The guys must have been in a time machine, this classic will never die and will always be remembered as the track that revolutionized acid house music.. a piece of brilliance that captured the hearts of everyone and still rocks to this day..!! EPIC

This track epitomises everything that was positive about the original house / rave / hardcore movement. It never will be repeated. It never CAN be repeated. I'm going there: this is the perfect tempo, the perfect vibe, the perfect piano solo, the perfect arrangement to reach that oh so precious, quintessential ecstatic release that people searched for in warehouses and fields at the time. It still evokes that feeling in me. I've had my vinyl copy ever since it was released and it will probably outlive me. Good, because I want to pass this truly wondrous piece of music onto my kids.

THIRTY years on, in a world of right wing extremism, puritanism, excessive political correctness and covid separating us all, spin this tune and I guarantee you'll forget about all that just for a moment and feel some happiness.

Yes, Hardcore Uproar is that fucking good.

Main Keyboard Part Is Sample From Precinct 13 ‎– Listen To Your Heartbeat, Not Many Know That But Yes It Was Sampled Off A Record Aswell As The Star Wars Samples, Just A Few Key And Pitch Changes Were Made To Created The Classic As We Know It, And Both Mixed By Scouser Steven Proctor i Think

I was 10 when this came out, and at that time I wasn't into music - I was into computer games. My Spectrum 128k was my most prized possession.

One day, this came on the TV and the connection was instant. It was as if the music in my computer games had been pulled out of their flat, virtual existence and fleshed-out into full-colour, 3D, real life. I couldn't believe what I was hearing.

At that time I had no idea about the rave scene or even electronic music in general. I didn't even know that you could buy this type of music! To me it was just some music that was on a TV program once. A year or so later I overheard my older sister playing rave tapes and straight away it was like "YES!!!! THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT I'VE BEEN LOOKING FOR!!!!"

fast forward nearly 30 years, and the Speccy is long gone (RIP), but my love for electronic music is still as strong as it's ever been, and this was the tune that sparked it all off.

some tunes should be played from the very start and not beat mixed in - this is one of them.
5 stars, not for complexity of musical ideas but for its simplicity and impact on the dance floor
as moorie says below in his review...rave on

Still sends a shiver down the spine when hearing this classic and then a rush : )

I've wanted to leave a comment on this track for a very long time, but i could never think of the words to express just how much of a difference it has made on my life. I was probably only 13 when i first heard it, the second track on the first house mix i ever listened to, and here i am 27 years later still obsessed with dance music. More powerful than i could possibly have imagined...

Hypnotik - Double U is basically the same tune...same release year and both Together and the Italian producers of Hypnotik are claiming to have written it. Way too similar for them to have come up with the same bass, pads, piano and very similar synth bleeps.
Rave on!


December 24, 2016

Forever going to be one of my all time favourite old skool tunes of this era, nothing short of large large large tune. the piano riff is amazingly epic. i could listen to this track 24/7, shame music evolves with sadness not greatness.


November 7, 2016

They don't come much bigger than this, an absolutely massive tune, that rocked many a dance floor
Big string into (that seems to make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up), crowd noise, piano and vocal samples all used to full effect to create a truly great track.
Big Hacienda track & defiantly one for any old school fan.
