    Major tunes by year

    As the regulars know I've been putting a lot of work into the wiki article (s) on dnb.

    For the history of dnb article I've been working on a list of tracks and releases by year - based on their significance - musically & popularly & commercially & historically. That is how the affected future production trends, how popular they were to listeners, how they sold and how they affected dnb history

    I found the BBC has already put together a nice list that goes like this:

    10 To Get In (and remix 20 To Get In) - Shut Up and Dance '89
    Spliffhead / Hooligan 69 - Shut Up and Dance '90

    The list is a bit biased and is lacking quite a few tunes.

    So here is a chance for the dnb afficiandos here to show off (I had a different thread up about this a while ago but it had disappointing results).



    Please give your suggestions for tracks for a given year with the full name of the track and artist and year so I don't have to rack my brain 'on what you're on about.

    Please do not treat this thread as an excuse to slag off TC, Clipz or Pendulum. Or techstep or jump-up or liquid or darkside for that matter.

    Just some significant tracks. No need to argue as its hardly going to be a definitive or exhaustive list - just I want it to be a quality one.
    I'll be back one day. Beware.
