Rave Breaks Are Making a Comeback

I couldn’t have been happier a couple weeks ago when I was checking out the TrackItDown breakbeat top 100, and lone behold, half of the top 20 breakbeat tracks were classified as rave breaks. I got into electronic music in the early 90s when groups like Acen were churning out warehouse bangers like Window in the Sky and Trip II the Moon. The Illegal Rave compilations were another favourite of the time and groups like Hackney Hardcore and Urban Hype were belting out classic rave anthems like Trip to Trumpton, all well before the classic trance anthems of the late 90s.

So when I saw new artists like E-Lab Rat and Northbase resurrecting the classic rave breaks that I grew up with, I couldn’t wait to put together a set. And here it is. Oldschool rave breaks interwoven with new hardcore breaks and phat dubstep basslines. This mix is intense. Is you have a pacemaker, you should probably change the batteries before going any further.

(Did I mention that everything Blazer touches turns to gold?)

Dirty Dubstep Breaks and Drum and Bass with Live Guestmix by Vancouver DJ Glassball

This we we had Vancouver’s own Glassball in the studio for a live guest mix. Glassball plays psytrance and dubstep (although not at the same time). You can follow Glassball on Facebook to keep up with his latest mixes and club dates.

My set is a collection of tracks that just don’t seem to go with anything else. You know the ones. They’re great, they just never seem to fit into the set you’re working on. Well, if you collect them for long enough, you can just mash them all into a set of their own, like this!

Caddyshack finishes things off at 180 bpm and somewhere around 300 wpm (wobbles per minute). If you’re asking yourself, what the hell is a wobble per minute… you should just listen to his set. Between Glassball and Caddyshack, you should have it figured out by the time you make it through this week’s podcast. It’s not for the faint of heart ;)

Hard Dance Mayhem with Guyver Wragg and Log:one

Last week’s show was just a warm up for this! If you like hard dance, you’re not going to want to miss this episode. dj Smiley Mike puts the spotlight on Guyver. Guyver is Guy Mearns who hit the scene in 2002 with Man On The Moon and has been releasing dance-floor smashers ever since, mainly on Tidy Trax and Tidy Two. He’s gone by a few other names, most notably The Riot Brothers which released Flashback / Guyver Unit, a favourite that I still have on vinyl somewhere.

Caddyshack had actually planned out a set this week, but just couldn’t make it through my set without throwing it all out and putting together his own Hard Dance set for the second half of the show. His set features Wragg & Log:One. Wragg is Toby Veale and Log:One is James Logan. They caught our attention soon after they hit the scene around 2008 with tracks primarily released on iHDS and Atmosphere Records UK.

And if you get all tingly when you hear some dubstep dropped in where you least expect it, you’re going to love the second half of Cadyshack’s set. Especially the Bashy & Napt track right at the end that throws things right back to the days of Pump up the Jam by Technotronic. Let’s be honest, where you even born in 1989? ;)
