Yeah, didn't hear it until about 98, in JPs house if I remember correctly. Fell in love with CD2 straight away.
Yes mate, I think it was at my house - you introduced me to dj shadow and hardkiss, so I guess we're even!
Like many other people, I was into hardcore when it came out, so going to Bowlers and listening to Sy, Slipmatt etc. I went round my mates house one night and he had bought a new album, which he said was the best mix he'd ever heard.
I took one look at it and thought - firstly why is it on cd (we only listened to bootleg mixes on tape) and secondly why is he listening to pop music (it had m-people on it)
I generally took the piss out of him, but he sat me down, put cd1 on very loud and said "just listen". When "song of life" finally kicked in, that was pretty much it for me.
Haven't looked back since...
