Recently, we openly spoke about the issues we saw with Vibe's "20 Drum & Bass Pioneers" list. And while its easy to stand on the soapbox and point fingers, it's another thing to put those thoughts into action and teach by doing. So, we here at DAD came up with our own list. 22 drum & bass producers, DJs, MCs, and labelheads that have truly helped pioneer this sound, be it with ground-breaking production or through their leadership. And while some of the names are mirrored (we didn't say it was ALL bad), we definitely made sure we delved into each artist's path, highlighting why they are part of this elite group. Here are 22 REAL drum & bass pioneers.
