"Urban's Rave Zone" was the first full length CD I bought shortly after my 13rth birthday, and was I proud to own it! It was the time when rave music was topping the German sales charts. This was the music we knew from Viva and MTV, this was what we were talking about on the school yard.

Urban used to be Motor Music's sub label for techno and dance music back then, serving as a distribution for top German techno labels like Low Spirit, Fire and Peace Records. Most rave tunes that very commercially successfull and got airplay in the middle of the 90s in Germany were released by Urban, and this sampler is a perfect example, featuring almost every track from the genre that was big in late 1994 / early 1995.

RMB, Raver's Nature, Members Of Mayday - reading the tracklist still brings a smile to my face. I can listen to this today and still get a buzz from the fast, pumping beats, uplifting melodies and goofy vocals ("this is dedicated to all the ravers in the nation!"). I spent hours looking at the cover artwork, the computer animated bear blew me away back then. This album opened up a whole new world of music for me, and I can only recommend it to everyone who is into mid 90s German rave.
