    No doubt. I'm starting to question the validity of the charachter in the video now. And the "rave" they go to looks as fake...there's something not right about it which on first impression I put down to there being cameras in their faces but now I am thinking more along the lines that they were paid (with not very much) actors/thespians.

    Shame about the narrator. Sounds like he's got a carrot stuck up his arsehole or sucking on his own jepson.

    Why is everything so f***in jungle dnb / uk garridge centric with most of these UK rave documentaries. I know DnB has been a massive part of the UK underground music scene, especially in the southern half of England and London. But UK film producers can't seem to go into detail about the early scene (before jungle) and seem to want to jump onto jungle asap. The bias is sickening.


    Demographics. Urban music is rooted in it, and that's big with the youngns?

    It covers things like dub, world music (or a kind of westernised remixed version of), deep house, actualy it's just about this dude who bought a cutting machine and does dub plates for small labels.

    P.S. A bit of useless trivia: Warlock mentions DJ Anton in that interview, who happened to be on the same stations as himself 'Innocence FM' and 'Pulse FM'. He was also on 'Prophecy FM' in late 1990/Early 1991 and also Chillin FM for quite a long spell too. Was openly promoting Pulse FM long before it started over the airwaves when he was still broadcasting on Chillin FM. He was all over the place. Very prolific!

    Reading back at this, I forgot to add that Anton was most famous for playing on the legendary Fantasy FM 1989-1990.

    This film will begin to rewrite the history of how dance music evolved in the U.K and beyond.
    In Britain’s very own motor city, Coventry, a “Motown moment” happened but in electronic music. A youth and club culture movement that would set the foundation for the multibillion-pound worldwide industry dance music has become.
    Coventry was the epicentre with the 1st legal warehouse parties and the 1st legal all-night dance club, that were conceived by its disaffected youth.
    A real musical and social revolution was created, reconciliation from the climate of violence in the city against anyone seen differently on the streets and terraces. A youth, social and drug revolution not seen since the 1960's.
    The film is factual, honest and documents the working-class heroes of the city. How a radical shift in support from the government led acid squad and police orchestrated the U.Ks first legal events, ultimately leading to the birth of a legal Amnesia House and the legendary Eclipse nightclub.

    Cheers for that. Nice one. I have come across a couple of those in the past. Any bonafide 1991 clips at all?

    There's nothing like a good local rave. Back in '89 there was an illegal one in some adjoing warehouses in an industrial estate which was practically within a couple of miles of where I used to live until it got raided and stopped by the old bill for good. I suppose the most local legal rave to me was near Picketts Lock (Dance '91), several miles away from where I lived. But it wasn't exactly a regular event. Or Bass Box or Roller Express in Edmonton, not too far from Picketts Lock. Usually had to go into town or leave the big smoke for more regular events.

    This is a bit of a general clutching at straws request for everyone here. Since the question I'm going to ask is related to rave footage I believe it's relevant and saves me from starting a brand new thread.

    Does anyone here remember some rave footage which was uploaded during the formative years of youtube, say from 2006 onwards perhaps a couple of years later. Of a mid 1991 or summer 1991 rave event held somewhere around the midlands.

    I can't remember what the DJ line up was, probably the usual suspects, but I think Carl Cox was more than likely on the bill. Everyone looked completely cained, yes I know, that narrows it down a lot... But there was this quite a freaky bleach blonde girl in a pony tail, if I remember correctly? Wearing some of the most awful looking leotard with knickers showing through, I've ever seen, and at one point rubbing her arse against this light skinned black dude. It wasn't a very attractive sight in any case :P

    Music played was mainly UK style hardcore but also tons of Euro hardcore techno as well. At one point The Beginning - Stingray (Stinger Mix) came on and everyone went absolutely wild. Haven't come across it for years, I'm guessing it was taken down a long time ago, perhaps 7 odd years ago? It doesn't help that I can't remember what the name was or who had uploaded it whatsoever. I lost the bookmarks/favourites when my own old Youtube account was taken down back in 09 or perhaps a couple of years later. I'm pretty certain it wasn't the Eclipse.

    I thought it might be one of the events at the Telford Ice Rink rave or The Rag Market. But I've checked the uploads on youtube and can't see the sequence of events or the interior or 'characters' of that video.

    I know it's a tall order, but anyone with any ideas will be doing me a favour as that's some of the best footage of a 1991 event I'd ever come across on the internet, minus the nightmare couple that is :(

    Bah! I think I'll give it a wide berth TA :P
  • drgiggles 7 months ago

    I watched it, it is a documentary from a commercial "edm: (is that what the kids call it) perspective. Many other documentaries are way better than this. It starts with disco, goes to paradise garage, then chicago house, then to uk summer of love, then paul oakenfield bringing djing to U2 concerts, then Tiesto at the olympics, then Martin Garrix as the new dj king taking his throne from Carl Cox....hee hee.....Ed Sheeran used to dj on fisher price turntables as an infant, so he is featured.....Just kidding....He is making a track with Martin Garrix.

    I wasn't impressed with Beats. I found it drawing a way too stereotypical impression on the rave scene - as if solely drugheads and not too clever ones altogether were into this. Too onedimensional for me therefor, even if some humour is in and visual aspects are fine.

    In fairness, as someone who has a similarly obsessive brain - I don't think we appreciate how unusual it is to have detailed knowledge about this sort of thing nearly 30 years after the fact. Human memory is unreliable, that is a known fact. It is not a normal thing to remember this shit so many years later, I think it's only fair to acknowledge that rather than complain about bandwagons.
