I have a selection of drum and bass samples from BHK that they were giving away a few years back, I think they sound pretty great. I'm thinking of buying more, but I'd like to search around and see if there is a consensus no brainer for drum and bass.

Suggestions?

I bought BHK's D&B "Rough Connections Vol. 4" a few days ago for the breakbeat loops. It is a fantastic sounding sample pack with universally usable .rex and .wav files, including more than just beat loops. Check out their demo packs for download to get an impression yourself.
Depending on the style you are after, they also have a liquid pack which I am considering buying myself next.

Apart from that, I only know the Zero-G sound packs which have a reputation of similarly high quality. This I do not know first-hand though, only from friends.

The BHK selection I have includes some of Rough Connections v4, they’re all generally useful. I might just buy the full packs.

Warning, very biased opinion here as I am the one selling these packs on my site, so pleaes take that into account on my opinion.

But I am loving some of the releases from some of the artists we have gotten lately.

I was looking at some of those on Splice. Their preset downloading function isn’t as smooth as their sample downloads, but I’ll check it out.

Sample Genie is pretty good. They release a monthly soundpack and once the month is over the download link disappears forever, making the samples somewhat rare.

The samples are made by Nymfo, Hybris, Gridlok, DC Breaks, Arkaik and QZB, plus others.

These free samples by Crispy Dinner are a must have in my opinion: https://freesound.org/people/crispydinner/packs/

The old Zero G samples are great for Jungle, you'll hear a lot of recognisable samples in there.
