we had this thread so many times but it's always fun to reminesce

but it was kokney thug at the time it was released. such a feel! so weird cuz it was something totally new. i had never heard anything even remotely like it. i was totally unfamiliar with garage or dnb so i had never even head wobble bass or anything befor that tune. shit was mindblowing. it was also fun cause at least here a few knew what dubstep was so i had this thing "of my own", which has always been a big thing for me in music, at least when i was younger. to have your "own ting"

Not the first tune I heard, but the one that made me want to find more.

Ramadanman - Blimey.

I think it was Twissup? I didn't know the tune at the time had heard it on a 2005 mix from Youngsta at FWD>>. Was sold instantly though.
I make music as Forsaken, you can DL all my unreleased (and a couple released) bits here.

Skream - Dub Period and Dutch Flowers, both featured on the Dubstep Allstars vol. 4 compilation which was one of the first dubstep records I got a hold of

Joker & Rustie - Play Doe was also a big one for me early on

Love all three of them still!

actually yeah this for me too, Rubber Chicken was the first dubstep tune I ever heard which I thought was pretty cool because it sounded like really lazy/stoned dnb, my mate then lent me Fabriclive 37, by the time it got to Girl From Codeine City I was 100% sold.

I was pretty late to the game, being a young un. I had been listening to some tear-out brosteppy rubbish, but I remember hearing this on Rinse before it came out and thinking "This is it." I texted in asking for ID but didn't get one, took me ages to find it.

Benga - 26 Basslines

Datsik - Gizmo & Havoc

Sukh Knight-Gangja Dub

These were the tunes that piqued my interest the most when i was first getting into it. From there I slowly started listening to Distance, Cluekid, Kromestar, Tunnidge and eventually Kryptic Minds..
