if you excuse boiler room thing, it's actually very nice all hardware live set early 90s thunderdome style
Post it on here if you want track listings, some very knowledgeable people on there:
I'll stick that mix on now and have a listen
I did give it a quick listen but I guess I'm not in the mood. Too much early hardtrance and hardcore in my ears at the mo
How did I not know about that? I'm usually the one that does all the digging for track ids, searching for the samples and then finding mixes or messaging record labels and stuff. But most of the older stuff is long gone it's just a case of waiting for someone to upload something to youtube. Guess I'll have to sign up.
Well, that blew the cobwebs out!
A bit much for the Barbershop it seems but I'll be revisiting this one on the turbo this weekend. A quick skip through has a few old favourites for me 😁🙌🙌
Yeah my progression to techno was: metal-gabber-hardcore/rave/happy-trance-everything.
There was a local metal radio show (Metal Militia?) I used to listen to which was followed by a techno show. One night DJ Aster? Dj Astor? Dj Asta? played a gabber track that had sampled a Slayer guitar riff (Rob G maybe) and so the metal show mixed into this super fast 4/4 slamming beat with thrash metal guitar and it went from there. He played all kinds of stuff - gabber to things like Visions of Shiva - How Much Can you Take.
So yeah, in the early days it was lots of harcore, hardtrance, rave, happy hard, etc.
If you can ID any let me know. I just added a load to my youtube faves thanks to "thefreespirit" account.
This is the kind of stuff I was listening to, but maybe a few years earlier
How the fuck this stuff made it to small town Oz I'll never know.
I love it when styles collide
Aha, here's another one from back in the day. I don't think I've converted this one from tape to mp3 coz I haven't heard this in years
Shit's getting wild here. :D
Yeah a bit much for me that set. Reminds me of the Mark eg technodrome sets which was usually my cue to leave that room. The Jen-e set is a lot like the stuff Marc smith used to play 95-96 so if your into that he did some great sets at Fusion.
When I'm opening any of those sets you posted up in the app I'm seeing a full track listing though which is good as you rarely get any on the YouTube mixes
I'll have a look. It's currently a balmy 195 bpm in the house of terror hippy thanks to that Pavo set. Fucking mad shit. Have it on tape but never got around to ripping it to mp3. It's terrible music but it's so fucking high energy and it reminds me of my youth so it's still good.
BPM @ 200+ with the classic, Pessa Pessa
My missus just asked me what the fuck is going on and why am I so hyper. 8-D
Totally forgot about this but it was everywhere at the time. And a bit of a respite :-)
@goodhead - nice couple of tunes there.
Sounds like it is popping off in @hippy 's house tonight!
Love this tune
@goodhead two bangers 🙌
29 Years ago today was the Saturday night at Castlemoreton. Probably the defining night of free party raving of all time (in the UK). The party went on for about a week, we were there Friday-Monday after seeing it announced on national news!
The pic below (taken by a mate of mine) is taken on the Saturday night in the DiY tent, I am one of the people in the pic (but not saying which one!).
The new Absolute LP - Wonderland - is very good, it’s like a history of raving, the older heads on here should appreciate it
Listened to most of that at work this afternoon, some good tracks on there - thanks
