"A retrospective journey through the sound of early Techstep & Hardstep spanning from 1995 - 1999.
These 4 years were an important time for me personally and also when myself and my friends started hitting the Drum & Bass and Jungle events around London, Kent and Essex.

Sending this out to all the heads that reached and remember the haven that was Atomics in Maidstone, out to Jim and the Pure Science crew every time.
These are some of my favourite tracks taken from my record collection from this era.

Enjoy the selection."
