    I just started collecting vinyl records a year and a bit ago when owning Frederic Robinson - Mixed Signals digitally was just not enough, and having a CD collection didn't really appeal, and I've been hooked ever since. Probably not my most prized record anymore but I think It'll always hold a place in my mind as a thing that got me into collecting.

    Some of you guys probably have a more interesting first record than I do so, what was your first drum & bass record? And your first record, if it wasn't DnB.

    Camo & Krooked Zeitgeist LP. Didn't order it but my CD was lost in the mail so they sent me a signed vinyl and that triggered my collection of dnb records and some by a few bands including Enter Shikari.

    I won the Abstractions (a night that the Ruffhouse lot used to run in Bristol) competition for their Dispatch night. Won the Transit 1 LP as well as a bunch of other stuff. From then on I just wanted more and more

    I got into DJing late so when I finally did get decks, I bought a stack of records out the local shop's dollar bin to start practicing. Most notably was one of the seven plates from Armageddon. The one with Konflict - Beckoning.

    Got a crate with 80 records in it for $80 from some dude from Dunedin back in 2011, most them were duds, but I was hooked after that. Stopped using Serato all together and only mix vinyl now. Im broke but happy!

    I love Armageddon LP! Roadblock (matrix remix) :banllama:

    I am not entirely sure to be honest what my first record I bought was, all I remember was it was online.
    I remember my first time buying from a record store as I picked up Sabre and Survivals Omega King EP amongst other bits around spring 2009.

    boogie times tribe - dark stranger remix - was my first. i was like a dog with 2 dicks when i heard that in the shop.
    although that's probably jungle not dnb, but lets not get into that.
