    I was born in the late 90's but man this genre makes me want to have lived the entire 90's... Wish big beat was still big today, but I guess what big beat was to the 90's, dubstep is to the 2010's. What a shame. And my personal favourites? Propellerheads, Junkie XL, The Chemical Brothers & Fluke.
