Nine is the classics of techstep, incredible sound, greatest hit for all times!

Don't get me wrong The nine deserves its place as a top drum & bass tune but for me metropolis by Adam F has the edge.It was produced a good four years prior to the nine and believe me everybody just stood and stared in a what the fuck expression when this dropped.

The Nine is officially one of two tracks (with 1998 "Shape the Future" of Optical) giving birth to a techstep d'n'b branch.
A pure musthave for every DJ regardless of style in d'n'b.

Man I hated hearing this tune 100 times a night. Lazy djs loved it though.

just like alien girl this tracks simplistic elements are what make it so good as they are done with devastating effect. a great track if your out stomping to b-lines or wether your just listening to tunes at home. even greater track to get in the mix as it goes with anything. an absolute classic and a must have for any dnb collection.

'The Nine' is a storming drum and bass tune and was voted the best drum & bass tune of all time on Drum & Bass arena. It is a testament to the darkcore sound and gets played today at every major club night. Using a deep two-step beat and a darkcore, almost 'Jaws' sounding bassline it really does make you stand up and take notice. A tune that many have and many want! Thank you for the re-release.

The nine is a semi-simplistic Dnb song. However, it is one of the best Bad Company tracks I have heard to date, and it deserves "Hall Of Fame Status". I say this because its dark partly-progressive sounding beat is matched perfectly to the ambient and synth noises.
The Dogfight is, as Njorda said, a massively underrated tune which deserves more respect.
Props to BC for releasing the Nine, a tune which can bang in the club no matter whos spinning, or what the genre is, and a tune you can listen to at home.
