i think tez or finnie or both do dnb production, they certainly DJ it. giles walker may have played some in the past i dont think he does any more. i've just got one ronnie size/dj krust 12" that i got for 10p in 1up a few years ago so can't help you.

Drum and Bass and Jungle are pretty much the same thing unless you are talking about a when it was made. Breakbeat is such a broad term that it means effectively nothing.

But....

I think Stripey did some 'breakbeat-ish' production, unfortunately he was banned for speaking his brain and dLUDEd makes Drum and bass-y breakbeat stuff and has a band to perform it, but his last post on here was trolled pretty hard and i don't think he has since posted.

I used to love Jungle back in the day, but never really got into the whole clinical production of newer drum and bass. The only breakbeat stuff i like is the garage tempo Bingo Beats stuff and Baltimore club.

Welcome aboard though.

I'm completely the same.

I actually remembered that I did dabble with some beat production before, all just typical amen stuff, with a lot of reggae samples. i might dig about and see if i can upload em somewhere.

YESYES DO IT!

make sure you send me a link i'll be intrigued to hear what it sounds like.

my music is much the same, though i try to give my sound a more "break-core"-ish feel by adding gabber kicks and stuff

I would make d'n'b but I find I have no skill in making music. Not that that stops a lot of people!

I'd recommend The Upbeats, but they're from New Zealand which is quite a long way from Aberdeen. In particular, tracks like 'Girl Gone' and 'Thinking Cap' which are really very different from the typical club stuff.

Maybe I can work this Reason thing out in the new year...

You could try using samples to get yourself started. I've just started using drum samples for my hip hop stuff and it's a lot of fun... heaps you can do to manipulate them. The same is true for any samples. Just a thought.

that's good advise, cheers. I think I tend to get a bit stuck on the quality of the sound production rather than the actual programming so it might help me on my way if I just score myself a dutty beat pack from somewhere...

Hey man, I only had the time to catch the first couple of your tunes but they made me smile. It reminded me of being 16 in the legendary Bish (formally Bubbles nightclub) in Elgin absolutely drenched in sweat after a night of beer-raving.:up:

Nice one. Hit me up on here or on myspace when you've made a page. :up:

Aha! I thought so.

We're ready to play live as of tomorrow (providing my audio interface arrives on time) and would like to as soon as possible!
