All Time Best DnB Producers would personally probably have2 be

Rob Playford/Goldie timeless is just so well done

Dillinja as a producer he can do so much with so little. forgot some of the tripe he's come out with, cybrotron and before is quality....for quality of production, not many can touch this man

Rebel MC/Tribe of Issacher/X-Project, pretty much every release on Congo Natty records is A1. LIONxx and RASxx are banging tunes

Although he's my favourite DJ and I love him as a label-boss - he doesn't really do a shitload of production. Didn't he like release his first single in like '96 and then his first solo album (Journey Inwards - which is not exactly d'n'b) almost 10 years later.

If it was favourite DJs or favourite labels, then he'd definately be my No.1.

Bukem hasn't done much without the Intense boys or Artemis. "Switch" is his first tune nearing release in tiiiiiiime.

Bukem's "Journey Inwards" was a pretty good reflection on the artist and the DJ, I thought.

actually, his first single was released around 1990-1 and the LP dropped in 2000. so you weren't far off mate! :)

"Logical Progression", "Teach Me To Fly" (With DJ Trace) and others came out before any GLR tunes though.

Mystic Moods was Phil Wells, aka Basement Phil, aka X-Pansions, aka many other aliases.. who started Basement Records with his brother and a few others.

he and Jack Smooth were also Earl Grey, Fast Floor, Electronic Experienced, Hedgehog Affair, Smooth But Hazardous, etc.

I think it was just an artist pseudonym for a while, so he could put out those deep atmospheric style things. I don't think Phil Wells is doing much to do with D&B these days.

last I heard (and this was some time back..), he was helping his brother out with making house tunes. garage and deeper stuff, maybe on the breakbeat tip. not too sure to be honest!

the last Mystic Moods release I saw/grabbed was back in 1997.
