    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

    Mate, one of the tunes I had in my head was this one.

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

    ..any ideas?

    Thank you for Alien Girl :)

    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.
