    I've been building up my collection of older tech & neuro recently. I've gotten a pretty good bit but want to go a little deeper. Just wondering what are your fav tracks from that era, especially non-anthem type stuff that wouldn't instantly come to mind.

    to me its all tech but at that time neuro, hardstep, darkstep were all being used as subgenres. Stuff like Teebee, Stakka & Skynet, Konflict, Ram Trilogy, etc.

    neuro came out of techstep around 97-98. It is basically techstep with deeper atmo and synths. More emphasis on basslines which are thick and rolling.

    Teebee - Human Reptile is one of my fav older neuro tracks.

    ya know that all these subgenres are daft.
