    I actually put a lot of time and thought into what tune I use as an intro for a set.
    Some of my faves-
    Shimon - Hands Up
    Fresh - Scream
    Kenny Ken - Everyman (Modified Motion remix)
    Subfocus - Special Place
    Modified Motion - Stranger Things
    Pendulum - Axle Grinder
    Evol Intent - Middle Of The Night

    *********************reincarnate - skynet******************************

    just a heavy bastard with atmospheric intro then just a filthy drop and choppy beats.

    generally i like to start with tracks with more musical build ups rather than a few bars of a drum beat.
