Well we all know how it all began, well I sort of do, I didn’t really get into rave until 1991. But do you believe it all started with Paul Oakenfold and three other dJdoos going to Ibiza and seeing some dj play Chicago house or bleric beat or what ever you called it back then in 1987, taken ecstasy for first time, then bringing the sound to London then Uk followed?? Think it’s a myth it was all down to them, think there was more going on than that! For me Paul Oakenfold was someone who made a few good records then commercialised the hell out of trance and end up making cheesy pop music! No hero of mine!

What you reckon, what are your stories how it began?

Nope.

For a start, Rampling, Oakenfold et al went on their holiday in 1987 - Jack Your Body and Love Can't Turn Around were already in the top 10 in 1986. The Idea that they brought house music back from Ibiza is nonsense. Oakenfold had been to Ibiza before, and Trevor Fung had been playing and organising nights there since 1982.

I'd argue more that they brought the E-culture and hippisyish ideals back with them, and that did help kickstart the rave scene, so they undoubtedly played their part, but not as pivotal as is made out.

For music, Noel & Maurice Watson, Trevor Fung, Mark Moore, Mr. C, Colin Faver & Jazzy M should get far, far more credit for introducing the music to the UK (as well as the likes of Mike Pickering, Stu Allan in Manchester).

Yeah some of those classics mentioned are on YouTube on totp’s lol 1986, also what was that classic that had those lyrics ‘the music just keeps going on ... and on’ think it said, nice house classic but can’t really remember who did it.

Yup, this is my take. I think that rampling and oakenfold packaged it into the idea that rave became. Basically it was the notion of balaeric that became rave not house on its own, which like has been said had been played for a few years already in the uk, but at nighta that were playing soul and hip hop alongside. The house in that 85-88 period wasnt really that blissful at all but when it got combined with the other stuff played in ibiza, which is what was happened at Shoom then this is why it's seen as so important as a gateway to rave.

The material on that album's not that great IMHO, too much weight is given to acts that people would know. There are loads of really great Balearic records by obscure Europeans that are far better

Tulio De Piscopo - Stop Bajon

Just had a thought, what was the first records to have those rave stabs or synth sounds, was it someone like Todd terry or something? Wasn’t just inner city good life in th late 80s was it or what ever it was called?
