Doubt many will agree, but Roni Size - Trust me.

Disco Dodo..... 




I wouldn’t say Disco Dodo was overrated as such. I remember it totally split opinion when it came out – many many heads thought it was utter turd.
 
Personally I still think it’s quality. Properly original dancefloor tune.


It's OK. I tried listening to it fully just now and it gets very samey, very quickly. Probably only useful for double drops or just the intro.

Recharge is way, way better IMO.



It was called jungle in those days, not drum and bass. That came later

Adam F Brand New Funk

I bought it at the time as it would've left a gap in my V collection.And when I heard it coming in during Goldies set at 20yrs of Headz that was my cue to go home

Yeah it was a weird 50/50 one, you either loved it or hated it. Can't knock it for its originality, but vibe-wise was a bit meh for me, went over my head

Yeah maybe that’s the reason it split opinion. Those who were regularly going out and hearing it on a system seemed to love it, those who weren’t didn’t... maybe?
 
It’s not something I’d ever listen to in isolation or even put into a recorded mix, but I would definitely play it out. To me it was a pure dancefloor tune, but I thought it was class because it was so different.

To me it just sounds like Sidewinder with half the tune taken out and some pretty dreadful horns put in.
 
Each to their own tho.

Disco Dodo went like this for me...
 
1st listen: Wtf is this mental tune
2nd: Yes that tune again, hectic madness
3rd: Hhmm yes
4th: DIE
5th: I will kill the next DJ that plays it. I imagine this is the soundtrack to hell.
 
I cant think of a tune that got so old so quick.

Sub Focus X ray
As soon as I hear that intro I cringe. Overplayed at the time

Renegade Snares doesn't really do a lot for me
The One
Planet Dust
Just Wanna Be
Drift to the Centre, annoying sample
River Nijer, See above
Laughing Gas, No idea why everyone goes so crazy for this
 
That's probably enough upset caused.
 
i do own, and occasionally play laughing gas and just wanna be but they are pretty average imo.

Oh yeah and as i say everytime in these threads, anything where Dillinja gets on the mic. Just No. Awful.
 
Only one i can jut about cope with is the love is not a game remix. All of BBB and the majority of Cybertron though - lol, ridiculous.
 
And Manos. Stop please.

I love the build up but the main body of the tune is fairly average imo.

Same with Metropolis for me.

Someone else mention Warhead... Same with that too. Build up was big, after the main drop is rubbish

The first 3 or so minutes of metropolis is exceptional, spine tingling. Once the tune is up and running though it ain't all that

I told you how to rock is the only decent tune on Cybotron imho.
 
All Aboard is ok, the rest tho Go Dillinja, Why, Together, Human B Bop, Valve Sound
 
All pretty pathetic
 
Don't mind Blaze It Down.

I love most of Cybotron. Yeah it is all pretty samey, but still good.
Together is quality.
 
Cybotron was definitely the beginning of the end though yeah.

Mampi Swift – Hi-Tek
 
Seems to get a reload every time it gets dropped, but I find it unbearably annoying. Most Mampi tunes are turd actually I reckon.

'Cybotron' itself was probably the best of the lot followed by 'Nasty Ways' but they're all great with some serious memories attached to each (maybe making me biased to the LP?!)

Shout out to the forgotten gem 'Never' which sadly didn't make it to wax at all:

Jonny L - See Red. People got upset when I said this last time but I stand by it. It's just a lot of stupid and bad honking.
