    it seems this 2-step thing has thrown up quite a bit of discussion. I'd just
    like to say that I work in a record shop where nearly half the stuff we sell
    is 2-step. I don't like most of the stuff but it simply cannot be dismissed.
    It is is a genre in its own right now. Also there's a couple of things i'd
    like to add.

    What about Johnny L. He's done loads of firin' d'n'b but now he's producing
    in the form of Trusteppers who had hits with Posh Spice, Dane Bowers and
    Brian Harvey.
