    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.

    but it subsequently took me about 2 1/2 - 3 years to get into it 'properly'

    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
