In the USA, Really? can you find any of the old songs on youtube?
Yes, I was there in the 90s rave scene. I can post a ton of old rave beats from the US.

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

We had an epic true underground scene in ca. Ca has had one of the foremost counter cultures globally going back to the 60's with the hippy culture. 90s the rave scene was as big as anything in Europe. We had all manners of pyschedelic scenes and insane stuff going on. I've partied across the world. California is as good as it gets. I live in NYC now.

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
it's hard to know a real underground scene if you weren't a part of it. The music is great, but it's an entire sub culture. And clubs and most techno now aren't what real raves were back in the day.

Ive compared notes with some cali women and ive been told some enviable stories. πŸ‘

The techno viking meme was from 2000 and i was glad it showed a closer to life view of what tech music spawned in people that grew from early 90s euro roots.. A glimpse at least.

Never got to go to the club in Berlin, but was well into the Tresor label guys back i the mid-to-late 90's. Seen a fair few of them when they were playing Glasgow or Edinburgh nights.

Neil Landstrumm '97
Awesome drop at 0:44-ish



Cristian Vogel


Jeff Mills (not sure if he was on Tresor for this tune, but he was at some point. Also a fine producer and example of American Techno from as early as the late 80's - Detroit Techno anyone?)

I see you posted the bells while I was composing my post. Yeah, you guys had a techno scene for sure. Green Velvet/Cajmere, Derrick May, the Horrorist, and Marshall Jefferson are just a few examples.

I used to go to a lot of quarry/abandoned ware house parties back in the mid-90's, but it was a much crustier vibe than the video in the OP. A lot of Lucy-heads.....







Sorry for posting so many Vids. You've triggered memories of a time I remember most fondly!

Another belter! Saw Mills a fair few times at a local festival, but the last couple times I wasn't that impressed. That was about a decade ago though!

Here's another classic from over your way, all the way back to '87...

My friends threw a rave at Valley Forge Convention Center, which is basically like six giant ballrooms with folding walls. They booked the whole thing, it was filled to like 5x capacity, they had to barricade the doors to keep people out. Local police and fire were ape#, but couldn't do anything. I'm guessing 5000 inside and 5000 outside in a facility rated for 500-1000.

It was nuts.

In NYC also, we had raves in abandoned warehouses and other interesting venues. In some warehouses you had to wear dust masks since it was so dusty. Later it was a style. In those days people had big pants, candy necklaces, Polo/Ralph Lauren shirts, pacifiers, big piercings, and colored hair. You also had a store here L.S.D. - Liquid Sky Designs which was sort of the headquarters which was also where all bus trips left to attend raves in different states. Maybe you saw the robot logo. It was run by DJ - Soul Slinger.

That Aphex Digeridoo track was the classic break beat sound in the early mid nineties which came and left.

I think I went to that party. That was Special K / Circle productions from Philly that did the It parties. What year was that?

edit:

Yeah I was right.. I just found an article:


It’s been a long time, but Circle (formerly Special K) is back with another "It" party. Since the mid-’90s, unforgettable raves like "Bust It," "Do It," "Chocol-It" and the notorious "It" (held at the Valley Forge Convention Center) all helped to shape Philly’s electronic music scene with class and taste..
- article

man I have a good memory.. Actually our bus broke down on the way to that party.

Now maybe not but up until about 2006 my area had a big rave culture of it's own.

NE England had a big Spanish rave scene, still does to an extent and nobody can tell me the UK hardcore scene didn't exist after the 90's I was old enough for that


DJ's like Scott Brown, Hixxy, Sy, Recon, Sharkey, Gammer, Ham and many many more were still BANGING the hits out and sessions way up till 2010 at least. Still today record labels like Pont Aeri and Makina are exporting to the UK. Rave isn't dead it just evolved.

Speaking of evolving I'm sure Scott Brown is still kicking new records out on his multiple labels.. I might not have sampled the early stuff in person but I have a brother with a record collection to envy and he is bangin at old sets. The newer stuff? Well lets just say I'm HTID
