    My drummer has a live cd recording of LTJ Bukem with intense, and it's all real musicians playing drum'n'bass/liquid funk kind of stuff, and it's great. But I can't find anything out about them, or about anything similar. Does anyone know of any groups that play that kind of music? I already know about squarepusher, what others are out there?

    Doug Wimbish and the dude from Living Colour did a drum'n'bass thing called Headfake, the CD's supposed to be out this year (if it's not already out).

    Get Squarepusher's Hard Normal Daddy

    It's like Weather Report on acid.

    Cheers for the suggestions :D I've got hard normal daddy :) It's really good, but entirely wigout :D Will hopefully be seeing squarepusher live quite soon. Saw him at Reading Festival (he wasn't a happy bunny). I'm just looking for something a little less crazy. This stuff I heard by intense was really good though, like drum and bass, but funky as well, just drums, bass and guitar. Sounds really good, and there's a minute long slap solo in one of the tracks :D
  7. Check out stuff on the Good Looking and Looking Good record labels. That's LTJ Bukem's label. The "Journey Inwards" CD is very good. His stuff is generally more tuneful and jazz influenced than other drum and bass / jungle stuff.

    Certain Goldie tracks were recorded using Mel Gaynor (Simple Minds) on drums. The Roni Size stuff is good but more up-tempo.

    Check out The New Deal -- they're on hiatus now, but they have two excellent studio albums and a bunch more live discs. http://thenewdeal.ca

    Lake Trout does some live d'n'b too. Some Club D'Elf or Philadelphia Experiment tracks lean toward d'n'b.

    Corwin, he's talking drum n' bass as a genre, techno.

    But hey, I can't blame ya, that's what I use to think it was too. Oi, genres, what a mess.
