Romantech: Auckland, New Zealand based provider of deep Drum'n Bass and break beat driven downloads, info and events.   ROMANTECH ARCHIVE

This is the Romantech archive, we're I'm working on a long term project to tell my story and record my experience with whatever content and materials I have available to create a narrative of what I've seen and learned.

For now, I'm just building the skeleton but over the years I will be pushing out beyond just my music and creative history and development to cover other projects I've been involved in, my school memories, activism, design, conceptual and personal influences, family history, lots of general autobiographical archives and content prepared for presentation

For now I'm focused on music and getting a lot of photos and content I have from the 90's and early 00's.

Did you used to know me, Matt Turner / Horide from Grey Lynn, Richmond Rd Primary, Pasadena Intermediate, Western Springs College, AUT, Socialist Workers, Data:Bass, Reality Compound, Soul Science, got content to share?

"Special Times” coming between “Result” and “Such Heavy Wings” was my second attempt at producing a demo for wider circulation, unlike “Result”

This featured my newest tunes at the time “Girlfriends” and “Positive Vibes”

But also featured a number of tunes written in late 2006 “Sweet Ambrosia” that was featured on Jess and Emma's “Liquid Recreation” show on George FM
