1990. The rave scene has arrived from Ibiza and warehouse parties are exploding across the UK bringing phenomenal wealth to the organisers. In Manchester, best mates Matt and Dylan are in their early 20’s and long to be more than just punters. As the government moves to outlaw the scene, it’s now or never and they quickly rise through the ranks to join the promoting elite. They are taken on a wild journey from the exclusive VIP rooms of London clubs to the outrageous parties in Ibiza super-villas and the hedonism of Amsterdam. It’s everything they dreamed of and more. But as their success continues to grow, they attract a more dark and sinister world. Matt and Dylan start to drift apart as they are forced to question the dreams they set out to achieve and their once solid friendship.

Hardcore-Projektz 19 VINYL release is in progress.  The last vinyl release was in 2009 , when Whizzkick stepped up to the plate and smashed it with the "Believe Ep", but now Hpz is back once more with a "Strictly Vinyl" release from T Man , Darkus & MC Mad P (who needs no introduction to seasoned ravers and dj's). It features 3 tracks , one colaboration between Darkus and T Man ( who was very much involved in all the early hpz releases), an absolute monster of a track by T man that's sure to rumble a few speakers shortly and a third track by Darkus with vocals from MC Mad P (Top Buzz ) . They are waiting for 100 pre-sales and then they'll press the vinyl that will be a limited run (no more than 200 even if they sell out). Head on over to www.hardcore-projektz-shop.com for the pre sale on the main home page.

For all those that like their ravey breaks, the latest in the series of Future Rave Anthems is now available.  Mixed by forum member DJ Vinyl Junkie, the 3 mix set can be purchase via Amazon or from the Can You Feel It Media website as digital downloads.
