    If Drum & Bass becomes popular music (I'm not talking top 40's popular)... I dunno, I think part of me would die. On the one hand it would mean I could probably get a bunch of gigs easily, I love mixing Drum & Bass... but on the other hand then all the hipsters would get into it and ruin it, then they start thinking they know everything about the genre... first they took some of my style (I love my plaid lumberjack shirts, so warm...) and now they're gonna take my music?! Where do we draw the line with these damn Hipsters!?!?!

    As for the wobbles? Nothing wrong with a wee bit of wobble, but I agree with you, a lot of it is just becoming excessive.

    dnb was really popular in the dance music scene at one point. minus the hipsters, it attracted the same type of people that dubstep does now.... basically a big sausage party consisting of all the boys that like noisey music they think will scare all the yuppies away.

    hipsters are no more ridiculous than candy-kids and junglists from back when dnb was still really in. my opinion is anyone who is 21+ and still attaches themselves to some type of highschool label is some sad shit lol. that whole sticking to one scene and making it your identity is total kids stuff.

    Ahhh..... how many times I have heard this in my illustrious career. This will ALWAYS be the case with any scene that gains any speck of credibility unfortunately mate. In they pop and suck all of the life out of it until it has been replicated and watered down on every facet of popular culture (Dubstep the new case in point, at least in the UK anyway) and then everyone forgets about it for a few years then there's a massive resurgence and boom, repeat from step one. The cyclical nature of, well, most things I suppose?

    I really hope Breakbeat comes back, loved all those lot, Plumps, Meat Katie, Rene Pilgrim, Stantons, Freestylers, DJ Friendly, Ali B, Evil Nine....the list goes on. Obviously some new blood would be good although I have a sneaky suspicion that you may be seeing some wobble with Breakbeat if it resurges?

    evil nine have put some housey stuff out lately, plumps have done a couple of remixes and released a few things this year. think the stantons have done something that sounds like everything else they make. and i'm sure the freestylers are still about somewhere working on another 'clown step' classic

    Yeah I bought the evil nine album with the Zombies all over it, pretty poo to be fair, took it back and got something else, really didn't get on it but the remixes I had heard were ok.

    Plumps did that Hightops tunes which was good, haven't heard anything recently though?

    Freestylers are mental, always put a smile on the face. They were at a mates party in Exeter after they played a gig down there and they were just up for getting battered, well funny!!!
