was how to get the break up to higher tempos for jungle and dnb, etc.
You can hear it sampled at slower tempos in hip hop, breaks, all over the place.
It's like that for other breaks, music, movies, etc. Just something I got interested in. Check out junglebreaks.co.uk for more breakbeats that have been sampled heavily, and check out this list of who sampled Think.
Just being nit picky.... it's a Zeppelin song but the literal audio sample is by Goldbug who covered Zeppelin's Whole Lotta Love.
But I know nothing about how clearances work, so I'm sure you're right about RAM needing to go through Zeppelin rather than Goldbug.
https://www.mixcloud.com/radiofm/signall_fm-792014/ - Check this out. A year ago Slovak radio dnb show Signall_FM featured a 2 hrs long set consisting exclusively of S.P.Y.'s tracks. He's one of the best producers out there
I believe it did, but I'm not sure it's digital. Here's a link the the vinyl.
I've noticed that there are several tracks they've done that only got vinyl releases. I don't think Mistakes ever made it to digital land.
Under Another Sky by Cern came out through Dispatch. I'm enjoying it.
Also Theory of the Avantegard - Cosmos.
The Invaderz' album sampler is out; if you're a DJ and want to get the best track off the release, you can check it out here.
But to be honest, the whole album, which is coming on 3rd November, is gonna be my favourite of the year.
Bungle - Down to Earth is really good. And Marky's Master Plan (though it's more of a compilation album).
Relevant: Huge list of Jungle/DnB Breaks with WAVs.
WhoSampled is also a good tool for finding out which breaks an artist used.
Get in touch with Rave Archive -- he might have some good ideas.
Also, if you're on Twitter, @uncledugs and the #RCFF will know what to do with that shit :-)
I would definitely get a community radio set up!!
Sidenote: he co-hosts the Liquid Tones podcast, which has some good tunes on it alongside a healthy dose of BANTER!
History of Our World Pt. 2 got much play in '90s. I later got History of Our World Pt. 1; not one to be missed either.
This is probably not the correct answer: Smooth and jazzy? When I think liquid for whatever reason I think LTJ Bukem Promised Lands which was from 1996. Which makes it 20 years ago.
Which is why this is probably the incorrect answer. Andy C did a liquid set for the ball drop in 2008 (NEC) and it didn't sound like what I thought liquid was at all. But smooth and jazzy pretty much. This is a liquid mix from 2012 that demonstrates what I'm saying well.

Sorry, will this one do?
I got this pair of high fidelity headphones on Amazon over a year ago after not using earplugs and getting bad ringing in my ears for 2 days after a show at the Brixton Academy in London and the earplugs have been well worth it.
The stems of this pair are short enough that no one (even right next to you) will be able to tell that you're wearing them, but still easy enough to take out.
In general, I would highly recommend a pair of hifi ones after trying the foam ones for a while myself. The foam ones will tend to sound like you are underwater because they lower the high end too much so you won't be able to hear the all important drums as they are intended. A solid case also helps so you can put them on your key ring and not forget them when you go out.
Buffalo charge dangargan talkin'
Again, go early slash to the garden
The bar breaking
Can’t stop when you’re zoning
We up the end ting
Tycho tech with your crown and capture
Your man type takeover
When you deal with
Yeah gee tell it and sling it
You won’t can’t get a grip
Then head out innit
That's embarrassing, my bad!
Here's a link to the whole show.
And here's a link to my dropbox, where I've uploaded just the Virus Mix.
Thanks for the heads up, let me know if these don't work.

