quite frankly, today is the day that i have to unsubscribed the drum n bass arena podcast. nothing wrong with drum n bass or anything, i just cant stand someone talking about what new tracks are out after every song, im mostly interested in downloading mixes that a person MCs along with the music not talk in between it. nothing against "the risky" honestly, i as well as many others who stray away from listening to mainstream radio for our own reasons, wouldnt like to archive some old radio recordings where their favorite set of music is played yet have commercials and talking thrown in every so often.
overall, the drum n bass arena podcast is great. ive had and went through every single episode till i recently started cleaning out my hard drive and started to notice "the risky" appearing in january of 09 [you should try listening to his very first one he started talking on compared to how he is now]. in his opinion, a lot of tracks were big tunes, i cant say they all were toe tappers. in my opinion, a handful of the podcasts dated back in 06, 07 and 08 were awesome to download, burn, stick in the cd player of your car/truck, and just bounce to while driving. in fact, those i will still keep [the ones with TKO parameter&miss wendy, dj basher, the quemists, silver&mc dino, shoulpride&mc rhymes, t-phonic, just pretty much any mixes with MCs in'em] in rememberance of our departure. all i can say is good luck, youve lost 1 listener, and maybe in the near future ill be lured back with some more tech'ier and darker track mixes ...with less talk
also if you know drum n bass, and if you didnt have a system but just a good set of computer speakers with 2 knobs; 1 for volume, 1 for the subwoofer, you know to turn your volume up and the sub up 2thirds the way up cause youd want to conserve that sub for future enjoyment. -youd want your speakers to hit, not your neighbors
