French Hip-hop! Huzzah!

I know at least one person here likes French hip-hop, and she hooked me up with Bams Vivre ou mourir, which is pretty good.

My French Hip-hop selection is small but I like:
IAM (Who isn't?)
Double H
Alliance Ethnik
DJ Pone (I will forever remain wowed at this guys 1997 DMC World Championships performance)

Anyone got some favorites to add?

where is everybody!?
anyway, has anyone else heard the collaboration between MF Doom and Danger Mouse (it's been leaked for a while on the internet, but still). for those who have, what do you guys think of the adult swim skits? they were annoying me after a while but you can't deny that overall the beats are solid.

favourite sounds/types of music This community appealed to me (just caught it mentioned through the comments of a friend's LJ) due to the nature of the name, I'm this low genrefication fool myself. I'm an awfully bad music junkie; spent years continually building up my collection (my LJ unfortunately serves as a semi-shopping blog, for instance), and decisively don't limit myself to particular genres. What I'm well versed at? Hip hop of all sorts is my forte. I love my funk. Love my soul. Love my jazz. Love my metal. And a lot of things inbetween.

Hope to contribute well to this community (although, see subject headline above). Examples of the kind of stuff I buy (and the entries that accompany them) are:

This isn't intended to sound like an advertisement for my own journal. Just want you to know where I'm coming from without being too lengthy and overbearing :)

Ok, so to date, my biggest adventures in exploring electronic music have touched on artists such as postal service, figurine, dntl, fantastic plastic machine, pizzicato 5, and small amounts of air, basement jaxx, and fatboy slim.

I have recently started dating a guy who is heavy into drum and bass. I want to start getting into it too, but am at a loss as for where to start, who to check out, who even makes it.

My musical tastes generally lie in the electic, and away from the mainstream. Please, point me in the direction of interesting/good/unique/awesome/non mainstream/worth listening to Drum and Bass.

Thank you kindly.
