I found out prodigy exists earlier this week. Been bumping their stuff non-stop. It reminds me of dub step, only way better because they're using drum breaks and there's no stupid wub-wub-wub

Any dnb fans wanna put me onto some good tracks by other artists?

Here's an example track for ppl that have no idea wtf it is

    Dnb head right here. First off, I'm not sure the prodigy would constitute as a dnb group. Rather they are more akin to nu rave/big beat. If that's the sound your into esp. considering the song u posted, the crystal method, basement jaxx, bt, and the chemical brothers might suit your palate. They all utilize breakbeats around 140 bpms in the same manner. And yes they don't have the wobly baselines like in 🤬 ass dubstep. I'm not a fan of dubstep either.

    But if its really dnb your looking for, then this is where things start to get a little muddy. Because, as it often goes unmentioned, drum n bass is perhaps one of the most varied genres out there. U have so many dj's unleashing so many different sounds under the dnb umbrella that it really depends on what you like. One notable thing they all share in common however is the tempo of the bpm's. It usually clocks in Around 170-200. A step up from the song u posted. As for the different subgenres u have atmospheric dnb with the likes of ltj bukem which has an ambient like sound. Of course there's ragga jungle which is inspired by dancehall and ragga rhythms. Ragga twins own that subgenre. then u have jazzstep which utilizes odd time signatures and jazz scales with people like moving shadow. Then there's also sambabass which is dnb from Brazil with alot of Brazilian music influences. A notable artist is drumagik. From there we can get into more modern styles like neuro funk which borrows heavily from techno and psychedelic trance with the likes of stakka and skynet and photek. Next there is dark step which is just like its name implies very dark sounding with many elements from industrial music. Technical itch, evol intent, and silent killer can give you an idea of what that sounds like. Skullstep takes that even further with frantic and complex drum patters paired with aggressive and crunching synths and noise. Skullstep is heavily influenced by metal. Current value, limewax, and gein are masters of that subgenre. And in spite of all that. There are still some I'm leaving out

    I know I gave u alot but I did that just to show u how heterogeneous and diverse drum n bass really is. So many musical styles have permeated the genre over the years. Hope u can use the dj's I gave u as a starting point. Or if there was just one particular sound or subgenre u were looking for, let me know and I can try to recommend similar artists that may fit your taste
