Hi All,

I've only recently discovered dnb and have settled on it being my all time favorite genre. I've spent many hours exhaustively searching the catalog's for the latest and greatest tunes and have come to realize some of the best may lie in the pre 2000 era. The only problem is it's difficult to find a lot of that stuff easily cataloged (I mostly find new releases through Juno's/Beatports weekly new releases) and i end up youtube browsing which is quite monotonous.

I'm mainly interested in the funk/intelligent/liquid type dnb but i feel the deeper/darker rollers as well, here is an example of some of my recent finds (this year/last year and pre2000:

I've explored some of LTJ Bukem and understand his crew were pioneers in this area, and whilst they are great tunes i feel there's a lot more I'm missing out on that someone else would have more expertise in. Would anyone be interested in hooking up and helping me appreciate and discover the early days? Feel free to send me a PM.

Looking forward to taking a trip down memory lane.

FYI, if you don't have the time to hook up feel free to include any notable tunes and of course, if there's a website that has this information please do include it.

Cheers

Just wanted to drop in and thank you guys for pointing out this sweet swag of goodies, there are some pure gems in there and i'm starting to feel like i'm more aware of the kind of quality tracks being released during this period.

Thanks again
