Who's in your list? It's pretty hard to say these days, there's a tonne of awesome new cats.

 

 

Think mine's something like this:

 

D

Q

IQ

Fakser

Rafik

 

 

not sure about the last 2. Who've I forgotten? :o May be a top 10 would be more appropriate

Never even heard of Mr Heist.

 

Funny how it's hard to decide between Rafik and Fakster. It's like Rafik started that whole style of scratching but Fakser has surpassed it by a lot these days.

If it's the people I like listening to most in no particular order I'd probably say something like this

Deska
IQ
Symatic
DBeam (retired)
Kurteek

You could substitute any of those for vekked, chinmachine and swiftstyle too, and dopez prob isn't far off!