My kind of DnB: SPY, Alix Perez, Calibre, Lenzman, Spectrasoul, etc.
An the guy who mixed that runs this tremendous label https://soundcloud.com/repertoiresound
Many of who's tunes are featured in my mix.
You can find approx 1 million of his other mixes here
Sneaky sneaky, the way Mr Happy should be dropped :D.
I do have a Soundcloud, but I never upload mixes there because of their strict copyright policy and the limited upload minutes. I do have a mixcloud with a few mixes. I recommend my Renegade Hardware contest entry.
Thanks for the reply, and all the info given by you three. I only started mixing a couple of days ago, but have been listening to dnb for some time.
Finding it quite hard to do the levels on the fly, especially without a controller (just using mouse and keyboard on tractor). Guess that comes with practice, which i will be doing a lot of from now on.
Done a third mix now, its a little longer and (i think) a little better than the previous. Have a listen if you've got a spare few mins:
>Spanner German, winding tool, from spannen, to stretch, from Middle High German, from Old High German spannan; see (s)pen- in Indo-European roots.
> Circles-Adam F---first tune i heard ,and --ten years later........
Holy fuck. I've had this tune on the hard drive of a computer I owned since God knows when, probably the late 90s.
TICK TICK TICK Tick Tick tick tick tick................
FYI, you can listen to them here every first friday of the month at 21.30 CET+1
they usually have a studioguest from one of the events happening in Vienna on that night, most of the time from Vollkontakt, Mainframe or Flex, plsu they throw out tickets for the gig ( guestlist +1)- only interesting for vienna residents though as DJ's most of the time play 2-4 hours after their studio time ends, plus they have a guest mix most of the time- next guests/guest mix is announced at the end of the show most of the time.
you can download previous shows/listen to via mixcloud's streaming service.- it's missing the last few shows though,
Pendulum b2b Bad Company, Feb 2006
Ed Rush & Optical and Ryme Time Live @ ViRAM WMC 2003
Muffler - August 2008 Promo Mix (Can't find it hosted anywhere, hopefully someone else knows where it can be found)
I have some sennheiser cx475's (http://www.sennheiserusa.com/earbuds-earphones-sound-fashion-fun_505428) and I absolutely love em! Only like 40 at best buy (http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Sennheiser+-+Massive+Bass+Earbud+Headphones/2178616.p?id=1218312949230&skuId=2178616&st=sennheiser&cp=1&lp=3). Would definitely recommend.
For sure man, saw Calibre just before new year and had been down on him since Sun & Bass as really didn't feel his set there at all but he absolutely demolished that night. Super smooth line-up for Friday and not seen Vanguard Project play as Vanguard Project before.
One I'm looking for the most is Calibre - No One Gets To You. Heard it a whole ton second half of last year and always left the room MELTED but only just got hold of the ID.
Starts 1:12:30 on here. Imagine that on a sweaty 4am vibe <3
The problem is that the back catalogue stuff on the physical disc is mixed together, while digital versions get the old tracks unmixed as well as the mixed version.
For the digital version, it seems to be £7.99 on 7digital, or £6.99 from Drum & Bass Arena. Dunno if they're going to convert that into Euros when you check, however.
Yeah man, Riddim Wise LP is the album they released ages ago (before the 2009 release), and I think it's pretty amazing. I've never listened to the one before that though. Buy it, pirate it, whatever, just make sure you listen to it!
Here's a slick Amen Break sample pack if you're looking for one.
Edit: And here is a little break I threw together. Amens are sweet.
Nice mix man, love the heavier side of dnb. And big-up from Devon, although I no longer live there due to work.
If you're interested in the more liquid side of things too, I recorded a new mix at the weekend you can listen to here: https://www.mixcloud.com/burrelldnb/liquid-sessions-002-spring-2015/
Yes! Love Seba. There's a Seba only mix on youtube I regularly rinse when I'm working - shit takes me on a journey. Defs grabbing this. Worth checking Seba – Jungle Music / Cloudless. Really feeling those 2 at the moment.
The abstractions bristol podcast series is fantastic. Other stuff I'd recommend has already been posted.
My favourites of those would be #20 by J.Robinson & Shima and #24 by Clarity
Really nice work, this is wicked - Wired my favourite; is this your first release? Can't find much on you two..
>Finland's Trisector & Infader return to Hustle since there debut on the label "Does Not Compute" from last years "Definitions" LP.
Aha! Here for those that want it....and you should want it...
Have you done much else, because these are the only tracks you have on your soundcloud and the production is pretty good. I take it your not new to this?
Mixed just those tracks. They sound good together.
Have a listen to these two mixes, see what you think of some of the tunes in here, might be a good starting point.
Both are my mixes, taking a modern approach to some killer older sounds. Hopefully they'll help.
These are really good, I've had two or three pairs over the last seven years or so.
I just got a new pair of Audio Technica M-50s and got a bundle with a Bluetooth receiver. Super awesome headphones with nice, balanced but punchy bass. The battery on the Bluetooth lasts about 8 hours.
if they're evven remotely a reader, Renegade Snares is an incredible book about the history of Drum & Bass. Highly recommended.
Hi ya mate, thanks for tuning in and it's rewarding to know you appreciated it. I'm trying to get on Tune In however they've closed new applications so that's gonna take a while. Were available on many online radio directory apps and were also available via Alexa using our Envy F M skill which is downloadable here https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B0BHHX4XB5
Are you looking to DJ on Envy? I'd be keen to get you up and live if you were up for it. Have a think.
It would be great to hear back from you.
Man there's a lot of interesting takes in this thread...
You were correct in your first assumption. Originally an offshoot of hardcore rave music, jungle was rebranded to drum and bass both to accommodate its evolution to newer styles and to move away from potentially racist connotations or social stigmas.
Nowadays, jungle usually refers to the old-school 90s-style which is often heavily influenced by dub/reggae, whereas d&b is a general umbrella term for the different styles like techstep, liquid, jump-up, etc.
Wikipedia actually has a decent summary of how it progressed. I also recommend checking out the book All Crews if you want a deeper dive from some of the original junglists/D&B-heads.
Empire of the Sun - We are the People (Sub Focus Remix) was included on Hospitality Presents: This Is Drum & Bass CD back in 2009. The digital version contained all the single tracks plus the 2 continuous mixes 👍
You can still buy the release via iTunes and Amazon
Here's the link to enable the Kool London skill
It's Not Over (Influx UK's Dig Deeper Remix)
Not sure if this counts but this track got me hooked on the genre when High Contrast dropped it on his first Essential Mix. Although its not the genre I can go out to see in person (due to annoying ass MC's), I haven't looked back since I heard that mix.
I'm quite fond of Mixcloud. It's my first stop to listen to mixes, some labels also have their own channel there.
A nice feature is that it often shows what track is playing.
in general check out techstep and some drumfunk, like technical itch, dom and roland, ed rush and optical. For new stuff look at samurai music (Presha, Ancestral Voices, etc.) - heavier dnb with tasteful genre-bending, rupture (Mantra, Double O, Djinn and so on) - new take on jungle with deeper, heavier and more atmospheric beats.
This is decent mate some good tunes & smooth transitions! I would use SoundCloud or Mixcloud or similar rather than YouTube though as you lose a lot of audio quality.
Check out my stuff if you like.
I only heard this one a few months ago on this Fred V & Grafix mix
I feel like an idiot for not noticing it when it was new, but then again I probably should have listened to the entire Sub Focus album...
Gonna shamelessly plug my own mix because it's a collection of my favorite jazz influenced tunes. The tracklist is included, check out all those artists for more similar d&b!
I was really forward to this! That sucks man, I hope you can recover fast from this. Fuck those guys.
I reposted https://www.mixcloud.com/geekcroft/rdnb-iconic-tracks/ again so we can rinse that meanwhile
A few of these tracks are my own, hope you enjoy, take a listen, here's a link to the soundcloud to download as well.
Good track selection. What beat mixing there was, was ok but most of it was just fade from one track to another. If your gonna swap from dnb to drumstep try an use some tracks that half an half so you can go from each bpm smoother. Or keep all the drumstep tracks together and have a track at the start with a dnb intro and the last one be one with a drumstep start and a dnb end like this one. https://soundcloud.com/metrik/flightwave
Haha I know, I often wonder that myself.. Possibly because I also get to play at nights like this :P
Well me and Huffa will be there if you do change your mind ;)
they're planning more gigs, there's a dBridge interview with Jon Kennedy where he mentions this.
https://www.mixcloud.com/jonkennedy/radio-1-prague-cz-april-22nd-2016/ brief interview is about one hour in, not sure of exact time sorry.

