I'm not going to pretend to know anything about Drum & Bass. However, Jumpman has found some dope tunes and I've found a few in random places. However, the big shout out has to go to Oneupmanship, the blog that has pretty much provided my entire (and tiny) Drum & Bass collection. Batch #2 will be comprised entirely of tracks gathered from that blog.
From Memory (Matrix Remix) - Mistabishi (The Golden Banana)
Once again, I know pretty much nothing about this genre, but so far the name that has impressed me the most is Matrix. This song is so beautiful. I feel like this would be a great song to start a set with.
Dreadlock - Future Prophecies
On the heavier side of things... This one's got a great hook.
Fury (Kiro Remix) - Fourward
Pretty gnarly bass in this, I'm down.
Ghetto Blues (Original Mix) - Zyon Base
Super chilled out, relaxed track with really nice chords and a subby bass. Their are aspects of this song that remind me very much of Air.
Toothache (Barletta + Ernold Sane Remix) - The Charlatans UK
I don't know if this actually counts as DnB, but it's pretty much at the same tempo and I feel like it would fit in with a heavy set. Really awesome track though.
Hometown Beef Glory (Bastille Mashup) - Biggie Smalls vs. High Contrast
A mashup I made a while back with a DnB track, actually one of the first DnB tracks I ever got, still one of my favorites. I can't wait for like 10/20 years to pass when people look back and realize how dumb mashups were, saying like "I can't believe people just put songs together, what were they thinking?"
