    Friction @ Renegade Hardware 2009 Area, Vauxhall. He was battering the dub of My World which is just about all I can remember.
    Then the next time he played at Hardware ( a year later??) last mix of the night Kingdom >> Stigma, reloaded, place went nuts.

    Saw Noisia in Room 2 of Matter at a Hospital night few years back, thats pretty much as good as it gets for all out carnage, although i've seen Noisia a few times this was just ridiculous.

    Who needs videos when you have memories etched in your brain.

    Ha very true you just re-live the moment over & over in your head!

    Matter was such a sick venue. I was gutted when it closed! Fabrics more or less the only place holding it down these days.

    Dub phizix in the tunnel at motion for run vs ram. Was a belter, that tunnel is 100% made for phizix tunes. Also strategy taking the piss out of people in the crowd was sick

    Don't think I can agree more, all other venues around london attract crap line-ups full of boring overated djs and pathetic mcs.

    What do you define as a good line up? A lot of the nights I go to the MC's just host instead of unleashing their ego on a crowd of 500 people who really don't give a shit how much money they have or how many guns they have.

    Not sure if above statement is trolling...

    Well said JHSE23, last time I noticed London IS where the DNB scene is strongest. Just look at Renegade Hardware at the weekend, you wouldn't get a lineup like that outside of London. End of.

    & again well said Sam. The whole screaming down a mic thing is dying out with the good MC's, they let tunes breath and have a natter when its necessary.

    good responses so far but what really does make a set the best you ever heard?

    One of the best for me in recent memory was Metalheadz @ Fabric just before xmas.

    Dillinja was dropping bombs oldskool style. For me personally having a varied set of old & new tunes gets me going.

    Dbridge @ Metalheadz boat party Outlook, even though I was chucking my guts up banger after banger was played...one never to forget.

    Goth Trad @ Melkweg in Amsterdam has to be one of mine as well. First and only time I have heard Anti War Dub on a big sound system

    Youngsta's set at his rinse CD launch was a bit special. The whole event was special. It was the first time Kryptic Minds ever played Badman VIP. When I heard it come in I was like yeah fair enough its the original, big tune. When it dropped I nearly ate my foot. Fucking huge! Felt privileged to have been there.

    But yeah Youngsta rewound Biome - Propaganda like 2 or 3 times lol. The reaction for that tune was crazy. He's defiantly the best selector at that tempo. Probably the best DJ as well.
