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?)

Oldschool 90s Acid Trance Mix

Caddyshack and I went to see Paul van Dyk at the Commodore last Friday, and he dropped this crazy acid 303 build that went on for a good three minutes before finally crashing in. It reminded me of the version of Aldo Bender’s Acid Enlightenment that was on Fatboy Slim’s On the Floor at the Boutique, but heavily remixed.

And so it started me digging through the record collection and tracking down a few lost classics. These tracks are from some of my favourite rave memories.

(And, yes… I’m way behind on posting the last couple tracklists. Life’s been busy, but this one just couldn’t get missed!)

dj Caddyshack Dirty Trance Mix

Caddyshack played some stuff too. Although I didn’t write it down, because I’ve been pretty lazy this past couple weeks. However, I know he played the Deadmau5 – Psynapse intro track, and then later in his set he player the Armin van Burren Intro mix of Omnia & IRA – The Fusion and then a little later he played a couple tracks by Crystal Method followed by a couple tracks by The Loops of Fury. I ran down what he played in the full podcast.
