Ultimate rave anthem?
I’m 38 and I just missed out on the free party scene of the early 90s in warehouses, quarries and beaches. I remember my elder brother going to them and I saw the flyers wondering what they were. I got into it when the scene moved into the clubs. We used to drive to Life at Bowlers in trafford park, I’ve also been to angels, wigan pier, orbit to name a few. Older, I now listen to drum n bass & dub with artist favourites including Freestylers, Krafty Kuts, Bukem, Nero and Flux Pavilion. It’s very interesting to look back at how dance music developed, a lot of these tunes given above bear a lot of resemblance to contemporary tunes.Posted 4 years agoloweySubscriber
Gonna smash the **** out of this thread when i get home
Got over 18 gig of old house from late 80 and early 90’s at home.
Happy days with so many menories. Massive warehouse party in Nelson getting raided… pandemonem. Beach parties at Star Gate Blackpool after getting out of Shaboo. Watching the Sun come up on Knutsford Services after a night at Shelleys with about 1000 other loons!

Glad this went down well. Was listening to acid in 89/90 as a 14/15 year old. Then at 16 rave was uh-mazing. Tape packs, flyers, hanging out in Ruby Red Records in Wolves with Neil and the crew. Truly good times, plenty of smiles and the obligatory after party round some randoms who might have a copy of a Fantazia video.
Just got a bit nostalgic as we moved to Oz and I saw a flyer for an “old skool” night.

“Alright mate, what’s your name? Where you from? What you on? 😆
As for the after club place to go to it was Rivington services for us. Well it was until the police closed it off after rival drug gangs tried to take over the “rights” of selling gear on the carpark and tear gassed the place 😯 😥banjax34Memberstu1972Member
