    i remember hearing this a long time ago when it was on the charts at it must have been last fall or winter. i liked it a
    lot and can actually still hear it in my head from the sample I heard
    (amazing). Along the same lines, I also liked that Danny Byrd track "Do It

    As far as the Plastic Surgery stuff, I dont know b/c I havent heard it yet.
    But I remember buying a couple compilations last summer... one of them being
    Liquid Funk from Creative Source and the other was Listen Up Jazzy Flavaz on
    Hardleaders I think. I think they were along the line of the dnb stuff
    discussed lately. I thought they both showed a somewhat different direction
    in dnb, but I still was only impressed by one or two tracks off of each
    comp. I listened to them over and over, mixed them, and all that and just
    wasnt impressed. It was like... "ok this is better than the other stuff,
    but still not my thing".

    On some dnb I am almost always impressed with, or least enough to buy, the
    Reinforced Picture Disc is coming back this summer! Reinforced is still
    pretty cool to me... the latest 12"s have been nice in that the drum n bass
    is still tight as hell, then you get some other flavors on them as well.
    I'm not a dnb fan nowadays, but damn their shit is still the bomb (excuse
    the old slang). I've found some older Reinforced stuff from the early 90's
    I'm very proud to own.


    p.s. Last I checked (last year that is), Phuturistic Bluez was putting
    out some tight shit too.
