The Past & The Future [Raveskool Recordings]

https://www.beatport.com/release/the-past-and-the-future/2083884

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.

Time for a Sunday round of big beats!!! For your Funky Breaks fix Rory Hoy Vs Kitten & The Hip have just the medicine with ‘Dirty Little Secret’ on Super Hi Fi Recordings. The Fort Knox Five remix of ‘Dirty Little Secret’ is No1 on our playlist.

And for the lovers of House Music we have plenty of goodies for your ears. The rising talent that is Chris Sammarco dazzles us with a dreamy slice of oldskool US House on the Kidology imprint, it’s called ‘I’m A Fool’ and we love it!

Black Tantra ‘Big Trouble’ on the We Jack imprint is a delightful number with summery pianos and husky vocals. Tough Love have a suitably tough number out with big whomps and twisted vocals called ‘Friday Night’. Rhythm Staircase ‘Let’s Go Dancing’ out on motion has a mid 90’s Tribal House thing going on with a hypnotic thud, Garage style beats and hypnotic horns.

When Skapes is in the joint you know the ‘Music’s Pumpin’ and it most certainly is on this nice thumping roller. And to get the warehouse party heaving is Glen Coombs on the excellent Criminal Hype imprint with the essential ‘Warehouse Jams EP’ featuring remixes from Leon & Vibe Killers.

Next up on our playlist is another great warehouse jam, namely Eyes Everywhere‘s ‘FiveO’ taken from the ‘Family & Friends Vol One’ compilation on Desert Hearts Records.

Simma Black have some of their signature chugging Tech House out, this time Maur take the reigns with their ‘Nocturnal Volume EP. W.H.A.T.A.M.I spread the feelgood grooves with some bright and warm piano house called ‘Domino’ out on MVMT. On a deeper tip is the wonderful sounds of Black Coffee with ‘Buya’ remixed by Loco Dice out on Get Physical.

On DeFunkt Recordings, Stayin’ Low & Chinooq go in with big euphoric pianos just the way we love ‘em. Check out their ‘Al Fresco EP’, it’s a gem.  Kryder whip up a ravey storm with a stomping remix of Bob Sinclair ‘Someone Who Needs Me’ on Spinin‘. Fat!

It’s out now on Substance.  Hoodrat‘s ‘Come Back EP’ on DeFunkt Recordings features the gorgeous Garagey groove ‘Love Me Because’ featured at No21 in our playlist.

JONO dons some shiny Techno boots for the dark pumping ‘Knocking On The Sky EP’ on DualOrbit Recordings, get your stomp on for this one!!!  Raveskool Recordings have only gone and released the best NuSkool Hardcore track of 2016. You can thank the talented duo of Monks & Mort for the rushin’ ‘ardcore of ‘Don’t You Want’, it’s massive!

Another incredibly talented artist, one we have tons of love for is Motivbreaks. He has a new EP out on VIM containing two lush tracks that combine 92 Rave, Breaks, House & Garage all in his signature haunting yet euphoric style.

On the mellow mid-tempo bass tip is Eliphante whose ‘Catching On’ gives Major Lazer a serious run for the money when it comes to downright catchy sounds. The Art aud imprint has the second of it’s ‘Secret Rave EPs’ out featuring oldskool hardcore style tracks by Anybody Anytime,  G-23 + RivetMylerTextasy who clearly loves the classic video game ‘Streets Of Rage’
