    Over a DnB Blog we have started a new feature titled "DnB Blog Dialogue". Each month we going to start off with a topic and we want to hear your stories / opinions / feedback. The first topic is 'how did you first discover drum & bass?'. I know it's slightly cheeky starting a thread on here and asking you to veer away from the forum to comment but if you would participate it would be much appreciated :2thumbs:

    I was hoovering the front room one summer morning about 15 years ago, a Saturday it was. When I lifted up the carpet, there it was. Drum & Bass had been under my rug all along.

    I used to be into heavy metal and rap music. I joined the Army and got stationed in Hawaii. Not a lot of concerts over there. One of my friends took me to a rave and I ate two pills. Drum and bass was in the side room at that party. I kept getting separated from him, but I kept finding my self in that room. I remember sitting by the speakers and my legs kept shaking uncontrollably to the beat. To get them to stop, I basically had to keep holding them down. Ever since then, dnb has been my favorite music. Hive was one of the DJs at that party.
