Mine was back to the oldschool in may 2005, ahhhh such good memories, i went with 3 mates and we all tried some double red cherrie E's. First time i had ever done pills, was a phat night. Then i tried DRUM AND BASS. I loved the atmosphere in KOKO that night with back to the oldschool, but you just can't beat a drum and bass rave. Wait a minute, you CAN. A rave which has dnb in one tent and raindance in the other! :pimp:

When and where was yours?

I first heard drum and bass, in the knowledge that it was drum and bass rather than just heavy dance music, on October 15th 2003. My mate asked me to copy him two CDs for a mate; one was Andy C the other Hype. I was instantly hooked and, by pure fluke, two days later there was a big event on South Parade Pier called Reaction. Same venue as Breakneck by the way. The line-up was Keaton, Mampi Swift, Hype and Andy C with Skibadee. Hype didn't turn up so Andy played for two hours. Since that day I've been to as many events as possible and rarely miss a Breakneck, I can't get enough of it!

music first at the venue in birmingham. the club had that bouncy dance floor business, fucking amazing. i think it was basically a back 2 basics night with jb and spice playing, along with a load of the other b'ham kool fm crew (RIP Kool in brum).
