Re: Seeing as the youth of today are...

Re: Irish rave scene/old skool?

In Northern Ireland, doesn't Eddie Wray put on quite a big music festival type thing? That was Planet Love, bit too cheesy trancy for my liking but it wasn't that bad, there have been much better festivals on here over the years, couldn't really tell you nowadays as im not clued up on the scene as ...

Re: Irish rave scene/old skool?

Yeah met lots of Irish guys and gals well into their hard techno, Sunil Sharpe is getting pretty big over here (England) these days as well. :) Technically he is a brilliant DJ, is generally a warm up DJ for big Techno acts but many times he steals the show. He is around since about 2000 so not rea...

Re: Irish rave scene/old skool?

And they have Riverdance as an equivalent to UK's Raindance, don't they? Only started years later,in 1994 as legal all nighter, before there were outdoor raves around maypoles. ;) But on the serious note it's worth to look at the Asylum parties in Dublin and wicked DJ Pressure sets :) https://www.y...

Re: Irish rave scene/old skool?

NI or Republic? i think sadly some influence from the paramilitaries too although i don't know enough to comment! From what I remember, they were a bit upset about Catholics and Protestants coming together on pills and having a good time, and so forced clubs to switch to House music instead of Happ...

Re: Irish rave scene/old skool?

I reckon being 44 years old and on the scene in Dublin almost from the start i might know a thing or two lol. I am not exaggerating when i say at one stage in Dublin in the 90's it was one of the best cities in Europe to go raving, the sheer amount of amazing clubs to go to was a joy to behold. I st...

Re: RIP Diane Charlemagne

Sad news a very talented vocalist. Inner city life remains my favourite Jungle tune of all time, it was groundbreaking and i remember seeing Goldie/Metalheadz live in the Point Depot in Dublin in 95 and Diane would have been on the vocals for inner city life, it was a Sunday and only about 500 peopl...
