But, one more consistant label is the label themsleves. I was at a record
store this afternoon and picked up the familiar green striped cover of
"Talkin' Loud", for Roni Size d'n'b "Walking Windows" not all that
impressed, then checked out some F Communications got Readymade = Dynamo
F079 (mostly French Jazzy House, and one of the few with their website
prominently on the sleve), which was some cool house, hardstep, downbeat
and mellow d'n'b for each track, nothing new in the Mo'Wax section (Headz
of all flavors) then some Ninja Tune picked up "Jazz Breaks" 4 and 5
(breakbeats, tend toards the fringes), flipped through the Yellow section
(more French stuff House, acid-jazz, d'n'b, headz), and found UFO on vinyl,
"3rd Perspective" 2xLP+1 of dub mixes, and the 'Planet Plan' 12". Listened
to a Terry Callier, a little to mellow, even the 4 hero mix, though I could
hear their telltale live bass, the 7 Zero mix was some cool trip-hop, but,
not enough to bite. So, if you have a feel for a particular label like
evil d'n'b from Photek' Science label, you can usually get a good start,
and, pick up new lables from the list aka, Purple Penguin, CTI, and such.
