The Scotchman - Happy Vibes is what its all about & it sums up what bouncy techno is all about, it also shows that Scotland & Holland had similar tastes as its a scottish produced tune on a dutch label. There is also a remix that Scott Brown played a few times on dubplate, however it never got released. Every release on Babyboom Records is amazing, however this one is the best imo & it got plays from happy hardcore & gabber DJs alike from DJ Vibes & DJ Dream to Brisk & Clarkee & all of you Kinetic & Rez heads will remember this one!

Happy Vibes is one of THE best Happy Hardcore tracks ever made. This was made during a Golden Era of Happy Hardcore/Bouncy Techno and Scott Brown was the king, or at least a Scottish prince! At this point in time Scott could do no wrong, and Happy Vibes is proof. The kick drum is not too distorted and not soft, just right in my opinion. Oh and THAT melody! The main melody in this track is fantastic, it definitely gives me happy vibes! Another example of Happy Hardcore with no cheese, an absolute classic!

One of the songs associated with the start of 'bouncy techno' A-side is just as it says and gives you happy vibes, the song starts off with a good quality bassdrum which is perfectly applicable to the genre, it then goes into a classic tune and just gets better and better as it goes on.
Both B-side songs are quite dark and hard although very very good they should have been put on the Dwarf label and he should have done remixes of Happy Vibes.
