I dunno why Matt Clarke bothers with this website anymore, it all seems truly dead now doesn’t it. I think when I hit 40years of age I’m quitting listening to oldskool or nu rave for good. I’m fed up of hearing half hearted tunes being made and dj sets the play the same shite day in day out. Hardly anyone visits this forum anymore or reply’s to messages anymore. Sorry to have a rant and don’t blame Facebook as I don’t use crap like that. Seems one big disappointment at the moment. Think I’ll quit and this will be last post from me. I’m bloody done tbh!
Last rave I went to that had oldskool was great - on the happy hardcore side sure but I heard loads of obscure classics and didn't hear the same tune twice. And music wise there seems to have been more decent stuff in the last couple of years than in ages.
Yeah the forum's dead but...it has been around for so long. Only so many discussions you can have about oldskool, record buying, raves etc before people get bored. Even leaving aside the changes in which social media networks people use and what they use them for; forums do also just have that natural lifespan, to some degree. Don't think it reflects the music at all.
