Calibre's Second Sun should copied in every top 10 between St Germain's Tourist, Radiohead's Kid A, The Roots' Things Fall Apart, Caribou's Swim, Erykah Badu's Mama's Gun, Dday's Heavy Migration, Four Tet's Pause... Breathtaking greatness

I think you can make a strong argument that Calibre is the best drum and bass producer in the history of the genre.

Calibre is a highly talented drum n bass producer! In fact, he ranges among one of my most fav dnb producer! Just check out his discography and unreleased tunes! Highly recommended artist if you're looking for some dope wicked grooves in terms of jungle/drum n bass vibes! He is the best!

He won't let you down, I promise! I'm More Downtempo/Melodic with my DnB, But he offer's a little more than what you ask for!

Wont go into great detail but i'd have to say the stand out drum and bass producer of the 2000s.

Calibre is incredible! He is probably one of the most solid liquid drum and bass producers ever. When I first heard Mr. Majestic with him and High Contrast it literally changed my life.

Calibre is a very talented artist and a relative newcomer in terms of how long the music has been around. Due to the quantity he produces, there are so many amazing unreleased tunes by this guy that people are still crying for, and it is truly a shame that they will probably never see the light of day; this includes one of my all time favourites "Turn". Musique Concrete was a masterpiece and Second Sun also oozed quality. However, and I realise I am treading on very thin ice making this comment, there is a certain trendy clique who will buy absolutely anything he produces on the strength of his name alone. Quality over quantity I say – get all those unreleased gems out there!

One of the great newcomers in drum and bass. Great funky tracks on the debut album "Musique Concrete" on Fabio's Creative Source and tons of singles on various labels. He's extremely productive and there must be at least a dozen of dubplates floating around with this guy at the moment. The quality of production is excellent, however, I believe some of his tracks can get a little too similar. Still a great talent and one to watch out for.
