For me it was back in 2003, when D.kay, episilon & Stamina's Barcelona was getting played on the radio loads, I didn't really think of it as Drum & bass, just a proper feel good tune. It was a refreshing style compared to the rock and garage that I used to listen to all the time.

I used to rinse the song all the time after recording it off the radio onto tape, and then didn't listen to anymore DNB until I was given Westfest 06 by a mate.

I haven't listened to Barcelona for about 4 years, because I think it may be ruined now I've heard more dnb, and want to keep it in my memory as it was 5 years ago.

Did anyone else have any tunes that hooked them in?

used to listen to a few dnb sets here and there, and some mix cds.
but i knew my life was over when i heard bingo sessions vol 1, namely it's on it's way into true romance. when that b line dropped i'd experienced something i never had done before.

pure sexual chocolate.

***EDIT***

The first track ever that got me locked to dnb was "its Jazzy"........ WHAT A TUNE!!!


Loads mate..... Loxy's "Nightmare"

Bad Company early relases.... when i first started DJ'n... the first 2 vinyls i ever bought were "The Nine" and "Planet Dust".... but while i was doin the MC thing i was well into their early stuff.....

Also not forgetting "ED 209"... cant remember who it was by, but to this day i still rinse that track on live sets... "please put donw your weapons.... you have 20 seconds to comply!!" hahahaha

when I first started listening to tapepacks, I played the drop of No Time 2 Love - Marky & Bungle over 180 times, I was shocked when I saw the playcount on itunes

Up next came Chase & Status - Hurt You
