    to :hype:
    Probly gunna be an obvious answer to the first, but
    "Are you gonna do a dubplate killaz 3 this year?"
    "When is "Busted" by Hazard coming out?"
    "Do you, yourself enjoy back to back sets or to rinse a set on your own???"

    Ask Colin "Alpha Omega" Lindo why he stopped making cool 'ardkore flavored stuff. He made some great stuff like the "Countdown EP" and Armour001 but then he and everyone else just stopped dead with making DnB that I like.

    Question For Hype: Why did you decide to set-up Ganja-Tek as it's a complete contrast to what sound True Playaz have pushed in the past?

    Question for Hype: Will more artists be lined up for Ganja-Tek or is it solely an output for Prolix?

    Question for Alpha Omega: Where the fuck have you been!!

    Question for Alpha Omega: What do you think of the current state of the scence & the rumours of labels screwing over their artists?

    That Ganja-Tek question is not a good idea, he's answered it in anger on the Trueplayaz site and it will probably piss him off.

    Ask Hype if he would still play on a pirate station or free party.

    Also ask him what his favourite Funk track is

    To :hype:

    Do you ever regret choosing to play and produce drum and bass when you could be a lot richer and more famous playing house or electro? - provocative

    Do you see yourself playing drum and bass when you're 50? (perhaps combine with Mesh)

    How does your dog react to loud drum and bass?

    What would you suggest for a home listening drum and bass setup?

    Do you think drum and bass has become too insular ahd hermetic and do you think new producers should look for inspiration outside of the genre or inside it?

    Is unpaid internet downloading killing drum & bass labels and artists?

    Do you read internet forums and do you care about what is said on you?

    Do you think internet forums help & encourage new artists as well as higher production values or simply serve to negate and discourage new talent?

    Do you think the trainspotters ruin drum and bass for the others?

    What is your favourite drum and bass memory?

    What is your favourite venue to play?

    If you had to pick five dnb tunes, not from your labels, that you would take to a desert island, what would they be.

    If you had to pick five nondnb?

    Which artist, outside of the dnb scene, not necessarily music, do you admire the most?

    What would you say to upcoming producers and djs to encourage them?

    Ohh and ask hype why he didn't play Bassrush 3 or 4 in Baltimore/DC in the late 90s?

    I bought a ticket to this event because I wanted to see him. I can prove that I have the ticket. Can hype pay me back for the ticket? ;)

    yeah and ask him why he didnt show for a Perth gig in 96, and again in 98. I'm sure he'll remember.

    I'd like to know what he thinks of the neuro/techy sound, as last time I saw him was on a bill with BSE and the contrast was stark. Was also quite fun.

    also, is he aware we have a smiley in his honour.
