    I'm putting together a 20 year history of DNB set. The past ten years I'm spoiled for choices, but the decade from 1995-2004, I'm a bit spotty on. Trying to avoid the overplayed classics which I have plenty of. Especially spotty from years 96-01.

    Thanks for your suggestions!

    ^ underrated 98 collab between Ed Rush and Dom.



    ^ absolute stormer of a tune with one of the biggest basslines ever. Switchup at 3 minutes is murderous.



    Lemon Ds best tune by a country mile.



    Best version of Piper, when Optical was a stamp of quality..



    Biggest tune on the best Ram LP...



    ANTHEM ALERT >>> still yet to hear a bassline that rowdy in nearly 15 years of waiting; play this in a dark crowded room with a great soundsystem and you will know.



    ^ good luck finding a copy of this but that bass is just ridiculous on a decent system. 2002 i think



    ^ Spirits best tune IMO. 2004 business, never heard anyone else but me play this, but to me it is up there with the very finest Headz releases



    ^ underrated and forgotten BANGER on Subtitles.



    ^ quality halftime gear from 2003



    ^ Amit's best early tune, pure source direct vibes.

    nice. peel used to play a fair bit of jungle/dnb. first place I heard stuff like photek, source direct etc, also the final track he ever played on the radio was klute...

    random suggestion off the dome from each year

    96 - Trace - Miles High


    97 - Ray Keith - Rare Groove


    98 - Artemis - Sun Voyager

    Sun Stars also from 98 is even better, can't find audio...

    99 - Sonar Circle - Face Off


    2000 - Calibre - Mystic

    probably my fav Calibre tune and wasn't on any albums
