Insane & Mind – Taking A Chance

Insane & Mind - Taking A Chance

NuRave just the way we love it from Insane & Mind on their HOH Recordings imprint. Let’s go back to 92′ with new track ‘Taking A Chance’

Following a string of excellent releases on their own label and remix work for the likes of Digital Pilgrimz, rave warriors, Insane & Mind gift us with a big rushy blast of 91/92 era inspired NuRave called ‘Taking A Chance’

An electrifying vocal intro starts the dance of oldskool breaks, a tantalising tease into pianos that pay homage to X Ray Experiments ‘Take No Chance’ In fact, we get all kinds of cut up callbacks to the ravin’ days from Mariah Carey vox to the infamous ‘Can’t beat the system’ refrain and a subtle not to Terrorize ‘It’s Just A Feeling’

If you even needed further proof that the sound that filled fields and large venues back in the early 90s truly never dies, this ready for the reload NuRave banger is that proof! Hardcore never dies, when the old warriors lay down their synthesisers, a new group is always ready to take the flag and Insane & Mind are flying it high!!! You can’t beat the system so go with the flow!!!

The Past & The Future [Raveskool Recordings]

The Past & The Future [Raveskool Recordings]

42 tracks representing The Past & The Future of Raveskool Recordings featuring artists Paul Cronin, DJ Rave In Peace, Richard Champion, Gareth Monks and more…

If you’re one of those staunch types who think breakbeat hardcore ceased to be of any merit after 1994, you’re in for a pleasant surprise when you listen to Raveskool Recordings’ compilation ‘The Past & The Future’

There are bona fide modern rave classics to be heard on this album like the joyous piano anthem ‘I Miss Your Loving (DJ Absolute Remix) by Sweenee & EzeeTee. Redshift gives 1991 a fresh take with ‘Ruffer’ while on the other side of the spectrum, Yudaidhun roughs it up 1994 stylee with ‘That Style’

DJ Rave In Peace pops up a few times on this awesome LP but ‘Stand By’ is by far the craziest and most fun of his featured tracks, a stompathon through 1991 Belgian Techno waters.

The album features a number of contributions from hard working Richard Champion. A few highlights from his offerings include the chunky rolling breaks of ‘Come My Selecta’ and Acen influenced ‘Finally’

The hardcore captain himself, Paul Cronin has some fine work on display with tracks like the insane ‘Take Me Away’ and super crunchy ‘Ya Might Get A Rush’

Plenty more breakbeat hardcore excellence can be found on this collection thanks to Gareth Monks, Master Mash, DJ Cdc, Nayim, DJ Mark C and more leading names in the rave revival.

Our favourite track? Well, it has to be the brilliant ‘I Knever Knew’ by Monks N Mort, a rushy trip back to 92′ in the style of Ramos & Sunset Regime.

Something From The Future 4

The Rumblist – Broken In Four

The Rumblist - Broken In Four

Buy/Stream Links:

The Rumblist returns to Top Drawer Digital to reclaim his throne as the maverick master of experimental breaks with the ‘Broken In Four’ EP

‘Bite The Hand’ starts things off, a fiery clash of dubstep influences and evocative orchestral drops. ‘Do That Shit’ is just as merciless as the previous track with powerhouse oldskool rave synth stabs, jungle breaks and super gritty bass!!!

‘Para Init’ has real steel with a FAT think break and ten-inch python flexing electro bass with a 90’s Euro Rave feel. ‘Watch The Bass Bins Blow’ is a warning to be heeded. This final track ventures into mid 00’s era Nu Skool Breaks territory. The oldskool electro beats carry the back breaking weight of some bassbin battering audio warfare!!! You have been warned! Now get some of the finger lickin’ good bass n’ breaks!
