    Anyone remember Baron? He was flavour of the month for a year or two back then... I think Total Science brought him in...Squelch was his big hit (annoying tune I thought)
    this was a big tune too (though again, a bit annoying, though ive really warmed to it recently)

    Upped this Ruud Awakening from July 2001 here (tunes such as Spaced Invader, Up All Night, Human B-Bop). Seems to fit on this thread :)

    (also reminds me just how much I miss Ruud from around that time - hold tight Syrus and Chillum wherever you are!)

    Always been about the Craze and Baron VIP remix of 'Nosher' for me - the scratched up vocal sample really takes it to the next level imo :cool:

    Can't find it online except for in mixes - starts coming in at 43 mins and 56 secs:

    Is the Droppin Science label any good? I seem to remember it had a good reputation but I never had any of their records and there are too many releases to wade through, any recommendations...

    No love for the Ram Trilogy and Ed Rush & Optical stuff from that time? I suspect that has aged quite badly.

    I remember buying a lot of it and trying to keep up to date and all that, but losing the enthusiasm as 1999 went on. I went off travelling for a few months over the millennium and when I came back I just couldn't be arsed with it any more and got properly stuck into reggae.

    I quite liked some of the "liquid funk" stuff and there were some good vocal tunes coming out in the early noughties iirc. Also a brief outburst of more electro-y bits from people on Certificate 18 like Polar, Klute, Pilote etc.

    ETA - actually there were some great tracks on that "Planet V" boxset V Records put out.

    The other options seemed to be breakcore (ok but you had to be in the right frame of mind), garage (too bling for me), nu breaks (boring) etc.

    Yeah, that Planet V comp was decent - was listening to that again a few weeks back.



    Remember hearing this on plate at a d'n'b night in Sheffield when I was a student and it really tearing the place down. Got 2 or 3 rewinds.

    Overall, I seem to remember having a bit of a break from dancefloor d'n'b somewhere just after that Planet V comp coming out, and until about 2001 when tunes like Casino Royale and Spaced Invader came out. In between I was listening to a lot of UKG tbh and artist albums on Reinforced (being on the experimental end of d'n'b and leaning towards broken beat - Sonar Circle, Alpha Omega, Paradox, etc.)

    basically all tunes by danny breaks, who never really did it for me...there MUST be a couple of good tunes in there somewhere

    never liked Ram Trilogy on the whole, but they hit the target bang on three time for me - each an anthem:
    No reality

    Evolution

    Electro Melody

    bline on Electro Melody makes my needle jump :D

    Ed Rush & Optical had many a great moment....

    I thought Ram stuff was a bit boring generally

    Yeah, having been such a big big label for me from 92-96, I can't remember anything really interesting me 97/98 onwards and I stopped checking their stuff out.

    braindancer not for long

    Those Moving Shadow comps got a lot of play at this time - 98.1 98.2 etc etc. I think 99.2 was my fave - starting off with the massively rinsed Dom and Roland remix of Terrorist:

    A quick skip through that, and with the exception of the Code Red track, that is everything I hated about d'n'b during that time :D

    Hey ho - I fucking loved all this stuff! And the CDs were only a quid!

    Actually the red one (98.2) was the fave in our house I think - because it had some poetry at the beginning and also this:



    which had a cracking Ram / Andy C / Origin Unknown remix also;

    Gerry1time pities the neurotypical

    98.2 is great, but the first 6 or so tracks of 99.1 are still one of my all time faves. Listened to them on a walk to the shops this morning funnily enough.




    ETA There's also a Total Science and Riya mix that was on a cover CD for Knowledge Mag that's similarly jazzy and superb, but I'm jiggered if I can find it online, so I don't know if it's technically from this time or not

    I remember playing the first one and a mate saying that whilst she hated people who said that dance music all sounded soulless and the same, this did basically sound like that.

    Hard to disagree.

    Also found this 12 for a quid recently which is very nice if you like the summery female vocal thing: (2003)

    Sounds great but I've not been to a d&b bash this century!

    I was listening to a pirate station this weekend and the DJ was playing stuff like this and talking about it like it was "old school classics", and then he was talking about trainspotting 2 coming out and said "I was too young to catch the original trainspotting when it came out".
