    I quite fancy writing about the latest bike pants. Though not the modelling of them by Chipps and Mark.

    as we appear to of strayed off rave & hardcore into classics of the time – this was huge on the free party scene, beloved by ravers and crusties alike!

    I remember my sister heading to an all night rave years ago and she brought me back a mixtape from the night (I was too young to go so instead would listen to Pete Tong at the weekends while she went off clubbing and to raves). These are the only two tracks I remember from it.

    Whilst I have concentrated on the apex of the sound “Hardcore” from around 1992, seems so quaint now! and is interchangeable with Breakbeat. Rave is all encompassing and all sorts got played at 90’s raves.

    For example:

    Hip Hop at a rave

    Early Trance derived from Techno before it went all supersaw, that Three Drives track above!

    Is it House? Incidentally missed off the playlist because it appeared as a link not a video for some reason?!?!

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mGNKdhSQ9Po

    Defo Prog House

    Loads of Acid House throwbacks and early Jungle Hardcore crossover tracks.

    It’s all fair game IMO.

    There was a few niches/placeholders. I’m sure there was one called 4-Beat, think it was what became Happy Hardcore. Less said about that unfortunate offshoot the better!

    SMD#1 mashup walked that line reasonably well…..

    Check out the old school raver you tube channel, it’s full of classic mix tapes you’ll know inside out

    Repressed:

    Remix of Sooth My Soul. Pushing the remit a bit what with it being Jungle and not particularly proto!

    Reminds me of a bit of trivia from about 10 years or so back. One of the big old-skool Jungle labels Moving Shadow were such obnoxious arses with people on YT, in the days before all the corporates and their handlers locked it down! To repay their arseyness someone posted their entire catalogue of HQ vinyl rips as a set of torrents for all who wanted it.

    Had this stuck in my head since watching Spaced S1 ep6 this week.

    There’s more truth in the five mins or so of its club scene than any other screen depiction of club/rave culture.

    Made me come over quite emotional, it did. Go and watch it if you have Netflix.

    I booked DJ Rap at Manchester Academy back in the early noughties, fantastic DJ, played proper party sets as opposed to the ‘product pushing’, own label type of fare that was the habit of nearly every drum n’ bass DJ by then.

    Where it all began..

    I remember being at the Hac the first time this was ever dropped by Mike Pickering.

    A few had cult status but were largely too repetitive to actually listen to now!
    2 BOASTERS, A DIGESTIVE & A JAMMY DODGER – We Are About To Take LSD
    Noise Factory – Who Are You
    80 AUM – Mindcontroller (No Sense Version One)
    Kromozone – The Rush (Sub Bass Mix)
    Mate from college used to record london/essex pirate radio stations (cyndicut/pulse) that I’d listen to death to (Big shout out to Squid. Squid the fish.) Talking of Pulse… heard this on there along with Andy C up there.
