Hi to all. New to the forum and looking for a bit of guidance. After a couple of years of Techno, I would love to find someof the old dnb tunes I used to listen to back in the day (my day that is :)).

I used to go to AWOL nights and the likes back in '98-'99 and I'm looking for the paticular 'sound' i loved from that time. Having looked into a bit myself, I'm thinking it's leaning towards the techstep side, maybe touching on neurofunk (which I understand was the natural progression of things?)...but having listened to a few true neurofuck tunes on youtube...full on neurofunk is a bit harsh compared to what I remember.

I've got all of these tunes in my head...just hard to obviously find them as they lack any lyrics - which is usually just the way I like it, apart from the odd sci-fi quote or some obscure line like that :)

I just listened to Ed Rush and Optical's 'Travel the Galaxy', which is very much like what I am blabbing on about, but if anyone could point me in the right direction, that would be of great help!

Cheers

There's another one that sounds similar that has some obscure line where says something like "shipwrecked"..

Found the five tunes I had in my head, cheers for your helps guys.

They were:

Dillinja - Hard Noize
Ed Rush & Optical - Alien Girl
Bad Company - The Nine
Mampi Swift - The One
Andy C - Warhead Trilogy rmx

Why do some refer to Hard Noize as Fluid..is it something to do with DJ Fluid? Made it 'his' tune? :/ Oh and is all the above Techstep or what?

Again, cheers guys.
