Ok, this thread is only going to ring bells with people from the UK here, I dont think USA had a rave scene in the 90's? This song was Huge in the underground rave scene in the early 90's

Anyway, I found an old track recently after 20 + years of never knowing what it was called and more or less forgetting about it, It's called "the master plan by dyewitness, It was MASSIVE in the 90's and all but forgot about nowadays, I was 13 when i first heard it, but there was no internet and underground rave music was never mentioned in the UK top 40 charts so i never knew what it was called until recently when i stumbled across it and did some research.

The words are " when we were growing up we were taught to believe that everyone was created equal in the masterplan"

Still rings true today me thinks?




On further research, And something people who recognise this song might not know, The lyrics were sampled from a song called LEE AARON - Barely Holdin' On" which was produced in 1985!



Who would of thought they were talking about the "masterplan" in 1985?

Again, This post wont appeal to everyone, But for those that know, They know

We absolutely had a Rave scene in the early 90s. I remember going to the Kingfish in the early 90s which was a mad rave scene.

We had something akin to a rave in the late 80s but not quite the same music.

My knowledge of the UK Rave scene in the 90s is limited to stuff like this.


I was a rock drummer at the time so wasn't really into Rave although I did partake in the culture that surounded it ... Ahem , if you know what I mean.

Remember Nine Inch Nails?
die krupps
Front242
Probably some of the most popular.

There were so many bands I can't even remember anymore. I know I'll remember many more after I hit send :p

Ah, I remember eberneezer scrooge, The music wasnt as "defined back then, it was a mix or breakbeat, dance house ect but not so much rock, but from what i have heard the rock scene wa just as big a blast, just out of interest, did the rock scen do the "illegal warehouse events"?

Those news reports of the illegal raves were the biggest advertisement that raves could have back in the day



Theres nothing quite like getting drunk, having a good time and breaking the law at the same time

I did the rave seen in germany/europe from 90 -92..
These vidz and music are tame in comparison.

Hell.. Pamphlets were handed out at raves informing the attendees on how to use/party on X

THOSE were the days... Loong gone of course

Since i received a star for fhe last post I will elaborate a bit.
I would skateboard 20 miles on german back roads to get to said raves with friends..
The raves were so societal and indoctrinated they would start on Thursday and end Sunday.

A revolving taxi service would begin early Friday morning and bring ravers to their homes.. Pick em up after so many hours and bring em back to the rave up until Sunday end.. (Which of course lasted longer for those who had no Monday jobs.)

I was amazed after meeting some DJs in 91 who had literally had custom wood boxes to hold thousands of cds of quality euro techno artists ..

In 91 techno was thriving and sculpting the audible landscape i hear and am a tad sad to hear today.

Sorry if I done this wrong but although I was slightly late to the party time wise I still grew up on this... Also currently at the chill out area at westfest I won't go further into that

I was too young for the 90's rave scene unfortunately, I know it well though.

A good number of songs were old songs spiced up or songs with lyrics from movies, I still listen to the stuff.

for anyone who knows where the words from this song are from




Check out some of the early Helter Skelter tapes on youtube, Colleseum and Afterdark are good too

Yep that's your typical sampling etc whilst remixing/making a tune, hence why I love the hardcore scene you never know what songs going to be dropped next into the mix

Exactly, I was lucky enough to grow up with two brothers that were big into the scene, from Rotterdam hardcore to Spanish trance and everything in between I sessioned to them all.

But the happy hardcore will always have my heart, never liked MC's much but MC Livelee, MC Junior DJ Daz Attack will always have a special place on the mic for me. Wish I was 10 years younger so I could have heard



Songs like this

yes we did... The rave scene was huge in California, Chicago, NYC in the 90's. Growing up in CA, we had a massive underground rave culture, synthesizing the hippy and electronic sub cultures. I was going to all manners of warehouse, beach, and forest parties in the late 90's in San Francisco.
