    I'm just curious, that's all. A friend of mine got me into drum n' bass back in the summer of '93. He was playing some hardcore and then played Jonny L. Hurt You So and I was hooked.

    I liked the Prodigy for a while, but I had no idea what type of music it was or that there was anything else like it.

    I happened to stumble upon the pendulum remix of voodoo people, which I really liked. I didn't realize Pendulum was an artist name though, I thought it was a remix by Prodigy themselves.

    In some obscure video somewhere I heard blood sugar, actually had to google the words said in that cheesy intro! Eventually found out the name of the genre, and I've been hooked ever since.

    i liked the prodigy, esppecially the pendulum remix of voodoo people. then slam became big on the scene but i didnt no wot dnb was.

    i was 16 and my bro comes back from a rave going on about this music that his friend dj benji k showed him and its amazing. he says its dnb and tht he loves airplane by sub focus and dj fresh escape from planet monday album. i googled dnb and the artists he mentioned and the rest is history. never before had i heard music so inspiring and original, (well to me anyway)

    first tracks i was big on and drew me in were:
    marky - LK
    sub focus airplane
    high contrast - brief encounter
    omni trio - renegade snares (hc remix)

    What are we talking about here?
    When did DnB appear?
    Is Jungle, Jungle or DnB?
    Do I have the Long Don Ron if I say I got into DnB throughout Joey Beltrams Mentazm?:)

    i really started to get into dnb when i started mixing. before that it was going to a lot of raves but not really knowing what got dropped so it wasnt as exciting. a mate had some pioneers so i went over to his and had a go, seemed very addictive so i got some technics and started doing it myself

    free parties! although it was mostly Hard trance and Hard tek, whenever a rig played DNB i was there right at the front of it. A party in Royston in the Midlands really set the dnb love off for me, think it was Ez Rollers - Ready For Love (Clipz mix) that hit home first. and then, as everyone else says, the rest is history!

    oh and gotta mention Pendulum even though there b-rass now. big up masochist.

    Years ago I was a big garage head and thought it was the be all and end all...
    But I had a few mates who were into jungle / dnb and it was just through listening to stuff they were playing I got into it and it slowly took over.