I have a Mixcloud account if you fancy checking it out. My most recent mixes are better, the older ones are terrible I must admit, but ever since about 2 or 3 years ago I've really improved if I do say so myself!
It's an hour longer than you wanted - but This one of mine goes in hard and doesnt really ease off.
102 tracks over 4 decks - live on DNBradio.com.
Bart Icus, Chris Maxey & Keiran Lomax.
Discogs is great for finding out about artists and their aliases.
In this instance, I had no clue Chris Maxey was Xedos, who had a release on Street Beats in 1996
Love this song!!!! It's a lesser known track that was exclusively released with the Japanese version of the Reality Checkpoint LP - https://www.discogs.com/Logistics-Reality-Checkpoint/release/1271421

Newgrounds has an audio portal with a DNB section. Before I had any concept of labels, I used to download all my shit from there.
A lot of it isn't great production wise, but there are always gems. I still love Snayk's stuff, it's super cool industrial.
I follow this guy on mixcloud and hes got some great 3 and 4 deck mixes. Try:
Dark and Soulful
and: DNB Iconic
In fact, the Iconic mix is what brought me to this sub. :)
Altitude (Crissy Criss 7 Hour Mix): https://www.mixcloud.com/crissycriss/altitude/
Not only will that get you acquainted with technical mixing but help you find more dnb music you may not have heard before
This EZ Rollers mix from '99 has always been one of my top jazzy drum and bass mixes. Listening to it now, it's still so good
EZ Rollers - Live in Vienna
It's Oldschool Hardcore - https://www.discogs.com/4-Hero-Cookin-Up-Ya-Brain-Wheres-The-Boy/release/6131
I won't deny this is a DnB precursor but this track fits much more comfortably in a different era. With its sped up, non-pitched shifted vocals this is just about as hardcore rave as you can get.
The roots of DnB do indeed lie in these tracks, but this is not DnB. If you don't believe me, try and mix it with DNB track from 1996/7 and see how far that slider has to go to make it blend, and hear how ridiculous it sounds.

and heres the event page on fb https://www.facebook.com/events/381674351920325/ and theres also an undersound radio group page if you wanna watch for more shows or see links to djs that have played. They run the show every friday at 11pm mst :) message me if you want a shout out too haha :P
Also study up on loop slicing/rearranging, a la the Amen break. Tight, creative, and just plain good drum edits make the track. No drum tracks that are just looped bars, please.
Earplugs are a must. I've got Alpine ones, there's three in the pack in case you lose one and there is three different levels of inserts with them.
First DnB track I ever heard was ParagonX9 - Defection. The one that made me fall in love with the genre was Noisia - Exodus.
