This, the second volume of the legendary Hit The Decks series, is brilliantly balanced between UK breakbeat rave and European four-to-the-floor techno. As with the first Hit The Decks cd, Megabass and Two Little Boys provide the mixing and they prove to be more than up to the task.

I remember listening to this cd years ago and naively thinking the mixes were done on a pair of 1210's but of course they are totally digitally mixed. This realization did not make me think any less of the mixes, however. In fact, you have to marvel at the skill the mixers put into such tight, expertly executed edits of the tracks.

Megabass start the cd off with their mix, and it begins in EPIC fashion. Industrial sounds and atmospheric background noise surround you and a vocoder voice utters the immortal lines…

"The year is 1992. Hardcore has become the most energetic form of dance music. Who controls the present, controls the past. Who controls the past, controls the future"

It's spine-tinging to listen to once it hits in with Industrial's anthem "Tribal Trance". Truly this is the authentic sound of oldschool rave, so you can forget all those cash-in compilations that sat alongside Now 31 in Tescos.

The mix continues with a smooth polish and excellent tunes, some absolute classics and others you'll want to search for on vinyl because they're just THAT good.

The Two Little Boys mix starts off very well, quickly chopping between UK and European styles easily. Their expertise in clever editing is where they excel over Megabass, most notable in the incredible way they take the riff from Praga Khan's Injected With A Poison and cut it up to emulate the riff from 2 Unlimited's Get Ready For This. Their style never gets tired or stale, and it is no surprise that Amadeus Mozart went on to help form the legendary Hard House label Tidy Trax.

A simply legendary CD, which not only helped confirm my undying love for oldschool rave but also introduced me to many, many tracks I may never have discovered otherwise.

This is NOT "nu-rave".
