    Default School me on Techstep and Neurofunk

    Greetings all. I've been out of the DJ scene for a while but am getting back in and need some pointers from all the d&b heads I know are on this forum. So here you go - school me on techstep and neurofunk. What differentiates the two styles and give me some essential listening. The more hardcore, the better. Have at it!

    Honestly feel like subgenre names are a bit retarded. but this is what ppl classify neurofunk as. and it bangs. I call it "good music"

    Duerr is right on the money.

    Techstep and Neurofunk are my favourite's of Drum n Bass so I mainly mix those...

    Some essential listening? I'll give you artists.

    Neurofunk: Noisia, OLD Pendulum (stuff like Vault), Hive, Keaton, Calyx, Teebee, Ed Rush & Optical, Dom & Roland, Spor, Bad Company UK, Konflict, The Upbeats, Prolix, Phace

    Techstep: Technical Itch, Limewax, Cooh, Audio (sorta Neuro sometimes), Gein, Current Value, The Panacea (kinda hybrid Techstep with Hardcore), B-Key, Dylan, Counterstrike, Raiden

    I know it's a lot but it's good.

    Also on the shameless self plug I have tech/neuro DnB mix up on my soundcloud, link in my sig.

    Thanks for the responses. Killer mix Citizen! I agree that a lot of the time subgenres get a little out of hand but they are useful when there's a BIG difference between the styles i.e. liquid vs. techstep/neurofunk. Much more specific than just saying drum n bass.

    Thanks man, glad I could help.
    And I hear you on the differences... try mixing a liquid song with some techstep and chances are people will look at you like you're crazy And yeah, far more specific than saying just DnB, I'm constantly surprised by the sheer variety of sounds there are within the genres let alone the subgenres lol.

    It's just like saying "I'm into rock" vs. "I'm into death metal" or "I'm into indie rock." However it does get out of control when you start investigating all the death metal sub-subgenres like Troll Metal...
