    What's the first dnb tune you remember hearing and loving. Basically which tunes started your dnb journey?

    Mines this. Remember hearing the intro of this track when i was like 12-13 yrs old, took me ages to find out what it was.

    This isn't actually true DnB but it is very close:


    after that I've heard a few tunes by artists like Aphrodite.
    mainly because of games, Aphrodite's Wobble was in ssx3.
    but then I still wasn't in the scene, I was mainly listening to punkrock bands.
    But then pendulum released Hold you colour and after that I slowly switched from punk to drum and bass.
    I still love slam =)

    On the Midnight Club soundtrack... it was my favourite song on there along with Logistics' Release The Pressure. Was still a few years before I actually got into the genre though.

    This is the first track I remember hearing and someone actually telling it was drum and bass. I discovered it on SSX Tricky on PS2 if anyone remembers it? Brilliant game!

    I remember my brother putting this on in the car when we were going on family holiday. I think it lasted about 10 minutes before everyone told him to turn it off haha, I would've been 8 or 9 years old

    Probably something stupid like Pendulum, or something off a dance compilation a few years ago.

    Hey we all had to start somewhere right?

    I remember this one being a turning point for me:
