    Was too young to appreciate the 90's for what it was, but I know I missed out on an insane decade! :(

    Fuck yeah!

    I really miss the late 90's scene... that was such a good time for dnb that has never been recreated..... DnB just isnt the same at all. I really feel sorry for people who only came into the scene after 2000 you really, really missed out...

    Vinyl shops were still booming..hanging out in Massive in Oxford listening to Renegade Hardware, Prototype, Virus and Metalheadz tracks...

    The dancefloor side and the dark/tech side were much more closely linked than they are now. You'd go to big raves and hear Prototype getting caned alongside True Playaz stuff.. much more united than today. And Jump Up didnt have mid range nokia n bass sounds

    That era was so sick ...

    you had every big label at the top of their game, V, Full cycle, True Playaz, Headz, (although Headz prob peaked a bit earlier), Prototype, Virus.... all putting out sick 12s constantly... Quality control was tighter!
