Benchmark Rave sets? was created by Restless1
Ratty - Fantazia NYE '91
DJ Producer - Universe '92

Those are just two sets that I've heard and seen countless comments about how legendary they are, and how they changed the game. And I agree.

Anyone got any more sets that they think are landmark sets within the scene?

Would have to say some of the early Tob Buzz sets (2 Blacks and a bubble) along with the Hype Dreamscape 4 set.

The Hype set seems to be one that sits in lots of peoples 'top ever sets'

I like SY @ Obsession 3rd Dimension
Plus in many SY interviews i have seen he specifically mentions this being the one that many people bring up

One set that's always stood out for me is Easygroove @ Fantazia Second Sight. If you ever need to prove to somebody that rave music has variety, this is the set to play them. It's got so many different styles in it, and as one of the first tapes I ever heard it definitely shaped my tastes.

Carl Cox @ Fantazia Big Bang? early showcase of that sound which would go on to dominate up north for a few years - but also signs of the different direction Carl Cox was going in...

Easygroove @ Helter Skelter Dec 93 - the one with the CS gas. i'm sure there's other Easygroove ones...

that Bukem set with the "hardcore it, jungle it" sample. is that Dreamscape 6?

those Hype studio mixes? Ruff Stuff?

I suppose a good sign is if any of the tunes in it are more expensive because they were in that set!

Bass Generator @ Rez Event 2 - another northern one i'm afraid but that's definitely been caned...

Is it Ramos @ Dreamscape 4 or 6 that everyone raves on about as being up there in regards to my question?

I forget which one it is, but it's up there. I think you put it to me one day, Traffic Cone. You can just listen to it and tell it was a game-changer.

Have to agree with alphawave that seduction universe set was/is my fav. The energy in that set is something else in my opinion

these are not my favourite sets, but i think they are game changers as they changed the direction of the scene
Dougal - dreamscape 8, the first anthem bashing set of happy tunes regardless of how old they were
oakie - Goa mix, cause its different

top buzz, fantazia new years eve - pure class, the whole set just flows with quality mcing too
sy - obsession the dream, just perfect time for sy in 93, mixing dark and happier tunes, quality set
slipmatt, fatazia new years eve 92/93 - shit event, but a good set which gives me goose bumps listening to it.
fabio book of love, first set of the night and set the tempo for the entire night

definitely slipmatt fantazia nye 92/93. bit of a cheesey set, but it was NYE and the mixing is rapid and with some scratching. it's up for download on slipmatt's soundcloud.

ramos DS6 is a great set. I don't think it's elevated to classic status though.
